"Our second quarter's strong sequential improvements were driven in large part, by our investments in the company's operational and legal infrastructure. We have implemented a revamped logistics system, which has led to lower lead times and days sales outstanding. Meanwhile, our airMAX anti-counterfeit strategy has made significant progress in decreasing counterfeit shipments and deterring counterfeit activities. Our anti-counterfeit manufacturing technology is now fully implemented across all platforms, including our newer airMAX technology," said Robert J. Pera, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ubiquiti Networks. "We are very excited about Ubiquiti's continued growth prospects in the operator market as well as new growth opportunities in the enterprise, security, and machine to machine communications markets." Recent Highlights * In September, the Company released EdgeMAX, a price/performance disruptive software and systems routing platform, offering what the company believes to be the world's first sub-$100 router technology with greater than 1 million packet-per-second processing performance packed with powerful routing features. * In October, AirFiber, the Company's microwave backhaul solution, won the 2012 Wireless Internet Provider Association product of the year award. * AirVision, the Company's IP video surveillance platform has been re-architected and vastly upgraded with the release of the Company's AirVision 2.0 NVR and management software. Mr. Pera added, "Just as we anticipate strong demand ahead with AirFiber and EdgeMAX rounding out our airMAX technology offering, UniFi (wireless LAN) has the potential to become our next major growth opportunity as we work to expand its functionality during this calendar year. AirVision version 2.0 also has been completely architected and will also launch soon. Finally, our enterprise machine to machine communications platform (mFi) will have several new updates and products this year." Business Outlook Ubiquiti currently believes the demand environment in its end markets supports the following forecast for the Company's fiscal third quarter ending March 31, 2013: * Revenues of between $76 million and $84 million * GAAP Diluted EPS of between $0.19 and $0.23 * Non-GAAP Diluted EPS of between $0.20 and $0.24 Conference Call Ubiquiti Networks will discuss the Company's financial results by conference call at 2:00 p.m. PST today.

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding non-cash expenses, significant recurring items that we believe are important to understanding our financial, and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company's operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company. Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures used by Ubiquiti Networks We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of recurring stock-based compensation expense and the tax effect of these adjustments. In addition, our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is calculated using weighted-average shares outstanding as if Series A preferred stock outstanding had been converted to common stock throughout the periods presented. Examples of items excluded from net income are: * Recurring charges and gains, including: * Stock-based compensation expense is recognized in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification, Topic 718, Stock Compensation. * Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. After adjusting to exclude the items described above, we apply the principles of ASC 740, Income Taxes, to estimate the non-GAAP income tax provision. Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Information to Investors These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to non-GAAP Net Income" and "Reconciliation of Weighted-Average Shares Used in Computing Net Income (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock-Diluted to Weighted-Average Shares Used In Computing Non-GAAP Diluted EPS" included in this press release.
