While capital expenditures on telecommunications equipment remains weak, Ulticom continues to benefit from targeted spending on services that carriers view as vital for revenue growth and operational efficiency," said Shawn Osborne, President and CEO of Ulticom. "The utility of our products and diversity of their application has allowed us to deliver increased results over the last four quarters as carriers shift investments among Ulticom's five key market segments. With wireless services and packet networking as our strategic guideposts, we believe that Ulticom is well positioned to take advantage of the eventual recovery and next growth cycle in our industry."

The Company ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments of $219,197,000, working capital of $219,397,000, total assets of $238,983,000, and shareholders' equity of $225,422,000.
