Commenting on the second quarter, Patrizio Vinciarelli, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Trends discussed in prior investor communications continue to influence our consolidated performance. Many of the market segments and geographies we serve remain soft. A sharp decline in VI Chip unit shipments for the second quarter, reflecting lower than expected bookings in preceding quarters, underscores VI Chip's dependence on a limited number of customers.

"We expect our new product initiatives and expanding market presence to contribute to both a diversification of our customer base and an improved outlook for 2013." Dr. Vinciarelli concluded, "We remain confident our strategic assumptions are sound and intend to stay the course, despite headwinds with specific programs and the economy at large."
