The Company has not completed its first quarter 2013 financial review process nor have its auditors completed their review process. Accordingly, the results and conclusions of these reviews could impact the Company's first quarter 2013 GAAP and non-GAAP financial results.
Second Quarter 2013
The Company stated that it expects second quarter 2013 non-GAAP net revenue to be between $47 million and $53 million. The midpoint of this range represents a 12% increase in non-GAAP net revenue, compared to the midpoint of the revised first quarter 2013 non-GAAP net revenue range. The Company also expects non-GAAP EPS for the second quarter of 2013 to be between $(0.01) to $0.02 on a fully diluted basis.
Year Ending December 31, 2013

At the mid-points of these forecasted financial results ranges, non-GAAP net revenue would grow 10%; non-GAAP gross margin would improve 2.6 percentage points; non-GAAP operating expenses would increase $4.2 million, and non-GAAP EPS would increase by $0.12 compared to financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012.
