"We are disappointed with Aviat's performance in the fiscal first quarter of 2014. While we see an improving pipeline of new business, we are formulating plans to lower the Company's costs with the goal of reducing the Company's revenue breakeven level," says Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "We expect that both our mobile and non-mobile business will build over the next several quarters as our new products ramp, and we remain confident in our ability to grow the Company over the medium and long term." GAAP Financial Results For the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, revenue was $93.4 million, compared with $115.0 million in the year-ago quarter. The Company reported net loss, including discontinued operations, of $(13.6) million or $(0.22) per share, compared with a net loss of $(2.2) million or $(0.04) per share in the year-ago quarter. Loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(13.7) million, or $(0.22) per share, compared with the loss from continuing operations of $(0.8) million, or $(0.01) per share, in the year-ago quarter. Revenue and results of operations from the Company's WiMAX business are classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Cash and cash equivalents were $79.3 million as of September27, 2013 compared with $90.0 million as of the end of the prior quarter. The decrease in cash is primarily due to cash used from operating activities, capital spending for product introduction, and the payback of $2.8 million in debt. Non-GAAP Financial Results Non-GAAP loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(7.8) million, or $(0.13) per share, compared with a non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $2.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. The first quarter of fiscal year 2014 non-GAAP loss from continuing operations excluded $6.3 million of pre-tax charges composed primarily of the following: o$1.5 million for share-based compensation expense o$4.5 million of restructuring charges o$0.1 million for amortization of purchased intangibles o$0.2 million of warehouse consolidation costs Fiscal first quarter 2014 Adjusted EBITDA was $(5.7) million, compared with $5.3 million in the year-ago quarter. In addition to the $6.3 million of pre-tax charges excluded from non-GAAP loss from continuing operations noted above, fiscal first quarter 2014 Adjusted EBITDA also excludes $1.5 million of pre-tax charges comprised of the following: o$1.4 million of depreciation and amortization on property, plant and equipment o$0.1 million of interest expense A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the fiscal first quarter along with accompanying notes is provided on Table 4. First Quarter Revenue by Region Revenue in the North America region was $33.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with $38.7 million in the year-ago quarter. International revenue was $59.7 million, compared with $76.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Outlook Based on current trends, fiscal second quarter of 2014 revenue outlook range is expected to be between $100 million and $107 million. Fiscal second quarter of 2014 Non-GAAP loss from continuing operations is expected to be in the range of $(0.08) to $(0.03) per share. Due to the high variability and difficulty in predicting certain items that affect GAAP net income (loss), such as tax rates and stock price, Aviat Networks is unable to provide a complete reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share to non-GAAP income (loss) per diluted share on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable efforts.

Non-GAAP Measures and Comparative Financial Information Aviat Networks, Inc. reports information in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Management of Aviat Networks monitors gross margin, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, operating income or loss, income tax provision or benefit, income or loss from continuing operations, basic and diluted income or loss per share from continuing operations and adjusted earnings (losses) before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") adjusted to exclude certain costs, charges, gains and losses, on a non-GAAP basis for planning and forecasting results in future periods, and may use these measures for some management compensation purposes. These measures exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses as shown on the attached Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures table. As a result, management is presenting these non-GAAP measures in addition to results reported in accordance with GAAP to better communicate underlying operational and financial performance in each period. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any given period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP measures enhance the ability of an investor to analyze trends in Aviat Networks' business and to better understand our performance. Aviat Networks' management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Aviat Networks presents these non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate its financial performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are included in the tables below.

AVIAT NETWORKS, INC. Quarter Ended September27, 2013 Summaries RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND REGULATION G DISCLOSURE To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we provide additional measures of gross margin, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, operating income or loss, income tax provision or benefit, income or loss from continuing operations, basic and diluted income or loss per share from continuing operations, and adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA"), adjusted to exclude certain costs, charges, gains and losses, as set forth below. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. We also believe these non-GAAP measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze trends in our business and to understand our performance. In addition, we may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in our forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning process and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Any analysis of non-GAAP financial measures should be used only in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP follow. Table 4 AVIAT NETWORKS, INC.

Our non-GAAP income or loss from continuing operations excluded share-based compensation, warehouse consolidation costs, amortization of purchased technology, transactional taxes assessments, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, and adjustment to reflect pro forma tax rate. Adjusted EBITDA was determined by excluding depreciation and amortization on property, plant and equipment, interest expense, provision for income taxes, and non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments, as set forth above, from the GAAP income (loss) from continuing operations. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP items provides meaningful supplemental information to investors, when viewed in conjunction with, and not in lieu of, our GAAP results. However, the non-GAAP financial measures have not been prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Table 5 AVIAT NETWORKS, INC.
