UTStarcom Requests Additional Filing Extension From NASDAQ

ALAMEDA, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- UTStarcom, Inc.
(Nasdaq: UTSI), a global leader in IP-based, end-to-end networking solutions
and services, today announced that the company has submitted a request to the
NASDAQ Listing Qualifications Panel for an additional extension of the
deadline for the company to regain compliance with the NASDAQ continued
listing requirements related to the filing of SEC reports.

(Logo: )

As previously announced on March 13, 2007, the Panel granted the company's
request for continued listing subject to the requirement that the company file
its Quarterly Report for the quarter ended September 30, 2006 and Annual
Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, by April 16,

In this request for an additional extension, the company requested that
the Panel grant the company until May 31, 2007 to file both of these reports.

The Company intends to announce the Panel's decision promptly after it
receives written notice of such decision.

As previously communicated on February 1, 2007, the independent review by
the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Company's Board of
Directors (the 'Governance Committee') found that in certain instances all
actions that establish a measurement date under the requirements of Accounting
Principles Board No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees, had not
occurred at the grant date, which had been used as the measurement date in
accounting for Company stock option grants. A later date, when all such
actions had taken place, should have been used as the measurement date for
these stock options. The Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors
(the 'Audit Committee') then determined, in consultation with and on the
recommendation of the Company's management, the effect of using incorrect
measurement dates would require the Company to record material additional
stock-based compensation charges in its previously issued financial
statements. The Company therefore previously announced, based on preliminary
information, its previously issued financial statements for the years 2000
through 2006, including interim periods within these fiscal years, should no
longer be relied upon, and its estimate that the restatement may involve
additional non-cash compensation and related charges of approximately $50
. The company is working to complete its restatement and become current
in its public filings as soon as possible, and currently intends to do so as
soon as practicable. There can be no assurance that the company will be able
to make its filings within this time frame. The Company now expects that it
will not be able to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter
ended March 31, 2007 by the May 10, 2007 due date or any applicable extension

This information is preliminary and is subject to changes that might
result from completion of the Governance Committee's investigation,
management's and the Audit Committee's review of the findings of the
Governance Committee, and an audit by the Company's independent registered
public accounting firm, but it provides management's best estimates based on
available information.

Forward-Looking Statements

Information in this release regarding the status and determinations
resulting from the Governance Committee's independent review, the Audit
Committee's assessment of the results of that review, Company management's
estimate of the total amount of additional non-cash stock-based compensation
charges that may be recognized, and the present expectations concerning the
timing of filings with the SEC, as well as other expectations and beliefs, are
forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. All forward-
looking statements included in this release are based upon information
available to the Company as of the date of this release, which may change, and
we assume no obligation to update any such forward-looking statement. These
statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results could
differ materially from our current expectations. Factors that could cause or
contribute to such differences include the final conclusions of the Governance
Committee (and the timing of such conclusions) concerning matters relating to
stock option grants, the review of such conclusions by the Audit Committee,
Company management, and the Company's independent registered public accounting
firm, and other risks detailed from time to time in the Company's SEC reports
and filings, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on
Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K.

The investigation regarding timing of past stock option grants and other
potentially related issues is ongoing, and the determinations of the
Governance Committee, the Audit Committee and the Company's management
discussed in this release are preliminary. In addition, the investigation and
possible conclusions have had and may in the future have an impact on the
amount and timing of stock-based compensation expense and other related
additional charges to be recorded for previously awarded equity grants, our
ability to file required reports with the SEC on a timely basis, our ability
to meet the requirements of the NASDAQ Global Select Market for continued
listing of our shares, potential claims and proceedings relating to such
matters, including shareholder or employee litigation and action by the SEC
and/or other governmental agencies, and negative tax or other implications for
the Company resulting from any accounting adjustments or other factors.
