OPERATING RESULTS

Sales in the third quarter of 2012 were $380.3 million, an increase of 198.0%, compared to the sales of $127.6 million for the same quarter of 2011. Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 was $34.8 million, an increase of 511.1%, compared to $5.7 million in the third quarter of last year. Gross profit margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 9.2%, up 4.7% from 4.5% in the third quarter of last year. Operating income for the third quarter of 2012 was $26.8 million, compared to the operating loss of $0.9 million in the third quarter of last year. Net income in the third quarter of 2012 was $24.6 million, or $0.54 per share (diluted), an increase of 2,142.2%, as compared to the net income of $1.1 million, or $0.02 per share (diluted) in the third quarter of last year.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net sales were $679.5 million, an increase of 71.6%, compared to $396.0 million in the same period of 2011. Gross profit for the nine months September 30, 2012 was $56.8 million, an increase of 215.4%, compared to $18.0 million in the same period of last year.

The improvement of the Company's results in the third quarter of 2012 was mainly due to six factors. First, sales increased significantly by 198.0% compared to the same period last year, as a result of (i) the Company's Wuxi manufacturing facility continued to ramp up of its production of high-resolution liquid crystal display modules ("LCMs") for tablets and (ii) the Company's Shenzhen manufacturing facility began mass production of high-resolution LCMs for smartphones in September 2012. Second, the management of the Company adopted certain employee stock option arrangement and forfeited a cash incentive bonus of $5.1 million. Third, the Company had $2.0 million in other and interest income, including $0.6 million of incentive allowance from the PRC government for the manufacturing of mechanical and electrical products, $0.9 million of interest income and $0.5 million of exchange gain. Fourth, the Company has improved its gross and net profit by discontinuing certain sales orders that have had poor performance. Fifth, the Company enjoyed benefit from the certain exemption treatment and tax reduction for its Wuxi operation and a tax benefit of $1.1 million as a result of tax losses carried forward from last year. Lastly, the Company has also been successful in its cost control management which effectively maintaining expenses at a similar level as before even though it had a significant increase in sales.

With respect to the discontinued low profit margin businesses, for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, the net sales were $1.8 million and $19.8 million, gross profit were $0.6 million and $2.4 million, and operating income were $0.9 million and $1.0 million, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, the net sales were $24.1 million and $61.0 million, gross (loss) profit were ($0.6 million) and $7.8 million, and operating (loss) income were ($2.7 million) and $3.4 million,  respectively. Please see page 7 of the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for further details. This information has also been published on the Company's website at http://www.namtai.com/quarterly/quarterly.htm in the quarterly earnings report of Q3 2012 on page 7, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

EXPANSION PROJECT

a) Expansion Project in Wuxi City, PRC
The Company had purchased a parcel of land of approximately 470,000 square feet from the Wuxi government for the expansion of its Wuxi manufacturing facility. On July 12, 2012, the Company conducted the stone-laying ceremony for the construction of the facility's new additions, which is expected to be completed by August 2014. The expanded facility will include office buildings, a research and development center, an environmental and safety control center, an SMT plant and warehouse, labor union buildings and employee activity centers.

b) Expansion Project in Shenzhen City, PRC
The Company is still actively and closely working with the Shenzhen government to expedite the release of a parcel of land in Shenzhen, Guangming Hi-Tech Industrial Park of approximately 1,270,000 square feet. The Shenzhen government recently announced a city rezoning project for an area that encompasses the Company's existing Shenzhen facility. As a result, the location of the Company's existing Shenzhen facility will be redeveloped as an high-end commercial district area and will no longer be suitable for any manufacturing factory thereafter. The Company has been requested to move out from the existing facility in due course and therefore has placed the need for relocation in high priority. The Company plans to continue to focus its efforts to facilitate the Shenzhen government to release the land in Guangming for its relocation, expansion and development needs at the earliest practical time. The Company currently aims to move into the new location in Guangming within three years. Subsequent to this relocation, the Company will continue to hold the existing location of its Shenzhen manufacturing facility, as a significant valuable asset for the time being.

COMPANY OUTLOOK

The Company's revenue increased by 198.0% in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2011, excluding the contribution from the discontinued businesses. This significant revenue increase was principally due to the ramping up of the production of high-resolution LCM for tablets at the Company's Wuxi facility and the commencement of the production of high-resolution LCM for smartphones at the Company's Shenzhen facility beginning in September 2012. After the final evaluation on the viability of its flexible printed circuit ("FPC") business based on its performance in the third quarter of 2012, the Company has decided to discontinue its FPC business at the end of March 2013, which business has been generating losses since its initial production.

The Company is currently under discussion with its existing customers, as essential production partners, for the manufacturing of another LCM product, which the Company believes will continue to drive the expansion of its existing production capacity and production facilities.

The Company's management anticipates its customer orders would grow steadily and the existing production capacity would be expected to reach full capacity before the end of 2013, if the increases in demand for the existing production of LCMs for smartphones and tablets as well as the other new LCM product business continue to hold. Nevertheless, the Company may continue to face certain risks including but not limited to, the appreciation of renminbi, inflation in China, labor shortage, materials shortage, customers and suppliers' inability to meet their contractual obligations, financial difficulties resulting in customers and suppliers' illiquidity and global political events and actions, including war and terrorism. These risks could affect the Company's sales, profit margin and investment lost.

There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activities, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, a deterioration of the markets for the Company's customers' products and the global economy as a whole, which could negatively impact the Company's revenue and the ability of the Company's customers to confirm prior orders or pay for the Company's products; the financial resources and credit rating of Company's customers under the current global recession; the effects that current credit and market conditions could have on the liquidity and financial condition of our customers and suppliers, including any impact on their ability to meet their contractual obligations; the sufficiency of the Company's cash position and other sources of liquidity to operate its business; the negative effects of increased competition pressure on the Company's revenues and margins; component quality or shortage, whether or not cause by customers change in specifications, delay in the Company's ability to take possession of land for development of additional production facilities, continued inflation and appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar; rising labor costs in China and changes in the labor supply and labor relations our ability to win additional government business.
