We believe presenting revenue growth with constant currency revenue measures helps investors understand how currency exchange rate fluctuations have affected our revenue growth. We recognize, however, that constant currency measures have limitations, particularly as the currency effects that are eliminated constitute a significant element of our revenue and could materially impact our performance. We caution the readers of our financial reports to consider constant currency measures only in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, changes in revenue, operating expenses, operating profit, or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
