Data Domain, Inc. Reports Restatement of Previously Issued Financial Statements for the Calculation of Net Income (Loss) per Share

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 29, 2007) - Data Domain, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDUP) today announced that in its previously issued financial statements for its fiscal years ended December 31, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and for its fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2006 and 2007 and June 30, 2006 and 2007, it erroneously calculated the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the purpose of determining its net income (loss) per share for each of these periods. The effect of the erroneous calculation was to understate the net loss per share for each of these periods, but in all other respects the Company's financial results and financial condition were not affected by the restatement.

Data Domain intends to file its restated Audited Consolidated Financial Statements for the years ended December 31, 2004, 2005 and 2006 as Exhibit 99.1 to a Current Report on Form 8-K that it intends to file tomorrow, which financial statements may be relied upon by investors.

The previously issued financial statements erroneously included as part of the weighted average number of shares outstanding unvested shares of common stock that were issued pursuant to the early exercise of stock options that were subject to repurchase by the Company at the end of each period. Accordingly, the Company's previously issued financial statements covering such periods should no longer be relied upon because of this error. The effect of this error on each of these periods is as follows:
