Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The accompanying press release dated September 30, 2010 contains non-GAAP financial measures. The above table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures in the press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP cost of revenue, gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, loss from operations, net income (loss), net income (loss) per share amounts, weighted average shares outstanding, and free cash flow.

Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs and expenses for (i) amortization of purchased intangibles, (ii) stock-based compensation and (iii) restructuring charges

Amortization of Purchased Intangible Assets. In accordance with GAAP, we amortize intangible assets acquired in connection with our company and technology acquisitions over the estimated useful lives of the assets. In the case of in-process research and development costs, there is no estimated useful life and, as such, we amortize these costs in full upon the closing of the related acquisition. We exclude the amortization of purchased intangible assets from our non-GAAP financial measures because they (i) result from prior acquisitions, rather than the ongoing operating performance of our business, and (ii) absent additional acquisitions, are expected to decline over time as the remaining carrying amounts of these assets are amortized. We believe excluding these costs helps investors compare our financial performance with that of other companies with different acquisition histories. However, we recognize that amortization costs provide a helpful measure of the financial impact and performance of prior acquisitions and consider our non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with our GAAP financial results that include amortization costs.

Stock-Based Compensation Expenses. We exclude stock-based compensation expense associated with equity incentives granted to employees and non-executive directors in our non-GAAP financial measures. While stock-based compensation is a significant component of our expenses, we believe that investors may wish to exclude the effects of stock-based compensation expense in comparing our financial performance with that of other companies. 

Restructuring Charges. We have excluded restructuring charges associated with a reduction in our workforce as a result of synergies gained through our acquisition of Connect3 Systems, Inc., and with an office closure in our non-GAAP financial measures for the first quarter of fiscal 2010. We have excluded expenses associated with these actions because they are non-recurring and because we believe investors may wish to exclude the effects of these actions in evaluating our financial performance for the quarter.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP financial measures, which should be considered as the primary financial metrics for evaluating our financial performance. Significantly, non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Instead, they are based on subjective determinations by management designed to supplement our GAAP financial measures. They are subject to a number of important limitations and should be considered only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, our non-GAAP financial measures differ from GAAP measures with the same names, may vary over time and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names used by other companies. Accordingly, investors should exercise caution when evaluating our non-GAAP financial measures.
