1 A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

2 Includes the impact of a USD 1.9 million sale of previously-acquired patents during the fourth quarter of 2012.

3 Includes the impact of a USD 3.7 million sale of previously-acquired patents during fiscal 2012. In addition, fiscal 2011 includes the impact of a USD 2.6 million sale of previously-acquired patents.

4 Includes the impact of USD 14.5 million paid for the purchase of land and buildings near our Silicon Valley headquarters during the third quarter of 2012.

5 Includes the impact of a USD 1.5 million non-recurring cumulative out-of-period adjustment recorded during the fourth quarter of 2012 to reflect a true-up related to forfeitures of stock awards granted to employees. The adjustment resulted in lower stock-based compensation expense and higher operating income and net income during the fourth quarter of 2012. We believe the impact of the adjustment is not material to the current or prior fiscal periods.
