Update Regarding Current and Near-Term Performance

Today, the Company is providing an update on its expected results for the fourth quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013. On November 26, 2012, the Company stated it expected to report fourth quarter fully diluted earnings at an essentially break-even level. The Company now expects to record a substantial after tax loss, primarily as a result of certain charges recorded for the fourth quarter. Commenting on the fourth quarter, Mr. Simms stated, "Our earlier expectations of essentially break-even results for the fourth quarter assumed an operating loss would be offset by the previously disclosed gain on the settlement of certain insurance litigation. Our actual operating loss was larger than forecast, and we also recorded several large non-cash charges, including the impairment of goodwill, an increase in reserves for certain inventories of raw materials and components, and a reduction in the carrying value of certain deferred tax assets. Accordingly, we anticipate Vicor will report for the fourth quarter an after tax loss, on a per share basis, of approximately ($0.12) per share. Our final results will be disclosed on February 26th."

Addressing near-term performance, Dr. Vinciarelli stated, "For the fourth quarter, our consolidated bookings declined 27%. We are therefore expecting to record first quarter revenue and earnings sequentially lower than the fourth quarter. Reflecting our near-term demand expectations, we undertook a reduction in force on February 12th, and are monitoring production activity closely, with furloughs of manufacturing personnel within our Brick Business Unit and our VI Chip subsidiary continuing on an as-needed basis. As I stated in November, we believe our financial performance may not improve until after new products in which we have made considerable investment begin to contribute to our revenues and earnings. We began introducing these products in 2011, and will have additional new product introductions throughout 2013. Anticipating that these products will have more favorable performance and cost attributes, we remain committed to our strategy and the organizational changes we have made to support this strategy."

On January 24, 2013, the Company announced the extension, until 5:00 p.m. (Eastern) on March 1, 2013, of its tender offer to repurchase shares of its Common Stock valued in aggregate up to $20 million. The tender offer has been made solely by the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. Shareholders and investors are urged to read the Company's tender offer statement on Schedule TO filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in connection with the tender offer, which include exhibits, the Offer to Purchase and the related Letter of Transmittal. Each of these documents has been filed with the SEC, and investors may obtain them without charge from the SEC at its website (www.sec.gov) or from Georgeson Inc., the Information Agent for the tender offer, by calling (888) 605-7561.

This press release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Any statement in this press release that is not a statement of historical fact is a forward-looking statement, and, the words "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intend," "estimate," "plans," "assumes," "may," "will," "would," "should," "continue," "prospective," "project," and other similar expressions identify forward-looking statements.
