Silicon Laboratories Revises Revenue Outlook for the Third Quarter

September 20, 2006

Revised third quarter expectations for the mobile handset business include both weaker than expected demand for Aero® transceivers due to prolonged inventory adjustments in China and lower than anticipated sales to some ODMs due to demand shifts at their OEM customers. The broad-based mixed-signal business is also expected to be down slightly sequentially due to weaker than expected analog modem demand.

The company also revised third quarter earnings per share guidance. Diluted net income per share on a GAAP basis is expected to be $0.05 to $0.08. Non-GAAP third quarter diluted net income per share is expected to be $0.22 to $0.25. This excludes anticipated non-cash charges of $0.14 for stock compensation expense and approximately $0.03 for the in process R&D write-off from the StackCom acquisition.

Silicon Laboratories' third quarter financial announcement and conference call are scheduled for October 23rd, at which time the company will discuss results in more detail as well as the outlook for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006.
