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.

Non-GAAP Measure

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.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."
