"As we execute our refined business strategy announced in January, we continue to make meaningful progress in our key 2013 initiative -- advancement of our SEGway Universal Diameter Router product line. During the quarter, we added new Diameter Routing capabilities and features, responded to several major Diameter RFIs/RFPs, quoted over a dozen Diameter opportunities and recognized our first Diameter revenues. We remain very enthusiastic about the opportunities in the Diameter Signaling space, recently further highlighted by the very positive feedback we received on our Signaling Evol ution strategy during our participation at the Mobile World Congress, the CCA Global Expo and the Latin America LTE Summit. We expect to increase our sales and marketing investments in our Diameter product line to accelerate its penetration in this growing market."

Forward-Looking Statements  The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a "safe harbor" for certain forward-looking statements. This press release contains forward-looking statements which reflect the Company's current views with respect to future events and financial performance, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is subject to the safe harbor provisions of those Sections. The Company's future operating results are subject to various risks and uncertainties and could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements and may be affected by various trends and factors which are beyond the Company's control. These risks and uncertainties include, among other factors, business and economic conditions, rapid technological changes accompanied by frequent new product introductions, competitive pressures, dependence on key customers and the potential loss of key customers, inability to gauge order flows from customers, fluctuations in quarterly and annual results, the reliance on a limited number of third party suppliers, limitations of PT's manufacturing capacity and arrangements, the protection of PT's proprietary technology, errors or defects in our products, the effects of pending or threatened litigation, the dependence on key personnel, changes in critical accounting estimates, potential impairments related to investments, foreign regulations, possible loss or significant curtailment of significant government contracts or subcontracts, possible effects related to compliance with new conflict-free mineral regulations, potential material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting, and the potential ramifications of our possible inability to comply with NASDAQ's continued listing requirements. In addition, during weak or uncertain economic periods, customers' visibility deteriorates causing delays in the placement of their orders. These factors often result in a substantial portion of PT's revenue being derived from orders placed within a quarter and shipped in the final month of the same quarter. Forward-looking statements should be read in conjunction with the most recent audited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Notes thereto, Risk Factors, and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of the Company, as contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, and other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Non-GAAP Financial Measures  As a supplement to the GAAP-based consolidated financial statements contained in this press release, the Company is providing a presentation of non-GAAP financial measures which can be useful to investors to gain an overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by excluding certain expenses the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses such as the effects of (a) amortization of purchased intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation costs, and (c) restructuring costs.  Management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions and forecasting and planning for future periods. We also consider the use of the non-GAAP financial measures to be helpful in assessing various aspects of our business operations.  Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered a substitute for the corresponding GAAP financial information and should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operat ions in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial information.  A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures is included herein.  A conference call will be held on Friday, May 3, at 10:00 a.m., New York time, to discuss the results. All institutional investors can participate in the conference by dialing (866) 494-3746 or (416) 915-1196. The call will be available simultaneously for all other investors at (866) 494-3387 or (416) 915-1198.

presented, reflect adjustments relating to the following items:   (a) Amortization of purchased intangible assets - a non-cash expense arising from the acquisition of intangible assets that the Company is required to amortize over their expected useful life. The amount of purchased intangible assets increased significantly as a result of the acquisition of the USP and SP2000 signaling technologies acquired from GENBAND.  (b) Stock-based compensation costs - a non-cash expense incurred in accordance with share-based compensation accounting guidance.   (c) Restructuring costs - costs incurred as a result of restructuring activities taken to bring operating expenses more in line with expected revenues.   (d) Basic and diluted net income per common share are identical for the three months ended March 31, 2012.  For more information contact:  Dorrance W.
