IDT Reaffirms Guidance for the Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2003

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb 27, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- IDT™ (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq: IDTI), a leading communications IC company, today reaffirmed guidance in its regular mid-quarter financial teleconference. As previously indicated, IDT expects fourth-quarter fiscal 2003 revenues to be flat compared to the third-quarter fiscal 2003 revenues of $79 million.

IDT also announced several cost-cutting measures, including a reduction in workforce of approximately 150 positions worldwide. This represents approximately 5 percent of the Company's total worldwide employees and includes a 10 percent reduction in its non-manufacturing workforce. IDT plans to close its design center in Dallas and five sales offices worldwide, among other cost-cutting measures. These and other actions will enable the Company to reduce its planned fiscal 2004 spending by approximately $30 million. Related to these actions, IDT expects to incur severance and related charges of approximately $4 million in Q4FY03.

"Due to the current uncertain industry outlook and the Company's projected revenue levels for the upcoming fiscal year, IDT has decided to implement these measures to better align our cost structure with anticipated revenues," said Greg Lang, president and CEO of IDT. "With these actions, we expect to be cash-flow positive in the June quarter and achieve pro-forma break-even earnings in the second half of fiscal 2004 without impacting new product development or future growth potential for IDT."
