“We continued to make progress in the fourth quarter toward our business objectives,” stated Dr. M. Ali Khatibzadeh, President and CEO of TranSwitch Corporation. “Our financial metrics improved with an approximately 18% sequential increase in quarterly revenue and an increase in gross margin to 75%, driven by a favorable mix of IP licensing revenue. More importantly, on the new video connectivity business, we are tracking to our customer and sales expansion plans. Starting with our first customer at the beginning of the quarter, we exited the fourth quarter by commencing production shipments of HDplay™ products for four customers. We anticipate the list of active HDplay™ customers to grow to seven by the end of the first quarter of 2013 and to continuously increase throughout 2013. We have announced some of our new customers during the quarter and more recently. Our list of new customer opportunities for HDplay™ products has increased to over 70 potential customers and we anticipate a marked increase in revenue in the second half of 2013 as more customers reach production phase. Another important catalyst in the ramp of our new business has been the introduction at the 2013 CES of the new members of the HDplay™ product family, which support the new MHL mobile video connectivity standard , in addition to HDMI and DisplayPort , for pico projectors, digital TV’s and other applications. MHL is becoming widely adopted by smart phone and tablet OEM’s with over 220Mu installed base and rapid growth in forecasted volume. TranSwitch is the first company to announce a multi-mode transceiver covering all three major standards. With regards to improving our balance sheet, we have signed an agreement for the sale of one set of our legacy telecom patents and continue to market the balance of our legacy patent portfolio. We will report financial information relating to patent transactions only after the contracts are concluded and closed.”

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Comparable U.S. GAAP Measures (Unaudited)

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release and related conference call or webcast to the most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). The reconciliation for historic non-GAAP measures is provided herein on a quantitative basis and for non-GAAP measures that are forward-looking is provided herein on a qualitative basis.

The non-GAAP measures used in this earnings release and related conference call differ from GAAP in that they exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, the effects of special charges such as asset impairments, restructuring charges and benefits from the reversal of accrued royalties. The Company’s basis for these adjustments is described below. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for internal reporting and forecasting purposes. The Company has provided these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to GAAP financial results because it believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to certain investors and financial analysts for comparison across accounting periods not influenced by certain non-cash items that are not used by management when evaluating the Company’s historical and prospective financial performance.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and believes that such measures are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance as the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures that adjust for the impact of stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, the effects of special charges such as asset impairments and restructuring charges and benefits from the reversal of accrued royalties provides investors and financial analysts with a consistent basis for comparison across accounting periods and, therefore, are useful to investors and financial analysts in helping them to better understand the Company’s operating results and underlying operational trends.

We do not provide forward-looking GAAP measures or a reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures because of our inability to project special charges, asset impairments, employee separation costs and stock-based compensation related expenses.

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. The non-GAAP measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We endeavor to compensate for the limitations of these non-GAAP measures by providing GAAP financial statements, descriptions of the reconciling items and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures so that investors can appropriately incorporate the non-GAAP measures and their limitations into their analyses. Please see our financial statements and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition" that will be included in the periodic report we expect to file with the SEC with respect to the financial periods discussed herein.
