UNWIRED PLANET, INC. ANNOUNCES THIRD QUARTER FISCAL 2014 FINANCIAL RESULTS
Unwired Planet, Inc. (NASDAQ: UPIP) today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2014.
“The third quarter was a milestone for Unwired Planet as the company’s value creation strategies resulted in the signing of a license and patent sale agreement (which closed in April), and the initiation of two lawsuits filed internationally,” said Eric Vetter, president and chief administrative officer of Unwired Planet. “These initiatives, which are significant in scope and magnitude, provide the framework for future transactions. From an operational standpoint, the company is well capitalized, positioned to enforce our portfolio rights and poised to maximize returns for shareholders.”
On a GAAP basis, net loss for third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2014 was $9.4 million, or $0.09 per share, compared with a net loss of $7.3 million, or $0.07 per share, in the prior quarter, and with a net loss of $12.2 million, or $0.13 per share, in the March quarter of the preceding year.
On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2014, was $8.4 million, or $0.08 per share, compared with a net loss of $7.1 million, or $0.07 per share, in the prior quarter, and with a net loss of $5.8 million, or $0.06 per share, in the March 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 from a GAAP basis to 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.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
