Further information about non-GAAP measures is provided below and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the comparable GAAP results is provided after the financial statements attached to this release.

“We made meaningful progress in the third quarter toward our business objectives,” stated Dr. M. Ali Khatibzadeh, President and CEO of TranSwitch Corporation. “In addition to 24% quarterly sequential revenue growth driven by IP licensing opportunities and increased royalty revenue, we achieved significant on-going reductions in expenses due to the restructuring plan we initiated earlier in the quarter. On the new video connectivity business front, we passed an important milestone of initial production shipments of HDplay™ product for our first customer who also plans to incorporate HDplay™ in new products. In addition, we are making progress securing new customers from an expanding list of opportunities and anticipate additional customers reaching production ramp in the fourth quarter and as we move into 2013. Overall, through the combination of an increased backlog of telecom products, IP licensing opportunities, royalty revenue and ramp of HDplay™ product, we are targeting further sequential growth in the fourth quarter. With regard to improving our balance sheet, as we have previously announced, our primary plan is the sale of telecom patents. We are making tangible progress towards the sale of our patents and anticipate completing a transaction by the end of the year.”

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Comparable U.S. GAAP Measures (Unaudited)

Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release and related conference call or webcast to the most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). The reconciliation for historic non-GAAP measures is provided herein on a quantitative basis and for non-GAAP measures that are forward-looking is provided herein on a qualitative basis.

The non-GAAP measures used in this earnings release and related conference call differ from GAAP in that they exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, the effects of special charges such as asset impairments, restructuring charges and benefits from the reversal of accrued royalties. The Company’s basis for these adjustments is described below. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for internal reporting and forecasting purposes. The Company has provided these non-GAAP financial measures in addition to GAAP financial results because it believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to certain investors and financial analysts for comparison across accounting periods not influenced by certain non-cash items that are not used by management when evaluating the Company’s historical and prospective financial performance.

Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and believes that such measures are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance as the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures that adjust for the impact of stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, the effects of special charges such as asset impairments and restructuring charges and benefits from the reversal of accrued royalties provides investors and financial analysts with a consistent basis for comparison across accounting periods and, therefore, are useful to investors and financial analysts in helping them to better understand the Company’s operating results and underlying operational trends.

We do not provide forward-looking GAAP measures or a reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures because of our inability to project special charges, asset impairments, employee separation costs and stock-based compensation related expenses.

The non-GAAP financial measures we provide have certain limitations because they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operation of our business as determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP measures are in addition to, and not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We endeavor to compensate for the limitations of these non-GAAP measures by providing GAAP financial statements, descriptions of the reconciling items and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures so that investors can appropriately incorporate the non-GAAP measures and their limitations into their analyses. Please see our financial statements and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition" that will be included in the periodic report we expect to file with the SEC with respect to the financial periods discussed herein.
