Fiscal 2014 Third Quarter Results

Total net revenue for the fiscal 2014 third quarter was $54.8 million compared to $55.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and $51.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013, representing a decrease of 1% sequentially and an increase of 6% year-over-year.

The net loss on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis for the fiscal 2014 third quarter was a loss of $7.3 million, or $0.10 per share. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $32.4 million, or $0.45 per share, in the prior quarter and a GAAP net loss of $71.6 million, or $1.08 per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal 2014 third quarter was $1.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $2.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the prior quarter and a non-GAAP net loss of $6.9 million, or $0.10 per share, in the same quarter last year.

The non-GAAP results and other financial measures reported by the Company exclude certain items that are required by GAAP, such as restructuring charges, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation charges, other-than-temporary impairment on investments, acquisition related recoveries, sale of equipment and other assets, gain on sale of TPack, Veloce acquisition consideration, warrant expense, payroll taxes on certain stock option exercises and non-cash tax adjustments. Income taxes are adjusted to an estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate. These non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP measures and may not be consistent with the presentation used by other companies.  A reconciliation of the GAAP-basis net loss to non-GAAP basis net income or loss and earnings per share is provided at the end of this press release.
