    Highlands, N.J., VFW to Benefit From Volunteer Project Hosted by Verizon, HGTV/DIY Network and 'Rebuilding Together'HGTV Design Star Winner Tiffany Brooks to Join More Than 30 Volunteers to Repair Sandy-Damaged VFW Hall

    HIGHLANDS, N.J., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the Highlands Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6902, the impact of Superstorm Sandy still lingers more than a year later. The post's hall, located at 331 Bay Ave., sustained severe flood damage from the storm and continues to recover.

    With Veteran's Day approaching, the VFW hall's renovation will get a boost on Friday (Nov. 8) through a special volunteer project organized by the Verizon Foundation, Scripps Networks Interactive and Rebuilding Together that will include a special appearance by interior designer Tiffany Brooks, winner of this season's "HGTV Star."

    More than 30 volunteers from Verizon, Scripps Networks Interactive, Rebuilding Together and the local community will meet at the VFW hall from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to paint interior walls and railings, handicap ramps and front steps at the building's entrance; replace damaged ceiling tiles in the hall; and remove weeds and clear debris from around the property.

    Local officials -- including Highlands Mayor Frank Nolan, Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone and U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (6(th) Congressional District of New Jersey) -- will meet with the volunteers during an 11 a.m. break to thank them for their efforts.

    "Superstorm Sandy affected everyone in New Jersey in some way, and this project gives our employees an opportunity to get involved with the community and to get the Highlands VFW back into shape," said Jayne Mayer, Verizon Foundation employee engagement director. "This partnership with Scripps Networks Interactive and Rebuilding Together also allows us to give back to the veterans who have proudly served our country."

    Scripps Networks Interactive, whose media brands include HGTV and DIY Network, is a leading developer of lifestyle-oriented content for television, the Internet and emerging platforms. Rebuilding Together is a non-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding homes and communities nationwide. As of October, hard-working Rebuilding Together affiliates in New Jersey and New York have completed more than 250 projects, assisting more than 435 individuals, thanks to the help of more than 3,100 volunteers.

    Annette L. Brun, vice president, cause marketing and social responsibility for Scripps Networks Interactive, said, "Even one year after Superstorm Sandy, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. It's a blessing to communities like Highlands to have organizations like Rebuilding Together and Verizon volunteer their time and resources to help bring residents of this beautiful seaside community some much needed relief. HGTV and DIY Network are proud to be part of this effort."

    Verizon employees, Verizon Wireless customers and the Verizon Foundation have donated more than $6 million to Sandy relief and rebuilding efforts. In addition, more than 7,000 Verizon employees have donated to the American Red Cross and Salvation Army through the Verizon Foundation's matching gifts program.

    The Verizon Foundation is focused on accelerating social change by using the company's innovative technology to help solve pressing problems in education, healthcare and energy management. Since 2000, the Verizon Foundation has invested more than half a billion dollars to improve the communities where Verizon employees work and live. Verizon's employees are generous with their donations and their time, having logged more than 6.8 million hours of service to make a positive difference in their communities.

    Charlotte Area Hospice Uses Technology to Improve Patient CareCatawba Regional Hospice saves $70,000 per year using high tech devices.

    NEWTON, N.C., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Catawba Regional Hospice's 200 employees are committed to providing top-notch care to the seriously ill in need of palliative care. With a 34-year history serving patients in the communities of Newton and Hickory, N.C., the facility has turned to technology to improve operations.

    Catawba Regional Hospice recently began using Android-based CellTrak devices and mobile-Internet enabling air cards to automate workflow and reduce costs. Daily rounds for nurses are comprised of visiting patients at their homes, and CellTrak has simplified each nurse's routine.

    CellTrak automatically records mileage and provides a comprehensive report complete with driving directions sent to the nurse's smartphone. The device also relays patient status and records back to headquarters over Verizon's 4G LTE wireless network.

    "With new technology, our clinical staff now spend more time with patients and their families instead of filling out paper reports," said Tammy Jensen, finance director for Catawba Regional Hospice. "The result has been improved operational efficiencies that translate into reduced costs. We've already seen a $70,000 per year savings since adopting CellTrak and other Verizon Wireless devices."

    The hospice's nursing team is now able to visit 90 additional patients each week.

    Jensen says, "Since our high-tech makeover, our patients and their families report being more satisfied with the level of care they receive. Verizon helped craft a way for our company to become better at what we do, and we're grateful for that."

    Catawba Regional Hospice recently was named a winner of the 2013 Wireless Technology Innovation Awards - a competition for small and mid-sized businesses - and awarded a $10,000 grand prize for using technology in an innovative way.

    Revamped Vending Machine Industry Goes CashlessThe days of vending machines rejecting wrinkled dollar bills appear to be limited as remote, cashless point-of-sale technology expands.

    ANDERSON, S.C., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Businesses are adapting to a world where consumers carry little cash. According to Javelin Strategy & Research, just 27 percent of point-of-sale purchases are made with cash. That number is expected to drop to 23 percent by 2017. While there are implications for businesses in many industries, the cashless trend is severely affecting vending machines that dispense snacks and drinks.

    Anderson, S.C.-based Cromer Food Services has serviced vending machines in South Carolina and Georgia for 32 years. The company recently began to offer their customers - the small businesses that own vending machines - a way to serve the untapped market of people who carry only plastic in their wallets.

    "I noticed that few people under 40 carry cash, so by installing a card swipe on existing vending machines sales instantly jump by as much as 22 percent," said Brent Cromer, president of Cromer Food Services.

    Cromer has also equipped his field employees with handheld computers to help manage inventory. Accurate inventory counts are now sent over Verizon's 4G LTE network so delivery vehicles carry only the supplies they need to restock machines.

    "Improving the efficiency of our inventory management system has increased the capacity on board our vehicles by 50 percent. The additional items we place on the trucks drives revenue growth for us," said Cromer.

    Cromer Food Services was recently named runner-up of the 2013 Wireless Technology Innovation Awards - a competition for small and mid-sized businesses - and awarded a $5,000 prize for using technology in an innovative way.

    Cochlear Launches the Nucleus(R) 6 Upgrade Program for Recipients in the United States and Canada

    CENTENNIAL, Colo., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cochlear Limited , the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, announced today that the Cochlear(TM) Nucleus(R) 6 Sound Processor is now available as an upgrade for Nucleus Freedom(R) Implant System (CI24RE) and Nucleus 5 Implant System (CI422 and CI500 Series) recipients.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130531/LA23942)

    The next-generation Cochlear Nucleus 6 Sound Processor is built on a completely new microchip platform with five times the processing power of the market-leading Nucleus 5 Sound Processor. The added power enables the Nucleus 6 to support a rapidly expanding array of software programs and accessories. Forming the Nucleus 6 are useful design features with a system that has two choices of remotes, the industry's first data-logging capability to record daily use of the sound processor to give a clinician vital information to make precise program refinements, and dual omnidirectional microphones that work in tandem with SmartSound(R) Technology to filter out background noise more effectively than ever.

    "With a five times more powerful microchip opening up a world of capabilities, we are pleased to introduce the Nucleus 6 Sound Processor," said Chris Smith, President of Cochlear Americas. "We incorporated what we learned over the past 30 years and recipient feedback to design an upgraded system that current implant recipients can enjoy without additional surgery. Our research teams are also working actively to make this new sound processor compatible with our older generation implants, so that all can have access to the latest advances in technology."

    The Nucleus 6 is smaller than its predecessors and with its modular design, stays comfortably in place and fits children as well as adults. In fact, the Nucleus 6 Sound Processor is 29% smaller than the Nucleus Freedom Sound Processor* and 6% smaller than the Nucleus 5 Sound Processor.** Its small size won't stop the user from making connections, via audio cables, to a multitude of audio gadgets, such as an MP3 or iPod, and experimenting with a colorful spectrum of processor covers for a truly personalized hearing experience. The exciting lineup of accessories will increase with the future arrival of wireless connectivity.***

    The release dates for the Nucleus 6 Sound Processor Upgrade for Nucleus 22 and Nucleus 24 Implant recipients will depend on research and development timelines, manufacturing processes, and FDA approval procedures. Given the various factors, Cochlear Americas anticipates to have the Nucleus 6 Upgrade be available for Nucleus 22 and Nucleus 24 Implant recipients in early 2015.

    To learn more about the Nucleus 6 or to start the upgrade experience, please visit www.Cochlear.com/US/N6Upgrade.

    New ADP(R) Study Reveals Primary Concerns of Midsized Business OwnersCost of benefits, ACA legislation and volume of government regulations top list for 2013

    ROSELAND, N.J., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The cost of health coverage and other employee benefits, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and the level and volume of government regulations are cited as the top three concerns of midsized business owners and executives, according to a new study by the ADP Research Institute((R)), a specialized research group within ADP((R)), a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions.

    In its second year, ADP's study, "Top Concerns and Challenges of Midsized Business Leaders in 2013," examines the concerns, perceptions, challenges and plans of more than 1,000 business owners and executives at U.S. midsized companies, categorized as those with 50-999 employees.

    Topping the list of midsized business challenges in 2013 is the cost of health coverage and benefits (70%), made even more complex by employer requirements associated with ACA regulations. Two-thirds of midsized business owners say that the cost of providing employer-sponsored medical health insurance to employees is a barrier to achieving business goals.

    ACA legislation rates second among business owners' concerns (59%). The study reveals that as ACA regulations loom, there is a stark disconnect between executives' perceived ability to comply with the regulations and having a thorough understanding of the legislation and its implications on the organization. In fact, 70% of midsized company executives believe that their firms will be in "complete compliance" with ACA, while 66% of HR decision-makers are not confident they understand ACA, and nine out of 10 are not confident that their employees understand the impact of ACA on their benefits and benefit choices. Even more interesting is the double-digit increase year over year of ACA as a ranked concern - a 16% increase from 2012.

    The third most pressing business concern is the level and volume of government regulations (54%), as issues related to compliance and management of employee records are often more burdensome for midsized businesses. While the vast majority of respondents (83%) are confident that they are compliant with payroll tax laws and regulations, nearly one-third of all respondents report unintended expenses as a result of noncompliance in the past 12 months, pointing to a potential "compliance overconfidence" among executives. Furthermore, this overconfidence is costing businesses - of those fined or penalized, midsized firms report an average of six fines or penalties per year. These are costs businesses can ill afford in today's economic environment. Interestingly, organizations processing payroll in-house received almost twice as many fines or penalties as those that outsource processing to a third-party firm.

    "As we assess this year's top concerns among midsized business owners, it is clear that health care is at the forefront - whether it is the cost of benefits, understanding ACA or having mechanisms in place to ensure compliance - business owners continue to struggle with human capital management challenges," said Regina Lee, Division President, ADP. "The Affordable Care Act has added greater complexity to the health care issue, making it critical that business owners understand and effectively manage human capital needs."

    As midsized business owners manage more complex issues in an age of digitalization and globalization, ADP's study found that a large percentage of midsized business owners are putting themselves at risk of costly security breaches, natural disasters and noncompliance. Consider that a majority of midsized business owners surveyed (57%) still rely on paper-based records for storing and managing employee records, and nearly six in 10 have felt a financial impact of inaccurate data. Further, 20% of midsized business owners and executives said their company has been impacted by some kind of natural disaster in the past two years. And with 13% of midsized businesses reporting operations outside of the United States, the risk midsized businesses face regarding the security and accessibility of their employee records is increasingly critical to business operations.

    These business concerns play a role in midsized business owners' economic outlook for the coming year, which the ADP study also assessed. In fact, this year's study reveals a gap between perception and reality as business owners struggle to anticipate economic performance. When surveyed in 2012, only 15% of business owners expressed confidence in 2013's economic outlook. However, when surveyed this year on last year's performance, 61% judged that the economy had improved in the previous 12 months.

    While their overall outlook on the economy remains weak, respondents may be better adapting to economic realities that in the past have impacted their ability to meet business objectives. Compared to 2012, there are significant declines in the number of respondents who expressed concern about economic issues including fuel costs, cash flow, supplies and credit availability.

    LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marlin Equity Partners ("Marlin"), a global investment firm, today announced that Blackhawk Merger Sub Inc. ("Purchaser") has commenced the previously-announced cash tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of Tellabs, Inc. ("Tellabs") at a price of $2.45 per share, net to seller in cash without interest. Purchaser and its parent company, Blackhawk Holding Vehicle LLC ("Parent"), are affiliated with Marlin Equity III, L.P., Marlin Equity IV, L.P. and Marlin Management Company, LLC (d/b/a Marlin Equity Partners).

    On October 21, 2013, Marlin announced that Parent, Purchaser and Tellabs had entered into a definitive merger agreement pursuant to which the tender offer would be made. Pursuant to the merger agreement, after completion of the tender offer and the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Purchaser will merge with and into Tellabs, and all of the then outstanding shares of Tellabs' common stock (other than shares held by Tellabs, Parent, their respective wholly owned subsidiaries, or Tellabs' stockholders who validly exercise appraisal rights under Delaware law with respect to such shares) will be automatically converted into the right to receive cash equal to the $2.45 offer price per share, without interest.

    After careful consideration, the board of directors of Tellabs unanimously approved the merger agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby. Accordingly, the board of directors has recommended that Tellabs stockholders tender their shares in the tender offer.

    Purchaser and Parent filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") today a tender offer statement on Schedule TO, including an offer to purchase and related letter of transmittal, setting forth in detail the terms and conditions of the tender offer. Additionally, Tellabs has filed with the SEC a solicitation/recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 setting forth in detail, among other things, the recommendation of Tellabs' board of directors that Tellabs' stockholders tender their shares in the tender offer.

    The completion of the tender offer is conditioned upon, among other things, satisfaction of a minimum tender condition and other closing conditions. The transaction is not subject to a financing condition. The tender offer commenced today will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on December 2, 2013 unless the offer is extended in accordance with its terms. Upon the successful completion of the transaction, Tellabs will become a privately held company.

    ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions Selects inContact to Streamline Access to Healthcare for Millions of U.S. CitizensCloud Contact Center Technology to Help Consumers Navigate Plan Options, Eligibility, and Enrollment

    SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- inContact , the leading provider of cloud contact center software and contact center agent optimization tools, today announced that ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions has chosen inContact to help deliver critical health information to millions of U.S. consumers accessing medical insurance under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120216/LA54560LOGO)

    ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions specializes in guiding citizens through the process of selecting the right health plan for their families. Following ACA open enrollment on October 1, the organization turned to inContact's cloud contact center solution to scale to meet the increasing volume of customer inquiries regarding plan options, eligibility, and enrollment practices.

    "Citizens need efficient access to information on ACA enrollment, and our PBX system didn't have the capacity to process expected call volumes," said Bill Hallberg, Chief Enrollment Officer at ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions. "The cloud enabled us to meet this rising demand, and to do it quickly. inContact had us up and running and taking calls in two weeks."

    Citizen calls will now be efficiently delivered to agents via inContact's hosted IP telephony capabilities, and advanced call recording features will ensure HIPPA-compliance. Cloud call routing will enable the organization to virtually field calls at any of their nationwide locations, and the recently released Supervisor On-The-Go iPad app will streamline the management of agent queues.

    "Many of our healthcare customers are dealing with unprecedented call volumes related to the Affordable Care Act," said Paul Jarman, inContact CEO. "The scalability and resilience of the cloud offers a compelling solution for organizations like ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions that are required to expand on the fly, while maximizing resources and upholding the highest levels of security."

    Currently 150 agents strong, the ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions is growing rapidly to meet citizen demand, with plans to incorporate inContact's Workforce Optimization suite to effectively manage and schedule staff.

    U.S. Cellular Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

    CHICAGO, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As previously announced, U.S. Cellular will hold a teleconference Nov. 1, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. CDT. Listen to the live call via the Conference Calls page of teldta.com or uscellular.com.

    United States Cellular Corporation [NYSE:USM] reported service revenues of $862.3 million for the third quarter of 2013, versus $1,036.4 million for the comparable period one year ago. Net income (loss) attributable to U.S. Cellular shareholders and related diluted earnings (loss) per share were $(9.9) million and $(0.12) respectively, for the third quarter of 2013, compared to $35.5 million and $0.42, respectively, in the comparable period one year ago.

    "We have continued to execute on our strategies to improve U.S. Cellular's competitive position and financial foundation," said Kenneth R. Meyers, U.S. Cellular president and CEO. "We're close to bringing 4G LTE to nearly 90 percent of our customers, we have a new billing system in place, and we plan to expand our device portfolio with the launch of the Apple iPhone and iPad on November 8, supported by our recently introduced shared data plans for consumers and businesses. Regrettably, the billing system implementation impacted our ability to provide high-quality service to every customer for a period of time. However, we have made substantial progress in resolving the issues, and we expect the system to provide significant benefits over the long term.

    "I believe we're positioned well to achieve improved customer growth in the future, with a fast 4G LTE network, a competitive selection of devices and plans, and effective distribution through our company- and agent-owned stores, uscellular.com, and our national retail partners.

    "We have been successful in our sales of non-strategic spectrum, with deals signed or closed generating pre-tax cash proceeds of over $400 million."

    2013 ESTIMATES

    U.S. Cellular's estimates of full-year 2013 results are shown below. Such estimates represent U.S. Cellular's views as of the date of filing U.S. Cellular's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Such forward?looking statements should not be assumed to be current as of any future date. U.S. Cellular undertakes no duty to update such information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. There can be no assurance that final results will not differ materially from such estimated results.

    2013 Estimated Results (1) ------------------------- Core Markets (2) Divestiture Markets U.S. Cellular Consolidated (2)(3) (2)(3) --------------- -------------------- --------------------------- Previous Current Previous Current Previous Current -------- ------- -------- ------- -------- ------- (Dollars in millions) Service revenues $3,475 - $3,575 $3,450 - $3,500 $140 Unchanged $3,615-$3,715 $3,590-$3,640 Adjusted income before $560 - $660 Unchanged $40 Unchanged $600-$700 Unchanged income taxes (4) Capital expenditures $730 Unchanged $5 Unchanged $735 Unchanged

    (1) These estimates are based on U.S. Cellular's current plans, which include an expansion of the multi-year deployment of 4G LTE technology; such expansion includes deployment on 700 MHz in additional markets as well as deployment on the 850 MHz band to provide additional capacity for future growth in data usage, enable potential future 4G LTE roaming, and support the sale of Apple products. The financial impacts of selling Apple products in 2013 consist of the following:

    --  Increased Service revenues resulting from net incremental customers
    added and retained as a result of offering Apple products;
    --  Decreased Adjusted income before income taxes as a result of net
    increases in costs, primarily loss on equipment sales as a result of
    offering Apple products; and
    --  Increased Capital expenditures related to the deployment on the 850 MHz
    band to provide additional capacity for future growth in data usage,
    which includes capacity required to accommodate Apple products.
    

    These estimates also reflect the impacts of the deconsolidation of certain partnerships as of April 2013. These estimates do not include (i) the reported gain on sale of business and other exit costs, net (ii) the reported gain on investments, or (iii) the actual or expected gains from spectrum license divestitures. New developments or changing conditions (such as, but not limited to, regulatory developments, customer net growth, customer demand for data services or possible acquisitions, dispositions or exchanges) could affect U.S. Cellular's plans and, therefore, its 2013 estimated results. (2) The U.S. Cellular Consolidated amounts represent GAAP financial measures and include the results of both the Core Markets and the Divestiture Markets. The amounts for the Core Markets and Divestiture Markets represent non-GAAP financial measures. U.S. Cellular believes that the amounts for the Core Markets and Divestiture Markets may be useful to investors and other users of its financial information in evaluating the separate results for the Core Markets. Divestiture Markets are comprised of U.S. Cellular's Chicago, central Illinois, St. Louis and certain Indiana/Michigan/Ohio markets. Core Markets are comprised of all other markets in which U.S. Cellular conducts business including Peoria, Rockford and certain other areas in Illinois, and in Columbia, Joplin, Jefferson City and certain other areas in Missouri. Core Markets as defined also includes any other income or expenses due to U.S. Cellular's direct or indirect ownership interests in other spectrum in the Divestiture Markets which was not included in the sale and other retained assets from the Divestiture Markets. (3) These estimates reflect the Divestiture Transaction which closed on May 16, 2013. (4) Adjusted income before income taxes is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as Income before income taxes, adjusted for the items set forth in the reconciliation below. Adjusted income before income taxes excludes these items in order to show operating results on a more comparable basis from period to period. In addition, U.S. Cellular may also exclude other items from adjusted income before income taxes if such items help reflect operating results on a more comparable basis. U.S. Cellular does not intend to imply that any such amounts that are excluded are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual; such amounts may occur in the future. Adjusted income before income taxes is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to Income before income taxes as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or as an alternative to Cash flows from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. U.S. Cellular believes Adjusted income before income taxes is a useful measure of U.S. Cellular's operating results before significant recurring non-cash charges, discrete gains and losses and financing charges (Interest expense). The following tables provide a reconciliation of Income (loss) before income taxes to Adjusted income before income taxes for 2013 Estimated Results, nine months ended September 30, 2013 actual results, and 2012 actual results:

    2013 Estimated Results Core Divestiture U.S. Cellular Markets Markets Consolidated (2) (2)(3) (2)(3) -------- ------------ -------------- (Dollars in millions) Income (loss) before income taxes $315-$415 $35 $350-$450 Depreciation, amortization and accretion expense (5) $540 $250 $790 (Gain) loss on sale of business and other exit costs, net - ($245) ($245) (Gain) loss from spectrum license divestitures ($325) - ($325) (Gain) loss on investments ($20) - ($20) Interest expense $50 - $50 --- --- --- Adjusted income before income taxes $560-$660 $40 $600-$700 ========= === ========= U.S. Cellular Consolidated Actual Results ---------------------------------- Nine Months Ended Year Ended September 30, December 31, 2013 2012 ------------- ------------- Income before income taxes $266 $205 Depreciation, amortization and accretion expense (5) 593 609 (Gain) loss on sale of business and other exit costs, net (244) 21 (Gain) loss from spectrum license divestitures - - (Gain) loss on investments (18) 4 Interest expense 33 42 --- --- Adjusted income before income taxes $630 $881 ==== ====

    (5) The 2013 estimated amount for Depreciation, amortization and accretion expense in the Divestiture Markets includes approximately $171 million of incremental accelerated depreciation, amortization and accretion resulting from the Divestiture Transaction. Actual results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and the year ended December 31, 2012 include $134 million and $20 million, respectively, of incremental accelerated depreciation, amortization and accretion resulting from the Divestiture Transaction.

    IBM Research and Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology Discover Breakthrough for Breast Cancer Drug DeliveryNovel hydrogel acts as drug delivery depot that reduces tumor size in fewer treatments than traditional therapies

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, scientists from IBM and Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) published a breakthrough drug-delivery technique, demonstrating the first biodegradable, biocompatible and non-toxic hydrogel that can deliver treatment more efficiently to people fighting breast cancer.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20090416/IBMLOGO)

    Approximately 25% of all breast cancer patients have human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), a specific type of cancerous cell identified in this study that is considered aggressive because it spreads quickly and has a low survival rate.

    Treatment of breast cancer varies according to the size, stage and rate of growth, as well as the type of tumor. There are currently three main categories of post-surgery therapies available: hormone blocking therapy, chemotherapy and monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) therapy.

    In the case of antibodies, the drugs are paired with saline and delivered intravenously into the body. Targeting specific cells or proteins, the antibodies block specific cell receptors to destroy cancer cells and suppress tumor growth. However, these drugs are absorbed in the body and have limited lifetimes and effectiveness when injected directly into the bloodstream.

    Recognizing this, IBM and IBN scientists developed a novel synthetic hydrogel made up of over 96% water and a degradable polymer that is capable of sequestering a range of cargos from small molecules to large molecules including mAbs.

    It also exhibits many of the biocompatible characteristics of water-soluble polymers, which hold form in the body without completely dissolving. This allows the hydrogel to function as a depot for the drug to slow-release its contents in a targeted location directly at the tumor site over weeks instead of days. Once the drug has been delivered, the hydrogel biodegrades naturally and passes through the body.

    "Drawing from our experience in materials innovation for electronics technology, we are now applying these techniques to the quest for improved health," said Dr. James Hedrick, Advanced Organic Materials Scientist, IBM Research - Almaden. "This hydrogel can help deliver drugs over an extended period of time without causing a significant immune response, effectively sending its contents directly to the tumor without harming healthy surrounding cells."

    In animal studies done by Singapore's IBN, testing demonstrated improved results when the antibody was paired and delivered with the hydrogel, even at low concentration, than on its own.

    --  Tumor Size: Over the course of 28 days, the tumor shrank 77% when paired
    with the hydrogel via subcutaneous injection at the tumor site as
    opposed to 0% without it by intravenous injection.
    --  Treatment Frequency: When paired with the hydrogel and injected
    subcutaneously at a site far away from the tumor, the treatment
    frequency was reduced from 4 to 1 while maintaining a similar
    therapeutic effect. This is when compared to just the antibody solution
    formulation injected intravenously.
    --  Weight: The ability to target and deliver the drug directly at the tumor
    site allowed for only the infected cells to be eradicated, leaving
    healthy cells alone. This resulted in stable to moderate weight gain
    during the study instead of massive weight loss traditionally associated
    with cancer drug treatments.
    --  Non-Toxic: Since the hydrogel is non-toxic, it demonstrated high
    biocompatibility as evidenced by no cellular inflammation with minimal
    immune system response while degrading naturally and passing through the
    body within 6 weeks
    

    "We have developed new, effective materials for nanomedicine, which has been one of IBN's key research focus areas since 2003. The sustained delivery of Herceptin from our hydrogel provides greater anti-tumor efficacy and reduces injection frequency. Thus, our approach may help to improve patient compliance, offering a better alternative to existing breast cancer treatments. This technology can also be used to deliver other types of antibodies or proteins to treat different diseases," said Dr. Yi Yan Yang, Group Leader, Nanomedicine, Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, Singapore.

    The IBM nanomedicine polymer program - which started in IBM's Research labs four years ago with the mission to improve human health - stems from decades of materials development traditionally used for semiconductor technologies. This advance will expand the scope of IBM and the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology's collaborative program, allowing scientists to simultaneously pursue multiple methods for creating materials to improve medicine and drug discovery. An industry and institute collaboration of this scale brings together the minds and resources of several leading scientific institutions to address the complex challenges in making practical nanomedicine solutions a reality.

    The full research paper was published today in the peer-reviewed journal Advanced Functional Materials DOI: 10.1002/adfm.201301307.

"At U.S. Cellular, we introduced shared data plans, prepared for the upcoming launch of Apple devices, and implemented an important new billing system. TDS Telecom completed the acquisition of Baja Broadband in August, and acquired IT solutions provider MSN Communications in early October.

    "U.S. Cellular is close to its goal of bringing 4G LTE access to nearly 90 percent of its customers in 2013, to support growth in smartphone penetration and increased data use. We expect that the addition of the Apple iPhone 5s and 5c to our device portfolio in early November, together with shared data plans we launched in October, will help build our customer base and reduce churn. We are disappointed about, and regret, the significant impact of the billing system implementation on our customer service levels for a period of time. We have resolved most of these issues, and we expect the billing system to provide outstanding benefits going forward. U.S. Cellular has been successful in its sales of non-strategic spectrum, with deals signed or closed generating pre-tax cash proceeds of over $400 million.

    "In addition to completing the recent cable and HMS acquisitions, TDS Telecom had continued growth in residential IPTV and commercial managedIP connections. A combination of revenue growth and cost reductions helped to improve TDS Telecom's profitability in the quarter."

    2013 ESTIMATES

    Estimates of full-year 2013 results for U.S. Cellular, TDS Telecom and TDS are shown below. Such estimates represent management's view as of the date of filing TDS' Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013. Such forward-looking statements should not be assumed to be current as of any future date. TDS undertakes no duty to update such information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. There can be no assurance that final results will not differ materially from such estimated results.

    2013 Estimated Results (1) ------------------------- U.S. Cellular (2) TDS Telecom TDS (2)(6) ---------------- ----------- --------- Previous Current Previous Current Previous Current -------- ------- -------- ------- -------- ------- (Dollars in millions) Adjusted operating $3,615-$3,715 $3,590-$3,640 $890-$930 $920-$960 $4,550-$4,690 $4,555-$4,645 revenues (3) Adjusted income before $600-$700 Unchanged $230-$260 Unchanged $830-$960 Unchanged income taxes (4) Capital expenditures $735 Unchanged $165 Unchanged $910 Unchanged

    (1) These estimates are based on TDS' current plans, which include an expansion of the multi-year deployment of 4G LTE technology; such expansion includes deployment on 700 MHz in additional markets as well as deployment on the 850 MHz band to provide additional capacity for future growth in data usage, enable potential future 4G LTE roaming, and support the sale of Apple products. The financial impacts of selling Apple products in 2013 consist of the following:

    --  Increased Adjusted operating revenues resulting from net incremental
    customers added and retained as a result of offering Apple products;
    --  Decreased Adjusted income before income taxes as a result of net
    increases in costs, primarily loss on equipment sales as a result of
    offering Apple products; and
    --  Increased Capital expenditures related to the deployment on the 850 MHz
    band to provide additional capacity for future growth in data usage,
    which includes capacity required to accommodate Apple products.
    

    These estimates also reflect the impacts of the deconsolidation of certain partnerships as of April 2013 at U.S. Cellular. These estimates do not include (i) the reported gain on sale of business and other exit costs, net (ii) the reported gain on investments, or (iii) the actual or expected gains from spectrum license divestitures. In addition, the estimates reflect the impacts of the acquisition of Baja Broadband, LLC as of August 1, 2013 and MSN Communications, Inc. as of October 4, 2013, and of a multi-year deployment of IPTV at TDS Telecom. New developments or changing conditions (such as, but not limited to, regulatory developments, customer net growth, customer demand for data services, costs to deploy, agreements for content or franchises, or possible acquisitions, dispositions or exchanges) could affect TDS' plans and, therefore, its 2013 estimated results. (2) These estimates reflect U.S. Cellular's consolidated results for 2013. Estimated results reflecting U.S. Cellular's Divestiture Markets and Core Markets are shown in the table below:

    2013 Estimated Results ---------------------- U.S. Cellular Core U.S. Cellular Divestiture U.S. Cellular Markets (5) Markets (5) Consolidated (5) ---------- ---------- --------------- Previous Current Previous Current Previous Current -------- ------- -------- ------- -------- ------- (Dollars in millions) Adjusted operating $3,475-$3,575 $3,450-$3,500 $140 Unchanged $3,615-$3,715 $3,590-$3,640 revenues (3) Adjusted income before $560-$660 Unchanged $40 Unchanged $600-$700 Unchanged income taxes (4) Capital expenditures $730 Unchanged $5 Unchanged $735 Unchanged These estimates reflect the Divestiture Transaction which closed on May 16, 2013.

    (3) Adjusted operating revenues is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as Operating revenues excluding U.S. Cellular Equipment sales revenues. U.S. Cellular Equipment sales revenues are excluded from Adjusted operating revenues since U.S. Cellular equipment is generally sold at a net loss, and such net loss that results from U.S. Cellular Equipment sales revenues less U.S. Cellular Cost of equipment sold is viewed as a cost of earning service revenues for purposes of assessing business results. For purposes of developing this guidance, TDS does not calculate an estimate of U.S. Cellular Equipment sales revenues. TDS believes this measure provides useful information to investors regarding TDS' results of operations. Adjusted operating revenues is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to Operating revenues as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. (4) Adjusted income before income taxes is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as Income before income taxes, adjusted for the items set forth in the reconciliation below. Adjusted income before income taxes excludes these items in order to show operating results on a more comparable basis from period to period. In addition, TDS may also exclude other items from adjusted income before income taxes if such items help reflect operating results on a more comparable basis. TDS does not intend to imply that any such amounts that are excluded are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual; such amounts may occur in the future. Adjusted income before income taxes is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to Income before income taxes as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or as an alternative to Cash flows from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, as an indicator of cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. TDS believes Adjusted income before income taxes is a useful measure of TDS' operating results before significant recurring non-cash charges, discrete gains and losses and financing charges (Interest expense). The following tables provide a reconciliation of Income (loss) before income taxes to Adjusted income before income taxes for 2013 Estimated Results, nine months ended September 30, 2013 actual results, and 2012 actual results:

The amounts for Core Markets and Divestiture Markets represent non-GAAP financial measures. TDS believes that the amounts for the Core Markets and Divestiture Markets may be useful to investors and other users of its financial information in evaluating the separate results for the Core Markets. Divestiture Markets are comprised of U.S. Cellular's Chicago, central Illinois, St. Louis and certain Indiana/ Michigan/Ohio markets. Core Markets are comprised of all other markets in which U.S. Cellular conducts business including Peoria, Rockford and certain other areas in Illinois, and in Columbia, Joplin, Jefferson City and certain other areas in Missouri. Core Markets as defined also includes any other income or expenses due to U.S. Cellular's direct or indirect ownership interests in other spectrum in the Divestiture Markets which was not included in the sale and other retained assets from the Divestiture Markets. (6) The TDS column includes U.S. Cellular, TDS Telecom and also the impacts of consolidating eliminations, corporate operations and non-reportable segments, all of which are not presented above. (7) The 2013 estimated amount for Depreciation, amortization and accretion expense in the U.S. Cellular Divestiture Markets includes approximately $171 million of incremental accelerated depreciation, amortization and accretion resulting from the Divestiture Transaction. Actual results for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and the year ended December 31, 2012 include $134 million and $20 million, respectively, of incremental accelerated depreciation, amortization and accretion resulting from the Divestiture Transaction.

    First CUFX Integration successful at Symitar client, Baxter Credit Union- Support for new industry standard extends core processor's commitment to open architecture -

    MONETT, Mo., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Its Symitar((R)) division has confirmed the success of the first Credit Union Financial Exchange (CUFX) standards integration in a Symitar client, Illinois-based Baxter Credit Union (BCU).

    CUFX is a set of core-agnostic standards proposed and developed by the CUNA Technology Council for integrating various types of third-party applications to core processing systems. Symitar was the first core processor to embrace CUFX, providing early input to the CUNA Technology Council on CUFX 1.0, which ultimately led to the CUFX-based integration between Episys((R)) and MoneyDesktop's personal financial management (PFM) software at the $1.8 billion BCU.

    In line with its focus on standards, Symitar also contributed to the development of the CUFX 2.0 specification. The CUFX 2.0 specification incorporates enhancements that enable CUFX connectivity for online membership application software, as well as more detailed guidance in the area of security. It is expected that CUFX 3.0 will add mobile connectivity.

    Jeff Johnson, senior vice president and chief information officer at BCU said, "We're running live in our CUFX environment with no issues. Symitar has really been out in front of the charge. They've participated in every working group we've held." Johnson is also on the CUNA Technology Council executive board and is a driving force behind the CUFX initiative.

    Symitar president Ted Bilke said, "We have always been committed to keeping Episys as open as possible. Our support of CUFX is an extension of our longstanding commitment to make it as easy as possible for our clients to integrate Episys with the third-party products that best support their business strategies and technology requirements."

    Chile's Torres del Paine National Park Selected as 8th Wonder of the World by VirtualTourist VotersChilean Actor Cristian De La Fuente Revealed the Feat on TV's "Good Day L.A."

    LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VirtualTourist.com, a leading travel research website and community that is part of TripAdvisor Media Group, announced today that after more than five million worldwide votes, Turismo Chile's entry of Torres del Paine National Park has been named the "8(th) Wonder of the World."

    Earlier this year, VirtualTourist declared it was on the hunt to identify the 8(th) Wonder of the World through site visitor votes. Torres del Paine, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve known for its lakes, glaciers, waterfalls and granite towers, was chosen out of more than 300 entries from over 50 countries.

    "VirtualTourist members and site visitors are some of the most well-traveled people. We knew we could tap into their knowledge to select the 8(th) Wonder of the World," said Kimberly Stirdivant Wason, head of pr and marketing for VirtualTourist. "With its awe-inspiring physical attributes and breathtaking landscapes, it's no wonder our site visitors named Torres del Paine the winner."

    Formed approximately, 145 to 66 million years ago, Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia occupies 935 square miles (2,442 square kilometers) and is well known for its beautiful mountain peaks with its highest point reaching 9,462 feet (2,884 meters).

    Chilean-born actor Cristian de la Fuente made the announcement on Los Angeles's top morning show "Good Day L.A." De la Fuente, who recently appeared on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" and "Private Practice" and was born and raised in Chile's capital, Santiago, says Torres del Paine is a place where you can lose yourself. "Chilean Patagonia is an amazing area of unlimited and unspoiled nature. Whether on foot or by car, one of the most impressive destinations this region has to offer is Torres del Paine."

    Torres del Paine has become known as a hikers' paradise where visitors can traverse through a remote environment unlike any other. This last year, the national park received 15 percent more visitors than previous years with more than 139,000 trekkers.

    "We always believed Torres del Paine had the natural qualities to become the 8(th) Wonder of the World due to its exceptional beauty and its breathtaking landscapes," said Chile Secretary of Tourism Daniel Pardo. "Being named the 8(th) Wonder by VirtualTourist, one of the most respected names in travel, we hope will bring even more adventure seekers out to Torres del Paine to experience its unique splendor."

    El Salvador's Santa Ana Volcano and Lake Coatepeque, Colombia's Coffee Cultural Landscape, Guatemala's Tikal National Park, Slovenia's Skocjan Caves, Mexico's Copper Canyon, Scotland's Dunnottar Castle, Belize's Great Blue Hole, Curacao's Queen Emma Bridge and Croatia's Old Town Dubrovnik are the other landmarks receiving the most votes to make up the top ten.

    OM Group Announces Third Quarter 2013 Financial ResultsDebt-free balance sheet; Strong cash flows; Higher cost-reduction benefits

    CLEVELAND, Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OM Group, Inc. today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013. The Company reported adjusted EBITDA of $32 million, excluding $2 million of charges related to cost-reduction initiatives and the results of its divested Advanced Materials cobalt business. The Company also reported income from continuing operations of $0.39 per diluted share, or $0.47 per diluted share excluding the special charges and the divested business. The Company achieved $6 million of cost savings in the quarter, and cash flows from operating activities of $36 million.

    "Our third quarter performance highlights our ability to deliver solid results despite continued soft economic conditions in many of our key markets," said Joe Scaminace, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OM Group, Inc. "Our portfolio of value-added businesses is more predictable, and we have more levers we can pull to create value. Throughout this year, we have developed and executed cost-reduction initiatives to improve productivity and increase profits, returns and cash flow."

    The Company ended the quarter with $116 million of cash and no debt outstanding. There were no borrowings under the Company's new $350 million revolving credit facility at September 30, 2013.

    Third quarter 2013 sales were $266 million. Excluding the Advanced Materials business and the effects of rare earth pricing in the Magnetic Technologies business, net sales were $244 million, up 2% quarter-over-quarter versus the comparable figure a year ago that included a $26 million higher rare earth pass-through pricing effect. Excluding the rare earth pricing effects, Magnetic Technologies sales were higher due to the stronger Euro in the current year period and increased volumes. As expected, sales in Battery Technologies were lower due to timing after record sales levels in the first half of 2013. Specialty Chemicals sales were slightly higher due primarily to stronger sales volumes in electronic chemicals, driven by increased demand for consumer electronics.

    At the beginning of the year, the Company announced a broad range of cost-reduction initiatives to improve financial performance and optimize its cost structure. These initiatives are now expected to contribute $15-20 million of savings in 2013, and will better position the Company for expanded profitability as macroeconomic conditions improve. Through the first nine months of 2013, the Company realized savings of $11 million and incurred charges of $8 million related to these initiatives, with $6 million of savings and $2 million of charges in the third quarter.

    The Company continues to expect 2013 adjusted EBITDA levels at the lower end of its original forecast of $120-140 million, primarily due to the second quarter divestiture of its UPC product lines, which were expected to contribute approximately $10 million of EBITDA in 2013. The divestiture resulted in the business being treated as a discontinued operation for the full year. The Company's forecast excludes Advanced Materials, UPC and charges related to divestitures and cost-reduction initiatives.

    Mr. Scaminace concluded, "With a strong, debt-free balance sheet and new credit agreement in place, we are well-positioned to execute our strategy of organic and strategic growth. We remain focused on operating execution and cost reductions to deliver higher profits, while continuing to pursue synergistic acquisitions to build out our business platforms. We are confident in our ability to deliver growth, increasing margins and higher returns for our shareholders."

Through attraction of new users and vertical migration of existing users to higher tier data plans, mobile Internet subscriber growth continued to exceed our guidance. We further extended our market leadership in mobile, growing our mobile internet subscriber market share to 34.1%. In the smart phone segment, through the successful implementation of our promotional initiatives, we grew our smartphone penetration to 50%, necessitating we revise our year-end guidance upward. For our broadband business, we continued our initiatives for retaining customers as well as facilitating customer upgrades. In the third quarter, we were able to double revenues for our cloud business year over year, and secure several high-profile ICT projects. Our success in this young business line is a testament to our ability to leverage our core telecom infrastructure and services to expand into new markets. Going forward, we aim to quickly build out our 4G offering, deploy data centers for our cloud business, and seek innovative ways to expand market share and increase monetization of our large subscriber base."

    Revenue

    Chunghwa's total revenue for the third quarter of 2013 increased by 2.6% to NT$56.72 billion. This total was comprised of 48.5% mobile, 11.9% internet, 31.7% domestic fixed, 7.0% international fixed, and the remainder was from other businesses.

    Total revenue for the mobile business increased to NT$27.53 billion for the third quarter 2013, representing 10.6% growth. The increase was primarily due to growth in mobile VAS revenue and handset sales from smartphone promotions. This increase offset a decline in mobile voice revenue due to market competition and the National Communication Committee's ("NCC") tariff reductions.

    Chunghwa's Internet business revenue increased by 11.2% to NT$6.73 billion in the third quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to the growth of ICT project revenue.

    For the third quarter of 2013, domestic fixed revenue totaled NT$17.97 billion, representing a 5.7% decrease. Local and DLD service revenue decreased by 8.1% and 7.3% respectively mainly due to mobile and VoIP substitution.

    Broadband access revenue decreased by 0.8% to NT$4.77 billion, demonstrating the impact of the mandated tariff reductions for both ADSL and fiber services.

    International fixed revenue increased by 2.8% to NT$3.97 billion, mainly due to the growth of ICT project revenue.

    Other revenue decreased by 63.1%, primarily due to less construction revenue from the property development subsidiary, Light Era.

    For the first nine months of 2013, total revenue was NT$169.18 billion, a 2.4% increase compared to the same period in 2012. This total was comprised of 48.7% mobile, 11.2% Internet, 32.0% domestic fixed, 7.0% international fixed, and the remainder was from other businesses.

    Operating Costs and Expenses

    Total operating costs and expenses for the third quarter of 2013 increased 3.5% to NT$44.12 billion. The increase was mainly from the rising cost of handsets sold, resulting from a strong mobile internet and handset sales during the quarter.

    Total operating costs and expenses for the first nine months of 2013 increased by 5.0% year-over-year to NT$132.67 billion, mainly due to the same reason for the third quarter as previously mentioned.

    Income Tax

    Income tax expense for the third quarter of 2013 increased by 4.4% to NT$2.18 billion.

    Operating Income and Net Income

    Income from operations decreased by 0.4% to NT$12.59 billion for the third quarter. The operating margin was 22.2%, compared to 22.9% in the same period of 2012. Net income decreased by 0.5% to NT$10.65 billion. Basic earnings per share was NT$1.37.

    Cash Flow and EBITDA

    Cash flow from operating activities for the third quarter of 2013 increased by 13.4% to NT$17.10 billion, mainly due to the decrease in payment to equipment contractors this year and less mobile deposits last year due to favorable offering for VIP subscribers.

    EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 decreased by 0.4% to NT$20.65 billion. The EBITDA margin was 36.4% compared to 37.5% in the same period of 2012. The lower EBITDA margin was primarily due to tariff cuts and the higher handset sales, of which the EBITDA margin is lower than traditional telecom services.

    Capital Expenditure ("Capex")

    Total capex for the third quarter of 2013 decreased by 7.3% to NT$7.72 billion. Total capex was comprised of: 66.5% domestic fixed communications, 12.8% mobile, 13.9% Internet, 5.5% international fixed communications, and the remainder was for other uses.

    NOTE CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

    This press release contains forward-looking statements. These statements constitute "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates" and similar statements. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about Chunghwa's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Investors are cautioned that actual events and results could differ materially from those statements as a result of a number of factors including, but not limited to the risks outlined in Chunghwa's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Forms F-1, F-3, 6-K and 20-F, in each case as amended. The forward-looking statements in this press release reflect the current belief of Chunghwa as of the date of this press release and Chunghwa undertakes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements for events or circumstances that occur subsequent to such date, except as required under applicable law.

    This press release is not an offer of securities for sale in the United States. Securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from registration. Any public offering of securities to be made in the United States will be made by means of a prospectus that may be obtained from the issuer or selling security holder and that will contain detailed information about the company and management, as well as financial statements.

    NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

    To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards pursuant to the requirements of the Financial Supervisory Commission, or T-IFRSs, Chunghwa Telecom also provides EBITDA, which is a "non-GAAP financial measure". EBITDA is defined as consolidated net income (loss) excluding (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) total net comprehensive financing cost (which is comprised of net interest expense, exchange gain or loss, monetary position gain or loss and other financing costs and derivative transactions), (iii) other income, net, (iv) income tax, (v) (income) loss from discontinued operations.

    In managing the Company's business, Chunghwa Telecom relies on EBITDA as a means of assessing its operating performance because it excludes the effect of (i) depreciation and amortization, which represents a non-cash charge to earnings, (ii) certain financing costs, which are significantly affected by external factors, including interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and inflation rates, which have little or no bearing on our operating performance, (iii) income tax (iv) other expenses or income not related to the operation of the business.

    CAUTIONS ON USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

    In addition to the consolidated financial results prepared under T-IFRSs, Chunghwa Telecom also provide non-GAAP financial measures, including "EBITDA." The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with another method for assessing its operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of its ongoing operations.

    Chunghwa Telecom's management believes investors will benefit from greater transparency in referring to these non-GAAP financial measures when assessing the Company's operating results, as well as when forecasting and analyzing future periods. However, the Company recognizes that:

    --  these non-GAAP financial measures are limited in their usefulness and
    should be considered only as a supplement to the Company's T-IFRSs
    financial measures;
    --  these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation
    from, or as a substitute for, the Company's T-IFRSs financial measures;
    --  these non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered to be
    superior to the Company's T-IFRSs financial measures; and
    --  these non-GAAP financial measures were not prepared in accordance with
    T-IFRSs and investors should not assume that the non-GAAP financial
    measures presented in this earnings release were prepared under a
    comprehensive set of rules or principles.
    

    Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may be unique to Chunghwa Telecom, as they may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. As such, this presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not enhance the comparability of the Company's results to the results of other companies. Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results as a substitute for results under T-IFRSs, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies.
