BEIJING, April 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vimicro International
Corporation (Nasdaq: VIMC), a leading fabless semiconductor company that
designs and develops multimedia semiconductor products and solutions, today
announced its unaudited first quarter 2006 financial results.
Net revenue in the first quarter of 2006 was $26.4 million, compared
with $27.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2005 and up 70 percent from the
$15.5 million reported in the first quarter of 2005.
First quarter 2006 net income prepared in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") was $3.8 million, compared with net
income of $5.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2005 and net income of $1.0
million in the first quarter of 2005. Diluted earnings per ADS (each
representing four ordinary shares) were $0.10, compared with $0.17 in the
fourth quarter of 2005 and $0.03 in the first quarter of 2005.
Non-GAAP net income in the first quarter, which excludes a $631,000
non- cash share-based compensation charge, was $4.5 million, compared with
$6.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2005 and $1.8 million in the first
quarter of 2005. Fourth quarter 2005 non-GAAP net income excludes a
$205,000 non-cash share-based compensation charge. Non-GAAP diluted net
earnings per ADS for the first quarter of 2006 were $0.12, compared with
$0.18 in the fourth quarter of 2005 and $0.06 in the first quarter of 2005.
Gross margins in the first quarter of 2006 were 38.3 percent, compared
with 40.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2005 and approximately 34.7
percent in the first quarter of 2005.
"I am very proud of the significant accomplishments we achieved in the
first quarter," said Dr. John Deng, chairman and CEO. "The first quarter
was very special in two particular aspects. First, we continued to
demonstrate the strength and execution capability of the Vimicro team in
the last two quarters since we have been a public company. Secondly, we
demonstrated our innovative leadership by successfully leveraging our
mix-signal expertise and digital signal processing technology for
multimedia solutions to launch new innovative products. We gained further
momentum in the fast growing mobile handset multimedia market, both in
China and internationally," said Dr. Deng. "Both factors are very important
for Vimicro to continue enhancing its long-term shareholder value."
First Quarter 2006 Highlights

* Achieved 70 percent revenue growth year-over-year. This signifies
the strong execution capabilities of the Vimicro team.
* Announced the successful launch of the Vinno Product Family, an
industry-leading single-chip mixed-signal mobile multimedia
processor with a high level of integration of multimedia functions.
The launch was three months earlier than planned.
* The company's strong sales momentum and notebook multimedia
processors continued to be driven by industry leaders such as SONY,
Acer and Asustek.
* Major players such as Skype, MSN and Yahoo! are pushing for video
over IP, replacing traditional text communication or voice over IP.
This trend will continue to increase the demand for PC multimedia
processors from Vimicro.

Business Outlook
The company expects net revenue for the second quarter of 2006 to be in
the range of $30.0 to $32.0 million and non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS
to be between $0.13 and $0.15.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in
accordance with GAAP, Vimicro uses non-GAAP measures of non-GAAP net income
and non-GAAP diluted net earnings per ADS, which are adjusted from the most
directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in
accordance with GAAP to exclude amortization of share-based compensation
expenses. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance
investors' overall understanding of the company's financial performance as
they exclude certain expenses that are not expected to result in future
cash payments. The non- GAAP measures should be considered in addition to
results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a
substitute for or superior to GAAP results. For more information on the
non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned
"Reconciliation of non-GAAP results of operations measures to the nearest
comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.
Vimicro believes that both management and investors benefit from
referring to these non-GAAP measures in assessing the performance of
Vimicro's liquidity and when planning and forecasting future periods. These
non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal
comparisons to Vimicro's historical liquidity. Vimicro computes its
non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter
to quarter. The accompanying tables have more details on the GAAP financial
measures that are most comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the
related reconciliations between financial measures.
