Management Comments:

Commenting on the results, Ofer Elyakim, CEO of DSP Group, stated, "We are pleased with our financial results for the first quarter, which exceeded our guidance in almost every financial metric. Moreover, we believe that the excess inventory depletion cycle which negatively impacted revenues in the first quarter, as originally expected, is now behind us and we are well positioned for sequential revenue growth in the second quarter."

Mr. Elyakim added, "During the quarter we successfully met key milestones in our business plan, which will enable us to more meaningfully expand our reach beyond cordless telephony with new product offerings. One of our most important achievements was a major design win with a tier 1 OEM for VoIP products that will significantly expand our market footprint and revenue growth in the Office segment. We are well positioned to meet all the milestones we have set forth in our plan for this year and consequently achieve an inflection point in our business in 2015."
