Revenue in the fourth quarter was $61.5 million, compared with $31.1 million in the prior year period. The Company reported a GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of ($6.3) million or ($0.17) per diluted share, compared with a net loss of ($15.6) million or ($0.43) per diluted share, in the prior year period. The fourth quarter GAAP net loss includes a charge for impairment on investments of ($4.9) million, charges related to the purchase accounting for the acquisition of Integrated Circuit Solution, Inc. (ICSI) of ($1.1) million, a charge to allowance for doubtful accounts for amounts due primarily from Delphi Electronics in regards to their bankruptcy filing totaling ($0.9) million and a gain on the sale of investments of $1.6 million. The total impact of these items was to increase the net loss by ($5.3M) or ($0.14) per diluted share.
For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2005, revenue totaled $181.4 million compared to $181.0 million for fiscal year 2004. The net loss for the year ended September 30, 2005 totaled ($38.1) million or ($1.04) per diluted share compared to a net profit of $3.5 million or $0.10 per diluted share in fiscal year 2004.
"As a result of our acquisition of ICSI, we began consolidating their financial results with ours as of May 1, 2005. The net effect is that our first full quarter of consolidating ICSI -- the September 2005 quarter -- has revenue increasing 97% over the quarter ending September 2004," said Jimmy Lee, Chairman and CEO. "We have strengthened our operating capabilities and we believe we are now well positioned to compete in the low and medium density DRAM market and the full range of the SRAM market. We have also made good progress in non-memory product lines."
The statement of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2005 currently includes an estimated charge for impairment of investments of $4.9 million. The Company is still analyzing the impairment of its investments and has engaged a qualified valuation analyst to assist in this assessment. The investment impairment is the Company's best estimate and may be subject to adjustment as the Company finalizes its valuation assessment. The Company expects to complete its assessment prior to filing its Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2005.

Safe Harbor Statement
Certain statements in this news release may be considered forward-looking statements, including statements related to strengthened operating capabilities, being well positioned to compete in the DRAM and SRAM markets, the estimated charge for impairment of investments, and our belief that we are making good progress in non-memory product lines. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from current expectations due to many factors, including completion of the fiscal 2005 year-end audit, completion of the analysis of impairments on investments, a reduction in average selling prices for the Company's products and a resultant decrease in the Company's gross profit margin, changes in demand for the Company's products or the products in which the Company's products are used, changes in market conditions, inability to expand revenue, inability to effectively reduce expenses, inability to add new products or diversify product lines, order cancellations, and order rescheduling, product warranty claims, competition, the level and value of inventory held by OEM customers or the Company, the Company's ability to secure manufacturing capacity from its foundries, or other factors. Further information that could affect the Company's results is detailed in ISSI's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2004 and its most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2005.
