FROM THE PRESIDENT: 2014 IN REVIEW
This has been an incredibly positive year for Alliance Memory. Since you're reading this, you're probably already aware of our history-making agreement with Micron to provide a continuing source of key synchronous DRAMs, an agreement that's historic because it was concluded proactively, before the devices were actually obsolesced. That was big news, but from our point of view the bigger story is how our product portfolio has evolved to include more and more DRAM products — including DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, and low-power mobile DRAM ICs. The fact is that our DRAM business has grown by an order of magnitude just in the past year. Not bad for a company that was conceived not so long ago as a supplier exclusively of legacy SRAM memory ICs. But change is the nature of our business, and today's bleeding edge memory technology becomes tomorrow's legacy technology at an ever faster pace. What doesn't change is the need for a reliable source of the memory chips you need as a manufacturer, and this is one area where Alliance Memory has worked particularly hard to differentiate ourselves from the competition. Fortunately we've had some wonderful partners in this effort. We are very grateful in particular to Digi-Key and Mouser for all they've done to get the word out about our DRAM product line and to get these new parts qualified by an ever larger number of customers.
Thanks to you, we've had a great 2014 and we're looking forward to an even better 2015. All of us at Alliance Memory send you our best wishes for a joyous holiday season and a happy and successful new year.
President and CEO
