Statement on Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share

(in thousands, except share and per share data)


Statement on Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, including “non-GAAP net income”, “net income on a non-GAAP basis”, “non-GAAP net income per share”, “non-GAAP EPS” and “net income per share on a non-GAAP basis”. These non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with GAAP and are not meant to be a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures of “net income”, “EPS” or “net income per share”. Rather, these non-GAAP financial measures should be evaluated in conjunction with its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and the Company’s financial statements as a whole.
