Industry-leading Qualcomm Gobi Wireless Technology Powers 3G/4G LTE Connectivity on Windows 8 and Windows RT Devices
CHICAGO — October 29, 2012 — Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. , a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today highlighted the leading role its Qualcomm Gobi™ wireless modems play in delivering fast, reliable and seamless 3G and 4G/LTE connectivity to mobile computing devices built on and designed for Windows 8 and Windows RT. Compatible with the USB-IF Mobile Broadband Interface Model (MBIM), which allows for easy integration by PC OEMs, Qualcomm Gobi embedded solutions enable fast connectivity, improved power efficiency and smaller designs – and can be found in a host of Windows 8/RT-based computing products from Dell, Lenovo and Samsung, and in embedded wireless modules from Huawei, Option, Sierra Wireless and ZTE. Additionally, Qualcomm Gobi solutions support flexible, prepaid data plans for global 3G and 4G/LTE connectivity for an always-on, always-connected experience.

“Qualcomm Gobi modems have set the standard for mobile broadband connectivity across a wide range of devices and continue to drive solutions for emerging mobile trends such as thin, ultra-portable computing devices and new pay-as-you-go data options,” said Fram Akiki, senior director of product management at QTI. “We are committed to enabling the fastest mobile connections worldwide and are pleased to have Qualcomm Gobi technology supporting Windows 8 and Windows RT devices.”

Qualcomm Gobi modems, products of QTI, are the industry’s premier embedded wireless solutions and have been implemented in hundreds of laptops, tablets and other portable computing devices since 2008. Qualcomm Gobi’s first-generation 4G/LTE chipset, the MDM9x00, delivered the world’s first integrated LTE/3G modem and has been shipping to customers for more than a year. Embedded mobile computing OEMs are transitioning to Qualcomm Gobi’s second-generation 4G/LTE chipset, the MDM9x15, which enables lower power and smaller devices. Qualcomm Gobi’s third-generation LTE solution, the MDM9x25, is an LTE Advanced solution that supports LTE carrier aggregation and LTE Category 4 with peak data rates of up to 150 Mbps.

“At Dell, our customers lead the way and consumer and business users alike want anytime, anywhere access to data and applications,” said Brett McAnally, executive director, End User Computing, Dell. “Qualcomm Gobi technology is planned to power a variety of notebooks and tablets across our latest product portfolio. These systems will also feature optional Dell NetReady mobile broadband to enable on-the-go users to connect when and where they want.”

“We’re excited to offer the latest Qualcomm Gobi technology in the ThinkPad Tablet 2,” said Dilip Bhatia, vice president at Lenovo. “The ThinkPad Tablet 2 offers industry leading mobility allowing business professionals to stay connected and be productive anywhere. Gobi 4G LTE modems help make this possible.”

“We look forward to offering our connected device customers the most advanced mobile broadband connectivity through Qualcomm Gobi 4G LTE technology,” said David Song, senior vice president of PC sales and marketing for Samsung Electronics. “The always-on, alwaysconnected experience is increasingly important for today’s mobile and computing products, and Qualcomm Gobi connectivity enables access to the fastest networks worldwide.”

“We are excited to be working closely with QTI to offer Qualcomm Gobi-based embedded products to customers building for Windows 8 and Windows RT,” said He Jinjun, director of mobile broadband solutions at Huawei. “Qualcomm Gobi’s multimode connectivity, performance and efficiency add value to our customers worldwide.”

“We have been using Qualcomm Gobi products for years and are pleased to be extending that relationship to our customers building Windows 8 and Windows RT-based devices,” said Bernard Schaballie, general manager embedded solutions at Option. “Qualcomm Gobi 4G/LTE connectivity is built into our third-generation GTM801U LGA module and enables an improved footprint and greater power efficiency for integration in thin form factor mobile computing products.”

“Qualcomm Gobi technology adds tremendous value to our products by enabling seamless connectivity across networks,” said Dan Schieler, senior vice president, mobile computing for Sierra Wireless. “We’re pleased to be bringing our Qualcomm Gobi-based solutions to PC OEM customers building the next generation of mobile computing devices.”

“As an industry leader in mobile broadband, and a long-time licensee of Qualcomm technology, we are excited to be incorporating Qualcomm Gobi modems in our latest product portfolio,” said Dr. Liu Shu Liang, director of MBB product planning at ZTE. “Our deep engineering experience and MBB design capabilities enable us to develop the very best Qualcomm Gobi-based products for our laptop and tablet customers worldwide.”

LEUVEN, België – 25 oktober, 2012 – Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), een wereldspeler op het gebied van draadloze connectiviteit, beveiliging en ervaring, maakte vandaag bekend dat de onderneming in het derde kwartaal van 2012 een omzet realiseerde van 11,7 miljoen EURO vergeleken met 11,3 miljoen EURO in het derde kwartaal van 2011. Productgerelateerde opbrengsten vertegenwoordigden 3,3 miljoen EURO en software- en licentie-opbrengsten vertegenwoordigden 8,4 miljoen EURO van de totale kwartaalopbrengsten van het derde kwartaal 2012. Zoals reeds eerder gemeld, loopt het akkoord over de software licentie met Huawei nog tot eind oktober 2012. Er wordt verwacht dat de software en licentie-opbrengsten hierdoor vanaf het volgende kwartaal zullen beïnvloed worden.



De onderneming rapporteert een positieve EBITDA van 3,8 miljoen EURO voor het derder kwartaal van 2012.



Business Update



Tijdens het kwartaal heeft het bedrijf verder gewerkt aan het voorbereiden van haar go-to-market activiteiten voor de nieuwe lijn van producten en diensten waarbij de focus ligt op verticale markten zoals de automobielsector (WiFi in de wagen) of draadloze beveiliging en bewaking. Begin oktober lanceerde de onderneming nog een ander nieuw product, CloudGate, gericht op een derde verticale markt namelijk die van M2M (machine-to-machine).



Om deze go-to-market activiteiten te ondersteunen kondigde de onderneming begin oktober aan dat het verschillende opties bestudeert om het werkkapitaal te verhogen via een cashinjectie van minimaal 5 miljoen EURO (zie het persbericht hierover op www.option.com)



Als deel van het voortdurend streven van de onderneming om de kostenbasis te verminderen werd beslist om de divisie in Augsburg (Duitsland) te sluiten en de software activiteiten naar Leuven (België) over te brengen.




LEUVEN, Belgium – October 25, 2012 – Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), a global leader in wireless connectivity, security and experience, today announced that during the third quarter of 2012 the Company generated revenue of EUR 11.7 million compared to EUR 11.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. Product related revenues represented 3.3 million EUR and software & license revenues represented 8.4 million EUR of total third quarter 2012 revenues. As reported earlier, the license software agreement with Huawei runs till the end of October 2012, and as a result revenues from software & license are expected to be impacted as of next quarter.



The Company reports a positive EBITDA of EUR 3.8 million for the third quarter of 2012.



Business Update



During the quarter the Company continued to prepare the go-to-market activities for its new line of products and services focused on vertical markets such as automotive (WiFi in the car) and wireless security & surveillance. Early October the Company launched another new product, CloudGate, aimed at a third vertical market being the M2M (machine-to-machine) market.



In order to support these go-to-market activities the Company announced, at the beginning of October, that it is looking at different options to strengthen its working capital via a cash injection of a minimum amount of 5 million euro (see separate press release at www.option.com).



As part of the Company’s ongoing efforts to reduce its cost-base it was decided to close the Augsburg (Germany) facility and to move the software activities to Leuven (Belgium).

CloudGate staat voor een budgetvriendelijke 3G M2M gateway die het gebruik van M2M-oplossingen vereenvoudigt

LEUVEN, België – 10 oktober 2012 – Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), wereldleider op het gebied van draadloze connectiviteit, beveiliging en ervaring, kondigde vandaag CloudGate – een veilige, betrouwbare en budgetvriendelijke 3G M2M gateway die flexibiliteit en eenvoudige installatie naar een niveau hoger brengt voor M2M oplossing in de VS.

CloudGate levert van bij de lancering veilige en betrouwbare LAN voor 3G-routing in een robuuste, compacte behuizing die compatibel is met alle GSM en CDMA mobiele netwerken in de VS, en dat in één enkel toestel. CloudGate kan worden aangepast aan de behoeftes van systeemintegratoren en eindgebruikers dankzij zijn innovatieve cloud provisioning dienst en unieke flexibiliteit van de hardware. CloudGate geeft systeemintegratoren en M2M middleware leveranciers de mogelijkheid om automatisch hun oplossingen te ontplooien voor de units van hun klanten wanneer ze specifieke verticale markten benaderen.

Patrick Hofkens, Chief Development Officer bij Option, zei : “CloudGate combineert Option’s diepgaande inzicht in 3G- en routertechnologie met de kennis over servergebruik en gebruiksvriendelijkheid. Het product werd ontwikkeld op basis van de feedback ontvangen van systeemintegratoren die op zoek waren naar een gebruiksvriendelijke en budgetvriendelijke 3G gateway. Gebruiksvriendelijkheid betekent drie dingen voor onze klanten: ten eerste dat onze producten onmiddellijk werken op alle bestaande mobiele netwerken in de VS. Ten tweede en dat ze snel en efficiënt hun eigen M2M-oplossingen kunnen uitrollen op deze gateway, zonder een verdere tussenkomst van onze kant. En ten derde, dat ze uitbreidingsgleuven ter beschikking hebben zodat ze over de nodige flexibiliteit beschikken om via kaarten extra functionaliteiten te voorzien. CloudGate biedt hen alle drie deze elementen.”

Het basisproduct van CloudGate configureert zichzelf om verbinding te maken met alle grote mobiele netwerken van operatoren in de VS, en biedt zo systeemintegratoren en resellers de mogelijkheid om een enkele basisunit in stock te hebben die kan worden aangepast aan de specifieke behoeften van eindgebruikers. Het product beschikt over twee hardware uitbreidingspoorten, die volledig maatwerk via het kanaal of on site mogelijk maken, zowel tijdens als na de installatie.

CloudGate monitort permanent de 3G-connectiviteit en omvat een aantal innovatieve mechanismes voor foutenherstelling die het toelaten om de 3G-connectie te verzekeren.

Option plant om een aantal uitbreidingskaarten voor CloudGate op de markt te brengen en het werkt ook samen ment andere partijen om specifieke hardware- en software-oplossingen te ontwikkelen voor specifieke markten. Option geeft geïnteresseerde partijen licenties (kosteloos) voor het formaat van de uitbreidingskaarten en de connectordetails.

CloudGate zal beschikbaar zijn via de VS-distributeur Get Wireless vanaf november.

LEUVEN, België – 10 oktober 2012 –Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), wereldspeler op het gebied van draadloze connectiviteit, beveiliging en gebruiksgemak, maakt vandaag bekend dat de Raad van Bestuur verschillende opties bestudeert om het werkkapitaal te verhogen via een cashinjectie van minimaal 5 miljoen EUR voor het jaareinde, om zo het vooruitzicht van het herwinnen van winstgevendheid en duurzame groei op korte termijn veilig te stellen.



De Onderneming blijft geconfronteerd met de risico’s en onzekerheden zoals beschreven in het tussentijds financieel verslag van de Raad van Bestuur voor de eerste zes maanden van 2012. Sindsdien is de cashpositie van de Onderneming verder beïnvloed door het opbouwen van stock en de langere verkoopcycli voor de nieuwe producten.



Option blijft werk maken van de vermindering van de kostenbasis door een verdere stroomlijning van zijn activiteiten en het focussen van de verkoop- en marketinginspanningen in een zeer dynamische marktomgeving.



Option heeft sinds begin 2012 zijn business getransformeerd in de richting van end-to-end oplossingen voor zowel de professionele markt als voor particulieren, weg van de gestandaardiseerde producten voor mobiele operatoren.

De investeringen van de voorbije 20 maanden hebben geresulteerd in een nieuwe lijn van producten en diensten waarbij de focus ligt op verticale markten zoals de autombielsector of draadloze beveiliging en bewaking. Vandaag lanceerde de Onderneming nog een ander nieuw product, CloudGate, bedoeld voor de aantrekkende M2M-markt in de VS.



Om deze verschillende verticale markten te benaderen, wil de Onderneming zijn merknaam verder ontwikkelen, verkooppkanalen toevoegen en ondersteunen in Noord-Amerika, China en Europa en voldoende stock aanleggen om deze kanalen te ondersteunen.



De Onderneming zal ook een e-commerce shop openen tegen eind oktober, op tijd voor de traditionele koopperiode aan het einde van het jaar.



Option zal meer details geven over deze financiering wanneer de specifieke informatie beschikbaar is.



  

LEUVEN, Belgium – October 10, 2012 – Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), a global player in wireless connectivity, security and experience, today announces that the Board of Directors is looking at different options to strengthen its working capital via a cash injection of a minimum amount of 5 million euro before year end, in order to secure the prospect of regaining profitability and sustainable growth in the near term.



The Company continues to be faced with the risks and uncertainties described in the interim financial report of the Board of Directors for the first six months of 2012. Since then, the cash position of the Company has been further impacted by the build-up of inventory and the longer sales cycles for the new products.



Option continues to look at reducing its cost-base by further rightsizing its operations and focusing its sales and marketing efforts in a very dynamic market environment.



Option has been transforming its entire business since the beginning of 2011 towards end-to-end solutions for businesses and consumers, away from the plain vanilla products for mobile network operators.



The investments of the last 20 months have resulted in a new line of products and services focused on vertical markets such as automotive and wireless security & surveillance. Today the Company announced yet another new product, CloudGate, aimed at the buoying M2M market in the US.



In order to address these different vertical markets, the Company wants to develop its brand name, add and support sales channels in North-Americas, China and Europe and build up appropriate stock levels to support these channels.



The Company will also open an e-commerce shop by the end of October, in time for the traditionally end-of season buying period.



Option will provide more details about the financing round when specific information is available.


Option invests $1.5 million in Autonet Mobile to deliver the 1st Mobile IP Based Telematics Control Unit for the Automotive market

LEUVEN, Belgium – September 5, 2011 – Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY) today announced its $1.5 million investment and partnership with San Francisco, US, based Autonet Mobile, Inc., a leading provider in in-car connectivity. The partnership will utilize Option’s wireless modules and software to deliver the first mobile IP based Telematics Control Unit (TCU) for cars. The new system leverages Autonet Mobile technology and TCU design, enabling automotive manufacturers from around the world to connect their cars to high speed mobile networks and deliver new features that enable pervasive cloud computing, mobile apps and fleet telematics. Option’s wireless modules combined with Autonet Mobile TCU and managed network, make this the first intelligent communication and control device designed to create a new and verticalized mobile automotive ecosystem. For consumers, apps can be downloaded to the car or to companion smartphones and tablets enhancing car functionality and driving experience. Jan Callewaert, CEO of Option: “This is an important investment and strategic move for our company as the business model of Autonet Mobile is quite attractive to us aiming to become the app store for the car industry. With more than 40 million cars produced each year and more than 250 million on the road in the US, we see the market of connected cars as an important vertical opportunity. By partnering with Autonet Mobile we combine the best of both worlds: knowledge of the automotive market and 25 years of experience in designing and developing wireless solutions.” ”The automotive industry is looking for new technologies that will make their cars easier to manage, deliver new features and drive new forms of revenue” said Sterling Pratz, CEO of Autonet Mobile, Inc. “Partnering with Option allows us to build the first mobile IP-based Telematics Control Unit for cars with exceptional high speed capabilities and serving multiple operator networks.” This strategic partnership and resultant automotive mobile application platform is targeting the leading automotive manufacturers worldwide. For Option it is a further demonstration of the repositioning of the Company delivering wireless end-to-end solutions based on hardware, software and services. Under the agreement Option is the preferred supplier for wireless modules and software. Jan Callewaert, CEO of Option, has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Autonet Mobile, Inc. The partnership is expected to contribute to the financial results as from the first half of 2012. Option will continue to supply wireless modules to other automotive partners.

Option investeert $1,5 miljoen in Autonet Mobile om te komen tot de eerste mobiele IP-gebaseerde Telematics Control Unit voor de automobielsector

LEUVEN, België – 5 september 2011 – Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY) heeft vandaag haar investering van $ 1,5 miljoen en haar partnership bekendgemaakt met het in San Francisco (VS) gevestigde Autonet Mobile, Inc., een belangrijke speler op het vlak van connectiviteit in auto’s. Dit partnership zal Option’s draadloze modules en software aanwenden om de eerste mobiele IP-gebaseerde Telematics Control Unit (TCU) voor auto’s voort te brengen. Dit nieuwe systeem tilt de technologie en TCU-ontwerpen van Autonet Mobile naar een hoger niveau en biedt autoconstructeurs over de hele wereld de gelegenheid om hun auto’s koppelen aan snelle, mobiele netwerken en om nieuwe toepassingen aan te bieden, zoals pervasive cloud computing, mobiele apps en vloottelematica. De combinatie van enerzijds de draadloze modules van Option en anderzijds de TCU en het beheerde netwerk van Autonet Mobile leidt tot het eerste intelligente communicatie- en beheerssysteem ontwikkeld om een nieuw en verticaal mobiel ecosysteem voor auto’s te creëren. Gebruikers kunnen er apps downloaden in de wagen zelf of via smartphones of tablets, wat zowel de functionaliteit van de wagen als de rij-ervaring verbetert. Jan Callewaert, CEO bij Option: “Dit is een belangrijke investering en strategische zet voor ons bedrijf aangezien het businessmodel van Autonet Mobile vrij aantrekkelijk is voor ons omdat het wil uitgroeien tot de app store voor de automobielsector. Elk jaar rollen er meer dan 40 miljoen auto’s van de band. Bovendien rijden er meer dan 250 miljoen voertuigen op de wegen in de VS. We zien de sector van ‘connected cars’ dan ook als een belangrijke verticale groeimarkt. Door samen te werken met Autonet Mobile combineren we het beste van twee werelden: kennis van de autosector en 25 jaar ervaring in het ontwikkelen en ontwerpen van draadloze oplossingen.” “De autosector is op zoek naar nieuwe technologieën die het beheer van voertuigen eenvoudiger maken, nieuwe toepassingen opleveren en nieuwe inkomstenbronnen aanboren”, aldus Sterling Pratz, CEO bij Autonet Mobile, Inc. “Door samen te werken met Option kunnen we de eerste mobiele IP-gebaseerde Telematics Control Unit voor auto’s bouwen op maat van de autosector, en dit met uitzonderlijke capaciteit voor hoge snelheid en met de mogelijkheid om te functioneren binnen de netwerken van verschillende operatoren.” Dit strategisch partnership en het bijbehorende platform voor mobiele applicaties voor auto’s richt zich tot de belangrijkste autoconstructeurs over de hele wereld. Voor Option is dit een verder bewijs van de herpositionering van het bedrijf door het brengen van draadloze end-to-end oplossingen gebaseerd op hardware, software en diensten. Als onderdeel van de overeenkomst is Option de voorkeursleverancier van draadloze modules en software. Jan Callewaert, CEO van Option, is aangesteld als lid van de raad van bestuur van Autonet Mobile, Inc. Verwacht wordt dat het partnership zal bijdragen tot de financiële resultaten vanaf de eerste jaarhelft van 2012. Option blijft ook draadloze modules leveren aan andere partners uit de automobielsector.

Leuven, België – 31 augustus 2012 – Option N.V. (EURONEXT Brussel: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), de specialist op het vlak van draadloze communicatie, heeft vandaag haar resultaten bekendgemaakt voor het eerste halfjaar van 2012, eindigend op 30 juni.

De boekhoudprincipes en waarderingsregels die in de onderstaande financiële rapportering worden gevolgd, zijn dezelfde als deze in de meest recente jaarrekening.

Business Update

Option heeft de voorbije 18 maanden zijn business omgevormd, met als resultaat dat de activiteit nu rond drie strategische pijlers is opgebouwd: Connectiviteit, Beveiliging, Beleving.

Tijdens het Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, toonde Option de XYfi, VIU2, Cloudkey en GlobeSurfer III+. Op basis van de feedback uit de markt en van potentiële klanten werden deze producten en oplossingen verder ontwikkeld en worden ze nu gecommercialiseerd.

Ze vormen het bewijs dat de Groep is opgeschoven van basisproducten voor mobiele netwerkoperatoren, naar End-to-End oplossingen voor zowel de professionele als de particuliere markt. Het aanbod is nu gericht naar verticale markten, zoals de autosector, financiële diensten, beveiliging en bewaking.

Na 18 maanden van ontwikkeling van deze nieuwe producten en diensten, is de Groep nu klaar om te starten met het genereren van return on investment (ROI) door terugkerende opbrengsten.

Financiële kerncijfers voor het eerste halfjaar van 2012

 

  • De opbrengsten voor het eerste halfjaar van 2012 bedroegen 23,3 miljoen EURO in vergelijking met 25,8 miljoen EURO tijdens het eerste halfjaar van 2011. De opbrengsten met betrekking tot producten daalde van 11,5 miljoen EURO in het eerste halfjaar van 2011 naar 6 miljoen EURO in dezelfde periode van 2012, terwijl de software en de licentie opbrengsten toenamen van 14,2 miljoen EURO in het eerste halfjaar van 2011 tot 17,3 miljoen EURO in dezelfde periode van 2012. De licentie overeenkomst die de Groep heeft afgesloten met Huawei Technologies genereerde totale opbrengsten van 16,5 miljoen EURO tijdens de eerste 6 maanden van 2012, vergeleken met 13,5 miljoen EURO het eerste halfjaar van 2011.
  • De brutowinstmarge van het eerste halfjaar van 2012 bedroeg 75,6 % ten opzichte van de opbrengsten in vergelijking met een brutowinstmarge van 54,6 % in de eerste jaarhelft van 2011. De brutowinstmarge werd positief beïnvloed door de toegenomen software en licentie opbrengsten.
  • In vergelijking met de eerste jaarhelft van 2011, daalden de bedrijfskosten met 3,5 miljoen EURO, van 17,5 miljoen EURO naar 14 miljoen EURO, door de verlaging van de ontwikkelingskosten, alsook de verkoops- en marketing kosten.
  • De EBIT voor het eerste halfjaar van 2012 en het netto resultaat bedroegen respectievelijk 3,5 miljoen EURO en 3,7 miljoen EURO in vergelijking met een EBIT en netto resultaat van respectievelijk –3,5 miljoen EURO en –2,9 miljoen EURO tijdens dezelfde periode vorig jaar.
  • De cashpositie daalde van 25,2 miljoen EURO op jaareinde 2011 naar 13,0 miljoen EURO, en dit als gevolg van enerzijds een negatieve cashflow uit de bedrijfsactiviteiten van 9,1 miljoen EURO en anderzijds de cashflow van 3,1 miljoen EURO aangewend voor investeringsactiviteiten.
