Presentation on non-GAAP Net Income Calculation

The Company believes that the non-GAAP presentation of net income and diluted EPS presented in this press release is useful to investors in comparing results for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 to the same period in 2012 because the exclusion of the above noted expenses may provide a more meaningful analysis of the Company's core operating results. Further, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand how the expenses associated with equity-based compensations expenses are reflected on its statements of income.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains statements that qualify as "forward-looking statements" under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including Mr. Elyakim's statements about the Company's optimism regarding the business turnaround and focus on generating positive operating profitability. In addition, the events described in these forward-looking statements may not actually arise as a result of various factors, including the timing and ability of the consumer electronics and DECT markets to recover and the corresponding recovery of DSP Group's customers; unexpected delays in the commercial launch of new products; the impact of reductions in lead times and inventory levels by DSP Group customers and their customers; slower than expected change in the nature of residential communications domain; DSP Group's inability to develop and produce new products at competitive costs and in a timely manner or failure of such products to achieve broad market acceptance; DSPG Group's ability to control operating costs; and general market demand for products that incorporate DSP Group's technology in the market. These factors and other factors which may affect future operating results or DSP Group's stock price are discussed under "RISK FACTORS" in the Form 10‑K for fiscal 2012 as well as other reports DSP Group has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and which are available on DSP Group's Web site (www.dspg.com) under Investor Relations.
