"We continued to effectively manage our business and our cash position with cash totaling approximately $31.2 million at year end."

Omid Tahernia, president and CEO, said, "Fiscal 2012 was a pivotal year for Ikanos in which we established a solid baseline of business while reducing portfolio complexity and managing operating expenses and gross margins. We completed the development of our Velocity-3 chipset and launched this industry-first NodeScale vectoring chipset at the October Broadband World Forum. We are pleased with the positive carrier reception we received as well as a number of service providers who have announced their intent to invest Capex on vectored VDSL2."

"We also began the ramp of our Fusiv® family of CPE products early in the year which by Q4 2012 represented 37% of the company's revenue.

Financial Details
Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), where applicable, excludes the income statement effects of stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, the amortization of intangible assets and gains on the sale of impaired assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis as these additional measures highlight Ikanos' recurring operating results. Ikanos' management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.
