Maxim Provides Update on Its Restatement

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2008) - Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MXIM) issued the following statement today.

On January 31, 2007, Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. announced that it would need to restate certain historical financial statements to record additional stock-based compensation charges and that such financial statements should no longer be relied upon. At this time, Maxim expects to restate its financial statements from Fiscal 1997 through Fiscal 2005 and the related interim periods through March 25, 2006, and to record additional non-cash compensation expense during Fiscal 1997 through Fiscal 2006 in the estimated range of $550 to $650 million on a pre-tax basis and $360 to $425 million on an after-tax basis.

Maxim also announced that its estimated completion date of the restatement will be delayed from the first calendar quarter of 2008. The Company recently determined that the scope of the project must expand to include a review of stock options granted in years 1995 and 1996, and to conduct further analysis of certain aspects of stock option activity such as employees who either terminated their employ or changed their employment status. Based on these new requirements and the overall complexity of the project, Maxim currently estimates that the restatement will be completed in June 2008, but it cannot give assurances that it will meet this targeted completion date.

The Company remains committed to working diligently with Deloitte & Touche LLP, its independent auditors, and Ernst & Young LLP, its former independent auditors, to complete the restatement and become current with its public filings as soon as possible.
