Fourth Quarter 2011 Financial Results
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $147.2 million, a decrease of 12% compared to $167.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, and comparable to $146.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. The year-over-year revenue decrease was primarily due to the absence of revenue from Barnes & Noble and Clearwire, which combined had accounted for approximately $14.8 million in revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010. Machine-to-Machine (“M2M”) revenue was $71.3 million, down 15% compared to the historically high levels of fourth quarter 2010, which included $8.4 million of revenue from Barnes & Noble. Mobile Computing revenue was $75.9 million, down 9% compared to $83.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, which included $6.4 million of revenue from Clearwire.
