OTTAWA, CANADA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- DragonWave Inc.
(TSX:DWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave
radio systems for mobile and access networks, today reported
financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended
November 30, 2012. All figures are reported in U.S. dollars and were
prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting
principles (GAAP). 
Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $38.5 million,
compared with $11.8 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012
and $44.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013.
DragonWave had one customer, Nokia Siemens Networks, who generated
more than 10% of revenue in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.
Revenue through the new Nokia Siemens Networks channel totaled $25.6
million in the quarter. 
Gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 19%,
compared with 41% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 and 15% in
the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. The gross margin in the
second quarter of fiscal year 2013 reflects the inclusion of an
inventory impairment provision of $2.6 million. Without the inventory
provision, the gross margin in the second quarter was 21%. 
Comprehensive loss applicable to shareholders in the third quarter of
fiscal year 2013 was ($13.9) million or ($0.36) per basic and diluted
share, compared to a loss of ($8.0) million or ($0.23) per basic and

"While visibility into our revenue pipeline has been challenging, we
have continued to work hard on completing the integration activities
of our strategic partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks to position
ourselves for growth," said DragonWave President and CEO Peter Allen.
"These efforts combined with our continued focus on cost reduction
are targeted at achieving a profitable business model."  
Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $36.8 million,
compared to $44.0 million at the end of the second quarter of fiscal
year 2013.

million, compared with $36.5 million for the first nine months of
2012. Net loss applicable to shareholders for the first nine months
of fiscal 2013 was ($27.6) million or ($0.74) per basic and diluted
share, compared with ($20.1) million or ($0.57) per basic and diluted
share for the first nine months of fiscal 2012.

--  DragonWave's growth is dependent on the development and growth of the
    market for high-capacity wireless communications services. 
    
--  DragonWave relies on a small number of customers for a large percentage
    of its revenue and DragonWave's future growth depends on the success of
    its customer diversification efforts. 
    
--  Network deployment plans by DragonWave's existing and potential
    customers are capital intensive and the timing of such deployments is
    affected by such customers' access to capital. 
    
--  DragonWave faces intense competition from several competitors and if it
    does not compete effectively with these competitors, its revenues may
    not grow and could decline. DragonWave also faces co
mpetition from
    indirect competitors. 
    
--  DragonWave relies on its suppliers to supply components for its products
    and the Company is exposed to the risk that these suppliers will not be
    able to supply components on a timely basis, or at all. 
    
--  DragonWave's success depends on its ability to develop new products and
    enhance existing products. 
    
--  DragonWave's quarterly revenue and operating results can be difficult to
    predict and can fluctuate substantially. 
    
--  If DragonWave is required to change its pricing models to compete
    successfully, its margins and operating results may be adversely
    affected. 
    
--  DragonWave has a lengthy and variable sales cycle. 

 
DragonWave assumes no obligation to update or revise any
forward-looking statements or forward-looking information, whether
because of new information, future events or otherwise, except as
expressly required by law.
