BEIJING, March 18, 2013

BEIJING, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UTStarcom Holdings Corp. ("UTStarcom"
or "the Company") (NASDAQ: UTSI), a leading provider of media operational
support services and broadband equipment products and services, today reported
financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31,
2012.

As previously announced, the Company closed the divestiture of its IPTV
business in August 2012 but has not yet met the requirements for reporting
those results as discontinued operations because of the Company's continuing
involvement. Therefore, to enable a comparison of results excluding the IPTV
business and the amortization of PHS deferred revenue the Company is including
non-GAAP comparisons throughout this press release.

UTStarcom President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. William Wong, stated,
"2012 was a year of significant transition for UTStarcom and a period during
which we accomplished several important milestones. Of primary importance, we
executed a plan to exit the IPTV equipment business and launched a new
strategy designed to transform the Company into a higher growth, more
profitable business focused on providing next generation media operational
support services and higher value-added broadband equipment offerings. In
support of this new strategy, we began making strategic investments in new
partners, such as aioTV, and bolstered our relationship with iTV. Both of
these actions will allow us to build and deploy a TV over IP services
platform. In addition, we used our robust cash position to help build
long-term value for our shareholders by continuing to repurchase stock and
effecting a tender offer that was completed in early 2013. In all, we have
returned a total of $45 million to shareholders since 2011."

"While there is a great deal more to do, we are very pleased with the positive
initial progress that is underway. We believe our clearly defined new strategy
positions us well in the evolving media environment to capture growth
opportunities in 2013 and beyond. We expect this will result in stronger and
more predictable financial results over time as well as enable us to deliver
enhanced value for UTStarcom's long-term and very loyal shareholders."

Full Year 2012 Milestones and Operating Highlights

  oSuccessfully closed the divestiture of the underperforming IPTV business.
  oOutlined a new strategy to transform the Company into a higher growth,
    more profitable business.
  oInvested in new partnerships that will progress the strategy to take
    significant stakes in companies that have market leading technology and
    will bolster the roll-out of subscription-based, value-added media
    services across Asia and other markets.
  oStrengthened the executive management team and added a new independent
    director to the Board.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Performance Highlights

  oFourth quarter and full year 2012 non-GAAP revenues decreased 13.0% and
    12.2% year-over-year to $41.0 million and $157.3 million.
  oFourth quarter and full year 2012 non-GAAP gross margin was 32.4% and
    34.3%, respectively, compared to 34.3% and 40.6%, respectively, for the
    corresponding period of 2011.
  oFourth quarter non-GAAP net loss attributable to UTStarcom shareholders
    was $6.7 million, or non-GAAP basic loss per share of $0.05, compared to
    2011 fourth quarter non-GAAP net loss of $2.7 million, or non-GAAP basic
    loss per share of $0.02.
  oFull year 2012 non-GAAP net loss attributable to UTStarcom shareholders
    was $16.4 million, or non-GAAP basic loss per share of $0.11, compared to
    full year 2011 non-GAAP net income of $2.5 million, or non-GAAP basic
    income per share of $0.02.
  oCash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $179.9 million as
    of December 31, 2012.
  oAllocated $45 million to execute shareholder value building initiatives
    including a tender offer and share repurchase.

UTStarcom Chief Financial Officer Mr. Robert Pu stated, "The fourth quarter
trends followed closely what we experienced in the third quarter yet a shift
in sales mix to less profitable products offset an increase in equipment sales
relative to third quarter levels and impacted results. Despite this shift, we
were able to achieve our full year 2012 gross margin goal of approximately
35%. In addition, we made good progress on stabilizing our operating expenses
and we will maintain strict cost control going forward. Furthermore, our
balance sheet remains strong with a December 31, 2012 cash position of
approximately $180 million. This has allowed us to invest in new partnerships,
consistently buy back shares, and complete a tender offer. We will continue
to efficiently manage working capital so we can fund our planned strategic
initiatives and build out higher margin products and services to strengthen
the business and financial performance."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results

As part of a plan to transition the Company into higher growth, more
profitable areas, UTStarcom successfully closed the divestiture of its IPTV
business on August 31, 2012. As of December 31, 2012, the Company did not
meet the requirements to report results from the IPTV division separately as
discontinued operations. To enable a comparison of the financial results in
year-to-date and future periods, the Company has prepared non-GAAP results.
Included below are quarterly and year-to-date non-GAAP comparisons that
exclude financial results from the IPTV business and amortization of PHS
deferred revenue. The Company's GAAP financial results and reconciliation with
the non-GAAP numbers discussed in this release are at the end of this press
release.

Total Revenues

UTStarcom's total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $43.3 million,
a decrease of 48.2% year-over-year from $83.5 million for the corresponding
period of 2011. Total revenues for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012
were $186.7 million, a decrease of 41.8% year-over-year from $320.6 million
for the corresponding period of 2011.

UTStarcom's non-GAAP total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $41.0
million, a decrease of 13.0% year-over-year from $47.1 million for the
corresponding period of 2011. Non-GAAP total revenues for the twelve months
ended December 31, 2012 were $157.3 million, a decrease of 12.2%
year-over-year from $179.1 million for the corresponding period of 2011.

Three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

  oNon-GAAP net sales from equipment for the fourth quarter of 2012 were
    $34.7 million, a decrease of 14.7% year-over-year. The decrease was mainly
    caused by decreased sales of PTN products in Japan and GEPON products in
    China which was partially offset by increased sales of MSAN products in
    Japan.
  oNon-GAAP net sales from equipment-based services for the fourth quarter of
    2012 were $6.3 million, a decrease of 2.0% year-over-year.

Twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

  oNon-GAAP net sales from equipment for the twelve months ended December 31,
    2012 were $133.8 million, a decrease of 9.8% year-over-year. The decrease
    was mainly driven by decreased sales of PTN products in Japan and GEPON
    products in China which was partially offset by increased sales of MSAN
    products in Japan. The $7.4 million of equipment revenue recognized from
    the Jersey Telecom Limited contract in the second quarter of 2011 also
    contributed to the year-over-year decrease.
  oNon-GAAP net sales from equipment-based services for the twelve months
    ended December 31, 2012 were $23.2 million, a decrease of 24.5%
    year-over-year. The decrease was mainly due to fewer NGN product-related
    services provided in 2012. The $3.9 million of equipment-based service
    revenue recognized from the Jersey Telecom Limited contract in the second
    quarter of 2011 also contributed to the year-over-year decrease.

Gross Profit

UTStarcom's gross profit was $13.7 million, or 31.7% of net sales, for the
fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $28.6 million, or 34.2% of net sales, for
the corresponding period of 2011. Gross profit was $68.2 million, or 36.5% of
net sales, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, compared to $114.3
million, or 35.7% of net sales, for the corresponding period of 2011.

UTStarcom's non-GAAP gross profit was $13.3 million, or 32.4% of net sales,
for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $16.2 million, or 34.3% of net
sales, for the corresponding period of 2011. Non-GAAP gross profit was $54.0
million, or 34.3% of net sales, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012,
compared to $72.8 million, or 40.6% of net sales, for the corresponding period
of 2011.

Three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

  oNon-GAAP gross profit for equipment sales for the fourth quarter of 2012
    was $13.0 million, a decrease of 20.3% year-over-year. Non-GAAP gross
    margin for equipment sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 37.5%,
    compared to 40.1% for the corresponding period in 2011. The margin
    decrease was primarily due to increased sales of MSAN products, which have
    relatively lower gross margins compared to PTN products, in the fourth
    quarter of 2012.
  oNon-GAAP gross profit for equipment-based services for the fourth quarter
    of 2012 was $0.3 million, compared to gross loss of $54 thousand for the
    corresponding period of 2011. Gross margin for equipment-based services
    for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 4.7%, compared to negative 0.8% for the
    corresponding period of 2011. The margin increase was primarily due to
    higher margin of MSTP and NGN product-related services provided in the
    fourth quarter of 2012.

Twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

  oNon-GAAP gross profit for equipment sales for the twelve months ended
    December 31, 2012 was $51.4 million, a decrease of 21.2% year-over-year.
    Gross margin for equipment sales for the twelve months ended December 31,
    2012 was 38.4%, compared to 44.0% for the corresponding period of 2011.
    The margin decrease was primarily due to higher equipment gross margin
    generated from $7.4 million in equipment revenue recognized from the
    Jersey Telecom Limited contract in the second quarter of 2011 and from
    increased sales of relatively lower margin MSAN products compared to PTN
    products in 2012.
  oNon-GAAP gross profit for equipment-based services for the twelve months
    ended December 31, 2012 was $2.7 million, a decrease of 65.9%
    year-over-year. Gross margin for equipment-based services for the twelve
    months ended December 31, 2012 was 11.4%, compared to 25.3% for the
    corresponding period of 2011. The margin decrease was primarily due to
    fewer NGN product-related services provided in 2012, while fixed services
    costs remained relatively constant.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $16.7 million, a
decrease of 16.7% year-over-year, from $20.0 million for the corresponding
period in 2011. Operating expenses for the twelve months ended December 31,
2012 were $99.5 million, an increase of 6.9% year-over-year from $93.1 million
for the corresponding period of 2011.

Non-GAAP operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $16.9 million,
an increase of 17.1% year-over-year, from $14.4 million for the corresponding
period in 2011. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the twelve months ended
December 31, 2012 were $68.8 million, an increase of 10.1% year-over-year,
from $62.5 million for the corresponding period of 2011.

Three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

  oNon-GAAP SG&A expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $11.9 million,
    an increase of 19.3% year-over-year. The increase was primarily due to an
    increase in consulting fees and the accelerated amortization of Beijing
    office leasehold improvement due to early termination, which was partially
    offset by decrease in personnel costs as a result of restructuring
    efforts.
  oNon-GAAP R&D expenses in the fourth quarter of 2012 were $4.3 million, an
    increase of 0.2% year-over-year.
  oNon-GAAP impairment of goodwill and other long-lived assets in the fourth
    quarter of 2012 were $1 million due to investment impairment on GCT
    SemiConductor.
  oNon-GAAP net gain on divestitures in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.2
    million, compared to $0.4 million in 2011.

Twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

  oNon-GAAP SG&A expenses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were
    $46.9 million, a decrease of 5.5% year-over-year. The decrease was
    primarily due to a decrease in personnel costs and the fixed cost as a
    result of our restructuring efforts which were partially offset by the
    increased consulting fees and the accelerated amortization of Beijing
    office leasehold improvement due to early termination.
  oNon-GAAP R&D expenses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were
    $20.5 million, an increase of 49.1% year-over-year. The increase was
    primarily due to an increase in consulting fees for several strategic
    outsourced design projects.
  oNon-GAAP impairment of goodwill and other long-lived assets for the twelve
    months ended December 31, 2012 were $1.8 million due to investment
    impairment on GCT SemiConductor and Xalted Networks.
  oNon-GAAP amortization of intangible assets for the twelve months ended
    December 31, 2012 was approximately $0.5 million compared to $1.2 million
    for the corresponding period of 2011 as a result of the amortization of
    intangible assets acquired in the iTV Media investment, formerly Stage
    Smart. The Company deconsolidated iTV Media in the second quarter of 2012
    and the amortization of intangible assets was terminated as of the end of
    that period.
  oNon-GAAP restructuring costs for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012
    were approximately $0.4 million, a decrease of 85.0% year-over-year. The
    decrease was primarily the result of the restructuring plan of year 2009
    which was completed in 2012.
  oNon-GAAP net gain on divestitures for the twelve months ended December 31,
    2012 was $1.3 million, a decrease of 72.3% year-over-year. The gain
    related to the contingent gain realized in 2012 upon releasing of the
    remaining obligations in connection with the sale of China Packet Data
    Services Node ("PDSN") assets in the third quarter of 2010.
  oGAAP net loss on divestiture for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012
    was $16.2 million, an increase of $20.7 million year-over-year, which
    mainly due to the loss related to the divestiture of IPTV business.

operating income of $8.5 million for the corresponding period of 2011.
Operating loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was $31.4

Overview of Recent Key Events

New Strategy

In mid-2012, the Company divested its underperforming IPTV equipment business
and announced its new strategic plan to drive growth and profitability and
enhance shareholder value. The plan includes three primary strategies: deploy
a TV over IP Services Platform, pursue internal product development and
strategic acquisitions to build out these new services, and design an optimal
operating structure to maximize the potential of business units and foster
innovation, collaboration and efficiency.

New Partnerships

In the last several months, the Company has invested in and expanded strategic
partnerships as part of the roll-out of its new strategy. These are intended
to build momentum in 2013 as well as accelerate UTStarcom's ongoing transition
into a higher growth business and becoming a next generation media service
provider.

  oThe Company acquired a 44% stake in aioTV Inc., a leading international
    cloud-based video aggregation and distribution platform, becoming its
    largest investor. The transaction gives the Company access to technology
    that will bolster its rollout of subscription-based value added media
    services.
  oThe Company made significant progress in the introduction of media
    operational support services, as its partner, iTV Media, of which the
    Company is the single largest investor, launched new ventures in Thailand
    and Spain.

       oiTV Media announced it will deploy its IPTV and video on demand (VOD)
         services in Spain in January 2013 through a strategic partnership
         with Mira TV.
       oiTV Media announced a launch of the MeTV IPTV service in Thailand in
         October 2012 through a strategic partnership with a leading national
         telecommunications services provider.

  oIn October 2012 the Company expanded its partnership with Chunghwa Telecom
    to further strengthen its broadband services in Taiwan.

Returning Cash to Shareholders

UTStarcom has been actively working to enhance value for its long-term
shareholders. The Company completed a US$30 million cash tender offer in the
first quarter of 2013 for 25,000,000 of the Company's outstanding ordinary
shares at a purchase price of US$1.20 per share. In addition, the Company's
continued commitment to its share repurchase program reflects management's
long-term confidence in the Company. As of December 31, 2012, the Company has
repurchased approximately 12.5 million shares, amounting to $15.0 million
worth of the cumulative total under the current $20 million shares repurchase
program.

NASDAQ Listing Qualification Compliance

UTStarcom will hold an extraordinary general meeting of its shareholders on
March 21, 2013 to vote on a plan to effect a 3:1 reverse share split with the
goal of increasing the liquidity of the shares and increase the trading price
per share. On March 15, 2013, the Company received formal notice from NASDAQ
that it was not in compliance with the listing requirements relating to the
price per share at which the Company's shares trade. The Company has 180 days
to regain compliance with the listing standards. The Company expects the
reverse share split to increase the trading price and bring the Company into
compliance.

Business Outlook

The Company currently views 2013 as a year of investment and continued
transition. At the same time, the Company presently expects toachieve a
degree ofincrementalimprovement inoverall financial performance versus
2012. There will be a need to replace unprofitable revenue that was removed
with the IPTV divestiture and revenue will be belowlast year while this
process is on-going and the top line is in transition. At the same time, the
Company will focus onholding margins relatively stable by maintaining
asimilar product mix to 2012 as well as making additional progress with
lowering operating expenses.

Importantly, the Company's current outlook is based on constant currency rates
versus 2012.

Looking further ahead, the new strategic plan is expected to in time result in
a more predictable, recurring revenue stream based on an array of sources,
including subscription fees, platform licensing fees, and fees on value added
services as well as higher margins due to the increased profitability of these
revenues. UTStarcom will be focusing its growth efforts in China and across
Asia and, based on current plans, expects to invest in and launch its TV over
IP services in multiple countries during 2013. The Company anticipates
revenue from the new TV over IP services to become the majority revenue
contributor for UTStarcom by 2015, with gross margins in this line of the
business exceeding 50% in that same timeframe.

Mr. Wong concluded, "As we look ahead, we are aware that this is a year that
will require focus and hard work as we invest in and build a platform for the
future. However, we are confident that our new strategy will translate into
accelerated rates of growth and significant overall improvement in the
Company's business performance beginning in 2014 and we are excited about the
long-term opportunities before us."

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial results presented in
accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
("GAAP"), the Company uses certain non-GAAP measures to present those GAAP
metrics as if IPTV business and PHS-related deferred revenue amortization had
been excluded prior to each time period reflected. The presentation of these
non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or
as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in
accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial
measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP
Financial Data" set forth at the end of this press release.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful
supplemental information regarding its operating performance by excluding
amortization of PHS net sales and IPTV related business that may not be
indicative of its operating performance. The Company believes that both
management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial
measures in assessing its operating performance and when planning and
forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate
management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical performance. The
Company computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent
method from quarter to quarter. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial
measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with
respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and
operational decision making. These non-GAAP measures 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

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL DATA

(In thousands)
(Unaudited)
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 PHS-related deferred
revenue amortization and IPTV related business 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

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP AND NON-GAAP FINANCIAL DATA

($ in thousand)

(Unaudited)
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 PHS-related deferred revenue amortization and IPTV
related business 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.
