GLEN ALLEN, Va., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Straight Path Communications Inc.

Management Commentary

Davidi Jonas, Chief Executive Officer of Straight Path commented, "We have undertaken a series of actions to advance our Spectrum business and position Straight Path as providing a critical element for wireless backhaul solutions.  We've been encouraged by the discussions we've held with key players in the wireless telecom ecosystem, including equipment developers and distributors that service WISPs, wireless carriers, regional service providers and national carriers. We believe that our Spectrum assets represent a compelling option for network build-outs and have identified specific applications to capitalize on our 39 GHz spectrum to provide the market with a viable, cost-effective alternative to fiber and other spectrum bands.  We expect that collaborative go-to-market efforts will bring us closer to monetizing our Spectrum assets.

Mr. Jonas continued, "During the quarter we successfully settled two of our IP enforcement actions as we continue to actively defend our intellectual property portfolio. We're pleased to have demonstrated the strength of our patents through these initial settlements and expect to initiate additional efforts to license our patents.

Mr. Jonas concluded, "While additional IP monetization opportunities will continue to be the near-term driver of revenue, spectrum monetization opportunities are significant and within reach. We remain on track with our 2014 fiscal goals and continue to be optimistic in our outlook going forward."

Note 1—Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited combined and consolidated financial statements of Straight Path Communications Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Straight Path") have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and six months ended January 31, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2014. The balance sheet at July 31, 2013 has been derived from Straight Path's audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. For further information, please refer to the combined and consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in Straight Path's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2013, as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").

Straight Path was incorporated in April 2013. Straight Path's businesses consist of 100% ownership of Straight Path Spectrum, Inc. ("Straight Path Spectrum"), which holds, leases and markets fixed wireless spectrum licenses, and 84.5% ownership of Straight Path IP Group, Inc. ("Straight Path IP"), which holds intellectual property primarily related to communications over the Internet and the licensing and other businesses related to this intellectual property. The "Company" in these financial statements refers to Straight Path, Straight Path Spectrum, and Straight Path IP on a combined and consolidated basis as if Straight Path existed and owned the above interests in these entities in all periods presented.

The Company was formerly a subsidiary of IDT Corporation ("IDT"). On July 31, 2013, the Company was spun-off by IDT to its stockholders and became an independent public company (the "Spin-Off"). The Company authorized the issuance of two classes of its common stock, Class A and Class B. The Spin-Off of the Company occurred by way of a pro rata distribution of the Company's Class A common stock and Class B common stock held by IDT to IDT's stockholders. On the distribution date, each IDT stockholder received one share of the Company's Class A common stock for every two shares of IDT Class A common stock and one share of the Company's Class B common stock for every two shares of IDT Class B common stock held on the record date for the Spin-Off. On July 31, 2013, the Company distributed 0.8 million shares of its Class A common stock (based on 1.6 million shares of IDT Class A common stock that were outstanding on the record date) and 10.7 million shares of its Class B common stock (based on 21.4 million shares of IDT Class B common stock that were outstanding on the record date).

The Company's fiscal year ends on July 31 of each calendar year. Each reference below to a fiscal year refers to the fiscal year ending in the calendar year indicated (e.g., fiscal 2014 refers to the fiscal year ending July 31, 2014).
