EZchip Announces First Quarter 2015 Results; Provides Update On Status Of NPS Adoption

"As for the NPS-400, it is important to note that several Tier-1 service providers and data center operators, as well as Tier-1 networking vendors, have already selected the NPS-400 and at this time are waiting for the NPS-400 to sample in order to start their product designs, transitioning towards confirmed design wins. We hope to be able to report future design win traction shortly after the NPS-400 tapes out during the third quarter, with samples during the fourth quarter.

"In addition, our upcoming TILE-Mx multicore CPU furthers our push into new and expanding multicore opportunities. We believe that both the NPS-400 and the TILE-Mx favorably position EZchip to become a key processor supplier to address the new SDN/NFV market dynamics, selling not only to equipment vendors, but also directly to the large service providers and data center operators, and expanding our TAM six fold to an estimated $2.2B by 2017", added Mr. Fruchter.

To participate through the live webcast, please access the investor relations section of the Company's web site at:  http://www.ezchip.com/Investor-Relations/?ezchip=527, at least 10 minutes before the conference call commences. If you would like to ask a question on the call, please contact the investor relations team for the telephone dial-in numbers.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this release of operating results also contains non-GAAP financial measures, which EZchip believes are the principal indicators of the operating and financial performance of its business. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effects of stock-based compensation expenses recorded in accordance with FASB ASC 718, acquisition related costs, amortization of purchased intangible assets and one-time charge due to early repayment of OCS grants. Management believes the non-GAAP financial measures provided are useful to investors' understanding and assessment of the Company's on-going core operations and prospects for the future, as the charges eliminated are not part of the day-to-day business or reflective of the core operational activities of the Company.  Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as a basis for strategic decisions, forecasting future results and evaluating the Company's current performance.  However, such measures should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are provided in the schedules attached to this release.
