This press release describes financial measures for non-GAAP revenue, operating income, net income, net income per diluted share and free cash flow that exclude deferred revenue fair value adjustments, acquisition-related cost of revenue, business consolidation, restructuring and headquarter-relocation costs, stock-based compensation expense, note receivable impairment, purchased intangible asset amortization, royalty income fair value adjustments, amortization of note receivable discount, gain on sale of real estate, gain on sale of intellectual property, write-off of lease related assets and other non-operating expense. Additionally, our non-GAAP net income reflects an effective pro-forma tax rate of 40 percent. These financial measures are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful measure of the Company's operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company's ongoing operating performance. Further, management and the Board of Directors utilize these measures, in addition to GAAP measures, when evaluating and comparing the Company's operating performance against internal financial forecasts and budgets. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

For additional information on the items excluded by the Company from its non-GAAP financial measures please refer to the Form 8-K regarding this release that was furnished today to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
