RadiSys Revenues Grow to $50.2 Million for Third Quarter

10/17/2003 - RadiSys Corporation (Nasdaq: RSYS), a leading global provider of embedded systems, reported revenues of $50.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2003, a 3% increase from $48.9 million last quarter, and up 5% versus the same period a year ago. Net income for the quarter was $2.3 million, or $.12 per diluted share, versus a net income of $1.8 million or $.10 per share last quarter, and a net loss of $521 thousand, or $.03 per share, a year ago.

"I'm very proud of our team and the results for the quarter," stated Scott Grout, CEO. "We delivered sequential and year over year growth in both revenue and earnings and generated over $4 million in cash flow during the quarter. Our design wins this quarter are spread amongst many markets including solutions for products such as gateways, clinical diagnostic systems, security monitoring systems, and test and measurement systems. We continue to make meaningful progress on our product portfolio, announcing a number of industry firsts including: The SYS50, a fully integrated, CompactPCI PICMG 2.16 platform, a dual processor PrPMC based on the Intel® IXC1100 control plane processor and a fully integrated PICMG 2.16, dual OC-3c ATM-to-IP gateway line card."

RadiSys achieved eleven new design wins in the quarter. A design win is defined by RadiSys as a project estimated at the time of the design win to produce more than $500 thousand in revenue per year assuming full production. Five of the wins are estimated to produce more than $2 million each in revenue per year, assuming full production. Of the eleven wins, six are in Enterprise Systems, four are in Commercial Systems and one is in Service Provider Systems. Design wins that ramp into production do so at varying rates - on average the ramp begins about twelve months after the win occurs.

In addition, RadiSys is pleased to announce that Ken J. Bradley has been elected to serve on the company's Board of Directors effective October 14, 2003. Mr. Bradley is currently CEO of CoreSim Inc., a company specializing in advanced systems design analysis and product lifecycle management. Prior to CoreSim, Mr. Bradley was with Nortel Networks, most recently as Nortel's Chief Procurement Officer. During his 30 year career at Nortel, Mr. Bradley held several national and international executive positions in supply management, operations management and technology development including Vice President, Supplier Strategy; Senior Managing Director, Guangdong Nortel Communications Joint Venture in China; and Vice President, China Joint Venture Program. Mr. Bradley is a degreed electrical engineer and a member of the Professional Engineers of Ontario.

"We are extremely pleased to have Ken join our board," said Scott Grout, President and CEO of RadiSys. "Ken's experience in world-class supply chain management, his customer perspective and his first-hand knowledge of building and operating successful operations in China will be of significant value to RadiSys."

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including the statements concerning estimated revenue from design wins, and the typical production volume ramp of design wins. Investors are cautioned that not all design wins actually ramp into production, and, if ramped into production, the volumes derived from such design wins may not be as significant as the Company had originally estimated. The determination of a design win is somewhat subjective and is based on information available to the Company at the time of the determination. The Company assumes no responsibility to update investors on the status of announced design wins. Statements about the Company's guidance for the fourth quarter, particularly with respect to anticipated revenues and earnings in the fourth quarter, also constitute forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of risk factors, including the cyclical nature of our customers' businesses; the Company's dependence on a few customers; schedule delays or cancellations in design wins; the Company's dependence on a few suppliers; intense competition; execution of the development or production ramp for design wins; political, economic and regulatory risks associated with international operations, including interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; the inability to protect RadiSys' intellectual property or successfully defend against infringement claims by others; disruptions in the general economy and in the Company's business, including disruptions of cash flow and the Company's normal operations, that may result from terrorist attacks or armed conflict, particularly in the Middle East, and other risk factors listed from time to time in RadiSys' SEC reports, including those listed under "Risk Factors" in RadiSys' Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2002, a copy of which may be obtained by contacting the Company's investor relations department at 503-615-7797 or at the Company's investor relations website at http://www.radisys.com. Although forward-looking statements help provide complete information about RadiSys, investors should keep in mind that forward-looking statements are inherently less reliable than historical information.

All information in this release is as of October 15, 2003. The Company undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statement to conform the statement to actual results or changes in the Company's expectations.
