We expect new product revenue to sustain strong growth in the second half and throughout 2015,” said Chris Gardner, CEO of Vitesse. “We are very pleased with the traction of our new product portfolio in the market. Our success in converting design wins to growing new product revenue, expanding relationships with existing customers and winning new major customers has given us increased confidence in our position in the market and our business model going forward. Design win performance is the primary leading indicator for future growth. In the first half of 2014, total new product wins increased more than 40% from the year ago period. Vitesse’s Carrier Ethernet switch engines are leading our success, with wins for just these products up nearly 100% from last year. Strong momentum is being driven by our core Carrier and Enterprise markets, as well as accelerating traction in Ethernet-based IoT, which now represent over 25% of our design wins.” Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Financial Results Summary *Total net revenue was $25.6 million, compared to $27.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and $24.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *Product revenue was $24.9 million, compared to $24.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and $24.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *The product lines contributed the following as a percentage of product revenue as compared to the first quarter of fiscal year 2014: *Carrier networking products: 47.6% versus 52.1% *Enterprise networking products: 51.7% versus 47.3% *Intellectual property revenue totaled $0.7 million, compared to $2.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and $0.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *Product margins were 55.9%, compared to 57.1% in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and 54.0% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *Operating expenses were $19.0 million, compared to $18.6 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and $17.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *Operating loss was $4.4 million, compared to operating loss of $2.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and $3.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *Non-GAAP operating loss was $2.7 million, compared to non-GAAP operating loss of $0.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 and non-GAAP operating loss of $2.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. *Net loss was $5.8 million, or $0.10 per basic and fully diluted share.

VTSS-F Cautions Regarding Forward Looking Statements All statements included or incorporated by reference in this release and the related conference call for analysts and investors, other than statements or characterizations of historical fact, are forward-looking statements that are based on our current expectations, estimates and projections about our business and industry, management’s beliefs, and certain assumptions made by us, all of which are subject to change. Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “predicts,” and similar terms, and variations or negatives of these words. Examples of forward-looking statements in this release include the Company’s financial outlook for its third quarter and full year of fiscal 2014, projected revenues from new products and anticipated revenue growth. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and the Company’s actual results may differ significantly from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors and uncertainties that could affect the Company’s forward-looking statements include, among other things: identification of feasible new product initiatives, management of R&D efforts and the resulting successful development of new products and product platforms; acceptance by customers of the Company’s products; reliance on key suppliers; rapid technological change in the industries in which the Company operates; and competitive factors, including pricing pressures and the introduction by others of new products with similar or better functionality than the Company’s products. These and other risks are more fully described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which should be read in conjunction herewith for a further discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Non-GAAP Measures A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures.Other companies may use different non-GAAP measures and presentation of results. We provide non-GAAP measures of non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) as a supplement to financial results based on GAAP operating expenses, GAAP income (loss) from operations and GAAP net income (loss). The Company believes that the additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for the purpose of financial analysis.We believe the presentation of non-GAAP measures provides investors with additional insight into underlying operating results and prospects for the future by excluding gains, losses and other charges that are considered by management to be outside of the Company’s core operating results. Management uses these measures internally to evaluate the Company’s in-period operating performance before taking into account these non-operating gains, losses and charges.In addition, the measures are used for planning and forecasting of the Company’s performance in future periods. In deriving non-GAAP operating expenses from GAAP operating expenses, we exclude stock-based compensation charges and amortization of intangible assets. In deriving non-GAAP income (loss) from operations from GAAP income (loss) from operations, we exclude stock-based compensation charges and amortization of intangible assets. In deriving non-GAAP net income (loss) from GAAP net income (loss), we further exclude loss on extinguishment of debt and gain on the embedded derivative. Stock-based compensation charges, amortization of intangible assets, loss on extinguishment of debt, and gain on the embedded derivative represent charges that recur in amounts unrelated to the Company’s operations. The non-GAAP financial measures we provide have certain limitations because they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operation of our business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) are in addition to, and are not a substitute for or superior to, operating expenses, income (loss) from operations and net income (loss), which are prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. A detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is set forth below. Investors are encouraged to review these reconciliations to appropriately incorporate the non-GAAP measures and the limitations of these measures into their analyses. For complete information on stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, loss on extinguishment of debt, and the change in the fair value of our embedded derivatives, please see our Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014 and Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2013.
