Unaudited key financial data for fiscal year 2007

Unterpremstaetten, Austria (January 10, 2008) — austriamicrosystems (SWX: AMS), a leading worldwide designer and manufacturer of high performance analog ICs for communications, industry & medical and automotive applications, expects revenues for fiscal year 2007 of EUR 193.9 million based on unaudited information, slightly below the previous fiscal year´s revenues of EUR 196.4 million and below previous company guidance. This unfavorable development is mainly due to mobile entertainment revenues from Asian customers expected in the fourth quarter 2007 which were not realized as anticipated and the impact of the continuing unfavorable EUR/USD exchange rate environment within the fourth quarter 2007. Unaudited revenues grew by more than 16% quarter-on-quarter from the third to the fourth quarter 2007.

Despite the lower full year revenues, the preliminary unaudited gross margin for fiscal year 2007 increased by more than two percentage points to over 50%, up from 48% for fiscal year 2006. Given this revenue impact and based on preliminary unaudited information, austriamicrosystems expects the result from operations or EBIT for fiscal year 2007 to be approximately 10 % below previous company guidance.

Notwithstanding these developments, austriamicrosystems is convinced that its strategic positioning in its target markets is excellent and fully supported by key OEM relationships. austriamicrosystems therefore expects 2008 to be a successful year with substantial growth in revenues and earnings.

Fully audited financial figures for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2007 will be available on February 19, 2008 as previously announced.
