IXYS Announces Preliminary Estimate of Revenues for the Quarter Ended December 31, 2008 and Suspension of Dividend

MILPITAS, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 6, 2009— IXYS Corporation (NASDAQ:IXYS), a Silicon Valley power semiconductor company, today announced that it expected its net revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 would be in the range of $56 to $58 million when all accounting adjustments are completed.

In light of the general economic decline, many of the company’s customers reduced their orders or delayed delivery into calendar 2009. This caused a significant slowdown in business activity as the December 2008 quarter progressed. To address current economic conditions, the company has implemented several aggressive cost-cutting measures, including, but not limited to, reducing the number of personnel, 10% salary reductions for many U.S. employees (including the CEO and the COO), and 10% reductions in fees paid to the members of its Board of Directors. IXYS is considering additional cost-cutting measures to further reduce its expenses in line with the reduced revenue levels.

To conserve cash, the Board of Directors also suspended the company’s cash dividend indefinitely. The company’s previously announced stock repurchase program remains in effect.
