National Semiconductor Eliminates 130 Positions to Align Resources With Strategic Focus Areas

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- National Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: NSM) today announced it would eliminate approximately 130 positions across the company, primarily in product line and support functions. This action reflects the company strategically aligning its resources as part of National's focus on accelerating revenue growth in key market areas that require better power management and energy efficiency. As part of this, National continues to develop its PowerWise(R) brand of products, which focuses on analog solutions that provide significantly better power efficiency at the system level.

In the current fourth fiscal quarter, which ends May 25, 2008, National expects to record approximately $10 million of charges primarily for severance, of which the vast majority relates to this action, and a small portion relates to the company's factory modernization effort that was announced on January 21, 2008.

National, which currently employs approximately 7,300 people worldwide, is scheduled to announce its fourth quarter fiscal 2008 financial results and hold a conference call on Thursday, June 5, 2008, at which time the company will also provide an outlook for the first quarter of fiscal 2009.
