(NYSE: RKUS) today announced financial results for its first quarter of 2013 ended March 31, 2013. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121120/MM17393LOGO) Financial Summary Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 was $57.2 million, an increase of 27% from the first quarter of 2012. GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.3 million, compared with net income of $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2013 was $2.9 million, compared with non-GAAP net income of $5.0 million in the first quarter of 2012. GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.00 for the first quarter of 2013 compared with $0.03 for the first quarter of 2012, based on net income attributable to common stockholders. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.03 for the first quarter of 2013 compared with $0.07 for the first quarter of 2012. A description of the non-GAAP calculations and reconciliation to comparable GAAP measures is provided in the accompanying table entitled "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures." "While we achieved a number of important milestones since our last earnings call, we are disappointed that our Q1 revenue came in below our guidance. During the quarter, we did not experience any material change in the competitive environment. Instead, revenue was impacted by delayed deployments by several service provider customers in the Americas, as well as challenging market conditions in China," said, Selina Lo, President and Chief Executive Officer at Ruckus Wireless. "We continue to engage with customers on these delayed projects and we are encouraged by our progress. In April, we have already received orders from several of these service providers, but are finding that some other projects are taking longer to realize than we previously expected." "We believe that the fundamentals, growth drivers and long-term market opportunity for Ruckus remain intact. The company grew 27% year-over-year, with over 70% yearly growth in the Americas and Europe. Our enterprise business continues to perform well. In addition, we are pleased with our new service provider customer wins, especially amongst tier-1 operators in the U.S. and internationally. With the deployment of our SmartCell Gateway into production environments by a number of operators worldwide, I believe we have significantly bolstered our technology differentiations and strengthened our competitive advantage in the growing market for public Wi-Fi access equipment. We will continue to drive our business forward and focus on delivering value for our customers and shareholders," she said. Business & Financial Highlights o27% revenue growth over Q1 2012 ; Americas revenue grew 73.7% and EMEA revenue grew 69.9% over Q1 2012. oThe company announced today that Sprint's Custom Network Solutions (CNS) group has teamed with Ruckus to deliver enterprise, public sector and federal customers nationwide Ruckus' Smart Wi-Fi products and services as part of Sprint CNS's in-building wireless data solutions portfolio. oIn April, the company received initial orders from three new strategic tier-1 mobile operators, two of them in the U.S., including the recent Sprint CNS group customer announcement. oIn Q1, the company added ten new service provider customers, including the largest cable operator in Mexico. oThe company's SmartCell Gateway is now deployed by a number of operators, including a tier-1 cable operator in the U.S., a tier-1 cable operator in Latin America, a managed service provider in Africa, and two tier-1 mobile operators in Asia. oIn the first quarter, Ruckus Wireless added approximately 2,700 new end-customers within its enterprise business, resulting in a total of approximately 24,400 total end-customers worldwide, including Sandals Resorts International (SRI); a quick service restaurant chain with over 1,000 locations in France; an 84-site hotel chain in Europe; multiple large arenas and stadiums, and the City of San Jose, California. oIn February, we announced a partnership with Intermec targeting the distribution center and manufacturing operations sector where our solutions can improve performance and streamline workflow.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating income and operating margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP dilutive net income per share and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We also provide second quarter 2013 non-GAAP dilutive net income per share and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and forecast future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items: Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation from our non-GAAP operating results. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods. Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangible assets from our non-GAAP operating results. Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense, and it is not part of our core operations. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to future period revenues as well. Change in fair value of preferred stock warrants: We have excluded the effect of the expense resulting from the change in fair value of preferred stock warrants from our non-GAAP operating results. The change in fair value is a non-cash expense, and it is not part of our core operations. Upon completion of our IPO in November 2012, all preferred stock warrants converted to common stock warrants. Our non-GAAP Financial Measures are described as follows: Non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin - Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation and intangible asset amortization expense. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit divided by net revenue. Non-GAAP operating income and operating margin - Non-GAAP operating income is income from operations as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation and intangible asset amortization expense. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP operating income divided by net revenue. Non-GAAP net income and diluted income per share - Non-GAAP net income is net income as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization expense, and the change in fair value of preferred stock warrants. Non-GAAP diluted income per share is non-GAAP net income divided by the non-GAAP weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. For periods presented prior to the Company's IPO, non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding was computed to give effect to the conversion of all redeemable convertible preferred stock, as if conversion had occurred at the beginning of the period. Upon completion of our IPO in November 2012, all preferred stock converted to common stock. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures."
