Silicon Motion Announces Preliminary Second Quarter 2013 Revenue And Earnings Conference Call Details

TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silicon Motion Technology Corporation (Nasdaq:SIMO) ("Silicon Motion" or the "Company"), a global leader in designing and marketing NAND flash controllers for solid state storage devices and specialty RF IC solutions for mobile devices, announces that based upon its preliminary financial results, revenue for the second quarter is expected to be flat as compared to the revenue for the first quarter, below the company's original guidance issued on April 26, 2013, of up 5 to 10%. Gross margin (non-GAAP) is expected to be in the 47 to 49% range, above the company's guidance of 45 to 47%.

Commenting on the company's preliminary results, Silicon Motion's President and CEO, Wallace Kou, said:

"In the second quarter, we saw demand for our embedded controllers (eMMC) exceed our own expectations along with continuing strong OEM sales of our other controller products. However, with availability of NAND flash still tight for module makers, procurement of our card and USB flash drive controllers from these customers was lower than expected."

The Company will release its full second quarter 2013 results after the market closes on July 29, 2013. The Company will host a conference call on July 30, at 8 am Eastern Time, to discuss its results.
