Second Quarter 2017 Summary and Recent Developments

Jeffrey Parker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We made tremendous progress this quarter with the development of new wireless connectivity choices for both consumers and small business users alike. We are very excited to launch our Milo Wi-Fi systems with pre-orders available through our new Web Store beginning August 16th and through Amazon shortly thereafter. With its enhanced Wi-Fi capability available at affordable price points, we believe Milo will have broad appeal to consumers and small office users, resulting in meaningful product revenue growth the balance of this year, particularly during the holiday season. We also announced the introduction of the PV6870, a highly integrated complete Wi-Fi system-on-chip that delivers a combination of flexibility and features at an attractive cost and small size. These new products serve as foundation for the future development and growth of our product strategy."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures that Supplement GAAP Measures

We use both generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and non-GAAP financial measures for assessing our operating performance.  The non-GAAP measures we use include Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss per Share.  These non-GAAP measures exclude the effect on net loss and net loss per share of (i) changes in fair value of our contingent payment obligation and (ii) share-based compensation expense.  We consider these non-GAAP measures to provide relevant supplemental information to assist investors in better understanding our operating results.  These non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.   A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, follow (in thousands except for per share amounts):
