Mr. Min Xu, UTStarcom’s Chief Financial Officer, commented, “Although financial results were not as robust as in the first half of the year, we remain on track to realize the financial benefits of the new strategic plan we initiated last year.

Gross margin improved from last year, due to our focus on our higher-value, higher margin products. We continue to demonstrate outstanding expense discipline, bringing down our operating expenses by almost $1 million from the second quarter level. This effort resulted in meaningful operating cash flow improvement, enabling us to repurchase shares while maintaining our balance sheet strength.”

Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, UTStarcom uses certain non-GAAP measures which are adjusted to present those metrics as if stock compensation expenses, one-time India DoT related and China IPTV- related deferred revenue amortization had been excluded in prior years comparatives. We believe this enables year over year comparisons to our recent financial results. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of UTStarcom’s underlying results and trends. In addition, these adjusted non-GAAP results are among the information management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
