UTStarcom Reports Unaudited Financial Results for Second Quarter 2018

Hong Kong, August 3, 2018— UTStarcom (“UT” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: UTSI), a global telecommunications infrastructure provider, today reported its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

UTStarcom’s Chief Executive Officer Tim Ti commented, “Second quarter results met our expectations.  Revenue was at the high end of guidance due to the initiation of two large projects in India.  Despite a gross margin decrease from a year ago due to changes in product and geographic mix, we achieved positive operating income for the quarter.  Importantly, our financial position remains strong, with over $80 million in cash.”  

Tim continued, “Innovation is our strength and we are committed to technology leadership through continuing investments in our R&D capabilities. We are excited about the opportunities presented by the worldwide transition to 5G wireless network and are positioning our product portfolio accordingly. For instance, we are an early entrant in SRv6 routing platforms, as well as offering leading synchronization and software-defined network products. Our new product offerings enable network operators to meet the challenges of the rapidly escalating network traffic generated by new trends such as internet of things and 5G mobile data.”

Business Highlights

 

In July 2018, UT participated in the SoftBank World 2018 Exhibition and Conference in Tokyo, where the Company displayed a number of its newest products. Products displayed at the show included the next-generation SRv6-based routing platforms SkyFlux products, 5G-ready timing solution SyncRing, the SDN platform “SOO Station” and the intelligent gateway device “VBG”. In addition, the executive management team presented its view on optimal networking solutions to facilitate 5G deployment and operations

 

In July 2018, the Company showcased a number of its cutting-edge technologies in the UT-sponsored “Network Evolution 2018 – Live Demonstration” event in Tokyo. These technologies enable networks to evolve to support 5G, IoT (“Internet of Things”) and M2M (”Machine-to-Machine”).  UT’s existing, new and potential customers as well as strategic partners attended the event

 

UT introduced its new smart commercial refrigerator “goBox” featuring a new integrated load and image sensing technology. The Company began initial commercial deployment of this new retail product in the second quarter and expects to see a significant ramp in shipment in the second half of 2018
