Our growth and long-term value propositions are now driven by our proven new product initiatives.

Presentation on Non-GAAP Net Income Calculation
The Company believes that the non-GAAP presentation of net income and diluted earnings per share presented in this press release is useful to investors in comparing results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 to the same period in 2015 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 compensation are reflected in 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 regarding sequential revenue growth in the third quarter of 2016 led by new product initiatives, sequential improvement in the cordless segment in the third quarter of 2016, as well as achieving market leadership in office VoIP and HDClear gaining recognition.  The results from these statements may not actually arise as a result of various factors, including the market penetration of new products such as HDClear and in the Office segment; unexpected delays in the commercial launch of new products; seasonality and inventory adjustments in the cordless segment; DSP Group's ability to manage costs; DSP Group’s ability to develop and produce new products at competitive costs and in a timely manner and the ability of such products to achieve broad market acceptance; 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 2015, as well as other reports DSP Group has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and which are available on DSP Group’s website (www.dspg.com) under Investor Relations.
