DISCUSSION OF RESULTS

Ken Plotkin, Hauppauge's Chief Executive Officer stated, "Led by increased sales of our USB-Live and HD PVR video recorder and video streaming products, worldwide sales for fiscal 2012 increased by 8.2% before the negative effect caused by the decline in the Euro. Taking into account the 2.8% decline in the Euro, our net sales increased 5.4% in fiscal 2012 compared with fiscal 2011.

As a result of reduced expenses and headcount, which the company implemented in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, our selling, general and administrative expenses declined by 16.8% from fiscal 2011. The combination of increased sales and reduced expenses allowedHauppauge to reduce our loss approximately 56.52% compared to fiscal 2011.

At the Gamescon show in Cologne, Germany in August 2012, Hauppauge introduced a new gaming recorder designed to allow console and PC gaming enthusiasts to record video game play from the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Sony Playstation 3. Called the HD PVR 2, this new game recorder was designed to provide new features compared with the original HD PVR high definition video recorder. HD PVR 2 was shipped to our customers starting in September 2012.

In anticipation of the launch of the new HD PVR 2, in fiscal Q4 we reduced prices and limited the sales of the original HD PVR in order to reduce channel inventory. The effect of price reductions and limited shipments of the original HD PVR dampened our fourth fiscal quarter sales."
