CAUTION REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING INFORMATION

Certain statements in this press release which are not historical facts constitute forward-looking statements or forward-looking information within the meaning of applicable securities laws ("forward-looking statements"). Statements related to Sandvine's projected revenues, earnings, growth rates, revenue mix and product plans are forward-looking statements as are any statements relating to future events, conditions or circumstances. The use of terms such as "may", "anticipated", "expected", "projected", "targeting", "estimate", "intend" and similar terms are intended to assist in identification of these forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any such forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are not promises or guarantees of future performance and involve both known and unknown risks and uncertainties that may cause the actual results, performance, achievements or developments of the Company to differ materially from the results, performance, achievements or developments expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.   Forward-looking statements are based on management's current plans, estimates, projections, beliefs and opinions, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements should assumptions related to these plans, estimates, projections, beliefs and opinions change.

 

Many factors could cause the actual results of the Company to differ materially from the results, performance, achievements or developments expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, each of the following factors, and those factors which are further discussed in the Company's Annual Information Form ("AIF"), a copy of which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

·    The forecasted demand or opportunity with any particular customer is subject to change and is not in any way guaranteed or committed and the ultimate timing of receipt of any orders from any such customer is uncertain as is the timing of when any such order may translate to revenue for the Company;

·    The Company's revenues may fluctuate from quarter to quarter and year to year depending upon sales cycles, customer demand and the timing of customer purchase decisions;

·    The Company's gross margins may fluctuate from period to period depending upon a variety of factors including product mix in the quarter, competitive pricing pressures and the level of sales generated through indirect channels;

·    The Company is dependent upon and expects to continue to derive a large percentage of its revenue from both a small number of key customers and key reseller partners, none of whom are bound to any fixed purchase commitment or exclusivity obligations and could change their buying patterns and/or source of supply at any time, which could have a material impact on the Company's revenues.  The Company's reseller partners may offer their own products which are competitive with the Company's products;

·    The Company faces intense competition in markets where there are typically several different competing technologies and rapid technological changes.  The Company faces the risk of emergence of new technologies that may be either competitive to those of the Company or that change the requirements of the Company's customers for solutions such as those offered by the Company;

·    The Company's growth is dependent on the development of the market for network policy control solutions and the decisions of the Company's target customers to deploy and further invest in those technologies, which decisions may be impacted upon by changing requirements in the area of broadband network management policies and/or changes in the regulatory framework to which the Company's customers may be subject.  In particular, numerous telecommunications legislators and regulators in various jurisdictions have considered or are considering what, if any, regulations might be appropriate with respect to how internet service providers manage the impact of different types of traffic on their networks.  These ongoing processes may cause uncertainty in the network investment decisions of the Company's target customers, and any new rules or regulations that result from these considerations may impact the demand for the Company's products within various markets, including markets that may not be considering any new regulation but where the Company's customers may look to other markets for future guidance or trends;

·    The majority of the Company's operating expenses are denominated in Canadian dollars, U.S. dollars, New Israeli Shekels and Indian rupees. The Company's earnings are impacted by fluctuations in the exchange rates between the U.S. dollar and these currencies.



 

Table 1

1. Non-IFRS Financial Measures

 

The following table provides a reconciliation of net income (loss) and related per share amounts to non-IFRS net income (loss) and the related per share amounts for the periods indicated.  These non-IFRS financial measures, which are used internally by management to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance, exclude the impact of stock based compensation and amortization of intangible assets acquired through business acquisitions (collectively referred to as "Non-IFRS Expenses").  The Company provides these non-IFRS financial measures as it is the Company's view that the Non-IFRS Expenses are either (i) affecting the comparability of results from period to period as the Non-IFRS Expenses are not part of its normal day-to-day operations or only impact the current or comparable period and/or (ii) represent a "non-cash" accounting charge that does not deplete its cash resources.  Accordingly, the Company believes that such financial measures may also be useful to investors in enhancing their understanding of the Company's operating performance.  These non-IFRS measures are not recognized under IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS.  Therefore it is unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other issuers. Non-IFRS financial measures should be considered in the context of the Company's IFRS results.
