Update Regarding Current Performance

The Company today also provided an update on its expected results for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Mr. Simms commented, "After updating our analysis at year-end, we concluded the Company should fully reserve the remaining federal deferred tax assets on our balance sheet. As such, the Company has increased the reserve, as of December 31, 2013, by approximately $10.2 million, which has been recorded on our income statement as a corresponding increase in our fourth quarter tax provision. While we have yet to finalize the figures we will report to investors on March 13, 2014, this $10.2 million, non-cash increase in our quarterly tax provision will reduce reported earnings (loss) per share for the fourth quarter by approximately $0.26. We currently anticipate the reported loss per share to be in the range of ($0.33) to ($0.35)."

In prepared remarks presented on October 22, 2013, during the third quarter conference call with investors, management highlighted the possibility the Company may need to increase the valuation allowance applied to federal deferred tax assets. Such an increase would be the result of management's ongoing assessment of all available evidence, both positive and negative, that would support a conclusion the Company would generate sufficient taxable income, within the carryback and carryforward periods, to allow for realization of the tax benefits represented by the carrying value of deferred tax assets on the balance sheet. Following well-established accounting guidance, management has recently reassessed projected future taxable income, any scheduled reversals of deferred tax liabilities, taxable income in the carry-back period, and the potential impact of tax planning strategies, concluding it was more likely than not that the Company would not generate sufficient taxable income, within the carryback and carryforward periods, to realize the unreserved deferred tax asset balance.

Dr. Vinciarelli added, "As of the third quarter of 2013, based on the balance of the evidence then available, management determined that no additional reserve against deferred tax assets was necessary, as we were forecasting an earlier return to robust profitability than we are at this time. Sustained weakness in important markets and the loss of bus converter business targeted in connection with ongoing litigation has caused us to take a more conservative view regarding the recovery of our brick business. Additionally, expenses associated with the litigation are expected to continue through the third quarter of this year, representing a drag on profitability. In accord with accounting standards, we have therefore decided to increase the reserves against our deferred tax assets. Keep in mind, however, that positive developments leading to sustained profitability in the future could lead management to conclude some or all of the valuation allowance should be released, thereby creating a non-cash tax benefit, which could be a material amount. Recall that during the third and fourth quarters of 2010, the Company recorded non-cash tax benefits of $5.2 million, or $0.12 per share, and $1.2 million, or $0.03 per share, respectively, due to the release of portions of our valuation allowance against deferred tax assets."

Dr. Vinciarelli concluded, "On Thursday, March 13, 2014, Jamie will discuss our financial position, as well as current and expected performance of our business units. I will provide a summary of our progress with new product initiatives, which continue to support our confidence for the long-term success for which we have planned. Despite this quarter's decision regarding our deferred tax assets, I am very enthusiastic about our future and look forward to speaking with investors."
