Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial results prepared under GAAP, Maxim uses non-GAAP measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP results to exclude special expense items related to accelerated depreciation, intangible asset amortization, acquisition related inventory write up to fair value, severance and restructuring, stock option related litigation and associated settlement, and the tax provision impacts due to international restructuring. Management does not consider these special expenses in evaluating the core operational activities of Maxim. Management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and evaluate Maxim 's current performance. Many analysts covering Maxim use the non-GAAP measures as well. Given management's use of these non-GAAP measures, Maxim believes these measures are important to investors in understanding Maxim 's current and future operating results as seen through the eyes of management. In addition, management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in enabling them to better assess changes in Maxim 's core business across different time periods. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP financial data and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names. The non-GAAP measures displayed in the table above include the following:

GAAP gross profit excluding special expense items

The use of GAAP gross profit excluding special expense items allows management to evaluate the gross margin of the company's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special expense items including  intangible asset amortization and acquisition related inventory write up to fair value. In addition, it is an important component of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP gross profit excluding special expense items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our revenue generation performance relative to the direct costs of revenue of Maxim 's core businesses.

GAAP operating expenses excluding special expense items

The use of GAAP operating expenses excluding special expense items allows management to evaluate the operating expenses of the company's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special expense items including intangible asset amortization, impairment of long-lived assets, severance and restructuring, and stock option related litigation and associated settlement.   In addition, it is an important component of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP operating expenses excluding special expense items to enable investors and analysts to evaluate our core business and its direct operating expenses.   

GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special expense items

The use of GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special expense items allow management to evaluate the operating results of Maxim 's core businesses and trends across different reporting periods on a consistent basis, independent of special expense items including intangible asset amortization, impairment of long-lived assets, acquisition related inventory write up to fair value, severance and restructuring, stock option related litigation and associated settlement, and the tax provision impacts due to international restructuring. In addition, they are important components of management's internal performance measurement and reward process as it is used to assess the current and historical financial results of the business, for strategic decision making, preparing budgets and forecasting future results. Management presents GAAP net income and GAAP net income per share excluding special expense items to enable investors and analysts to understand the results of operations of Maxim 's core businesses and to compare our results of operations on a more consistent basis against that of other companies in our industry.
