UBIQUITI NETWORKS, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
NOTE 1—BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Business — Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. was incorporated in the State of California in 2003 as Pera Networks, Inc. In 2005 the Company changed its name to Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. and commenced its current operations. In June 2010, the Company was re-incorporated in Delaware.
Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, “Ubiquiti” or the “Company”) is a product driven company that leverages innovative proprietary technologies to deliver networking solutions to both startup and established network operators and service providers.
On October 13, 2011, the Company entered into an underwriting agreement for its initial public offering of common stock at $15.00 per share. The Company's initial public offering closed on October 19, 2011. Immediately prior to the closing of the initial public offering, all outstanding shares of the Company’s preferred stock converted to common stock on a one for one basis.
The Company operates on a fiscal year ending June 30. In this Quarterly Report, the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013 is referred to as “fiscal 2013” and the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012 is referred to as “fiscal 2012.”
Basis of Presentation — The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) related to interim financial statements based on applicable Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules and regulations. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. This information reflects all adjustments, which are, in the opinion of the Company, of a normal and recurring nature and necessary to state fairly the statements of financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the dates and periods presented. The June 30, 2012 balance sheet was derived from the audited financial statements as of that date. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.
These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K, as filed on September 28, 2012 with the SEC (the “Annual Report”). The results of operations for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any future periods.
NOTE 2—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in its audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2012 included in the Annual Report.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
The Company does not believe there have been any recent accounting pronouncements that would have a significant impact on the Company’s financial statements.
NOTE 3—FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
Pursuant to the accounting guidance for fair value measurements and its subsequent updates, fair value is defined as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. The accounting guidance establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy that requires the Company to use observable market data, when available, and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value. The fair value hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used in measuring fair value as follows:
Level 1 —observable inputs which include quoted prices in active markets for identical assets of liabilities.
Level 2 —inputs which include observable inputs other than Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the asset or liability.

6


Level 3 —inputs which include unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the underlying asset or liability. Level 3 assets and liabilities include those whose fair value measurements are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar valuation techniques, as well as significant management judgment or estimation.
The Company’s financial assets at March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2012 included money market funds which were valued based on quoted prices in active markets for substantially similar assets and, therefore, were Level 1 instruments. Additionally, at March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2012 the Company had debt associated with its Loan and Security Agreement with East West Bank (See Note 8). The fair value of the Company’s debt was estimated based on the current rates offered to the Company for debt with similar terms and remaining maturities and were therefore Level 2 instruments.
As of March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2012 , the fair value hierarchy for the Company’s financial assets and financial liabilities was as follows (in thousands):

NOTE 7—ACCRUED WARRANTY
The Company offers warranties on certain products, generally for a period of one year, and records a liability for the estimated future costs associated with potential warranty claims. The warranty costs are reflected in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations within cost of revenues. The warranties are typically in effect for 12 months from the distributor’s purchase date of the product. The Company’s estimate of future warranty costs is largely based on historical experience factors including product failure rates, material usage, and service delivery cost incurred in correcting product failures. In certain circumstances, the Company may have recourse from its contract manufacturers for replacement cost of defective products, which it also factors into its warranty liability assessment.

Warranty obligations, included in other current liabilities, were as follows (in thousands):

NOTE 8—DEBT
In July 2011, the Company repurchased an aggregate of 12,041,700 shares of the Company’s Series A convertible preferred stock from entities affiliated with Summit Partners, L.P., one of the Company’s major stockholders, at a price of $8.97 per share for an aggregate consideration of $108.0 million . Of the aggregate purchase price, $40.0 million was paid in cash at the time of closing and the balance of the shares were paid for through the issuance of convertible subordinated promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $68.0 million . On September 15, 2011, $34.0 million was paid against the notes and was financed through the Company's EWB Loan Agreement (as further described below) reducing the aggregate principal amount outstanding to $34.0 million . The remainder of the notes were retired in October 2011 with the proceeds of the Company’s initial public offering and existing cash balances. The interest rate on the notes started at 5%  per annum and increased by two percentage points every three months until it would have reached 9% in January 2012. The notes were prepayable without penalty prior to April 21, 2012, and were required to be paid in the event of the Company’s initial public offering or third party financing prior to April 21, 2012. The notes matured on July 21, 2021. The unpaid principal on the notes was convertible into shares of Series A preferred stock at $8.97 per share at any point after July 21, 2012. The difference between the repurchase price and the carrying value of the repurchased preferred stock on June 30, 2011 was $59.0 million . The difference was debited to available retained earnings with the remaining amount debited to additional paid-in capital and reduced the net income attributable to common stock shareholders resulting in a reduction of basic and diluted net income per share.
On September 15, 2011, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with East West Bank, (the “EWB Loan Agreement”), which was replaced by the Loan Agreement as discussed below. The credit facilities available under the EWB Loan Agreement consist of a $35.0 million term loan facility and a $5.0 million revolving line of credit facility. The term loan matures on September 15, 2016 with principal and interest to be repaid in 60 monthly installments. The Company used $34.0 million of the term loan to repay a portion of the outstanding convertible subordinated promissory notes held by entities affiliated with Summit Partners, L.P leaving $1.0 million available for borrowing under the term loan facility.
On August 7, 2012, the Company entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with U.S. Bank, as syndication agent, and East West Bank, as administrative agent for the lenders party to the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement replaced the EWB Loan Agreement discussed above. The Loan Agreement provides for (i) a $50.0 million

revolving credit facility, with a $5.0 million sublimit for the issuance of letters of credit and a $5.0 million sublimit for the making of swingline loan advances (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), and (ii) a $50.0 million term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility”). The Company may request borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility until August 7, 2015. On August 7, 2012, the Company borrowed $20.8 million under the Term Loan Facility, and no borrowings remain available for borrowing thereunder. On November 21, 2012, the Company borrowed $10.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. On December 20, 2012, the Company borrowed an additional $20.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility, and $20.0 million remains available for borrowing thereunder.

The loans bear interest, at the Company’s option, at the base rate plus a spread of 1.25% to 1.75% or an adjusted LIBOR rate (at the Company’s election, for a period of 30 , 60 , or 90 days) plus a spread of 2.25% to 2.75% , in each case with such spread being determined based on the debt service coverage ratio for its most recently ended fiscal quarter. The base rate is the highest of (i) East West Bank’s prime rate, (ii) the federal funds rate plus a margin equal to 0.50% , or (iii) the LIBOR rate plus a margin equal to 1.00% . The Company is also obligated to pay other customary closing fees, arrangement fees, administration fees, commitment fees and letter of credit fees for a credit facility of this size and type.
Interest is due and payable monthly in arrears in the case of loans bearing interest at the base rate and at the end of an interest period in the case of loans bearing interest at the adjusted LIBOR rate. Principal payments under the Term Loan Facility will be made in quarterly installments on the first day of each calendar quarter, and each such quarterly installment shall be equal to $1.25 million through July 1, 2014, then equal to $1.875 million from October 1, 2014 through July 1 2015, and then equal to $2.5 million from October 1, 2015 through July 1, 2017, with the remaining outstanding principal balance and all accrued and unpaid interest due on August 7, 2017. All outstanding loans under the Revolving Credit Facility, together with all accrued and unpaid interest, are due on August 7, 2015.
The Company may prepay the loans, in whole or in part, at any time without premium or penalty, subject to certain conditions including minimum amounts and reimbursement of certain costs in the case of prepayments of LIBOR loans. In addition, the Company is required to prepay the loan under the Term Loan Facility with (i) the proceeds from certain financing transactions or asset sales (subject, in the case of asset sales, to reinvestment rights) and (ii) 25.0% of the Company’s excess cash flow in the U.S., as determined after each fiscal year and in accordance with the Loan Agreement, provided that the Company shall not be required to prepay the loan out of its excess cash flow if its leverage ratio is greater than 1.50 : 1.00 on the last day of such fiscal year.
All of the obligations of the Company under the Loan Agreement are collateralized by substantially all of the Company’s assets, including all of the capital stock of the Company’s future domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the capital stock of the Company’s existing and future foreign subsidiaries, but excluding the Company’s intellectual property, which is subject to a negative pledge agreement. All of the Company’s future domestic subsidiaries are required to guaranty the obligations under the Loan Agreement. Such guarantees by future subsidiaries will be collateralized by substantially all of the property of such subsidiaries, excluding intellectual property.
The Loan Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including covenants that limit or restrict the Company and its subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, incur indebtedness, grant liens, merge or consolidate, dispose of assets, pay dividends or make distributions, make investments, make acquisitions, prepay certain indebtedness, change the nature of its business, enter into certain transactions with affiliates, enter into restrictive agreements, and make capital expenditures, in each case subject to customary exceptions for a credit facility of this size and type. The Company is also required to maintain a minimum debt service coverage ratio, a maximum leverage ratio, and a minimum liquidity ratio. As of March 31, 2013 , the Company was in compliance with all affirmative and negative covenants, debt service coverage ratio, leverage ratio and liquidity ratio requirements.
The Loan Agreement includes customary events of default that, include among other things, defaults for the failure to timely pay principal, interest, or other amounts due, defaults due to the inaccuracy of representations and warranties, covenant defaults, a cross default to material indebtedness, bankruptcy and insolvency defaults, material judgment defaults, defaults due to the unenforceability of a guaranty, and defaults due to circumstances that have or could reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, operations or financial condition, its ability to pay or perform under the Loan Agreement, or on the lenders' security interests. The occurrence of an event of default could result in the acceleration of the obligations under the Loan Agreement. During the existence of an event of default, interest on the obligations under the Loan Agreement could be increased by 2.00% above the otherwise applicable interest rate.
During the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 , the Company made aggregate payments of $1.3 million and $3.1 million , respectively, against the loan balance. As of March 31, 2013 , the Company has classified $5.0 million and $72.4 million in short-term and long-term debt, respectively, on its consolidated balance sheet related to the Loan Agreement.

NOTE 9—COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Operating Leases
Certain facilities and equipment are leased under noncancelable operating leases. The Company generally pays taxes, insurance and maintenance costs on leased facilities and equipment.

Purchase Commitments
The Company subcontracts with other companies to manufacture its products. During the normal course of business, the Company’s contract manufacturers procure components based upon orders placed by the Company. If the Company cancels all or part of the orders, it may still be liable to the contract manufacturers for the cost of the components purchased by them to manufacture the Company’s products. The Company periodically reviews the potential liability and to date no significant accruals have been recorded. The Company’s consolidated financial position and results of operations could be negatively impacted if it were required to compensate the contract manufacturers for any liabilities incurred.
Indemnification Obligations
The Company enters into standard indemnification agreements with many of its business partners in the ordinary course of business. These agreements include provisions for indemnifying the business partner against any claim brought by a third party to the extent any such claim alleges that a Ubiquiti product infringes a patent, copyright or trademark, or violates any other proprietary rights of that third party. The maximum potential amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is not estimable and the Company has not incurred any material costs to defend lawsuits or settle claims related to these indemnification agreements to date.
Legal Matters
The Company may be involved, from time to time, in a variety of claims, lawsuits, investigations, and proceedings relating to contractual disputes, intellectual property rights, employment matters, regulatory compliance matters and other litigation matters relating to various claims that arise in the normal course of business. The Company determines whether an estimated loss from a contingency should be accrued by assessing whether a loss is deemed probable and can be reasonably estimated. The Company assesses its potential liability by analyzing specific litigation and regulatory matters using available information. The Company develops its views on estimated losses in consultation with inside and outside counsel, which involves a subjective analysis of potential results and outcomes, assuming various combinations of appropriate litigation and settlement strategies. Taking all of the above factors into account, the Company records an amount where it is probable that the Company will incur a loss and where that loss can be reasonably estimated. However, the Company’s estimates may be incorrect and the Company could ultimately incur more or less than the amounts initially recorded. Litigation can be costly, diverting management’s attention and could, upon resolution, have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition, and cash flows.

11


Export Compliance Matters
In January 2011, the U.S. Commerce Department, Bureau of Industry and Security’s (“BIS”) Office of Export Enforcement (“OEE”) contacted the Company to request that the Company provide information related to its relationship with a logistics company in the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”) and with a company in Iran, as well as information on the export classification of its products. As a result of this inquiry the Company, assisted by outside counsel, conducted a review of the Company's export transactions from 2008 through March 2011 to not only gather information responsive to the OEE's request but also to review the Company's overall compliance with export control and sanctions laws. The Company believes its products have been sold into Iran by third parties. The Company does not believe that it directly sold, exported or shipped its products into Iran or any other country subject to a U.S. embargo. However, until early 2010, the Company did not prohibit its distributors from selling its products into Iran or any other country subject to a U.S. embargo. In the course of this review the Company identified that two distributors may have sold the Company's products into Iran. The Company's review also found that while it had obtained required Commodity Classification Rulings for its products in June 2010 and November 2010, the Company did not advise its shipping personnel to change the export authorizations used on its shipping documents until February 2011. During the course of the Company's export control review, the Company also determined that it had failed to maintain adequate records for the five year period required by the EAR and the sanctions regulations due to its lack of infrastructure and because it was prior to its transition to its current system of record, NetSuite.

In May 2011, the Company filed a self-disclosure statement with the BIS and OEE. In June 2011, the Company filed a self-disclosure statement with the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”) regarding the compliance issues noted above. The disclosures address the above described findings and the remedial actions the Company had taken to date. However, the findings also indicate that both distributors continued to sell, directly or indirectly, the Company’s products into Iran during the period from February 2010 through March 2011 and that the Company received various communications from them indicating that they were continuing to do so. Since January 2011, the Company has cooperated with OEE and, prior to its disclosure filing, the Company informally shared with the OEE the substance of its findings with respect to both distributors. From May 2011 to August 2011, the Company provided additional information regarding its review and its findings to OEE to facilitate its investigation and OEE advised the Company in August 2011 that it had completed its investigation of the Company. In August 2011, the Company received a warning letter from OEE stating that OEE had not referred the findings of the Company’s review for criminal or administrative prosecution and closed the investigation of the Company without penalty.
OFAC is still reviewing the Company’s voluntary disclosure. In the Company’s submission, the Company provided OFAC with an explanation of the activities that led to the sales of its products in Iran and the failure to comply with the Export Administration Regulations (the “EAR”) and OFAC sanctions. Although the Company’s OFAC and OEE voluntary disclosures covered similar sets of facts, which led the OEE to resolve the case with the issuance of a warning letter, OFAC may conclude that the Company’s actions resulted in violations of U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws and warrant the imposition of penalties that could include fines, termination of the Company’s ability to export its products, and/or referral for criminal prosecution. The penalties may be imposed against the Company and/or its management. The maximum civil monetary penalty for the violations is up to $250,000 or twice the value of the transaction, whichever is greater, per violation. Any such fines or restrictions may be material to the Company’s financial results in the period in which they are imposed. The Company cannot predict when OFAC will complete its review or decide upon the imposition of possible penalties.

While the Company has taken actions designed to ensure that export classification information is distributed to the appropriate personnel in a timely manner and has adopted policies and procedures to promote its compliance with applicable export laws and regulations, including obtaining written distribution agreements with substantially all of its distributors that contain covenants requiring compliance with U.S. export control and economic sanctions law; notifying all of its distributors of their obligations and obtaining updated distribution agreements from distributors that accounted for approximately 99% of its revenue in fiscal 2012. However the Company cannot be sure such actions will be effective. Additionally, the Company's failure to amend all its distribution agreements and to implement more robust compliance controls immediately after the discovery of Iran-related sales activity in early 2010 may be aggravating factors that could impact the imposition of penalties imposed on the Company or its management. Based on the facts known to the Company to date, the Company recorded an expense of $1.6 million for this export compliance matter in fiscal 2010, which represents management’s estimated exposure for fines in accordance with applicable accounting literature. This amount was calculated from information discovered through the Company’s internal review and this loss is deemed to be probable and reasonably estimable. However, the Company also believes that it is reasonably possible that the loss may be higher, but the Company cannot reasonably estimate the range of any further potential losses. Should additional facts be discovered in the future and/or should actual fines or other penalties substantially differ from the Company’s estimates, its business, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations would be materially negatively impacted.

Shareholder Class Action Lawsuits
Beginning on September 7, 2012, two shareholder class action complaints were filed against the Company, certain of its officers and directors and the underwriters of the Company's initial public offering in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. On January 30, 2013, the plaintiffs filed an Amended Consolidated Complaint, which alleges claims under the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5 on behalf of a purported class of those who purchased the Company's common stock between October 14, 2011 and August 9, 2012 and/or acquired the Company's stock pursuant to or traceable to the registration statement for the initial public offering. The Amended Consolidated Complaint alleges that the defendants violated the federal securities laws by issuing false or misleading statements regarding the sale of counterfeit Company products.  The consolidated complaint seeks, among other things, damages and interest, rescission, and attorneys' fees and costs. On March 26, 2013, the Company filed a motion to dismiss the complaint.  On April 30, 2013, the plaintiffs filed an opposition to the Company's motion to dismiss.
The Company believes that the allegations in the consolidated complaint are without merit and intend to vigorously contest the litigation. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in its defense. Because the case is at a very early stage, the Company cannot currently estimate the loss or the range of possible losses we may experience in connection with this litigation.
NOTE 10—PREFERRED STOCK
Preferred Stock
In July 2011, the Company repurchased an aggregate of 12,041,700 shares of the Company’s Series A convertible preferred stock from entities affiliated with Summit Partners, L.P., one of the Company’s major stockholders, at a price of $8.97 per share for an aggregate consideration of $108.0 million . Of the aggregate purchase price, $40.0 million was paid in cash at the time of closing and the balance of the shares were paid for through the issuance of convertible subordinated promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $68.0 million . The $68.0 million was paid down primarily using proceeds from the EWB Loan Agreement and the remaining balance was subsequently paid down by funds raised upon the completion of the Company’s initial public offering on October 19, 2011 and the Company’s existing cash balances as discussed in Note 8.

The intrinsic value of RSUs vested in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 was $622,000 and $25,000 , respectively. The total intrinsic value of all outstanding RSUs was $9.7 million as of March 31, 2013 .
As of March 31, 2013 , there was unrecognized compensation costs related to RSUs of $8.5 million which the Company expects to recognize over a weighted average period of 3.9 years.
NOTE 13—INCOME TAXES
As of March 31, 2013 , the Company had approximately $10.4 million of unrecognized tax benefits, substantially all of which would, if recognized, affect its tax expense. The Company has elected to include interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions as a component of tax expense. At March 31, 2013 , an insignificant amount of interest and penalties are included in long-term income tax payable. The Company recorded an increase of its unrecognized tax benefits of $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 . The Company does not expect any significant increases or decreases to its unrecognized tax benefits in the next twelve months.
The Company recorded a tax provision of $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 . The Company’s estimated 2012 effective tax rate differs from the U.S. statutory rate primarily due to profits earned in jurisdictions where the tax rate is lower than the U.S. tax rate.
The Company files U.S. federal income tax returns as well as income tax returns in various states and foreign jurisdictions. The Company’s tax years from 2009 and onwards could be subject to examinations by tax authorities.
On January 2, 2013, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 ("the Act") was signed into law. One of the provisions of the Act provides a retroactive extension of the research and experimentation tax credit ("R&D credit") through December 31, 2013, which had expired on December 31, 2011. The Company has recognized a tax benefit of $539,000 during the third quarter of fiscal 2013 as a result of the retroactive extension of the R&D credit.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with the financial statements and related notes that are included elsewhere in this quarterly report. In addition to historical consolidated financial information, the following discussion contains forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates and beliefs. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include those discussed below and elsewhere in this quarterly report, particularly in Part II, Item 1, Legal Proceedings and 1A, Risk Factors, in this report.
Overview
Ubiquiti Networks is a product driven technology company that designs end-to-end networking solutions for service providers and enterprises. Our technology platforms focus on delivering highly-advanced and efficiently deployable solutions that appeal to a global customer base in underserved and underpenetrated markets. Our differentiated business model, focused around the Ubiquiti Community, has enabled us to break down traditional barriers, such as high product and network deployment costs, and offer solutions with disruptive price-performance characteristics. This disruptive business model, combined with our innovative proprietary technologies, has resulted in an attractive alternative to traditional relationship based, high-cost providers, allowing us to advance the market adoption of platforms for ubiquitous connectivity.
We offer a broad and expanding portfolio of networking products and solutions for service providers and enterprises. Our service provider product platforms provide carrier-class network infrastructure for fixed wireless broadband, wireless backhaul systems and routing. Our enterprise product platforms provide wireless LAN infrastructure, video surveillance products, and machine-to-machine communication components. We believe that our products are highly differentiated due to the combination of our significant software intellectual property, protocol innovation, firmware expertise and hardware design capabilities. These products are integrated and flexible, which substantially reduces the cost and complexity of installation, maintenance and management. Our products and solutions meet the demanding performance requirements of video, voice and data applications at prices that are a fraction of those of our competitors' solutions.
 
As a core part of our strategy, we have developed a disruptive business model for marketing and selling high volumes of carrier and enterprise class communications platforms. Our business model is driven by a large, growing and engaged community of network operators, distributors, value added resellers (“VARs”), systems integrators and corporate IT professionals, which we refer to as the Ubiquiti Community. The Ubiquiti Community is a critical element of our business strategy as it enables us to drive:  

Rapid customer and community driven product development. We have an active, loyal end-user community built from our customers that we believe is a sustainable competitive advantage. Our solutions benefit from the active engagement between the Ubiquiti Community and our development engineers throughout the product development cycle, which eliminates long and expensive multistep internal processes and results in rapid introduction and adoption of optimally designed products. This approach significantly reduces our development costs and the time to market for our products.

Scalable sales and marketing model. We do not currently have, nor do we plan to hire, a direct sales force, but instead utilize the Ubiquiti Community to drive market awareness and demand for our products and solutions. This community-propagated viral marketing enables us to reach underserved and underpenetrated markets far more efficiently and cost effectively than is possible through traditional sales models. Leveraging the information transparency of the Internet allows customers to research and evaluate our solutions with the Ubiquiti Community and via third-party web sites. This allows us to operate a scalable sales and marketing model that is designed to create awareness of our brand and products, engage significant numbers of potential customers and create a substantial volume of high quality sales leads at relatively little cost.

Self-sustaining product support.  The engaged members of the Ubiquiti Community have enabled us to foster a large, cost efficient, highly scalable and, we believe, self-sustaining mechanism for rapid product support and dissemination of information.
Our revenues decreased 9% to $83.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 from $91.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 . Our revenues decreased 15% to $219.6 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 from $258.6 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 . We believe the overall decrease in revenues during both the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 was primarily driven by lost sales due to the proliferation of counterfeit versions of our products, which has also created customer uncertainty regarding the authenticity of their potential purchases. We believe these factors contributed to a buildup in channel inventory with our distributors, further impacting our revenues. We had net income of $20.7 million and $27.9 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively. We had net income of

$51.6 million and $74.1 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively. The declines in net income in both the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the same periods in the prior year were primarily due to the decline in revenues and increased operating expenses.
Key Components of Our Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Revenues
Our revenues are derived principally from the sale of networking hardware and management tools. In addition, while we do not sell maintenance and support separately, because we have historically included it free of charge in many of our arrangements, we attribute a portion of our systems revenues to this implied post-contract customer support (“PCS”).
We classify our revenues into three product categories: systems, embedded radios and antennas/other.
Systems consists of three product categories:
Our proprietary airMAX platform products for network operators and service providers;
Our new platform products which include significant platforms introduced in late fiscal 2011 and during 2012 which includes the UniFi, airVision and airFiber, mFi and EdgeMAX platforms; and
Other 802.11 standard products including base stations, radios, backhaul equipment and Customer Premise Equipment ("CPE").
Embedded radios consist of more than 25 radio products primarily for OEMs, including both point to point and point to multipoint radios in the 2.0 to 6.0GHz spectrum, that are offered with a variety of features.
Antennas/other consist of antenna products in the 2.0 to 6.0GHz spectrum, as well as miscellaneous products such as mounting brackets, cables and power over Ethernet adapters. These products include both high performance sector and directional antennas. This category also includes our allocation of revenues to PCS.
We sell substantially all of our products through a limited number of distributors and other channel partners, such as resellers and OEMs. Sales to distributors accounted for 98% and 99% of our revenues in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively. Sales to distributors accounted for 97% and 98% of our revenues in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively. Other channel partners, such as resellers and OEMs, largely accounted for the balance of our revenues. We sell our products without any right of return.
Cost of Revenues
Our cost of revenues is comprised primarily of the costs of procuring finished goods from our contract manufacturers and chipsets that we consign to certain of our contract manufacturers. In addition, cost of revenues includes tooling, labor and other costs associated with engineering, testing and quality assurance, warranty costs, stock-based compensation, logistics related fees and excess and obsolete inventory.
We outsource our manufacturing and order fulfillment and utilize contract manufacturers located primarily in China and, to a lesser extent, Taiwan. We also evaluate and utilize other vendors for various portions of our supply chain from time to time. Our manufacturing organization consists of employees and consultants engaged in the management of our contract manufacturers, new product introduction activities, logistical support and engineering.
Gross Profit
Our gross profit has been, and may in the future be, influenced by several factors including changes in product mix, target end markets for our products, pricing due to competitive pressure, production costs, foreign exchange rates and global demand for electronic components. Although we procure and sell our products in U.S. dollars, our contract manufacturers incur many costs, including labor costs, in other currencies. To the extent that the exchange rates move unfavorably for our contract manufacturers, they may try to pass these additional costs on to us, which could have a material impact on our future average selling prices and unit costs.
Operating Expenses
We classify our operating expenses as research and development and sales, general and administrative expenses.
Research and development expenses consist primarily of salary and benefit expenses, including stock-based compensation, for employees and costs for contractors engaged in research, design and development activities, as well as costs for prototypes, facilities and travel. Over time, we expect our research and development costs to increase as we continue making significant investments in developing new products and developing new versions of our existing products.
Sales, general and administrative expenses include salary and benefit expenses, including stock-based compensation, for employees and costs for contractors engaged in sales, marketing and general and administrative activities, as well

as the costs of outside legal expenses, trade shows, marketing programs, promotional materials, bad debt expense, professional services, facilities, general liability insurance and travel. As our product portfolio and targeted markets expand, we may need to employ different sales models, such as building a direct sales force. These sales models would likely increase our costs. Over time, we expect our sales, general and administrative expenses to increase in absolute dollars due to continued growth in headcount, expansion of our registration and defense of trademarks and patents efforts and to support our business and operations as a public company.
Deferred Revenues and Costs
In the event that collectability of a receivable from products we have shipped is not probable, we classify those amounts as deferred revenues on our balance sheet until such time as we receive payment of the accounts receivable. We classify the cost of products associated with these deferred revenues as deferred costs of revenues. At March 31, 2013 , $984,000 of revenue was deferred for transactions where we lacked evidence that collectability of the receivables recorded was reasonably probable. The related deferred cost of revenues balance was $541,000 as of March 31, 2013 . At June 30, 2012 , we did not have any revenue deferred for transactions where we lacked evidence that collectability of the receivables recorded was reasonably probable.
Also included in our deferred revenues is a portion related to PCS obligations that we estimate we will perform in the future. As of March 31, 2013 and June 30, 2012 , we had deferred revenues of $857,000 and $805,000 respectively, related to these obligations.
Critical Accounting Policies
We prepare our condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. In other cases, management’s judgment is required in selecting among available alternative accounting standards that provide for different accounting treatment for similar transactions. The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements also requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts we report as assets, liabilities, revenues, costs and expenses and affect the related disclosures. We base our estimates on historical experience and other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. In many instances, we could reasonably use different accounting estimates, and in some instances changes in the accounting estimates are reasonably likely to occur from period to period. Accordingly, our actual results could differ significantly from the estimates made by our management. To the extent that there are differences between our estimates and actual results, our future financial statement presentation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected. Our critical accounting policies are discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, as filed on September 28, 2012 with the SEC, or the Annual Report, and there have been no material changes.

Revenues
Revenues decreased $8.5 million , or 9% , from $91.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $83.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Revenues decreased $39.1 million , or 15% , from $258.6 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $219.6 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . We believe the overall decrease in revenues during the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 was primarily driven by lost sales due to the proliferation of counterfeit versions of our products, which also created customer uncertainty regarding the authenticity of their potential purchases. We believe these factors contributed to a buildup in channel inventory with our distributors, further impacting our revenues. This has had the most significant impact on our airMAX platform which decreased $6.4 million and $28.4 million , respectively, in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same periods in the prior year.
In the three months ended March 31, 2013 , revenues from Customer A represented 15% of our revenues. In the three months ended March 31, 2012 , revenues from Customer A and Customer B represented 20% and 10% of our revenues, respectively. In the nine months ended March 31, 2013 , revenues from Customer A represented 13% of our revenues. In the nine months ended March 31, 2012 , revenues from Customer A and Customer C represented 19% and 10% of our revenues, respectively.

Systems revenues decreased $10.7 million , or 13% , from $82.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $71.5 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Systems revenues decreased $34.5 million , or 15% , from $223.0 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $188.4 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . As noted above, we believe the decrease in systems revenues was primarily driven by lost sales due to the proliferation of counterfeit versions of our products, in particular our airMAX product line. The decrease in our airMAX product line was partially offset by increased sales in our new platforms category, which includes platforms introduced since late fiscal 2011. Our new platforms contributed $11.8 million and $9.9 million of revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively, and $39.4 million and $16.9 million of revenue during the nine months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively. Our other systems revenue decreased $6.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012 due to further adoption of our airMax solutions. Our other systems revenue decreased $28.6 million during the nine months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the nine months ended March 31, 2012 due primarily to our December 2011 quarter including a large order to a single direct customer and further adoption of our airMax solutions in 2013. We anticipate that our other systems products will decline in future periods as sales of these products are outpaced by airMax and new platform products.
Embedded radio revenues decreased $511,000 , or 23% , from $2.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $1.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 , and decreased $3.1 million , or 38% , from $8.0 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $5.0 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . We anticipate that embedded radio products will decline as a percentage of revenues in future periods as sales of these legacy products are outpaced by sales of systems products.
Antennas/other revenues increased $2.7 million , or 38% from $7.2 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $10.0 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Antennas/other revenues decreased $1.5 million , or 5% from $27.7 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $26.2 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . The increase in antennas/other revenues during the three months ended March 31, 2013 was due primarily to continued expansion of core infrastructure build-outs in our wireless markets. The decline in antennas/other revenues during nine months ended March 31, 2013 was primarily due to the decreased sales of our systems platforms, which negatively impacted the demand for associated antennas. Other revenues also include revenues that are attributable to PCS. We anticipate that antenna/other revenues will decline as a percentage of total revenues due to more rapid growth of systems revenues.

Revenues by Geography

We generally forward products directly from our manufacturers to our customers via logistics distribution hubs in Asia.  Beginning in the quarter ended December 31, 2012, our products were predominantly routed through a third party logistics provider in China and prior to the quarter ended December 31, 2012, our products were predominantly delivered to our customers through distribution hubs in Hong Kong.  Our logistics provider, in turn, ships to other locations throughout the world. We have determined the geographical distribution of our product revenues based on our customers' ship-to destinations. A majority of our sales are to distributors who in turn sell to resellers or directly to end customers. For the three months ended March 31, 2013 , revenues in North America increased primarily due to the three months ended March 31, 2012 being impacted by our customers' ordering patterns as we had introduced our U.S.-specific products. We believe the decline in revenues in the South America and Europe, Middle East and Africa regions in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and the decline in revenue in all regions during the nine months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the same periods in the prior year was primarily driven by the proliferation of counterfeit versions of our products, which has also created customer uncertainty regarding the authenticity of their potential purchases. Revenues in the Asia Pacific region tend to be volatile given their low levels.

Revenue for the United States was $19.7 million and $14.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively. Revenue for the United States was $50.5 million and $60.0 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 , respectively.
Cost of Revenues and Gross Profit
Cost of revenues decreased $4.3 million , or 8% , from $52.0 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $47.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Cost of revenues decreased $20.1 million , or 13% , from $148.7 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $128.6 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . The decreases in cost of revenues in both the three and nine months ended March 31, 2013 was primarily due to decreased revenues and to a lesser extent, changes in product mix, partially offset by increased warranty costs of approximately $1.0 million incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2013 related to the recall of our Rocket Titanium products due to an identified manufacturing issue which was subsequently rectified.
Gross profit remained flat at 43% in the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012 . Gross profit decreased from 43% in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to 41% in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . The decrease in gross profit in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 reflects increases in variable operating costs and changes in product mix.
Operating Expenses
Research and Development
Research and development expenses increased $1.1 million , or 23% , from $4.6 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $5.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . As a percentage of revenues, research and development expenses increased from 5% in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to 7% in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Research and development expenses increased $3.8 million , or 32% , from $11.7 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $15.4 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . As a percentage of revenues, research and development expenses increased from 5% in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to 7% in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . The increase in research and development expenses in absolute dollars in both periods was due to increases in headcount as we broadened our research and development activities to new product areas. As a percentage of revenues, research and development expenses increased in both periods primarily due to our overall decrease in revenues. Over time, we expect our research and development costs to increase in absolute dollars as we continue making significant investments in developing new products and developing new versions of our existing products.

Sales, General and Administrative
Sales, general and administrative expenses increased $3.8 million , or 153% , from $2.5 million in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $6.3 million in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . As a percentage of revenues, sales, general and administrative expenses increased from 3% in the three months ended March 31, 2012 to 8% in the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Sales, general and administrative expenses increased $9.1 million , or 129% , from $7.1 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $16.1 million in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . As a percentage of revenues, sales, general and administrative expenses increased from 3% in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to 7% in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . Sales, general and administrative expenses increased in both periods due largely to increased legal expenses associated with our anti-counterfeiting litigation, increased marketing and tradeshow activity and increases in our bad debt allowance. As a percentage of revenues sales, general and administrative expenses increased in both periods primarily due to our overall revenue decrease in revenues and increased legal expenses associated with our anti-counterfeiting litigation. Over time, we expect our sales, general and administrative expenses to increase in absolute dollars due to continued efforts to protect our intellectual property and growth in headcount to support our business and operations.
Interest Expense and Other, Net
Interest expense and other, net was $287,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 , representing an increase of $97,000 from $190,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 . Interest expense and other, net was $570,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 , representing a decrease of $566,000 from $1.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 . The increase in interest expense and other, net during the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to additional interest expense resulting from our borrowings from East West Bank during the three months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in nine months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the same period in the prior year was primarily due to additional interest expense on our convertible subordinated promissory notes issued as part of the repurchase of Series A convertible preferred stock from entities affiliated with Summit Partners, L.P. in July 2011. The convertible subordinated promissory notes were repaid in full in October 2011.
Provision for Income Taxes
Our provision for income taxes decreased $1.9 million , or 43% , from $4.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 to $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 . Our provision for income taxes decreased $8.8 million , or 55% , from $16.0 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012 to $7.2 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 . Our effective tax rate decreased to 11% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to 14% the three months ended March 31, 2012 . Our effective tax rate decreased to 12% for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to 18% the nine months ended March 31, 2012 . The decrease in the effective tax rates during both periods was primarily due to a larger percentage of our overall profitability occurring in foreign jurisdictions with lower income tax rates. On January 2, 2013, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 ("the Act") was signed into law. One of the provisions of the Act provides a retroactive extension of the research and experimentation tax credit ("R&D credit") through December 31, 2013, which had expired on December 31, 2011. We recognized a tax benefit of $539,000 during the third quarter of fiscal 2013 as a result of the retroactive extension of the R&D credit.

Cash Flows from Operating Activities
Net cash provided by operating activities in the nine months ended March 31, 2013 of $85.7 million consisted primarily of net income of $51.6 million and net changes in operating assets and liabilities that resulted in net cash inflows of $28.1 million . These changes consisted primarily of a $35.6 million decrease in accounts receivable due to decreased revenues and improved cash collections, a $12.7 million increase in inventory due to increased inventory on hand as a result of a transition to a third-party logistics provider during December 2012, a $3.7 million increase in taxes payable due the timing of federal tax payments, a $2.5 million increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities due to the timing of payments with our vendors and a $1.5 million increase in prepaid expenses and other current assets due to an increase in overall business activity. Additionally, our net income included non-cash adjustments due to stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, increases to our provision for doubtful accounts and write-downs for inventory obsolescence and an excess tax benefit from stock-based awards. The net of these non-cash adjustments resulted in an increase of our net cash provided by operating activities of $5.9 million .

Net cash provided by operating activities in the nine months ended March 31, 2012 of $51.7 million consisted primarily of net income of $74.1 million partially offset by changes in operating assets and liabilities. These changes consisted primarily of a $29.4 million increase in accounts receivable due to our overall revenue growth, a $12.4 million increase in taxes payable, a $4.8 million decrease in prepaid expenses and other current assets, a $4.0 million increase in inventories, a $1.9 million increase in accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and an increase of $700,000 in deferred revenues and deferred cost of revenues. Additionally, our net income included non-cash adjustments due to stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, adjustments to our provisions for doubtful accounts and inventory obsolescence and an excess tax benefit from stock-based awards. The net of these non-cash adjustments resulted in a reduction of our net cash provided by operating activities of $8.8 million .
Cash Flows from Investing Activities
Our investing activities consist solely of capital expenditures and purchases of intangible assets. Capital expenditures for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 were $3.3 million and $1.6 million , respectively. Additionally, we had cash outflows related to the purchase of intangible assets of $1.1 million during the nine months ended March 31, 2013 .
Cash Flows from Financing Activities
On August 7, 2012, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with U.S. Bank, as syndication agent, and East West Bank, as administrative agent for the lenders party to the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement replaced the EWB Loan Agreement discussed below. The Loan Agreement provides for (i) a $50.0 million revolving credit facility, with a $5.0 million sublimit for the issuance of letters of credit and a $5.0 million sublimit for the making of swingline loan advances (the “Revolving Credit Facility”), and (ii) a $50.0 million term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility”). We may request borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility until August 7, 2015. On August 7, 2012, we borrowed $20.8 million of term loans under the Term Loan Facility, and no borrowings remain available thereunder. On November 21, 2012, we borrowed $10.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. On December 20, 2012, we borrowed an additional $20.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility, and $20.0 million remains available for borrowing thereunder.

The Loan Agreement contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, including covenants that limit or restrict our and
our subsidiaries’ ability to, among other things, incur indebtedness, grant liens, merge or consolidate, dispose of assets, pay
dividends or make distributions, make investments, make acquisitions, prepay certain indebtedness, change the nature of our or
its business, enter into certain transactions with affiliates, enter into restrictive agreements, and make capital expenditures, in
each case subject to customary exceptions for a credit facility of this size and type. We are also required to maintain a
minimum debt service coverage ratio, a maximum leverage ratio, and a minimum liquidity ratio. As of March 31, 2013 , we
were in compliance with all affirmative and negative covenants, debt service coverage ratio, leverage ratio and minimum level
of liquidity requirements.
On August 9, 2012, we announced that our Board of Directors authorized us to repurchase up to $100.0 million of our common stock. The share repurchase program commenced August 13, 2012. During the nine months ended March 31, 2013 we repurchased 5,159,050 shares for a total cost of $54.4 million .

On December 14, 2012, we announced that our Board of Directors had authorized a special cash dividend of $0.18 per share for each share of common stock outstanding on December 24, 2012. The aggregate dividend payment of $15.7 million was paid on December 28, 2012 to stockholders of record on December 24, 2012.


24


In July 2011, we repurchased an aggregate of 12,041,700 shares of our Series A preferred stock from entities affiliated with Summit Partners, L.P., one of our major stockholders, at a price of $8.97 per share for an aggregate consideration of $108.0 million. Of the aggregate purchase price, $40.0 million was paid in cash at the time of closing and the balance of the shares were paid for through the issuance of convertible subordinated promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $68.0 million. On September 15, 2011, $34.0 million was paid against the notes reducing the aggregate principal amount outstanding to $34.0 million.
On September 15, 2011, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement with East West Bank, (the “EWB Loan Agreement”). The EWB Loan Agreement consisted of a $35.0 million term loan facility and a $5.0 million revolving line of credit facility. The term loan was scheduled to mature on September 15, 2016 with principal and interest to be repaid in 60 monthly installments. During the three months ended September 30, 2011, we used $34.0 million of the term loan to repay a portion of our outstanding convertible subordinated promissory notes held by entities affiliated with Summit Partners, L.P. The EWB Agreement was replaced by the Loan Agreement on August 7, 2012 as discussed above.
Liquidity
We believe our existing cash and cash equivalents, cash provided by operations and the availability of additional funds under our loan agreements will be sufficient to meet our working capital and capital expenditure needs for at least the next 12 months. Our future capital requirements may vary materially from those currently planned and will depend on many factors, including our rate of revenue growth, the timing and extent of spending to support development efforts, the timing of new product introductions, market acceptance of our products and overall economic conditions. As of March 31, 2013 , we held $170.2 million of our $181.7 million of cash and cash equivalents in accounts of our subsidiaries outside of the United States and we will incur significant tax liabilities if we decide to repatriate those amounts.
Commitments and Contingencies
In January 2011, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security’s Office of Export Enforcement (“OEE”) contacted us to request that we provide information related to our relationship with a logistics company in the United Arab Emirates (“UAE”) and with a company in Iran, as well as information on the export classification of our products. As a result of this inquiry we, assisted by outside counsel, conducted a review of our export transactions from 2008 through March 2011 to not only gather information responsive to the OEE’s request but also to review our overall compliance with export control and sanctions laws. We believe our products have been sold into Iran by third parties. We do not believe that we directly sold, exported or shipped our products into Iran or any other country subject to a U.S. embargo. However, until early 2010, we did not prohibit our distributors from selling our products into Iran or any other country subject to a U.S. embargo. In the course of this review we identified that two distributors may have sold Ubiquiti products into Iran. Our review also found that while we had obtained required Commodity Classification Rulings for our products in June 2010 and November 2010, we did not advise our shipping personnel to change the export authorizations used on our shipping documents until February 2011. During the course of our export control review, we also determined that we had failed to maintain adequate records for the five year period required by the EAR and the sanctions regulations due to our lack of infrastructure and because it was prior to our transition to our current system of record, NetSuite. See “ Risk Factors—We are subject to numerous U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws and a substantial majority of our sales are into countries outside of the United States. Although we did not intend to do so, we have violated certain of these laws in the past, and we cannot currently assess the nature and extent of any fines or other penalties, if any, that U.S. governmental agencies may impose against us or our employees for any such violations. Any fines, if materially different from our estimates, or other penalties, could have a material adverse effect on our business and financial results.
In May 2011, we filed a self-disclosure statement with the BIS and the OEE and, in June 2011 we filed a self-disclosure statement with the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”), regarding the compliance issues noted above. The disclosures address the above described findings and the remedial actions we have taken to date. However, the findings also indicate that both distributors continued to sell, directly or indirectly, our products into Iran during the period from February 2010 through March 2011 and that we received various communications from them indicating that they were continuing to do so. Since January 2011, we have cooperated with OEE and, prior to our disclosure filing, we informally shared with the OEE the substance of our findings with respect to both distributors. From May 2011 to August 2011, we provided additional information regarding our review and our findings to OEE to facilitate its investigation and OEE advised us in August 2011 that it had completed its investigation of us. In August 2011, we received a warning letter from OEE stating that OEE had not referred the findings of our review for criminal or administrative prosecution of us and closed the investigation of us without penalty.
OFAC is still reviewing our voluntary disclosure. In our submission, we have provided OFAC with an explanation of the activities that led to the sales of our products in Iran and the failure to comply with the EAR and OFAC sanctions. Although our

25


OFAC and OEE voluntary disclosures covered similar sets of facts, which led OEE to resolve the case with the issuance of a warning letter, OFAC may conclude that our actions resulted in violations of U.S. export control and economic sanctions laws and warrant the imposition of penalties that could include fines, termination of our ability to export our products and/or referral for criminal prosecution. The penalties may be imposed against us and/or our management. The maximum civil monetary penalty for the violations is up to $250,000 or twice the value of the transaction, whichever is greater, per violation. Any such fines or restrictions may be material to our financial results in the period in which they are imposed. Also, disclosure of our conduct and any fines or other action relating to this conduct could harm our reputation and have a material adverse effect on our business. We cannot predict when OFAC will complete its review or decide upon the imposition of possible penalties.

While we have taken actions designed to ensure that export classification information is distributed to the appropriate personnel in a timely manner and have adopted policies and procedures to promote our compliance with applicable export laws and regulations, including obtaining written distribution agreements with substantially all of our distributors that contain covenants requiring compliance with U.S. export control and economic sanctions law; notifying all of our distributors of their obligations and obtaining updated distribution agreements from distributors that account for over 99% of our revenue in fiscal 2012. However we cannot be sure such actions will be effective. Additionally, our failure to amend all our distribution agreements and to implement more robust compliance controls immediately after the discovery of Iran-related sales activity in early 2010 may be aggravating factors that could impact the imposition of penalties imposed on us or our management. Based on the facts known to us to date, we recorded an expense of $1.6 million for this export compliance matter in fiscal 2010, which represents management’s estimated exposure for fines in accordance with applicable accounting literature. This amount was calculated from information discovered through our internal review and we deem this loss to be probable and reasonably estimable. However, we believe that it is reasonably possible that the loss may be higher, but we cannot reasonably estimate the range of any further potential losses. Should additional facts be discovered in the future and/or should actual fines or other penalties substantially differ from our estimates, our business, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations would be materially negatively impacted.
Warranties and Indemnifications
Our products are generally accompanied by a 12 month warranty, which covers both parts and labor. Generally the distributor is responsible for the freight costs associated with warranty returns, and we absorb the freight costs of replacing items under warranty. In accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB’s”), Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”), 450-30, Loss Contingencies, we record an accrual when we believe it is estimable and probable based upon historical experience. We record a provision for estimated future warranty work in cost of goods sold upon recognition of revenues and we review the resulting accrual regularly and periodically adjust it to reflect changes in warranty estimates.
We may in the future enter into standard indemnification agreements with many of our distributors and OEMs, as well as certain other business partners in the ordinary course of business. These agreements may include provisions for indemnifying the distributor, OEM or other business partner against any claim brought by a third party to the extent any such claim alleges that a Ubiquiti product infringes a patent, copyright or trademark or violates any other proprietary rights of that third party. The maximum amount of potential future indemnification is unlimited. The maximum potential amount of future payments we could be required to make under these indemnification agreements is not estimable.
We have agreed to indemnify our directors, officers and certain other employees for certain events or occurrences, subject to certain limits, while such persons are or were serving at our request in such capacity. We may terminate the indemnification agreements with these persons upon the termination of their services with us but termination will not affect claims for indemnification related to events occurring prior to the effective date of termination. The maximum amount of potential future indemnification is unlimited. We have a director and officer insurance policy that limits our potential exposure. We believe the fair value of these indemnification agreements is minimal. We had not recorded any liabilities for these agreements as of March 31, 2013 or 2012 .
Based upon our historical experience and information known as of the date of this report, we do not believe it is likely that we will have significant liability for the above indemnities at March 31, 2013 .
Contractual Obligations and Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We lease our headquarters in San Jose, California and other locations worldwide under non-cancelable operating leases that expire at various dates through fiscal 2018.

In December 2011, we entered into an agreement to lease approximately 64,512 square feet of office and research and development space located in San Jose, California, which we use as our corporate headquarters. The lease term is from April 1,

26


2012, though July 31, 2017. The lease has been categorized as an operating lease, and the total estimated lease obligation is approximately $4.9 million.
On August 7, 2012, we entered into the Loan Agreement with U.S. Bank, as syndication agent, and East West Bank, as administrative agent for the lenders party to the Loan Agreement. The Loan Agreement provides for (i) a $50.0 million revolving credit facility, with a $5.0 million sublimit for the issuance of letters of credit and a $5.0 million sublimit for the making of swingline loan advances, and (ii) a $50.0 million Term Loan Facility. We may request borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility until August 7, 2015. On August 7, 2012, we borrowed $20.8 million of term loans under the Term Loan Facility bringing the total borrowed to $50.0 million, and no borrowings remain available thereunder. On November 21, 2012, we borrowed $10.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility. On December 20, 2012 we borrowed an additional $20.0 million under the Revolving Credit Facility, and $20.0 million remains available for borrowing thereunder.
