Business Outlook & Management Commentary

The Company expects net sales of $200 million to $210 million for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 ending September 30, 2010. This quarter we have a continuation of the ramp of new product transition and of utilization of overseas operations and integration centers, offset in part by a historically flat seasonal quarter for the industry; the Company expects non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.21 to $0.25 for the first quarter.

"Fiscal 2010 was a remarkable year of growth for Supermicro and this quarter represented our 5th straight quarter of increasing revenues and our 4th straight quarter of record revenues making 2010 revenue 43% higher than last year. We have achieved this growth because we have offered the best product lines in our history that have been optimized to the newer processor technologies that were launched during the past year. In addition, we have benefited by customers who took advantage of the newer technologies to improve their return on investment by investing in Supermicro technology which offers the best performance per watt, performance per dollar, performance per square foot, and the lowest total cost of ownership. We expect this trend to continue," said Charles Liang, CEO and President.

It is currently expected that the outlook will be released at the Company's next quarterly earnings announcement, notwithstanding subsequent developments. The Company may update the outlook or any portion thereof at any time. Such updates will take place only by way of a news release or other broadly disseminated disclosure available to all interested parties in accordance with Regulation FD.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP gross margin discussed in this press release excludes stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income and net income per share discussed in this press release exclude stock-based compensation expense, a provision for litigation loss and the related tax effect of the applicable items. Management presents non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the Company's performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the Company's financial and operational performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, detailed reconciliations between the Company's GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided at the end of this press release. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in the Company's SEC filings.
