Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements
The statements made in this press release regarding projected financial results, financial objectives, and strategic plans, including SGI's Q3 FY13 financial guidance and certain statements made in the earnings conference call, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Actual results could differ materially from those described by these statements due to a number of uncertainties, including, but not limited to:
- Fluctuations in the buying patterns and sizes of customer orders from one quarter to the next;
- Increased competition causing SGI to sell products or services at lower margins than expected;
- Lengthy acceptance cycles of SGI's products by certain customers, development or product delivery delays, and delays in obtaining necessary components from suppliers, contractual provisions or other reasons;
- The addition of new customers or loss of existing customers;
- Customer concentration risks;
- Substantial sales to U.S. government entities, which are subject to the government's budgetary constraints;
- Write-off of excess and obsolete inventory;
- Unexpected changes in the price for, and the availability of, components from SGI's suppliers;
- SGI's ability to enhance its products with new and better designs and functionality;
- Actions taken by competitors, such as new product announcements or introductions or changes in pricing; and
- Market acceptance of newer products.
In addition, SGI's actual revenue, gross margin, earnings per share and other projections on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the fiscal quarter ending March 29, 2013 could differ materially from the targets stated under "Outlook for Fiscal Q3 2013" above for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to (i) application of the actual consolidated GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for such periods, or judgment by management to increase or decrease an income tax asset or liability, (ii) a determination by SGI that any portion of its goodwill or intangible assets have become impaired, (iii) changes in the anticipated amount of employee stock-based compensation expense recognized on SGI's financial statements, (iv) increases or decreases to estimated capital expenditures, (v) changes driven by new accounting rules, regulations, interpretations or guidance, (vi) changes in the anticipated amounts and timing of restructuring charges to be incurred and cost savings expected to be realized from our restructuring actions in Europe, (vii) charges or gains resulting from litigation or dispute settlement, and (viii) other risks as detailed in SGI's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including those described in SGI's Annual Report on Form 10-K under the caption "Risk Factors" filed with the SEC on September 10, 2012, which are available at the SEC's web site at
. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this announcement. SGI undertakes no obligation to update the information in this earnings release or the related earnings conference call, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless otherwise required by law.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the related earnings conference call include financial measures that are not determined in accordance with U.S. general accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), including non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and management exercises judgment in determining which items should be excluded in the calculation of non-GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. While we believe that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe that non-GAAP measures are valuable in evaluating the company's operating performance and analyzing our business operations. Management excludes the following items from one or more of non-GAAP measures: (1) share-based compensation; (2) amortization of intangible assets; (3) restructuring and severance charges; and (4) other non-recurring costs, including settlements and other items. These measures are adjusted as described in the reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP numbers at the end of this release, but these adjustments should not be construed as an inference that all of these adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
