Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results16:01 EDT Monday, August 02, 2010 BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (Business Wire) -- Synchronoss Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNCR), the leading global provider of on-demand transaction management software platforms, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2010. “Synchronoss' solid momentum and execution in the second quarter led to revenue growth and profitability that were greater than our expectations. We continue to be optimistic about the company's outlook based on progress against each of our key growth initiatives,” said Stephen G. Waldis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Synchronoss. “We are very pleased with the performance and scalability of our industry leading activation platform, which managed record daily transaction volumes across all device types during the second quarter.” Waldis added, “The adoption and footprint of our ConvergenceNow® Plus+ platform continues to grow. Existing customers are expanding global deployments and connections with Tier 1 service providers and new global OEM customers are establishing direct relationships with Synchronoss. We believe the addition of FusionOne's mobile content transfer and synchronization capabilities at the time of activation will further extend our leadership position and accelerate the momentum of Synchronoss' connected device strategy.” For the second quarter of 2010, Synchronoss reported net revenues of $37.2 million, an increase of 22% compared to the second quarter of 2009. Gross profit, including the impact of fair value stock-based compensation expense, was $18.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. Income from operations, determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), was $5.1 million, including $2.8 million of fair value stock-based compensation expense. Based on an effective tax rate of 39.8% in the second quarter of 2010, GAAP net income was $3.0 million and GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.09, compared to $0.08 in the second quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP gross profit for the second quarter of 2010 was $19.1 million, representing a non-GAAP gross margin of 51.4%. Non-GAAP income from operations, which excludes fair value stock-based compensation expense and acquisition related costs, was $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2010, representing a non-GAAP operating margin of 21.9%. Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of 2010 was $4.8 million, leading to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.15, an increase of 25% compared to $0.12 in the second quarter of 2009. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures." “During the second quarter, our relationships outside of AT&T drove solid growth. We also have additional connected device and cable service provider deployments moving into production over the second half of the year, and we continue to expand our customer base,” said Lawrence R. Irving, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. “The acquisition of FusionOne completed after the close of the quarter will not only provide a significant boost to our revenue related to connected devices, it will also significantly accelerate our customer and revenue diversification efforts beginning in the third quarter. We believe this will drive significant long-term value for Synchronoss and our stockholders.” Other Second Quarter and Recent Business Highlights: On July 19, 2010, Synchronoss completed the acquisition of privately-held FusionOne, Inc., the established leader in mobile content transfer and synchronization technology. Synchronoss paid approximately $40 million, consisting of approximately $32 million in cash and $8 million in Synchronoss stock. Synchronoss may also pay up to an additional $35 million in cash and stock based on FusionOne's business achieving certain performance targets through 2011. Business related to AT&T accounted for approximately $24.5 million of revenue, representing 66% of total revenue, while business outside of the AT&T relationship accounted for approximately $12.7 million of revenue, representing 34% of total revenue.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures Synchronoss has provided in this release selected financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. This information includes historical non-GAAP operating income, net income, effective tax rate, and earnings per share. Synchronoss uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Synchronoss' ongoing operational performance. Synchronoss believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Synchronoss' industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. As noted, the non-GAAP financial results discussed above exclude fair value stock-based compensation expense and acquisition related costs for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as detailed above. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. About Synchronoss Technologies, Inc.
