Openwave Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

Openwave Systems Inc. (Nasdaq:OPWV), a global software innovator delivering all-Internet Protocol (all-IP) mediation and messaging solutions, today announced that revenues for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011 were $35.9 million, compared with $52.4 million in the prior quarter ended September 30, 2011 and $39.9 million in the December quarter in the preceding fiscal year. Bookings for the quarter were $20.4 million. The company ended the quarter with $69.7 million in cash and investments.

“As previewed a quarter ago, we undertook a strategic review of our products business and subsequently executed a set of activities, including establishing three business units and improving bookings execution. As a result, we believe our mediation and messaging business units are now optimized for a potential sale,” said Mike Mulica, CEO, Openwave. “We continue to believe in the large opportunity represented by our Intellectual Property initiative, and we are well underway in implementing a strategic plan to unlock the significant inherent value in our patent portfolio.”

On a GAAP basis, net loss for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $10.4 million or $0.12 per share, compared with a net income of $2.6 million or $0.03 per share, in the prior quarter and net loss of $4.5 million or $0.05 per share, in the December quarter in the preceding year.

On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $5.0 million or $0.06 per share, compared with a net income $9.3 million or $0.11 per share, in the prior quarter and a net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.03 per share, in the December quarter in the preceding year. Non-GAAP net income (loss) excludes restructuring, impairments and certain losses on investments, costs associated with strategic alternatives, amortization of intangibles and stock-based compensation, amounts associated with certain unusual events, discontinued operations, impairment of deferred tax assets and the tax impact of these items.

A reconciliation between net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share on a GAAP basis and a non-GAAP basis is provided below in a table immediately following the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

Non-GAAP Measure

The company’s stated results include the non-GAAP measures: non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that generally are non-recurring events or are non-cash items that many other companies exclude, in order to compare Openwave with other companies, such as stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles. These non-GAAP measures also exclude items which management does not consider in evaluating Openwave’s on-going business, such as restructuring costs, impairments on investments, and discontinued operations. Openwave considers non-GAAP net income (loss) to be an important measure because it provides a useful measure of the operational performance of Openwave and is used by Openwave's management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the financial performance of a company. These non-GAAP measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding Openwave's operating results. These non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements

The statements in this press release in Mr. Mulica’s quote with respect to future events or expectations are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1943 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933. These forward-looking statements are subject to many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Notwithstanding changes that may occur with respect to matters relating to any forward looking statements, Openwave assumes no obligation to update the forward-looking statements included in this press release.

In particular, the following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected: (a) the current economic climate may impede the growth of wireless data demand, which could impede customer trials and the ability of Openwave to monetize its intellectual property portfolio; (b) Openwave may not be able to make changes in business strategy, development plans and product offerings to respond to any changes in wireless demand needs of its customers; and (c) Openwave’s cost cutting measures may not result in the cost reductions Openwave expects, or may have an unexpected negative effect on Openwave’s ability to service its customers, either of which would have an adverse effect on Openwave’s operating results.

For a detailed discussion of these and other factors that may cause these forward looking statements not to come true, please refer to the risk factors discussed in Openwave’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011.
