1 EBITDA is not a recognized measure under IFRS and, accordingly, investors are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income, determined in accordance with IFRS, as an indicator of our financial performance or as a measure of our liquidity and cash flows. For a reconciliation of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, investors should refer to Management's Discussion and Analysis for the current quarter.

"Vecima is encouraged by the strong results in gross margin and cash flow generated through operations. These improvements were achieved despite the decrease in revenue from a strong fourth quarter in our last fiscal year," said Dr. Surinder Kumar, CEO of Vecima.
Vecima's Q1 revenue was $24.9 million, gross margin improved to 40%, EBITDA increased from $4.5 to $8.4 million and adjusted EBITDA was $4.5 million. Gross margin improved because of the increased efficiency and higher sales in new products.
As announced in July 2012, Vecima sold a parcel of non-serviced land in Saskatoon and received proceeds of approximately $4.0 million. The Company also sold a small number of radio spectrum
licenses for $0.4 million in Q1.

MSO BUSINESS SERVICESTerrace Family

• Sales increased 7% to $8.7 million compared to $8.1 million in Q4 of FY12. Vecima continues to see consistent uptake of its TC1200, TC1000 and TC600 products by its MSO customers.
• Revenue from TC600 increased over the last three quarters indicating further adoption of this product by new and existing MSO customers.

Terrace QAM

• Sales increased 30% from $4.1 million in Q4 of FY12 to $5.3 million this quarter. Vecima expects continued strong sales through the fiscal year.
• Terrace QAM is attractive to MSO customers because it enables new service revenue in the hospitality sector which includes Tier 1 hotels and resorts.

CABLE HEADEND

OEM QAM Modules

• As anticipated, sales dropped from $4.5 million to $1.1 million. Sales are expected to decline in fiscal 2013 as the product moves towards end of life.
• Next generation solutions in the cable headend will include technology for which Vecima and its partner, a leading integrated circuit manufacturer, have secured the design win. The solution is for a Tier 1 vendor's next generation broadband access platform.

OEM Return Path Demodulator and CableVista

• Sales of these legacy products declined from Q4 FY12 to Q1 FY13. Sales for our OEM return path demodulator dropped from $2.9 million to $1.6 million; while CableVista sales declined from $2.0 million to $1.1 million. A flattening out and then gradual decline in the sales of these products, which are in the late stage of their product lifecycle, is expected over the next
1-2 years.
• As previously announced, Vecima has executed an agreement with a prominent digital video access equipment vendor for a custom designed platform that interfaces to a large, currently deployed base of subscriber devices. Vecima expects the product to start shipping in
production volume in the last quarter of this fiscal year.

BROADBAND WIRELESS

• Sales decreased approximately 13% from $2.6 million in Q4 of FY12 to $2.3 million this period. Weakness in sales of both BWIN and WiMAX products were responsible for most of the revenue drop.
• Software defined radio (SDR) sales remained relatively flat quarter over quarter.

YOURLINK

• Revenue remained flat at $3.1 million from Q4 FY12 to Q1 FY13.
