AVID TECHNOLOGY, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1.
FINANCIAL INFORMATION

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Avid Technology, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively, “Avid” or the “Company”). These financial statements are unaudited. However, in the opinion of management, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all normal and recurring adjustments necessary for their fair statement. Interim results are not necessarily indicative of results expected for any other interim period or a full year. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q and, therefore, do not include all information and footnotes necessary for a complete presentation of operations, financial position and cash flows of the Company in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 was derived from the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and revised for errors as described below, but does not include all disclosures required by U.S. GAAP. The Company filed audited consolidated financial statements for, and as of, the year ended December 31, 2011 in its 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K, which included all information and footnotes necessary for such presentation. The financial statements contained in this Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements in the Form 10-K, as well as the condensed consolidated financial statements in the Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012 as it pertains to the "Revised Prior Period Amounts" section below. Certain prior period amounts disclosed in these financial statements have also been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. None of these reclassifications or changes in presentation is considered material.

The Company's preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported periods. The most significant estimates reflected in these financial statements include revenue recognition, stock-based compensation, accounts receivable and sales allowances, inventory valuation, goodwill and intangible asset valuations, loss on assets held-for-sale, fair value measurements, restructuring charges and income tax asset valuation allowances. Actual results could differ from the Company's estimates.

The Company evaluated subsequent events through the date of issuance of these financial statements and, except as disclosed in the "Subsequent Divestiture of Consumer Audio and Video Businesses and 2012 Restructuring Plan" section below, no other recognized or unrecognized subsequent events required recognition or disclosure in these financial statements.

Subsequent Divestiture of Consumer Audio and Video Businesses and 2012 Restructuring Plan

On July 2, 2012, the Company announced a series of strategic actions that it had initiated to focus on its Media Enterprise and Professionals and Post market segments and to drive improved operating performance. These actions include the divestiture of certain of the Company's consumer focused product lines, a rationalization of the business operations and a reduction in force.
As part of these actions, on July 2, 2012, the Company sold a group of consumer audio products to Numark Industries, L.P. (“Numark”) for approximately $11.8 million and sold a group of consumer video products to Corel Corporation (“Corel”) for approximately $3.0 million . The consumer audio products that were sold include M-Audio brand keyboards, controllers, certain interfaces, speakers and digital DJ equipment and other product lines, as well as certain associated intellectual property, including the M-Audio trademark. Avid will continue to develop and sell its Pro Tools line of software and hardware, as well as certain associated I/O devices including Mbox and Fast Track. The consumer video products that were sold include the Pinnacle and Avid Studio range of software and hardware. This includes Avid Studio and Pinnacle Studio desktop editing software and the Avid studio for the iPad as well as legacy video capture offerings and certain associated intellectual property including the Pinnacle trademark. Total revenues for 2011 from these divested product lines were approximately $91.0 million , or 13% of the Company's consolidated net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011 . The divestiture of these consumer product lines is intended to allow the Company to focus on the Media Enterprise and Professionals and Post market segments, is intended to reduce complexity from the Company's operations to improve operational efficiencies, and is intended to allow the Company to change its cost structure, by moving away from lower growth, lower margin sectors to drive improved financial performance.
On July 2, 2012, as part of the announcement of strategic actions, the Company announced a restructuring plan (the “2012 Plan”) intended to improve operational efficiencies. Actions under the 2012 Plan included a reduction in force and the closure or partial closure of certain facilities. Together, the transfer of employees to Corel and Numark as part of the divestitures and the reduction in force will reduce the Company's permanent employee headcount by approximately 20% . The Company anticipates that it will

5



complete all actions under the 2012 Plan prior to the year ending December 31, 2012. The Company expects to incur total expenses relating to termination benefits and facility costs associated with the reduction in force and related actions of approximately $20.0 million to $23.0 million , which primarily represent cash expenditures. During the quarter ended June 30, 2012 , the Company recorded restructuring charges of approximately $14.9 million under this plan. The Company expects to take additional charges of $5.0 million to $8.0 million in the second half of 2012 primarily related to the closure or partial closure of facilities.
See Note 7, Assets Held-for-Sale, and Note 13, Restructuring Costs and Accruals, for further details and the related accounting for these consumer product line divestitures and the 2012 restructuring plan. See also Notes 4, 5, 6, 9 and 12 for other disclosures related to these divestitures and restructuring plan.

Revised Prior Period Amounts

While preparing its financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company identified and corrected certain errors related to the accounting for an intercompany note made between two of its international subsidiaries that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2007. The Company determined that it should have accrued withholding taxes of approximately $3.8 million at the time of the loan, and as a result, the Company had understated the provision for income taxes in 2007 and income taxes payable reported on its balance sheets for each period subsequent to the transaction. Additionally, as the tax was not withheld and paid to the taxing authority, the Company is subject to interest and penalties on the unpaid balance, commencing in the three months ended March 31, 2009 and for subsequent periods. Interest and penalties totaled approximately $1.1 million ( $0.7 million interest and $0.4 million penalties) and $1.0 million ( $0.6 million interest and $0.4 million penalties) at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , respectively. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded a discrete tax benefit of approximately $3.8 million when it determined that it would repay the intercompany note and file a refund claim for the withholding taxes due (see Note 16). In addition, upon repayment of the intercompany note, the Company will request a refund from the taxing authority for any penalties paid under a voluntary compliance approach, although there can be no assurance that a refund of the penalties will be obtained.

In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Staff Accounting Bulletin Nos. 99 and 108 (“SAB 99” and “SAB 108”), the Company evaluated these errors and, based on an analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors, determined that they were immaterial to each of the prior reporting periods affected and, therefore, amendment of previously filed reports with the SEC was not required. However, if the adjustments to correct the cumulative effect of the aforementioned errors and other previously unrecorded immaterial errors had been recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company believes the impact would have been significant and would impact comparisons to prior periods. Therefore, as required by SAB 108, the Company has revised in its Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012 previously reported financial information for each quarter of 2011 and for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. In addition to correcting these withholding tax errors, the Company recorded other adjustments to prior period amounts to correct other previously unrecorded immaterial errors. Also, in accordance with SAB 108, the Company will include this revised financial information when it files subsequent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K or files a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the three months ended March 31, 2011, June 30, 2011 , September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2011 have been revised to reflect the effect of the withholding tax errors described above and the other immaterial errors and were presented in the Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012. Revised Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2011 have been presented herein.

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at December 31, 2011 and 2010 have been revised to reflect the cumulative effect of the errors described above and other immaterial errors. These revisions to the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet resulted in increases in accumulated deficit of $7.9 million , $8.2 million , and $6.3 million , respectively, at December 31, 2011 , 2010 and 2009 and were presented in the Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012. Revised Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets for December 31, 2011 have been presented herein.
 
The adjustments to the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for each period resulted in immaterial changes to the amounts previously reported for net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, investing activities and financing activities in these periods.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In July 2012, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2012-02, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment . This ASU allows an organization the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test. An organization electing to perform a qualitative assessment is no longer required to calculate the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset unless the organization determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is “more likely than not” that the asset is impaired.  ASU 2012-02 is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. Early adoption is permitted. The Company will adopt this ASU for the year ending December 31, 2013. Adoption is not expected to have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-08, Testing Goodwill for Impairment . This ASU allows an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events or circumstances leads to a determination that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If, after assessing the totality of such events or circumstances, an entity determines it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, the entity will be required to perform the currently prescribed two-step goodwill impairment test. Otherwise, the two-step goodwill impairment test will not be required. ASU No. 2011-08 was effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011, and prospective application was required. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2012. Adoption did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income . This ASU eliminates the option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of changes in equity and requires an entity to present components of net income and other comprehensive income in one continuous statement, referred to as the statement of comprehensive income, or in two separate consecutive statements. ASU No. 2011-05 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011, which is January 1, 2012 for Avid, and retrospective application was required. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2012. While this ASU changes the presentation of comprehensive income, there are no changes to the components that are recognized in net income or other comprehensive income under current accounting guidance; therefore, adoption did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04, Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS . This ASU amends current U.S. GAAP fair value measurement and disclosure guidance to be consistent with International Financial Reporting Standards, including increased transparency around valuation inputs and the categorization by level of the fair value hierarchy for items that are not measured at fair value in the statement of financial position, but for which the fair value of such items is required to be disclosed. ASU No. 2011-04 is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and prospective application was required. The Company adopted this ASU on January 1, 2012. Adoption did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


2.
NET LOSS PER SHARE

Net loss per common share is presented for both basic loss per share (“Basic EPS”) and diluted loss per share (“Diluted EPS”). Basic EPS is based on the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding non-vested restricted stock held by employees. Diluted EPS is based on the weighted-average number of common shares and potential common shares outstanding during the period.

The following table sets forth (in thousands) potential common shares, on a weighted-average basis, that were considered anti-dilutive securities and excluded from the Diluted EPS calculations for the relevant periods either because the sum of the exercise price per share and the unrecognized compensation cost per share was greater than the average market price of the Company's common stock for the relevant period, or because they were considered contingently issuable. The contingently issuable potential common shares result from certain stock options and restricted stock units granted to the Company's executive officers that vest based on performance or market conditions.

FOREIGN CURRENCY FORWARD CONTRACTS

As a hedge against the foreign exchange exposure of certain forecasted receivables, payables and cash balances of foreign subsidiaries, the Company enters into short-term foreign currency forward contracts. The changes in fair value of the foreign currency forward contracts intended to offset foreign currency exchange risk on cash flows associated with net monetary assets are recorded as gains or losses in the Company's statement of operations in the period of change, because they do not meet the criteria of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging , to be treated as hedges for accounting purposes. There are two objectives of the Company's foreign currency forward contract program: (1) to offset any foreign currency exchange risk associated with cash receipts expected to be received from the Company's customers and cash payments expected to be made to the Company's vendors over the next 30-day period and (2) to offset the impact of foreign currency exchange on the Company's net monetary assets denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of the legal entity. These forward contracts typically mature within 30 days of execution.

At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , the Company had foreign currency forward contracts outstanding with notional values of $75.5 million and $69.1 million , respectively, as hedges against forecasted foreign-currency-denominated receivables, payables and cash balances. The following table sets forth the balance sheet locations and fair values of the Company's foreign currency forward contracts at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 (in thousands):

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

On a recurring basis, the Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value, including certain cash equivalents and foreign-currency forward contracts. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , all of the Company's financial assets and liabilities were classified as either Level 1 or Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy as defined by ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure . Assets and liabilities valued using quoted market prices in active markets and classified as Level 1 are certain deferred compensation investments and related obligations. Assets and liabilities valued based on other observable inputs and classified as Level 2 are foreign currency forward contracts and certain deferred compensation obligations.

The following tables summarize the Company's fair value hierarchy for its financial assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 (in thousands):

The fair values of level 1 benefit plan and deferred compensation assets and the corresponding obligations are determined using a market approach and are based on quoted market prices of the underlying securities. The fair values of level 2 benefit plan and deferred compensation assets are determined using an income approach based on observable inputs including the prices for recently traded financial instruments with similar underlying terms as well as directly or indirectly observable inputs, such as interest rates and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals. The fair values of level 2 benefit plan and deferred compensation liabilities are derived using valuation models, such as the projected unit credit method, with significant inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data, such as mortality and disability rates from published sources, for example the RT 2005 G mortality tables, and discount rates that are observable at commonly quoted intervals.

The fair values of foreign currency forward contracts are classified as level 2 in the fair value hierarchy and are measured at fair value on a recurring basis using an income approach based on observable inputs. The primary inputs used to fair value foreign currency forward contracts are published foreign currency exchange rates as of the date of valuation. See Note 3 for information on the Company's foreign currency forward contracts.


12



The carrying amounts of the Company's other financial assets and liabilities including cash, cash equivalents, accounts receivable, borrowings under revolving credit facilities, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their respective fair values because of the relatively short period of time between their origination and their expected realization.

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis

The Company's level 2 assets consist of held for sale assets. The Company classified its consumer businesses as held for sale and recorded the impairment as a loss on sale of assets held for sale within operating expenses. The current fair value reflects the sale proceeds under the asset purchase agreements relating to the divestitures that closed on July 2, 2012.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012 and the year ended December 31, 2011 , the Company recorded restructuring accruals associated with exiting all or portions of certain leased facilities and for revised estimates related to previously exited facilities. The Company estimates the fair value of such liabilities using an income approach based on observable inputs, including the remaining payments required under the existing lease agreements, utilities costs based on recent invoice amounts, and potential sublease receipts based on quoted market prices for similar sublease arrangements. The liabilities are discounted to net present value based on the Company's current borrowing rate. See Note 13 for further information on the Company's restructuring activities.

At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , finished goods inventory included $8.4 million and $7.2 million , respectively, associated with products shipped to customers and deferred labor costs for revenue arrangements that have not yet been recognized. In connection with the divestitures referenced in Note 7, during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 , approximately $10.8 million of inventory, including finished goods inventory and capitalized overhead, related to the consumer audio and consumer video product lines was reclassified to assets held-for-sale in our consolidated balance sheet and approximately $2.6 million of inventory to be disposed was recorded as a restructuring charge within cost of revenues.

7. ASSETS HELD-FOR-SALE

On July 2, 2012, the Company sold a group of consumer audio products and certain related intellectual property to Numark for approximately $11.8 million . The Company received $10.6 million of the purchase price in July 2012, with an additional $0.3 million expected to be received later in the third quarter of 2012 and the remaining balance to be held in escrow with a final release date in 2013. The divestiture met the criteria for held-for-sale accounting and the assets of this business were included as a single line item in the asset section of the condensed consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2012 . The Company determined that the consumer audio product line constituted a business, and, therefore, the assets held-for-sale of this business included an allocation of $6.3 million of goodwill from the Company's single reporting unit. Even though the consumer audio product line constituted a business, the Company determined that this business did not represent a component of the Company that would require the presentation of the divestiture as a discontinued operation. This decision was based on the fact that the consumer audio product line does not have operations or cash flows that are clearly distinguishable and largely independent from the rest of the Company's single reporting unit.

On July 2, 2012, the Company sold a group of consumer video products and certain related intellectual property to Corel for approximately $3.0 million . The Company received $2.4 million of the purchase price in the third quarter of 2012, with the remaining balance to be held in escrow with a final release date in 2014. The divestiture met the criteria for held-for-sale accounting and the assets of this business were included as a single line item in the asset section of the condensed consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2012 . The Company determined that the consumer video product line constituted a business, and, therefore, the assets held-for-sale of this business included an allocation of $1.7 million of goodwill from the Company's single reporting unit. Even though the consumer video product line constituted a business, the Company determined that this business did not represent a component of the Company that would require the presentation of the divestiture as a discontinued operation. This decision was based on the fact that the consumer video product line does not have operations or cash flows that are clearly distinguishable and largely independent from the rest of the Company's single reporting unit.

As of June 30, 2012 , the Company measured the assets held-for-sale at fair value less costs to sell. Accordingly, during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 , the Company recorded total estimated write-downs and costs to sell on the assets held-for-sale of approximately $10.0 million , within operating expenses, representing the excess of the aggregate carrying amount of such assets over the aggregate of their fair value plus costs to sell. As of June 30, 2012 , the total net assets that were classified as held-for-sale in connection with the consumer audio and consumer video divestitures were approximately $12.9 million . The assets held-for-sale as of June 30, 2012 and the related write-downs to fair value for each of the consumer audio and consumer video divestitures is as follows (in thousands):

(a)
The June 30, 2012 gross and net goodwill amounts include total foreign currency translation decreases of approximately $0.2 million from the December 31, 2011 amounts.

The Company performs a goodwill impairment analysis annually in the fourth quarter of each year, or whenever events and circumstances occur that indicate that the recorded goodwill may be impaired, in accordance with ASC Subtopic 350-20, Intangibles - Goodwill and Others - Goodwill, a two-step process is used to test for goodwill impairment. The first step determines if there is an indication of impairment by comparing the estimated fair value of each reporting unit to its carrying

16



value including existing goodwill. Upon an indication of impairment from the first step, a second step is performed to determine if goodwill impairment exists.

At September 30, 2011 , as a result of a decline in the Company's stock price since its fourth quarter 2010 goodwill impairment testing, lower than expected year-to-date 2011 revenues and operating results, and a reduction in forecasted 2011 results, the Company performed an interim step one goodwill impairment test. The interim step one test at September 30, 2011 indicated that the estimated fair value of the Company's single reporting unit (approximately $530 million ) exceeded its carrying value of $414.9 million by approximately 28% . Therefore, no goodwill impairment existed at September 30, 2011 , and the Company was not required to perform step two. In connection with its interim goodwill step one impairment test at September 30, 2011 , the Company weighted the direct market capitalization approach at 67% , the income approaches at 11% , the guideline public company market approaches at 11% , and the guideline transaction market approaches at 11% . The estimated fair value under the direct market capitalization approach was calculated by applying control premiums of approximately 45% to the Company's market capitalization. The Company's market capitalization was calculated using the average stock price of the Company's common stock for the 20 trading days prior to September 30, 2011 ( $8.73 per share). If the Company had used the closing stock price of its common stock on September 30, 2011 ( $7.74 per share) in the direct market capitalization described above and applied similar weightings described above, the estimated fair value of the Company's single reporting would have exceeded its carrying value by approximately 20% at September 30, 2011 . The Company's market capitalization based on the closing stock price at September 30, 2011 was approximately $298.3 million , compared to the carrying value of the Company's single reporting unit of $414.9 million . This implied a control premium of approximately 39% .

The Company's annual goodwill analyses performed in the fourth quarter of 2011 indicated there was no goodwill impairment at December 31, 2011 . The step one test at December 31, 2011 indicated that the estimated fair value of the Company's single reporting unit (approximately $506 million ) exceeded its carrying value of $417.0 million by approximately 21% . Therefore, no goodwill impairment existed at December 31, 2011 , and the Company was not required to perform step two. In connection with its annual goodwill step one impairment test at December 31, 2011 , the Company weighted the direct market capitalization approach at 67% , the income approaches at 11% , the guideline public company market approaches at 11% , and the guideline transaction market approaches at 11% . The estimated fair value under the direct market capitalization approach was calculated by applying control premiums of approximately 45% to the Company's market capitalization. The Company's market capitalization was calculated using the average stock price of the Company's common stock for the 20 trading days prior to December 31, 2011 ( $8.04 per share). If the Company used the closing stock price of its common stock on December 31, 2011 ( $8.53 per share), the last trading day in 2011, in the direct market capitalization described above and applied similar weightings described above, the estimated fair value of the Company's single reporting would have exceeded its carrying value by approximately 26% . The Company's market capitalization based on the closing stock price at December 31, 2011 was approximately $329.3 million , compared to the carrying value of the Company's single reporting unit of $417.0 million . This implied a control premium of approximately 27% .

At June 30, 2012 , as a result of the Company's planned divestiture of its consumer audio and video product lines, the Company performed an interim step one goodwill impairment test. Accordingly, after the allocation of goodwill to the assets held-for-sale, the Company performed an interim goodwill impairment analysis as of June 30, 2012 on the remaining goodwill in the Company's single reporting unit. The interim step one test at June 30, 2012 indicated that the estimated fair value of the Company's single reporting unit (approximately $443 million ) exceeded its carrying value of approximately $362 million by approximately 22% . Therefore, no goodwill impairment existed at June 30, 2012 , and the Company was not required to perform step two. In connection with its interim goodwill step one impairment test at June 30, 2012 , the Company weighted the direct market capitalization approach at 67% , the income approaches at 11% , the guideline public company market approaches at 11% , and the guideline transaction market approaches at 11% . The estimated fair value under the direct market capitalization approach was calculated by applying control premiums of approximately 45% to the Company's market capitalization. The Company's market capitalization was calculated using the average stock price of the Company's common stock for the 20 trading days prior to June 30, 2012 ( $7.06 per share). If the Company had used the closing stock price of its common stock on June 29, 2012 ( $7.43 per share) in the direct market capitalization described above and applied similar weightings described above, the estimated fair value of the Company's single reporting would have exceeded its carrying value by approximately 26% at June 30, 2012 . The Company's market capitalization based on the closing stock price at June 29, 2012 was approximately $288.4 million , compared to the carrying value of the Company's single reporting unit of $362.0 million . This implied a control premium of approximately 26% .

Amortization expense related to all intangible assets in the aggregate was $1.7 million and $2.8 million , respectively, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , and $4.0 million and $5.7 million , respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The Company expects amortization of these intangible assets to be approximately $3 million for the remainder of 2012 , $4 million in 2013 , $2 million in 2014 , $1 million in 2015 and $1 million in 2016 .

In connection with the Company's goodwill impairment test at September 30, 2011 and June 30, 2012, the Company performed an impairment analysis of its long-lived assets, including its intangible assets, in accordance with ASC Section 360-10-35, Property, Plant and Equipment - Overall - Subsequent Measurement . This analysis included grouping the intangible assets with other operating assets and liabilities that would not otherwise be subject to impairment testing because the grouped assets and liabilities represent the lowest level for which cash flows are largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets and liabilities within the Company. The analysis determined that the undiscounted cash flows of the long-lived assets were significantly greater than their carrying value, indicating no impairment existed.

Capitalized Software Development Costs

In accordance with ASC Subtopic 985-20, Software - Costs of Software to be Sold, Leased or Marketed, the Company is required to capitalize certain costs of internally developed or externally purchased software. Capitalized software costs included in “other assets” consisted of the following at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 (in thousands):

CONTINGENCIES

At June 30, 2012 , the Company was subject to various litigations claiming patent infringement by the Company.  If any infringement is determined to exist, the Company may seek licenses or settlements. At this time, the Company believes that a loss is neither probable nor remote, and based on the information currently available regarding these legal proceedings, the Company is unable to determine an estimate, or range of estimates, of potential losses. 

In addition, as a normal incidence of the nature of the Company's business, various claims, charges and litigation have been asserted or commenced from time to time against the Company arising from or related to contractual, employee relations, intellectual property rights, product performance, or other matters.  Management is not aware of any such current claims that will have a material adverse effect on the financial position or results of operation of the Company. Also, in connection with the 2012 Plan and the sale of certain assets to Numark and Corel, various claims have been asserted, and unasserted claims may exist,

19



against the Company from or related to contractual, employee relations, or other matters. At this time, the Company believes that a loss in excess of recorded accruals and allowances related to the 2012 Plan and the divestitures is neither probable nor remote, and based on the information currently available regarding these claims, the Company is unable to determine an estimate, or range of estimates, of potential losses above the recorded accruals and allowances. See Notes 13 and 5 for the amounts recorded as accruals and allowances related to the 2012 Plan and the divestitures of the consumer audio and consumer video product lines.

Additionally, the Company provides indemnification to certain customers for losses incurred in connection with intellectual property infringement claims brought by third parties with respect to the Company's products.  These indemnification provisions generally offer perpetual coverage for infringement claims based upon the products covered by the agreement and the maximum potential amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these indemnification provisions is theoretically unlimited.  To date, the Company has not incurred material costs related to these indemnification provisions; accordingly, the Company believes the estimated fair value of these indemnification provisions is immaterial. 

Further, certain of the Company's arrangements with customers include clauses whereby the Company may be subject to penalties for failure to meet certain performance obligations; however, the Company has not recorded any related material penalties to date. 

The Company's Canadian subsidiary, Avid Technology Canada Corporation, was assessed and paid to the Ministry of Revenue Quebec (“MRQ”) approximately CAN $1.7 million for social tax assessments on Canadian employee stock-based compensation related to the Company's stock plans. The Company is currently attempting to recover the payments against these assessments through litigation with the MRQ. The payment amounts were recorded in “other current assets” in the Company's consolidated balance sheets at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 . Because the Company cannot predict the outcome of the litigation at this time or the amount of potential losses, if any, no costs have been accrued for any loss contingency; however, this matter is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

As permitted under Delaware law and pursuant to the Company's Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, the Company is obligated to indemnify its current and former officers and directors for certain events that occur or occurred while the officer or director is or was serving in such capacity. The term of the indemnification period is for each respective officer's or director's lifetime. The maximum potential amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these indemnification obligations is unlimited; however, the Company has mitigated the exposure through the purchase of directors and officers insurance, which is intended to limit the risk and, in most cases, enable the Company to recover all or a portion of any future amounts paid. As a result of this insurance coverage, the Company believes the estimated fair value of these indemnification obligations is minimal.

The Company has letters of credit at a bank that are used as security deposits in connection with the Company's Burlington, Massachusetts office space. In the event of default on the underlying leases, the landlords would, at June 30, 2012 , be eligible to draw against the letters of credit to a maximum of $2.6 million in the aggregate. The letters of credit are subject to aggregate reductions of approximately $0.4 million at the end of each of the second, third and fifth years, provided the Company is not in default of the underlying leases and meets certain financial performance conditions. In no case will the letters of credit amounts be reduced to below $1.3 million in the aggregate throughout the lease periods, all of which extend to May 2020. At June 30, 2012 , the Company was not in default of any of the underlying leases.

The Company also has a standby letter of credit at a bank that is used as a security deposit in connection with the Company's Daly City, California office space lease. In the event of default on this lease, the landlord would, at June 30, 2012 , be eligible to draw against this letter of credit to a maximum of $0.8 million . The letter of credit will remain in effect at this amount throughout the remaining lease period, which extends to September 2014. At June 30, 2012 , the Company was not in default of this lease.

The Company also has additional letters of credit totaling approximately $3.7 million that support its ongoing operations. These letters of credit have various terms and expire during 2012 and 2013. Some of the letters of credit may automatically renew based on the terms of the underlying agreements.

The Company provides warranties on externally sourced and internally developed hardware and software. For internally developed hardware and in cases where the warranty granted to customers for externally sourced hardware is greater than that provided by the manufacturer, the Company records an accrual for the related liability based on historical trends and actual material and labor costs. For software, the Company records an accrual for the costs of providing bug fixes. The warranty period for all of the Company's products is generally 90 days to one year , but can extend up to five years depending on the manufacturer's warranty or local law.

Stock-Based Compensation Expense

The Company estimates forfeiture rates at the time awards are made based on historical turnover rates and applies these rates in the calculation of estimated compensation cost. At June 30, 2012 , the Company's annualized estimated forfeiture rates were 0% for non-employee director awards, 10% for executive management awards and 10% for awards to all other employees.

Stock-based compensation was included in the following captions in the Company's consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively (in thousands):

As a result of the 2012 restructuring plan certain time based stock options and restricted stock unit awards will be accelerated resulting in $1.0 million of expense which was offset by $2.1 million of reduced expense due to the forfeiture of performance based options and restricted stock units. The net effect to operating expenses was a benefit of $1.1 million within Marketing and selling expenses in the Company's consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 . At June 30, 2012 , there was approximately $25 million of total unrecognized compensation cost, before forfeitures, related to non-vested stock-based compensation awards granted under the Company's stock-based compensation plans.

RESTRUCTURING COSTS AND ACCRUALS

2012 Restructuring Plan

During the three months ended June 30, 2012 , in connection with the 2012 Plan, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $14.6 million related to severance costs and $0.3 million for facility costs, respectively. The Company expects to record additional restructuring cost of $5 million to $8 million under the 2012 Plan, mostly related to the closure or partial closure of facilities. The Company expects to complete all actions under the 2012 Plan prior to December 31, 2012 .

2011 Restructuring Plan

In October 2011, the Company committed to a restructuring plan (the “2011 Plan”) intended to improve operational efficiencies. Actions under the 2011 Plan included the elimination of approximately 190 positions and the closure of the Company's facility in Irwindale, CA. During 2011, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $9.1 million related to severance costs and $0.5 million for the closure of the Irwindale facility, which included non-cash amounts totaling $0.1 million for fixed asset write-offs. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 , the Company recorded restructuring revisions of approximately $0.2 million for additional estimated severance obligations. To date the Company has recorded total restructuring charges of approximately $9.8 million under the 2011 Plan. No further restructuring actions are anticipated under this plan.

2010 Restructuring Plans
 
In December 2010, the Company initiated a worldwide restructuring plan (the “2010 Plan”) designed to better align financial and human resources in accordance with its strategic plans for the 2011 fiscal year.  During the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $9.2 million related to severance costs for the elimination of 145 positions and $1.4 million for the partial closure of a facility. During 2011, the Company revised its previously recorded estimates of severance costs resulting in a restructuring benefit of $1.5 million and also recorded a restructuring charge of $0.3 million for the revised estimate of the costs associated with the partial facility closure. The severance revisions primarily resulted from the final severance negotiations for certain European employees, as well as the transferring of certain employees into alternative positions at Avid. During 2011, the Company also recorded facilities restructuring charges of approximately $1.0 million related to the closure of a facility in Germany, which included non-cash amounts totaling $0.1 million for fixed asset write offs. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 , the Company recorded additional facilities restructuring charges of approximately $0.2 million for revised estimate of the costs associated with a previously closed facility. To date, total restructuring charges of approximately $10 million has been recorded under the 2010 Plan, and no further restructuring actions are anticipated under this plan.

During 2010, the Company also initiated acquisition-related restructuring actions and recorded related 2010 and 2011 restructuring charges of $2.0 million for the severance costs for 24 former Euphonix employees and the closure of three Euphonix facilities. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 , the Company recorded additional facilities restructuring charges of approximately $0.2 million for a revised estimate of the costs associated with a previously closed facility. No further restructuring actions are anticipated under this plan.

2008 Restructuring Plan

In October 2008, the Company initiated a company-wide restructuring plan (the “2008 Plan”) that included a reduction in force of approximately 820 positions, including employees related to product line divestitures, and the closure of all or parts of eighteen facilities worldwide. During the fourth quarter of 2008 and in 2009, 2010 and 2011, the Company recorded total restructuring charges of $35.2 million related to employee termination costs, $12.8 million for the closure of facilities, $2.7 million related to the write-down of inventory and $4.3 million for revisions to previous estimates. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 , the Company recorded restructuring charges of $0.5 million for a revised estimate of the costs associated with a previously closed facility. No further restructuring actions are anticipated under the 2008 Plan.

Accounting for Restructuring Plans

The Company records facility-related restructuring charges in accordance with ASC Topic 420, Liabilities: Exit or Disposal Cost Obligations . Based on the Company's policies for the calculation and payment of severance benefits, the Company accounts for employee-related restructuring charges as an ongoing benefit arrangement in accordance with ASC Topic 712, Compensation - Nonretirement Postemployment Benefits . Restructuring charges and accruals require significant estimates and assumptions,

24



including sub-lease income assumptions. These estimates and assumptions are monitored on at least a quarterly basis for changes in circumstances and any corresponding adjustments to the accrual are recorded in the Company's statement of operations in the period when such changes are known.

The employee-related accruals at June 30, 2012 represent severance and outplacement costs to former employees that will be paid out within the next twelve months and are, therefore, included in the caption “accrued expenses and other current liabilities” in the Company's consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2012 . In connection with the divestitures referenced in Note 7, during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 , approximately $2.6 million of inventory to be disposed from the divestiture of certain consumer audio and video product lines was recorded as a restructuring charge within cost of revenues.

The facilities-related accruals at June 30, 2012 represent estimated losses, net of subleases, on space vacated as part of the Company's restructuring actions. The leases, and payments against the amounts accrued, extend through 2017 unless the Company is able to negotiate earlier terminations. Of the total facilities-related accruals, $2.8 million is included in the caption “accrued expenses and other current liabilities” and $2.9 million is included in the caption “long-term liabilities” in the Company's consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2012 .

CREDIT AGREEMENT

On October 1, 2010, Avid Technology, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (the “Borrowers”) entered into a Credit Agreement with Wells Fargo Capital Finance LLC (“Wells Fargo”), which established two revolving credit facilities with combined maximum availability of up to $60 million for borrowings and letter of credit guarantees. The actual amount of credit available to the Borrowers will vary depending upon changes in the level of the respective accounts receivable and inventory, and is subject to other terms and conditions which are more specifically described in the Credit Agreement. The credit facilities have a maturity date of October 1, 2014, at which time Wells Fargo's commitments to provide additional credit will terminate and all outstanding borrowings by the Borrowers must be repaid. Prior to the maturity of the credit facilities, any amounts borrowed may be repaid and, subject to the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, reborrowed in whole or in part without penalty.

The Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties, covenants, mandatory prepayments, and events of default under which the Borrowers' payment obligations may be accelerated, including guarantees and liens on substantially all of the Borrowers' assets to secure their obligations under the Credit Agreement. The Credit Agreement requires that Avid Technology, Inc. (“Avid Technology”) maintain liquidity (comprised of unused availability under its portion of the credit facilities plus certain unrestricted cash and cash equivalents) of $10 million, at least $5 million of which must be from unused availability under its portion of the credit facilities. In addition, its subsidiary, Avid Technology International B.V. (“Avid Europe”), is required to maintain liquidity (comprised of unused availability under Avid Europe's portion of the credit facilities plus certain unrestricted cash and cash equivalents) of $5 million, at least $2.5 million of which must be from unused availability under Avid Europe's portion of the credit facilities. Interest accrues on outstanding borrowings under the credit facilities at a rate of either LIBOR plus 2.75% or a base rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 1.75%, at the option of Avid Technology or Avid Europe, as applicable. The Borrowers must also pay Wells Fargo a monthly unused line fee at a rate of 0.625%  per annum.

The Company incurs certain loan fees and costs associated with its credit facilities. Such costs are capitalized as deferred borrowing costs and amortized as interest expense on a straight-line basis over the term of the Credit Agreement. At June 30, 2012 , the balance of the Company's deferred borrowing costs was $0.7 million , which is net of accumulated amortization costs of $0.5 million .

During the three months ended June 30, 2012 and at June 30, 2012 , Avid Technology had no borrowings under the credit line. At June 30, 2012 , Avid Technology and Avid Europe had letters of credit guaranteed under the credit facilities of $3.7 million and $3.2 million , respectively, and available borrowings under the credit facilities of approximately $31.3 million and $13.9 million , respectively, after taking into consideration the outstanding letters of credit and related liquidity covenant. At June 30, 2012 , the Borrowers were in compliance with all covenants under the credit facilities. The Borrowers may borrow against the line of credit above the current outstanding borrowings to cover short-term cash requirements during 2012 as may be required to meet the funding needs of the business.

16.  INCOME TAXES

Our effective tax rate, which represents our tax provision as a percentage of loss before tax, was 3% and 2% , respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.  Our provision for income taxes for the 2012 period increased by approximately $1.1 million from the 2011 period, primarily as a result of changes in the jurisdictional mix of earnings and increased profits in our foreign jurisdictions in which we record a tax provision.  During the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 , there was a net discrete tax benefit of approximately $0.2 million related to a $3.8 million benefit for a refund claim related to a previously accrued Canadian withholding tax liability and a $0.6 million benefit for a release of a tax reserve, partially offset by a $2.0 million withholding tax liability on an anticipated Canadian dividend, a $1.4 million tax provision associated with an Irish income tax audit, a $0.5 million tax provision associated with a change in the Company's indefinite reinvestment assertion with respect to its Canadian subsidiary, and the establishment of a valuation allowance against certain foreign deferred tax assets of $0.3 million .  By comparison, during the six-month period ended June 30, 2011 , there were no significant discrete items that impacted the tax provision.  No benefit is provided for losses generated in the United States and Ireland due to the full valuation allowance on the respective deferred tax assets.

We have significant net deferred tax assets which are primarily a result of tax credits and operating loss carryforwards.  The realization of the net deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of sufficient future taxable income in the applicable tax jurisdictions.   We regularly review our deferred tax assets for recoverability with consideration for such factors as historical losses, projected future taxable income, the expected timing of the reversals of existing temporary differences, and tax planning strategies.  FASB ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes, requires us to record a valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  Based on our level of deferred tax assets at June 30, 2012 and our level of historical U.S. and certain foreign losses, we have determined that the uncertainty regarding the realization of these assets is sufficient to warrant the need for a full valuation allowance against our U.S. net deferred tax assets and certain foreign deferred tax assets.

We file in multiple tax jurisdictions and from time to time are subject to audit in certain tax jurisdictions, but we believe that we are adequately reserved for these exposures.  ASC Topic 740 requires that a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained before being recognized in the financial statements.  It also requires the accrual of interest and penalties as applicable on unrecognized tax positions.  At June 30, 2012 , our unrecognized tax benefits and related accrued interest and penalties totaled $13.9 million , of which $0.1 million would affect our effective tax rate if recognized. At December 31, 2011 , our unrecognized tax benefits and related accrued interest and penalties totaled $12.9 million , of which $0.9 million would affect our effective tax rate if recognized.  The increase in our unrecognized tax benefits since December 31, 2011 was the result of a $1.7 million increase related to uncertain tax positions embedded in our domestic tax loss carryforwards.  This increase did not have an impact on the effective tax rate because we had previously maintained a full valuation allowance on the tax loss carryforwards.  This increase was partially offset by a decrease of $0.6 million related to a reserve release resulting from the closure of a tax examination during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 and a decrease of $0.1 million related to a reserve release resulting from the expiration of the statute of limitations on a foreign tax reserve during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 .

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

EXECUTIVE OVERVIEW

Our Company

We are a leading provider of digital media content-creation products and solutions for audio, film, video, broadcast professionals, as well as artists and musicians. Our audio and video solutions are designed to be extensions of the people using them, so that they amplify creativity, speed production processes and provide the science behind the art of making great creative experiences. We have historically provided our products and solutions to customers in three market segments: Media Enterprises segment, which consists of broadcast, government, sports and other organizations that acquire, create, process, and/or distribute audio and video content to a large audience for communication, entertainment, analysis, and/or forensic purposes; Professionals and Post segment, which is composed of individual artists and entities that create audio and video media as a paid service, but who do not distribute media to end consumers on a large scale; and Creative Enthusiasts segment, which is made up of individuals who are music, film or video enthusiasts with varying degrees of involvement in content creation, ranging from casual users to dedicated hobbyists, including amateur musicians, disc jockeys and “prosumers.” As described below, on July 2, 2012, we announced a series of strategic actions, including divestitures of certain of our consumer audio and video product lines, to focus on our Media

28



Enterprise and Professionals and Post market segments.

Our mission is to inspire passion, unleash creativity and enable our customers to realize their dreams in a digital world. We do this by helping anyone with a passion for making music, movies, video and television, by providing both the technology and the expertise that power those experiences. Customers use our solutions to create the most listened to, most watched and loved media in the world. Around the globe, feature films, primetime television shows, news programs, commercials, live performances and chart-topping music hits are made using one or more of our solutions.

On July 2, 2012, as a result of a strategic review of Avid's business and the markets we serve, we announced a series of strategic actions that we had initiated to focus on our Media Enterprise and Professionals and Post market segments and to drive improved operating performance. These actions include the divestiture of certain of our consumer focused product lines, a rationalization of our business operations and a reduction in force. We believe that these actions will generate several advantages for us as they will allow us to focus on the Media Enterprise and Professionals and Post market segments, the markets where we expect the highest growth. In addition we expect these actions will reduce complexity of our operations, improve operational efficiencies, and allow us to change our cost structure, by moving away from lower growth, lower margin sectors to drive improved financial performance.

As part of these actions, on July 2, 2012, we announced that we had sold a group of consumer audio products to Numark Industries, L.P. (“Numark”) for approximately $11.8 million and sold a group of consumer video products to Corel Corporation (“Corel”) for approximately $3.0 million . The consumer audio products that were sold include M-Audio brand keyboards, controllers, certain interfaces, speakers and digital DJ equipment and other product lines, as well as certain associated intellectual property, including the M-Audio trademark. We will continue to develop and sell our Pro Tools line of software and hardware, as well as certain associated I/O devices including Mbox and Fast Track. The consumer video products that were sold include the Pinnacle and Avid Studio range of software and hardware. This includes Avid's Studio and Pinnacle Studio desktop editing software and the Avid studio for the iPad as well as legacy video capture offerings and certain associated intellectual property including the Pinnacle trademark. Total revenues for 2011 from these divested product lines was approximately $91.0 million , or 13% of our consolidated net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011 .

Also as part of these actions, on July 2, 2012 we announced a reduction in our work force in line with the strategic shift in our business. The reduction in force due to head count reduction plans and certain employees transferring to the acquiring companies will impact approximately 20% of our permanent employees. We anticipate that we will complete the reduction in force and related actions prior to December 31, 2012. We expect to incur total expenses relating to termination benefits and facility costs associated with the reduction in force and related actions of approximately $20 million to $23 million , which primarily represent cash expenditures. During the quarter ended June 30, 2012 , we recorded restructuring charges of approximately $14.9 million under this plan. We expect to take additional charges of $5 million to $8 million in the second half of 2012 mostly related to closure or partial closure of facilities. The proceeds from the divestitures of the consumer product lines are expected to offset most of the cash restructuring charges paid in 2012.

In aggregate, we expect to realize estimated annualized cost savings, excluding product material cost, from both the restructuring actions and the consumer product line divestitures of approximately $80 million. These savings will appear in each of our cost of sales and operating expenses lines in our statement of operations. In addition, since the product material margin from these divested product lines was lower than the average material margin for our ongoing products, we expect overall gross margins to improve in the second half of 2012 and further improve in 2013 due to favorable product mix and our cost reduction efforts.
We remain firmly committed to the professional markets and the devices and control services that support the Media Enterprise and Professionals and Post customers. These strategic actions described above will enable us to focus effectively on our core business as the leading provider of video and audio content-creations and management solutions for these professional markets.

See Note 7, Assets Held-for-Sale, and Note 13, Restructuring Costs and Accruals, to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional details and the related accounting for these consumer product line divestitures and the 2012 restructuring plan. See also the Results of Operations section below for additional information on revenue from divested product lines and expected trends.

Revisions to Prior Period Amounts

While preparing our financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2012, we identified and corrected certain errors related to the accounting for an intercompany note made between two of our international subsidiaries that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2007. We determined that we should have accrued withholding taxes of approximately $3.8 million at the time of the

29



loan, and as a result, we had understated the provision for income taxes in 2007 and income taxes payable reported on our balance sheets for each period subsequent to the transaction. Additionally, as the tax was not withheld and paid to the taxing authority, we are subject to interest and penalties on the unpaid balance, commencing in the three months ended March 31, 2009 and for subsequent periods. Interest and penalties totaled approximately $1.1 million ($0.7 million interest and $0.4 million penalties) and $1.0 million ($0.6 million interest and $0.4 million penalties) at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 , respectively. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded a discrete tax benefit of approximately $3.8 million when it determined that it would repay the intercompany note and file a refund claim for the withholding taxes due (see Note 16). In addition, upon repayment of the intercompany note, we will request a refund from the taxing authority for any penalties paid under a voluntary compliance approach, although there can be no assurance that a refund of the penalties will be obtained.

In accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") Staff Accounting Bulletin Nos. 99 and 108 (“SAB 99” and “SAB 108”), we evaluated these errors and, based on an analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors, determined that they were immaterial to each of the prior reporting periods affected and, therefore, amendment of previously filed reports with the SEC was not required. However, if the adjustments to correct the cumulative effect of the aforementioned errors and other previously unrecorded immaterial errors had been recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2012, we believe the impact would have been significant and would impact comparisons to prior periods. Therefore, as required by SAB 108, we have revised in our Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2012 previously reported financial information for each quarter of 2011 and for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. In addition to correcting these withholding tax errors, we recorded other adjustments to prior period amounts to correct other previously unrecorded immaterial errors. Also, in accordance with SAB 108, we will include this revised financial information when we file subsequent reports on Form 10-Q and Form 10-K or file a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

The Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 have been revised to reflect the effect of the withholding tax errors described above and the other immaterial errors and is presented herein. See Note 1 to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional information on these revisions.

The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2011 has been revised to reflect the cumulative effect of the errors described above and other immaterial errors and are presented herein. See Note 1 to our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for additional information on these revisions.
 
The adjustments to the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for each period resulted in immaterial changes to the amounts previously reported for net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, investing activities and financing activities in these periods.

Total net revenues for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 were $157.4 million , a decrease of $4.4 million compared to the same period in 2011, with revenues from products decreasing by 5.0% and services revenues increasing by 6.5% . During the three months ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same period in 2011, video products revenues increased by $3.4 million and audio products revenues decreased by $7.0 million , while services revenues increased $2.1 million . Total net revenues for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 were $309.6 million, a decrease of $18.0 million compared to the same period in 2011, with revenues from products decreasing by 8.7% and services revenues increasing by 8.7%. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same period in 2011, video products revenues and audio products revenues decreased by $9.7 million and $10.7 million, respectively, while services revenues increased $5.3 million. Included within net revenues for each of the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 is approximately $2.8 million for estimated sales returns related to the July 2, 2012 announcement of the divestiture of the consumer audio and consumer video product lines. The decreases in products revenues were largely driven by weakness in sales of our consumer products to creative enthusiast customers, the timing of new product introductions and product transitions. We divested our consumer product lines on July 2, 2012. Excluding the revenues from divested product lines, net revenues from the ongoing business increased 4.7% and were flat for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , respectively, compared to the same periods in 2011. The increase in our services revenues was primarily the result of increased maintenance revenues, driven by new maintenance contracts and strong contract renewal rates. Since 2010, we began to include maintenance contracts with certain product sales, which has had a positive effect on our maintenance revenues. The changes in revenues are discussed in further detail in the section titled “Results of Operations” below.

The following table sets forth the percentage of our net revenues attributable to geographic regions for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011:

Our gross margin percentage for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 decreased to 46.5% and 48.7%,

31



respectively, compared to 50.9% and 51.8%, respectively, for the same period in 2011. This change was driven by a decrease in products gross margin percentage to 47.1% and 48.0% for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, respectively, compared to 50.6% and 52.0% for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2011, respectively. These decreases were partially offset by increases in services gross margin percentage to 58.4% and 59.4% for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, compared to 54.5% and 53.1% for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in our products gross margin percentage for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same periods in 2011, was largely driven by the decrease in our products revenues on relatively fixed costs for manufacturing and logistics, a shift in product mix weighted toward some lower margin products and the initiation of incentive promotions to sell certain of our older products that are at end of life or transitioning to new versions. As a result of the consumer product line divestitures and cost reduction efforts, we expect overall gross margins to improve in the second half of 2012. The increase in our services gross margin percentage for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same periods in 2011, was largely driven by the increase in services revenues from maintenance contracts, which have higher gross margins than professional services and training.

For the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 , we incurred a net loss of $39.2 million , compared to a net loss of $11.1 million for the same period in 2011. The increase in net loss was largely a result of our 2012 restructuring plan and loss on assets held-for-sale for the consumer product line divestitures announced on July 2, 2012. The net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2012 included charges of $1.7 million for acquisition-related intangible asset amortization; restructuring costs of $18.5 million ; and loss on assets held-for-sale of $10.0 million. The net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2011 included $2.8 million for acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, partially offset by restructuring recoveries of $0.2 million .

During October 2011, we committed to a restructuring plan, the 2011 Plan, intended to improve operational efficiencies. Actions under the 2011 Plan included a reduction in force of approximately 190 employees and the closure of our facility in Irwindale, CA. These actions were intended to allow us to continue to invest in our core businesses, as well as shift some resources into areas of the business that we believe offer us better revenue growth potential. During 2011, we recorded restructuring charges of $9.1 million related to severance costs and $0.5 million related to the Irwindale closure. During the three months ended June 30, 2012 , we recorded restructuring revisions of approximately $0.2 million for reductions of the estimated severance obligations. To date, total restructuring charges of approximately $9.8 million have been recorded under the 2011 Plan, and no further restructuring actions are anticipated under this plan.

At June 30, 2012 , our cash balance was $59.4 million , an increase of $26.5 million from December 31, 2011 , and we had no borrowings against our lines of credit. We continue to see reductions in our inventory balances and, at June 30, 2012 , our days sales outstanding in accounts receivable was 51 days, which is consistent with historical levels.


CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

Our management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We make estimates and assumptions in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. However, actual results may differ from these estimates.

We believe that our critical accounting policies are those related to revenue recognition and allowances for product returns and exchanges; stock-based compensation; the valuation of business combinations, goodwill and intangible assets; divestitures; and income tax assets and liabilities. We believe these policies are critical because they most significantly affect the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations and involve our most difficult and subjective estimates and judgments. Our critical accounting policies may be found in our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K in Item 7, “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” under the heading “Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates”, except for our critical accounting policy on divestitures, which is included below.

Divestitures
In accordance with FASB ASC No. 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment , we classify the assets and liabilities of a business as held-for-sale when management approves and commits to a formal plan of sale and it is probable that the sale will be completed. The carrying value of the net assets of the business held-for-sale are then recorded at the lower of their carrying value or fair

32



market value, less costs to sell, and we cease to record depreciation and amortization expense associated with assets held-for-sale. As discussed in Note 7 to our Consolidated Financial Statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we completed the sales of the consumer audio and consumer video product lines in the third quarter of 2012. Assets with a fair value of $14.8 million , less costs to sell of $1.9 million, were classified as held-for-sale in our consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 .
When we measure the gain (loss) on sale of a disposal group that is part of a reporting unit, we determine whether a portion of the goodwill of the reporting unit should be allocated to the disposal group if it constitutes a business. If the disposal group is considered a business, the goodwill of the reporting unit is allocated based on the relative fair values of the disposal group and the portion of the reporting unit remaining. We determined that the consumer audio and consumer video product lines each constituted a business; therefore, the estimated loss on assets held-for-sale of each of these businesses includes an allocation of $6.4 million and $1.6 million, respectively, of goodwill from our single reporting unit. Even though it was determined that the consumer audio and consumer video product lines constituted a business, we concluded that these businesses did not represent a component of our company that would require the presentation of the divestiture as discontinued operations. We made this determination based on the fact that the consumer audio and consumer video product lines do not have operations or cash flows that are clearly distinguishable and largely independent from the rest of our single reporting unit.

Video Products Revenues

Video products revenues increased $3.4 million, or 5.2%, for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, and decreased $9.7 million, or 7.4%, for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to the same period in 2011. Revenues from our professional video-editing solutions and our consumer video-editing products decreased during each of these periods. Revenues from our storage and workflow solutions and broadcast newsroom products increased during each of

34



these periods. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 , our professional video-editing solutions unit sales increased by more than 30%, but revenues decreased as a result of an overall shift from hardware-based to software-only solutions that have significantly lower unit prices. The 2011 period benefited from successful video-editing hardware upgrade promotions. We experienced a decrease in our consumer video-editing revenues due to lower unit sales as a result of continued weakness in the consumer video-editing market in the 2012 period. We divested our consumer video-editing product lines on July 2, 2012. Video products revenues increased in Europe, decreased in the Americas and remained relatively flat in the Asia-Pacific region during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same period in 2011. For the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 , video product revenues decreased in the Americas, and increased in the Europe and Asia-Pacific regions, compared to the same period in 2011.

Audio Products Revenues

The $7.0 million , or 10.8% , decrease and $10.7 million, or 7.9%, decrease in our audio products revenues for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , respectively, compared to the same periods in 2011, were largely the result of decreased revenues from our audio consumer products, partially offset by increased revenues from our Pro Tools HD solutions. We continued to see decreases in revenues from our audio consumer business, which include speakers, MIDI controllers and several of our recording and I/O product lines. We divested certain of our consumer audio product lines on July 2, 2012. During the first six months of 2012, we experienced strong demand for our high-end Pro Tools HD solutions and the associated HDX hardware introduced in the fourth quarter of 2011. Revenues from live-sound systems continued to be strong on increased volumes. Audio products revenues decreased in Europe and the Americas and increased in the Asia-Pacific region during the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same periods in 2011.

Services Revenues

Services revenues are derived primarily from maintenance contracts, as well as professional and integration services and training. The $2.1 million , or 6.5% , increase and $5.3 million, or 8.7%, increase in services revenues for three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , respectively, compared to the same periods in 2011, were primarily the result of increased maintenance revenues, driven by new maintenance contracts and strong contract renewal rates. Since 2010, we began to bundle maintenance contracts with certain product sales. While this has had a positive effect on our current maintenance revenues, the effect on future maintenance revenues will depend on the level of renewal rates on these contracts. Services revenues increased in all regions during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same period in 2011.


COST OF REVENUES, GROSS PROFIT AND GROSS MARGIN PERCENTAGE

Cost of revenues consists primarily of costs associated with:

the procurement of components and finished goods;
the assembly, testing and distribution of finished products;
warehousing;
customer support costs related to maintenance contract revenues and other services;
royalties for third-party software and hardware included in our products;
amortization of technology; and
providing professional services and training.

Amortization of technology represents the amortization of developed technology assets acquired as part of acquisitions and is described further in the Amortization of Intangible Assets section below.

Gross Margin Percentage

Gross margin percentage fluctuates based on factors such as the mix of products sold, the cost and proportion of third-party hardware and software included in the systems sold, the offering of product upgrades, price discounts and other sales-promotion programs, the distribution channels through which products are sold, the timing of new product introductions, sales of aftermarket hardware products such as disk drives, and currency exchange-rate fluctuations. Gross margin was negatively impacted during the first half of 2012 due to lower margins on consumer video and audio products, as well as additional sales and returns allowances directly attributed to those divested businesses. Service gross margins improved in 2012 periods. We expect to see improvements in gross margin for the second half of 2012 as a result of the consumer product line divestitures.

The decreases in our products gross margin percentage for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same periods in 2011, were largely driven by the decrease in our products revenues on relatively fixed costs for manufacturing and logistics and the initiation of incentive promotions to sell certain of our older products that are at end of life or transitioning to new versions.

The increases in our services gross margin percentage for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012 , compared to the same periods in 2011, were driven by the increase in services revenues from maintenance contracts, which have higher gross margins than professional services and training. As mentioned previously, during 2010 we began to bundle maintenance contracts with certain product sales, which has had a positive effect on our maintenance revenues.

Research and Development Expenses

Research and development, or R&D, expenses include costs associated with the development of new products and the enhancement of existing products, and consist primarily of employee salaries and benefits; facilities costs; depreciation; costs for consulting and temporary employees; and prototype and other development expenses. R&D expenses decreased $3.6 million and $6.0 million, or 11.7% and 10.0%, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 , respectively, compared to the corresponding periods in 2011. As a result of the Company's cost reduction plans and the divestiture of the consumer product lines, we expect further reductions in research and development expenses for the second half of 2012.
