austriamicrosystems’ strong business performance in the second

performance analog semiconductors. Illustrating its leadership in
integrated power management and lighting for handsets,

a worldwide leader in mobile communications. In portable audio,
leading North American satellite radio provider XM Satellite launched
several portable receivers built around our MP3 and/or power
management solutions while SanDisk, a leader in the MP3 market,
successfully introduced high-capacity video-enabled MP3 players based
on an integrated audio front-end from austriamicrosystems. These
successes confirm austriamicrosystems’ excellent position in
integrated solutions for the MP3 and portable media player market.

In the industrial and medical markets, austriamicrosystems saw
further business expansion in metering and industrial automation and
continuing growth from healthcare IC solutions. In the automotive
area, austriamicrosystems was invited to join the consortium defining
next-generation data bus systems in Japan and launched an automotive
rotary encoder product based on its highly successful encoder
technology. The foundry segment continued to perform well serving a
variety of high quality customers with increasing focus on specialty
processes such as High Voltage and Silicon Germanium.

The new design center in Hyderabad, India, commenced operations in
the second quarter, focusing on embedded software and analog-related
digital design. The new Asian test center in the Philippines set up
to support the growing business in Asia-Pacific and shorten supply
chains also started production in the second quarter. To support
future business growth and manufacturing requirements,
austriamicrosystems has begun preparations for the next capacity
build-out step in its 200 mm wafer fab. The modular expansion is
envisaged to increase manufacturing capacity from 6,500 WSPM to
approx. 8,000 WSPM (wafer starts per month) and to be fully
operational at the end of the first quarter 2007.

Looking forward, austriamicrosystems is excellently positioned for
further growth. Based on available information, austriamicrosystems
confirms the expectation for 2006 full year revenues to increase by
between 10 and 15% compared to last year, accompanied by a
significantly higher growth in earnings.
