"Our fourth quarter revenue was within our guidance range despite the rapid deterioration of the global economic environment that began during the latter part of the year," commented Dr. John Deng, Vimicro's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As we entered the first quarter of 2009, the continued weakness of the global economic environment had a significant impact on our customers and our business. Combined with typical seasonality associated with the first quarter and the Chinese New Year holiday, revenue declined during the quarter."

Dr. Deng continued, "Looking back at 2008, Vimicro's overall business remained relatively stable with revenue declining only 6.8%, which was achieved during a challenging time for the economy and the semiconductor industry. Most notable, our notebook camera processor sales grew 92.6% over the prior year and represented 32.4% of total revenue in 2008 as compared to 15.7% in 2007. We also continued our research and development efforts in new product development for current and new markets, such as mobile multimedia, netbooks, smart phones and security surveillance. Additionally, we maintained strong cash and bank deposits reserves with $139.8 million as of the end of first quarter."

Dr. Deng concluded, "For the second quarter, revenue will improve substantially from the first quarter. Vimicro's strong balance sheet, diversified product lines, expanding global customer base and domestic market leadership have been key factors in maintaining our position during this challenging environment. Additionally, our continuous innovation in PC camera, mobile multimedia and surveillance solutions will contribute to our future growth as the economy improves."

Second Quarter Preliminary Results

Vimicro also provided preliminary revenue results for the second quarter of 2009 with estimated revenue ranging between $18 million and $19 million.
