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”, “net income per share on a non-GAAP basis” and “non-GAAP EPS growth rate”. 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”, “GAAP EPS growth rate” 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.
