Forward-Looking Statements

The statements in the paragraphs above are forward-looking statements made under the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and should be read with the "Risk Factors" in Actel's most recent Form 10-Q, which can be found on Actel's web site, www.actel.com. Actel's anticipated results from its restructuring plan and its projected revenues and operating results for the fourth quarter of 2009 are subject to a multitude of risks, including general economic conditions and a variety of risks specific to Actel or characteristic of the semiconductor industry, such as a failure to fully realize the projected results of the restructuring plan, fluctuating demand, intense competition, rapid technological change and related intellectual property and international trade issues, wafer and other supply shortages, and booking and shipment uncertainties. These and the other Risk Factors make it difficult for Actel to accurately project quarterly revenues and operating results, and could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Any failure to meet expectations could cause the price of Actel's stock to decline significantly. Actel undertakes no obligation to update any information contained in this press release.
