Cypress Reports 2007 First-Quarter Results

Statements herein that are not historical facts and that refer to Cypress or its subsidiaries' plans and expectations for the second quarter of 2007, the rest of 2007 and the future are forward-looking statements made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. We use words such as "believes," "expects," "future," "plan," "intends" and similar expressions to identify such forward-looking statements that include, but are not limited to, statements related to demand for our PSoC, USB, West Bridge and Antioch devices and other products, including memories, the functionality and features of our new products, the strength or expected weaknesses in the markets we serve, the stability of our ASPs, the softness in the basestation and communications-related markets, our growth, bookings, profit and revenue, the absorption of fixed manufacturing costs, and SunPower's intent to pursue large scale power plant and commercial projects. Such statements reflect our current expectations, which are based on information and data available to our management as of the date of this release. Our actual results may differ materially due a variety of uncertainties and risk factors, including but not limited to the business and economic conditions and growth trends in the semiconductor and solar power industries, the state of the global economy, the actions of our competitors, our ability to develop and roll-out new products, our ability to leverage our expertise to influence the UPA, our ability to execute on our flexible manufacturing plan, our ability to absorb our fixed manufacturing costs and maintain lower operating expenses, whether our products perform as expected, whether the demand for our programmable products is fully realized, customer acceptance of Cypress and it's subsidiaries' products, factory utilization, seasonality in the markets we serve, our ability to maintain and improve our gross margins and realize our bookings, the financial performance of our subsidiaries, including SunPower's ability to integrate PowerLight and to win large scale power plant and commercial projects, SunPower's ability to obtain a sufficient amount of polysilicon and meet demand, SunPower's production levels and module sales, and other risks described in our filings, as well as SunPower's filings, with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We assume no responsibility to update any such forward-looking statements.

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under GAAP, Cypress uses adjusted-GAAP measures, which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP results to exclude charges for stock-based compensation, acquisition-related charges and other special charges and credits. Management does not consider these charges part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company as they result from corporate transactions outside the ordinary course of business. Management uses these adjusted-GAAP measures internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate the Company's current performance. Most analysts covering Cypress use the adjusted-GAAP measures as well. Given management's use of these adjusted-GAAP measures, Cypress believes these measures are important to investors in understanding the Company's current and future operating results as seen through the eyes of management. In addition, management believes these adjusted-GAAP measures are useful to investors in enabling them to better assess changes in Cypress' core business across different time periods. These adjusted-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from adjusted-GAAP measures used by other companies.
