Business Wire

HILLSBORO, Ore. -- April 25, 2013

Radisys Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a market leader enabling wireless
infrastructure solutions for telecom, aerospace, and defense applications,
announced first quarter 2013 revenues of $68.2 million and a GAAP net loss of
$6.6 million or $0.23 per share. First quarter non-GAAP net loss was $0.1
million or $0.00 per diluted share. First quarter non-GAAP results exclude the
amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation,
restructuring and acquisition-related charges, and non-cash tax expense. A
reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is located in the tables included
at the end of this press release.

Commenting on the first quarter results, Brian Bronson, Radisys' President and
Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased that along with successfully
meeting a number of key product development and operational objectives set
seven months ago, our first quarter revenue and profitability met our
guidance. During the first quarter, we released essential features that
enabled the recognition of our first MPX-12000 (MRF) revenue. The funnel for
our new MRF is strong and we are in multiple trials with carriers in Voice
over LTE applications as well as enabling RCS in the IP Multimedia Subsystem
(IMS) core. We also are seeing nice traction in our solutions business which
takes our breadth of technology to develop products for our customers such as
load balancing, edge routing, intelligent gateways and compact packet cores.”

First Quarter Financial Highlights

  *Revenue of $68.2 million; ATCA and Software-Solutions revenue of $46.5
    million accounted for 68% of revenue.
  *Achieved platform design wins in several key markets such as deep packet
    inspection and intelligent gateways. These design wins spanned 19
    customers, eight of which were new to Radisys.
  *GAAP gross margin was 29% and Non-GAAP gross margin was 32%. An
    anticipated sequential quarterly decrease in Software-Solutions revenue
    resulted in a one percentage point decline in gross margin when compared
    to the fourth quarter 2012.
  *Total GAAP Research and Development (R&D) and Selling, General and
    Administrative (SG&A) expenses were $22.6 million and non-GAAP R&D and
    SG&A expenses were $21.7 million; representing a $0.3 million sequential
    reduction when compared to the fourth quarter 2012.
  *Cash and cash equivalents were $31.7 million at the end of the first
    quarter; a $1.4 million sequential decrease from the fourth quarter. On
    February 14, 2013, we repaid $16.9 million of our convertible notes. As of
    March 31, 2013, we had $15.0 million outstanding on our Silicon Valley
    Bank line of credit. Net of changes in debt, cash increased $0.5 million
    from the fourth quarter 2012.

Second Quarter 2013 Outlook

  *Revenue is expected between $63 million and $69 million.
  *Non-GAAP gross margin rate is expected to rise to approximately 34% to 36%
    of sales. A sequential quarterly increase in Software-Solutions revenue is
    expected to positively affect overall gross margins.
  *Non-GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses are expected to remain relatively flat.
  *Non-GAAP net income is expected to be between a loss of $0.03 and a profit
    of $0.09 per diluted share.
  *The Company expects to generate positive cash flow in the second quarter.

Mr. Bronson continued, “Over the last several months, I've spent a significant
amount of time meeting with our customers and employees around the globe. I am
more convinced than ever that the strategic and operational changes we have
made position us well for profitable growth as our customers recognize and
value the unique and cost effective ways we enable their products. We will
continue to focus our entire organization on the significant market
opportunities we have with our MRF, platform, small cell, and solution
products.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements
about the Company's business strategy, financial outlook and expectations for
the second quarter of 2013 and statements related to expense savings or
reductions, operational and administrative efficiencies, revenue growth,
margin improvement, financial performance and other attributes of the Company.
These forward-looking statements are based on the Company's expectations and
assumptions, as of the date such statements are made, regarding the Company's
future operating performance and financial condition, the economy and other
future events or circumstances. Actual results could differ materially from
the outlook guidance and expectations in these forward-looking statements as a
result of a number of risk factors, including, among others, (a) the Company's
dependence on certain customers and high degree of customer concentration, (b)
the Company's use of one contract manufacturer for a significant portion of
the production of its products, (c) the anticipated amount and timing of
revenues from design wins due to the Company's customers' product development
time, cancellations or delays, (d) matters affecting the embedded system
industry, including changes in industry standards, changes in customer
requirements and new product introductions, (e) actions by regulatory
authorities or other third parties, (f) cash generation, (g) changes in tariff
and trade policies and other risks associated with foreign operations, (h)
fluctuations in currency exchange rates, (i) the ability of the Company to
successfully complete any acquisition or divestiture activities, (j) the
Company's ability to successfully manage the transition from 10G to 40G ATCA
product technologies, (k) performance and customer acceptance of the Trillium
line of products, and (l) other factors listed in the Company's reports filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including those listed
under “Risk Factors” in Radisys' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2012, copies of which may be obtained by contacting the Company
at 503-615-1100, from the Company's investor relations web site at
http://investor.radisys.com/, or at the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov.
Although forward-looking statements help provide additional information about
Radisys, investors should keep in mind that forward-looking statements are
inherently less reliable than historical information. Should one or more of
these risks or uncertainties materialize (or the other consequences of such a
development worsen), or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual
outcomes may vary materially from those forecasted or expected. The Company
believes its expectations and assumptions are reasonable, but there can be no
assurance that the expectations reflected herein will be achieved. All
information in this press release is as of April 25, 2013. The Company
undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statement to conform the
statement to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings
release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain expenses,
gains and losses, such as the effects of (a) purchase accounting adjustments,
(b) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (c) stock-based compensation
expense, (d) restructuring and acquisition-related charges (reversals), net,
(e) impairment of goodwill, and (f) non-cash income tax expense. The Company
believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful
information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current
financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the
Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both
management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that
the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In
addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and
forecasting as well as subsequently measuring the Company's performance, and
the Company believes that it is providing investors with financial measures
that most closely align to its internal measurement processes. These non-GAAP
measures are considered to be reflective of the Company's core operating
results as they more closely reflect the essential revenue-generating
activities of the Company and direct operating expenses (resulting in cash
expenditures) needed to perform these revenue-generating activities. The
Company also believes, based on feedback provided to the Company during its
earnings calls' Q&A sessions and discussions with the investment community,
that the non-GAAP financial measures it provides are necessary to allow the
investment community to construct their valuation models to better align its
results and projections with its competitors and market sector, as there is
significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to
certain expenses, gains and losses.

The non-GAAP financial information is presented using a consistent methodology
from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year. These measures should be considered
in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these
non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of
accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial
measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts
associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in
accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate
the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP
financial measures.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP information to GAAP information is included in
the tables below. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company
should not be considered a substitute for or superior to financial measures
calculated in accordance with GAAP, and reconciliations between GAAP and
non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release should be
carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may
be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to,
similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The Company excludes the following expenses, reversals, gains and losses from
its non-GAAP financial measures, when applicable:

(a) Purchase accounting adjustments: Purchase accounting adjustments
consistent of the impact to revenues and cost of sales associated with
adjusting deferred revenue and inventories of acquired companies to fair
value. For deferred revenue, as is the case with our existing business, at the
time of acquisition, the acquired business recorded deferred revenue related
to past transactions for which revenue would have been recognized by the
acquired entity in future periods as revenue recognition criteria were
satisfied. However, purchase accounting rules require us to write down a
portion of this deferred revenue to its then current fair value, which is
equivalent to the cost to complete the outstanding obligations required to
earn the deferred revenue plus a reasonable margin. Consequently, in
post-acquisition periods, we do not recognize the full amount of this deferred
revenue. When measuring the performance of our business, however, we add back
non-GAAP revenue associated with deferrals for which no future obligations
existed as well as obligations we assumed to provide maintenance or support to
customers of the acquired business that were excluded as a result of these
purchase accounting adjustments. We believe that the non-GAAP revenue
disclosures enhance investors' ability to conduct period-over-period analyses
of our results that reflect the full impact of the acquired business's results
together with the results from our pre-existing products and services.

In addition, the non-GAAP financial results exclude the impact to cost of
sales from the markup of inventories required by GAAP as part of the fair
value adjustments required under purchase accounting for business
combinations. This results from marking the acquired company's inventory to
fair value at the time of acquisition. This charge is not factored into
management's evaluation of potential acquisitions or our performance after
completion of acquisitions, because it is not related to our core operating
performance, and the frequency and amount of this type of charge can vary
significantly based on the size and timing of our acquisitions. Excluding this
data provides investors with a basis to compare the company against the
performance of other companies without this variability.

(b) Amortization of acquired intangible assets: Amortization of
acquisition-related intangible assets primarily relate to core and existing
technologies, patents, trade name and customer relationships that were
acquired with the acquisitions of Continuous Computing, Convedia, MCPD and
Pactolus. The Company excludes the amortization of acquisition-related
intangible assets because it does not reflect the Company's ongoing business
and it does not have a direct correlation to the operation of the Company's
business. In addition, in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally
recognizes expenses for internally-developed intangible assets as they are
incurred, notwithstanding the potential future benefit such assets may
provide. Unlike internally-developed intangible assets, however, and also in
accordance with GAAP, the Company generally capitalizes the cost of acquired
intangible assets and recognizes that cost as an expense over the useful lives
of the assets acquired. As a result of their GAAP treatment, there is an
inherent lack of comparability between the financial performance of
internally-developed intangible assets and acquired intangible assets.
Accordingly, the Company believes it is useful to provide, as a supplement to
its GAAP operating results, non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the
amortization of acquired intangibles in order to enhance the
period-over-period comparison of its operating results, as there is
significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to
this expense.

(c) Stock-based compensation: Stock-based compensation consists of expenses
recorded under GAAP, in connection with stock awards such as stock options,
restricted stock awards and restricted stock units granted under the Company's
equity incentive plans and shares issued pursuant to the Company's employee
stock purchase plan. The Company excludes stock-based compensation from
non-GAAP financial measures because it is a non-cash measurement that does not
reflect the Company's ongoing business and because the Company believes that
investors want to understand the impact on the Company of the adoption of the
applicable GAAP surrounding share based payments; the Company believes that
the provision of non-GAAP information that excludes stock-based compensation
improves the ability of investors to compare its period-over-period operating
results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across
companies with respect to this expense.

(d) Restructuring and acquisition-related charges, net: Restructuring and
acquisition-related charges, net: Restructuring primarily relates to
activities engaged in by the Company's management to simplify and focus its
infrastructure. Restructuring and other charges are excluded from non-GAAP
financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities.
Although the Company has engaged in various restructuring activities over the
past several years, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of
business objectives. The Company does not engage in restructuring activities
in the ordinary course of business. As such, the Company believes it is
appropriate to exclude restructuring charges from its non-GAAP financial
measures because it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company's
period-over-period operating results.

In addition to restructuring activities, we exclude certain other
acquisition-related items including the following, when applicable: (i)
integration related charges; and (ii) acquisition-related charges.
Acquisitions result in non-recurring operating expenses, which would not
otherwise have been incurred by us in the normal course of our business
operations. Integration charges include, among other things, expenses
associated with operational consolidation, training, rebranding and
consulting. Acquisition-related charges include transaction fees and legal and
professional service expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions. We
believe that providing non-GAAP information for acquisition-related expense
items in addition to the corresponding GAAP information allows the users of
our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and
current results of our continuing operations, and also facilitates comparisons
to less acquisitive peer companies.

(e) Impairment of goodwill: The goodwill impairment charge relates to a write
down of balances associated with previous acquisitions. The Company excludes
the goodwill impairment charge because it is unusual in nature and does not
reflect the operation of the Company's ongoing business. Additionally, its
exclusion enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s
period-over-period operating results.

(f) Income taxes: Non-GAAP income tax expense is equal to the Company's
projected cash tax expense. Adjustments to GAAP income tax expense are
required to eliminate the recognition of tax expense from profitable entities
where we utilize deferred tax assets to offset current period tax liabilities.
We believe that providing this non-GAAP figure is useful to our investors as
it more closely represents the true economic impact of our tax positions.
