Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Information



Management uses certain Non-GAAP financial measures such as Non-GAAP earnings per share, which exclude non-cash stock-based compensation, certain intellectual property litigation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition related items, non-cash interest expense on convertible notes, and intangible asset and goodwill impairment charges. Management does not consider these costs in evaluating the continuing operations of the Company. Therefore, management calculates the Non-GAAP financial measures provided in this earnings release excluding these costs and uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to enable it to analyze further, and more consistently, the period-to-period financial performance of its core business operations. Management believes that providing investors with these Non-GAAP measures gives them additional important information to enable them to assess, in the same way management assesses, the Company's current and future continuing operations. These Non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP, and may be different from Non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Set forth below are reconciliations of the Non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measure.
