Glu Mobile Announces Preliminary Second Quarter 2012 Results; Moves Earnings Conference Call Date Forward To August 2nd

Glu may consider whether other significant non-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded in calculating the non-GAAP financial measures it uses.

Glu believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Glu's performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of Glu's core business, operating results or future outlook. Glu's management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing Glu's operating results, as well as when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons of Glu's performance to prior periods.

Cautions Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements, including those regarding our preliminary financial results for the second quarter of 2012, our updated guidance for the second half of 2012 and the full fiscal year; and the statements that we expect our preliminary Q2 results to exceed the upper end of guidance for our tenth straight quarter; we will be launching the majority of our second half of 2012 titles between September and December in order to capitalize on advertising seasonality and new consumer hardware introductions; we expect to achieve positive Adjusted EBIDTA in the second half of 2012, shaped as an Adjusted EBITDA loss in Q3 and solid Q4 Adjusted EBITDA profitability, and that we are pleased with the prognosis for freemium mobile gaming for the second half of 2012 and our strong product release slate. These forward-looking statements are subject to material risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Investors should consider important risk factors, which include: Glu’s final review of its preliminary second quarter results and quarter-end accounting procedures; the risk that consumer demand for smartphones, tablets and next-generation platforms does not grow as significantly as we anticipate or that we will be unable to capitalize on any such growth; the risk that we do not realize a sufficient return on our investment with respect to our efforts to develop freemium games for smartphones, tablets and next-generation platforms, the risk that we will not be able to maintain our good relationships with Apple and Google, the risk that our development expenses for games for smartphones are greater than we anticipate; the risk that our recently and newly launched games are less popular than anticipated; the risk that our newly released games will be of a quality less than desired by reviewers and consumers; the risk that the mobile games market, particularly with respect to freemium gaming, is smaller than anticipated; and other risks detailed under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 10, 2012 and our other SEC filings. You can locate these reports through our website at http://www.glu.com/investors. We are under no obligation, and expressly disclaim any obligation, to update or alter our forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
