Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Total adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be construed as substitutes for, or superior to, GAAP net income, and net income per diluted share as a measure of financial performance. However, management uses both GAAP financial measures and the disclosed non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate and manage the Company’s operations and to better understand its business. Further, management believes the inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplementary information to and facilitates analysis by investors in evaluating the Company’s financial performance, results of operations and trends. The Company’s calculation of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share and adjusted EBITDA, may not be comparable to similarly designated measures reported by other companies, since companies and investors may differ as to what type of events warrant adjustment.
The following table reconciles reported net income to adjusted net income.

(a)   On February 1, 2012, the Company announced that it had entered into the AstraZeneca License Agreement. As part of the AstraZeneca License Agreement, AstraZeneca granted to the Company an exclusive license to commercialize the tablet, orally disintegrating and nasal spray formulations of Zomig® (zolmitriptan) products for the treatment of migraine headaches in the United States and in certain U.S. territories. Under the terms of the AstraZeneca License Agreement, the Company agreed to pay AstraZeneca quarterly payments totaling $130.0 million during 2012 of which $30.0 million was paid in the second quarter ($55.0 million for the first six months ended June 30, 2012). During the specified product transition period pursuant to the AstraZeneca License Agreement, the Company will receive the benefit of the gross profit ($16.2 million and $46.2 million for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively) from U.S. Zomig® sales by AstraZeneca commencing from January 1, 2012 and ending when the Company commences commercialization of the Zomig® products. The benefit of the gross profit received from AstraZeneca is recorded as a reduction of the $130.0 million to be paid by the Company to AstraZeneca during 2012 and is not reflected within the Company’s income.
(b) Amortization and acquisition-related costs from the February 2012 AstraZeneca License Agreement.
