This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements about the Company's business strategy, financial outlook and expectations for the fourth quarter of 2012 and statements related to expense savings or reductions, operational and administrative efficiencies, revenue growth, margin improvement, financial performance and other attributes of the Company. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company's expectations and assumptions, as of the date such statements are made, regarding the Company's future operating performance and financial condition, the economy and other future events or circumstances. Actual results could differ materially from the outlook guidance and expectations in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of risk factors, including, among others, (a) the Company's dependence on certain customers and high degree of customer concentration, (b) the Company's use of one contract manufacturer for a significant portion of the production of its products, (c) the anticipated amount and timing of revenues from design wins due to the Company's customers' product development time, cancellations or delays, (d) fluctuations in currency exchange rates, (e) the ability of the Company to successfully integrate the business and operations of Continuous Computing and higher than expected costs of integration, (f) the Company's ability to successfully manage the transition from 10G to 40G ATCA product technologies, (g) performance and customer acceptance of the Trillium line of products, (h) the combined Company's financial results and performance and (i) other factors listed in the Company's reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including those listed under “Risk Factors” in Radisys' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and in Radisys' subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, copies of which may be obtained by contacting the Company at 503-615-1100, from the Company's investor relations web site at

. Although forward-looking statements help provide additional information about Radisys, investors should keep in mind that forward-looking statements are inherently less reliable than historical information. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize (or the other consequences of such a development worsen), or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual outcomes may vary materially from those forecasted or expected. The Company believes its expectations and assumptions are reasonable, but there can be no assurance that the expectations reflected herein will be achieved. All information in this press release is as of October 30, 2012. The Company undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statement to conform the statement to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain expenses, gains and losses, such as the effects of (a) purchase accounting adjustments, (b) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (c) stock-based compensation expense, (d) restructuring and acquisition-related charges (reversals), net, (e) impairment of goodwill, (f) gain on the liquidation of a foreign subsidiary, and (g) non-cash income tax expense. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring the Company's performance, and the Company believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes. These non-GAAP measures are considered to be reflective of the Company's core operating results as they more closely reflect the essential revenue-generating activities of the Company and direct operating expenses (resulting in cash expenditures) needed to perform these revenue-generating activities. The Company also believes, based on feedback provided to the Company during its earnings calls' Q&A sessions and discussions with the investment community, that the non-GAAP financial measures it provides are necessary to allow the investment community to construct their valuation models to better align its results and projections with its competitors and market sector, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to certain expenses, gains and losses.
