As part of this supply agreement, Globacom will be deploying PT’s SEGway™ Signaling solutions in Nigeria and Ghana and will include both Mobile Number Portability (MNP) and Short Message Service Defense (SMS-D) functions.
• In June 2011, PT announced a revolutionary new open-standards solution set, now named Monterey 8000.

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a "safe harbor" for certain forward-looking statements. This press release contains forward-looking statements which reflect the Company's current views with respect to future events and financial performance, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is subject to the safe harbor provisions of those Sections. The Company’s future operating results are subject to various risks and uncertainties and could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements and may be affected by various trends and factors which are beyond the Company’s control. These risks and uncertainties include, among other factors, business and economic conditions, rapid technological changes accompanied by frequent new product introductions, competitive pressures, dependence on key customers, inability to gauge order flows from customers, fluctuations in quarterly and annual results, the reliance on a limited number of third party suppliers, limitations of PT’s manufacturing capacity and arrangements, the protection of PT’s proprietary technology, errors or defects in our products, the effects of pending or threatened litigation, the dependence on key personnel, changes in critical accounting estimates, potential impairments related to investments, foreign regulations, possible loss or significant curtailment of significant government contracts or subcontracts, and potential material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting. In addition, during weak or uncertain economic periods, customers’ visibility deteriorates causing delays in the placement of their orders. These factors often result in a substantial portion of PT’s revenue being derived from orders placed within a quarter and shipped in the final month of the same quarter. Forward-looking statements should be read in conjunction with the most recent audited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Notes thereto, Risk Factors, and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of the Company, as contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, and other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
As a supplement to the GAAP-based consolidated financial statements contained in this press release, the Company is providing a presentation of non-GAAP financial measures which can be useful to investors to gain an overall understanding of the Company’s current financial performance. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by excluding certain expenses the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses such as the effects of (a) amortization of purchased intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation, © restructuring costs, (d) litigation costs, and (e) impairment charges.
Management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions and forecasting and planning for future periods. We also consider the use of the non-GAAP financial measures to be helpful in assessing various aspects of our business operations.
Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered a substitute for the corresponding GAAP financial information and should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial information.
A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures is included herein.
