Smith Micro Announces 2003 Third Quarter Results

Oct 23, 2003

Aliso Viejo, CA -- Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and service solutions for the wireless and Internet markets, today reported its third quarter 2003 results.

The company reported net revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2003, of $1.5 million, compared to $1.8 million recorded in the third quarter of 2002. The company's net loss of $472,000 in the third quarter of 2003 resulted in a net loss of $.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net income of $675,000 in the third quarter of 2002 or a net gain of $.04 per basic and diluted share after a non-recurring tax benefit.

"The WWAN and particularly the Wi-Fi market are still emerging markets," said William W. Smith, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. "We anticipated orders from some of our customers to arrive during the third quarter, but several unexpected delays occurred which were not the result of software difficulties but rather caused by the delays in the certification of third party hardware products."

"We also have been working very closely with Verizon Wireless to implement the new agreement we announced this quarter. We are working with them to have our software included with WWAN PC Cards; an event we believe will significantly increase our business with them. We remain hopeful that we can begin to see a transition to QuickLink® Mobile software with PC Cards during the fourth quarter."

"Several of our customers, the Wi-Fi Alliance and others have indicated that they believe that the wireless market is an area of growth. I believe that as the wireless market matures it will become more predictable. Revenue fluctuations unfortunately are a by-product of an early stage market." Smith concludes.

Total cash reserves improved to $4.3 million by the end of the third quarter of 2003 from $3.3 million at the end of the second quarter of 2003.
