Conference Call Information
A conference call will be held today at 7:00 a.m. Pacific Time to discuss the Company's third fiscal quarter financial results. To access ISSI's conference call via telephone, dial 888-556-4997 by 6:50 a.m. Pacific Time. The participant passcode is 1172961. The call will also be webcast from ISSI's website at http://www.issi.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing results determined in accordance with GAAP, ISSI discloses its non-GAAP operating income, provision for income taxes and net income for certain periods that exclude stock based compensation, the amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, gains on sales of investments, and non-cash tax expense. When presenting non-GAAP results, the Company includes a reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the results under GAAP. Management believes that including the non-GAAP results assists investors in assessing the Company's operational performance and its performance relative to its competitors. The Company has presented its non-GAAP results as a complement to its results provided in accordance with GAAP, and these results should not be regarded as a substitute for GAAP. Management uses non-GAAP measures to plan and forecast future periods, to establish operational goals, to compare with its business plan and individual operating budgets, to assist the public in measuring the Company's performance, to allocate resources and, relative to the Company's historical financial performance, to enable comparability between periods. Management also considers such non-GAAP results to be an important supplemental measure of its performance. The economic substance behind management's decision to use such non-GAAP measures relates to the non-GAAP measures being a useful measure of the potential future performance of the Company's business. In line with common industry practice and to help enable comparability with other technology companies, the Company's non-GAAP presentation excludes the impact of the items described above. Other companies may calculate non-GAAP results differently than the Company, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. In addition, such non-GAAP measures may exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance. Management compensates for the foregoing limitations of non-GAAP measures by presenting certain information on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis and providing reconciliations of the GAAP and non-GAAP measures.
