Unwired Planet, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPIP) today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014.
“During the second quarter, we pressed forward with our licensing efforts, launched an enforcement action to protect our mobile payment patents, saw key dates set in previously existing litigation, and set the ground work for future licensing options,” said Eric Vetter, president and chief administrative officer of Unwired Planet. “While the licensing environment continues to be difficult, we are encouraged by our progress, as well as external market developments over the past three months. We continue to focus on pursuing a variety of licensing and alternative value creation strategies while closely managing our costs.”
On a GAAP basis, net loss for second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $7.3 million, or $0.07 per share, compared with a net loss of $7.2 million, or $0.07 per share, in the prior quarter, and with a net loss of $11.6 million, or $0.13 per share, in the December quarter of the preceding year.
On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $7.1 million, or $0.07 per share, compared with a net loss of $6.6 million, or $0.06 per share, in the prior quarter, and with a net loss of $6.1 million, or $0.07 per share, in the December quarter of the preceding year. Non-GAAP net loss excludes restructuring, stock-based compensation, strategic costs, discontinued operations, and the tax impact of these items.
A reconciliation between net loss and net loss per share on a GAAP basis and a non-GAAP basis is provided below in a table immediately following the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.

The Company’s stated results include the non-GAAP measures: non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that generally are non-recurring events or are non-cash items that many other companies exclude, in order to compare Unwired Planet with other companies, such as stock-based compensation. These non-GAAP measures also exclude items which management does not consider in evaluating Unwired Planet’s on-going business, such as restructuring costs and discontinued operations. Unwired Planet considers non-GAAP net income (loss) to be an important metric because it provides a useful measure of the operational performance of Unwired Planet and is used by Unwired Planet's management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the financial performance of a company. These non-GAAP measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding Unwired Planet's operating results. These non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
