MILPITAS, Calif.

Montage Technology Group Limited (“Montage”) today filed a supplemental investor presentation with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with its superior offer to acquire Pericom Semiconductor Corporation (“Pericom”) (NASDAQ: PSEM). The presentation, which highlights Montage’s confidence and ability to close the Pericom-Montage transaction, as well as certain factually inaccurate and misleading statements made by Pericom about Montage’s offer, will also be available on Montage’s website at www.montage-tech.com.

Montage believes that its $18.50 per share cash offer is clearly superior to the $17.00 per share Diodes Incorporated (“Diodes”) proposal and presents a compelling opportunity to create substantial value for all Pericom shareholders. Montage’s $18.50 offer is 9% higher than the Diodes proposal and 52% higher than Pericom’s unaffected closing price on September 2, 2015.

Pericom’s special meeting is fast approaching. Montage urges Pericom shareholders to Vote “AGAINST” the Diodes Acquisition Proposal on the GOLD proxy card TODAY.
