"PMC-Sierra's revenue increased in the second quarter as activity in the service provider sector improved modestly in both Asia and North America," said Bob Bailey, chairman and chief executive officer of PMC-Sierra. "Our continued commitment to investing in next-generation metro transport, MIPS-based(TM) microprocessors, and storage systems related products has resulted in 13 new products being introduced this past quarter."

Termination of Office Lease Obligation
On July 8, 2003, PMC-Sierra announced that it completed a transaction that resulted in the elimination of its lease obligation related to the Mission Towers Two building located at Freedom Circle in Santa Clara, CA. As part of the transaction, PMC-Sierra purchased and resold the facility at a net cost of approximately $102 million to the Company. The transaction eliminates the Company's remaining rental commitments for the building of about $215 million that would have been paid through December 2011. In the fourth quarter of 2001, the Company recorded a restructuring charge related to excess facilities. The final settlement costs of terminating Mission Towers Two and other facility leases are expected to be slightly less than the initial estimates accrued in 2001.
