Power Integrations Receives Nasdaq Notice Regarding Delayed Filing of Form 10-K

March 17, 2006

SAN JOSE, Calif.--March 17, 2006--Power Integrations (Nasdaq:POWI) today announced that it has received a Nasdaq Staff Determination stating that the company is not in compliance with Marketplace Rule 4310©(14) because it has not timely filed its report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2005 and, therefore, that its securities are subject to delisting from the Nasdaq National Market. The company disclosed on March 13, 2006 that its filing of Form 10-K for the year 2005 would be delayed to allow for the completion of an ongoing internal investigation of company practices related to stock-option grants to officers and directors, and related matters.

The company intends to request a hearing before a Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to review the Staff Determination. Delisting will be stayed pending a decision by the hearing panel. There can be no assurance that the Panel will grant the company's request for continued listing.
