ClearOne Reports 2013 First Quarter Financial Results Company Reports Strongest Ever First-Quarter Revenues that Demonstrate Traction from Newly Acquired Businesses PR Newswire SALT LAKE CITY, May 1, 2013 SALT LAKE CITY, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --ClearOne (NASDAQ: CLRO) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. For the 2013 first quarter, revenue for the first time in the first quarter surpassed $11 million, totaling $11.3 million compared with $10.2 million for the first quarter of 2012, an increase of 11%. Gross profit was $7.0 million, or 62% of revenue, compared with $6.1 million, or 60% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP operating income increased by 48% to $1.4 million compared with $953 thousand during the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income grew 54% to $966 thousand, or $0.10 per diluted share, from $626 thousand, or $0.07 per diluted share. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA increased 34% to $1.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share compared with $1.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012. The reconciliation between GAAP and Non-GAAP measures is available in the tables attached to this release. At March 31, 2013, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $42.6 million, down from $55.5 million on December 31, 2012. The cash position at the end of the quarter reflects the final net amount retained from the December 2012 $45 million favorable settlement relating to auction-rate securities, after paying $13.8 million of associated income taxes and $6.75 million in attorneys' fees. "We are pleased that the results, which include record revenues for the seasonally slower first quarter, reflect meaningful contributions from our recent strategic acquisitions of video technology. Newly introduced professional audio products also significantly contributed to this record revenue," said Zee Hakimoglu, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of ClearOne. "Share of video products in our revenue mix has grown significantly, reflecting its increasing importance to our future growth. We continue to evaluate various measures to increase shareholder value, including internal investments in technology, operations, sales and marketing, modest strategic acquisitions, and other alternatives to benefit the company and all shareholders." The first quarter results do not consider the expected receipt of approximately $500,000 in attorneys' fees previously paid to indemnify the company's former CFO, as the Utah Supreme Court's favorable ruling was received in April 2013, after the conclusion of the company's first quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures ClearOne provides non-GAAP financial information in the form of Non-GAAP net income, Adjusted EBITDA and corresponding earnings per share to investors to supplement GAAP financial information. ClearOne believes that excluding certain items from GAAP results allows ClearOne's management to better understand ClearOne's consolidated financial performance from period to period as management does not believe that the excluded items are reflective of underlying operating performance. Non-GAAP net income, Adjusted EBITDA and corresponding earnings per share excludes certain costs and expenses, the details of which are provided in the tables below containing the reconciliation between GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures. The exclusion of these items in the non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent, or unusual. ClearOne believes non-GAAP financial measures will provide investors with useful information to help them evaluate ClearOne's operating results and projections. This non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, net income or other financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations to the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Other companies, including companies in ClearOne's industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than ClearOne does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes. A detailed reconciliation of Non-GAAP net income to GAAP net income is included with this news release.
