Outlook for Fiscal Q3 2013

The company provides technical computing solutions to large government, public, and commercial customers. Any given customer deal can include a varying mix of compute and storage hardware, software, and services, and generally will carry terms that result in most of the product revenue associated with the deal being recognized upon final shipment or acceptance of the system. The timing of final delivery or acceptance of large deals is difficult to predict and can cause significant swings in quarterly revenue. Management provides guidance on quarterly revenue and other items based on its current expectations of the timing of revenue and associated costs; however there can be no assurance that revenues and associated costs will be recognized according to expected schedules and management assumes no obligation to update its guidance if the timing of revenues or other circumstances in the business differ from current expectations.
