For the year ended June 30, 2012 Ubiquiti reported revenues of $353.5 million, an increase of 79% compared to revenues of $197.9 million in fiscal 2011.
For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, GAAP net income was $28.5 million, an increase of 57% compared to GAAP net income of $18.1 million for the same period the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $27.9 million, an increase of 52% compared to $18.3 million for the same period last year.
For the year ended June 30, 2012, GAAP net income was $102.6 million, an increase of 106% compared to GAAP net income of $49.7 million for the same period the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $102.6 million, an increase of 104% compared to $50.3 million for the same period last year.
The following table reconciles GAAP net income to non-GAAP net income and weighted-average shares used in computing net income (loss)per share of common stock-diluted to weighted-average shares used in computing non-GAAP Diluted EPS:
"Ubiquiti's business model has translated into a unique combination of exceptional growth and industry-leading profitability fundamentals," said Robert J. Pera, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ubiquiti Networks. "Our innovative research and development strategy, and the early success of our technology diversification into new platforms and markets, shows that we are only scratching the surface of the leverage and scalability inherent in our model. This past quarter our new platform growth continued, lead by Unifi, and momentum was further strengthened by the introduction of mFi, a revolutionary machine-to-machine communications technology platform."
Added Mr. Pera: "The Ubiquiti brand is dominant in our markets and demand for our technology is stronger than ever. This dominance has led to an unfortunate side effect whereby a few previously terminated distributors setup counterfeit AirMax manufacturing operations. Although they have impacted our sales channel and caused some marketplace confusion, we have made substantial and tangible progress in diminishing their activities through a comprehensive legal strategy that has resulted in imprisonment, injunctions, and asset freezes of the counterfeiters. In addition, Ubiquiti has implemented sophisticated anti-counterfeit manufacturing processes to substantially protect all of our new platforms and new AirMax products against any future counterfeit attempts."
Share Repurchase Program
Ubiquiti today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the company to repurchase as much as $100 million of Company common stock. The Company is authorized to repurchase shares of its outstanding common stock on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The share repurchase program will be funded from existing cash on hand and from the proceeds related to amended term loan and revolving credit line agreements. We expect the share repurchase program will commence Monday, August 13, 2012.
Ubiquiti currently believes the demand environment in its end markets supports the following forecast for the Company's fiscal first quarter ending September 30, 2012:
Ubiquiti Networks will discuss the Company's financial results by conference call at 2:00 p.m. PDT today. Instructions for listening to the conference call over the Web are available on the investor relations portion of UBIQUITI NETWORKS's website at www.ubnt.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are adjusted to exclude certain recurring costs, expenses and gains such as stock based compensation expense, income from a coexistence licensing agreement and the tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments. In addition, our non-GAAP adjustments present shares of Series A preferred stock as if these shares had been converted to common stock throughout the periods presented. Reconciliations of the adjustments to GAAP results for the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 are provided below. In addition, an explanation of the ways in which management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, the substance behind management's decision to use this non-GAAP financial information, the material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, the manner in which management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons management believes that this non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to investors is included under "About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments" after the tables below.
These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain recurring costs, expenses and gains.
We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding non-cash expenses, significant recurring items that we believe are important to understanding our financial, and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company's operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.
Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures used by Ubiquiti Networks
We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of recurring stock-based compensation expense, income from a coexistence licensing agreement and the tax effect of these adjustments. In addition, our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is calculated using weighted-average shares outstanding as if Series A preferred stock outstanding had been converted to common stock throughout the periods presented. Examples of items excluded from net income are:
Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Information to Investors
These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to non-GAAP Net Income" and "Reconciliation of Weighted-Average Shares Used in Computing Net Income (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock-Diluted to Weighted-Average Shares Used In Computing Non-GAAP Diluted EPS" included in this press release.
