Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $8.9 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $9.0 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2008.

The Company uses a non-GAAP reconciliation of gross profit, profit before taxes, net income and earnings per share in the presentation of financial results in this press release. Management believes that this presentation may be more meaningful in analyzing our income generation, since amortization of intangibles from acquisitions, stock-based compensation, and non-cash tax expense are excluded from the non-GAAP earnings calculation. This presentation may be considered more indicative of our ongoing operational performance. The tables below present the differences between non-GAAP earnings and net income on an absolute and per-share basis. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP, and the non-financial measures as reported by Smith Micro Software may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies.
Based on current financial data and management's current plans and assumptions, Smith Micro is projecting that its revenues for fiscal year 2010 will be between $125 million to $135 million.
