“During our first full quarter of combined operations with Agere, we took significant steps to accelerate our merger integration, and signed a definitive agreement to sell our consumer products business to Magnum Semiconductor,” said Abhi Talwalkar, LSI president and chief executive officer. “Today, we’re also announcing a global transition to third-party assembly and test contract manufacturing to leverage greater cost efficiencies and provide scalable capacity. As part of this transition, we have agreed to sell our Thailand assembly and test operations to STATS ChipPAC Ltd. for approximately $100 million.”

“Customers are responding positively to the new LSI and our business remains fundamentally strong,” added Talwalkar. “We are winning significant new designs with industry-leading customers as a result of the combination of LSI and Agere, and I am confident that we are well positioned to achieve our long-term objectives. We expect revenue to grow sequentially in the second half of 2007, consistent with typical seasonal patterns.”

Bryon Look, LSI chief financial officer, said, “We are continuing to drive strategic focus and accelerate operational efficiencies. The steps taken during the second quarter and the manufacturing decisions announced today are significant components of positioning the company for profitable growth.”
