Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements made herein contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. Words such as “expects”, “believes”, “estimates”, “plans” or similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are based on our current views and assumptions and involve risks and uncertainties that include, but are not limited to: our results for 2011 may be negatively impacted by the current global economic conditions and uncertainties; a significant portion of our revenue is derived from sales to a few customers and the loss of one or more of our significant customers could have an adverse impact on our operating results and financial condition; a significant portion of our revenue is derived from products manufactured by one supplier and a significant change in the supplier’s manufacturing capability or in our relationship with this supplier could have an adverse impact on our operating results and financial condition; our operating results and financial condition could be negatively affected if after receiving design wins from OEMs, which in turn outsource the manufacture of their products to electronics manufacturing services ("EMS") companies, we fail to negotiate terms and successfully obtain orders from the EMS companies directly; in order to eliminate the effects of currency fluctuations, we currently and historically have purchased products from our foreign suppliers in U.S. dollars. As exchange rates fluctuate, our cost for these products may become more expensive, thus we are less competitive, than our competitors that have taken measures to protect against exchange rate fluctuations; our ability to develop, market and manufacture new innovative products competitively; the fluctuations in product demand of the telecommunications industry; and our ability, including that of our suppliers to produce and deliver materials and products competitively.
