2010-05-05 01:34 816



ALAMEDA, Calif., May 5 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- UTStarcom, Inc. (Nasdaq: UTSI), today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2010 ended March 31, 2010.

"Revenue results for the first quarter were in line with expectations. We achieved improved bottom line results compared with the same period a year ago due to the significant changes we have made to our cost structure," said Peter Blackmore, UTStarcom's chief executive officer and president. "We will continue to improve our cost structure and build bookings to put UTStarcom on the path to profitability."

First quarter 2010 Financial Results

Net sales for the first quarter 2010 were $81 million as compared to $119 million in the first quarter of 2009. Gross margins for the first quarter 2010 were 34% as compared to 18% in the first quarter of 2009. The operating loss for the first quarter of 2010 and 2009 was $19 million and $59 million, respectively.

The GAAP net loss attributable to UTStarcom for the first quarter of 2010 was $16 million, or a loss of $0.12 per share, as compared to a loss of $67 million, or $0.54 per share in the first quarter of 2009.

The following significant items affected the first quarter 2010 GAAP operating expenses of $46 million:

-- A $7.5 million restructuring charge primarily related to restructuring

initiatives announced in June 2009.

-- A $1.8 million gain related to the sale of a legacy business.

Net cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of March 31, 2010 was $235 million compared to $267 million on December 31, 2009.

Non-GAAP Results

To enable a comparison of the financial results for the Company on a year-over-year basis the Company has prepared certain non-GAAP results which present the Company's results as if both the divestiture of PCD and the wind-down of the Company's Korea-based handset operations were completed as of the beginning of the earliest period presented prior to each time-period presented.

The first quarter 2010 non-GAAP revenue was $78 million, the non-GAAP gross margin was 34% and the non-GAAP operating loss was $19 million. This compares to the first quarter 2009 non-GAAP revenue of $80 million, the non-GAAP gross margin of 24% and the non-GAAP operating loss of $59 million.

The Company will host a conference call to discuss the results at 2:00 p.m. (PDT) / 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on May 4, 2010 and 5:00 a.m. China time on May 5, 2010.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

On July 1, 2009, the Company divested its Personal Communications Division ("PCD"), which has historically represented a significant portion of the Company's revenues. On December 18, 2009, the Company announced actions to wind down its Korea-based handset manufacturing operations. To enable a comparison of the financial results for the Company on a year-over-year and a quarter-over-quarter basis the Company has prepared certain non-GAAP results which present the Company's results as if both the divestiture of PCD and the wind down of the Company's Korea-based handset operations were completed prior to each time period presented. The reconciliation between GAAP and these non-GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this press release and on the Company's website.

In addition, these non-GAAP measures are among the information management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete

understanding of UTStarcom's underlying results and trends. In addition,

these adjusted non-GAAP results are among the information management uses
