Executive Commentary:

“In 2010 we delivered record revenue, deferred revenue, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share and operating cash flow. Our performance accelerated throughout the year and we ended the fourth quarter achieving very strong record results. As we enter 2011, the momentum we have in our business serves as strong validation of our strategy and the confidence that our customers, partners and employees have in the proposed combination of McAfee and Intel. We remain very comfortable with our ability as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Intel to effectively drive innovation in the security industry for years to come,” said McAfee President and Chief Executive Officer, Dave DeWalt

“Looking forward we expect to continue to define the marketplace with our comprehensive portfolio of endpoint, network and cloud-based security technologies. With the proliferation of IP connected devices and continued growth in the security threat landscape, McAfee is very well positioned to further expand the global reach of our security protection driven by growth trends in mobility, virtualization and embedded devices,” continued DeWalt.

Disclosure Statements and Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various performance measures. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, we also consider adjusted net revenue, gross profit, operating income and net income, which we refer to as “non-GAAP net revenue,” "non-GAAP gross profit," "non-GAAP operating income" and "non-GAAP net income." In calculating non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income, management adjusts for certain items to facilitate its review of the comparability of the company's operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such items are not, in management's review, related to the company's ongoing operating performance.

Non-GAAP net revenue includes prior period deferred revenue that was originally scheduled to be recognized in the second quarter of 2010 from the balance sheet but became delayed until future periods because of the remediation actions taken related to the antivirus signature file update we released in April 2010 that impaired some of our customers' computers. Non-GAAP gross profit excludes expenses related to the remediation actions taken related to the April 2010 antivirus signature file update, amortization of purchased technology, stock-based compensation expense and certain other items. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP operating income exclude expenses related to the remediation actions taken related to the April 2010 antivirus signature file update, amortization of purchased technology and intangibles, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related costs, restructuring charges, provision for income taxes and certain other items. For 2010 and 2009, management believed that the 24 percent effective tax rate was reflective of a long-term normalized tax rate under the global McAfee legal entity and tax structure as of the respective period end.

We present non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because we consider each to be an important supplemental measure of our performance. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to make operational and investment decisions, to evaluate the company's performance and to forecast and to determine compensation. Further, management utilizes these performance measures for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources. In addition, when evaluating potential acquisitions, management adjusts for the items described above in its evaluation of target performance.

We further believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in providing greater transparency to the information used by management in its operational decision making. We believe that calculating non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income also facilitates a comparison of McAfee's underlying operating performance with that of other companies in our industry, which may from time to time use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. However, non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP revenue, GAAP gross profit, GAAP operating income and GAAP net income or any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. In the future, we expect to continue to incur expenses similar to certain of the non-GAAP adjustments described above and exclusion of these items in the presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all of these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Investors and potential investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as analytical tools. Some of the limitations in relying on non-GAAP net income are:
  • Amortization of purchased technology and intangibles, though not directly affecting our current cash position, represents the loss in value as the technology in our industry evolves, is advanced or is replaced over time. The expense associated with this loss in value is not included in the non-GAAP net income presentation and therefore does not reflect the full economic effect of the ongoing cost of maintaining our current technological position in our competitive industry, which is addressed through our research and development program.
  • The company regularly engages in acquisition and integration activities as part of its ongoing business. Therefore, we expect to continue to experience acquisition and retention bonuses, direct acquisition costs and integration costs related to acquisition activity in future periods. Additionally, we expect to continue to incur costs related to our pending acquisition by Intel in future periods.
  • The company's income tax expense will ultimately be based on its GAAP taxable income and actual tax rates in effect, which may differ significantly from the 24 percent rate assumed in our non-GAAP financial measures for 2010 and 2009.
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP net income differently than we do limiting its usefulness as a comparative tool.

In addition, many of the adjustments to our GAAP financial statements result in the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in the company's financial results for the foreseeable future. The company compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. The company further compensates for the limitations of our use of non-GAAP financial measures by presenting comparable GAAP measures equally or more prominently. The company evaluates the non-GAAP financial measures together with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with our GAAP financial measures. For more information, see the consolidated statements of income and the "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" contained in this press release.

This presentation includes non-GAAP measures. Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP measures, the reasons why management uses these measures, the usefulness of these measures and the material limitations of these measures, see items (1) through (11).
 

Items (1) through (11) on the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” table are listed to the right of certain categories under “Net Revenue”, “Gross profit,” “Operating income,” “Net income” and “Net income per share - diluted” and correspond to the categories explained in further detail below under paragraphs (1) through (11).

The non-GAAP financial measures are non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share — diluted, which adjust for the following items: the impact of signature file update, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of purchased technology and intangibles, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, loss on sale/disposal of assets and technology, litigation-related and other costs, marketable securities (accretion) impairment, income taxes and certain other items. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors, and such measures are used by our management, for the reasons associated with each of the adjusting items as described below:

(1)

Impact of signature file update primarily reflects the negative impact during the three months ended June 30, 2010, related to prior-period deferred revenue and additional costs incurred. The deferred revenue was originally scheduled to be recognized from the balance sheet and was delayed into future periods due to actions we took when providing customer care packages to our customers related to our release in April of an anti-virus signature file update that impacted some of our customers. We consider our operating results without this impact when evaluating our ongoing performance as we believe that the exclusion allows for more accurate comparisons of our financial results to previous periods. In addition, we believe it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of the signature file update on our operating results.
 
(2)

Stock-based compensation expense consist of expense relating to stock-based awards issued to employees and outside directors including stock options, restricted stock awards and units, restricted stock units with performance-based vesting and our Employee Stock Purchase Plan. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types, the Company believes that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense allows for more accurate comparisons of our operating results to our peer companies, and for a more accurate comparison of our financial results to previous periods. In addition, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of stock-based compensation expense on our operating results.
 
(3)

Amortization of purchased technology and intangibles are non-cash charges that can be impacted by the timing and magnitude of our acquisitions. The Company considers its operating results without these charges when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes such charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures. The Company believes the assessment of its operations excluding these costs is relevant to its assessment of internal operations and comparisons to the performance of other companies in its industry.
 
(4)

Restructuring charges include excess facility and asset-related restructuring charges and severance costs resulting from reductions of personnel driven by modifications to the Company’s business strategy, such as acquisitions or divestitures. These costs may vary in size based on the Company’s restructuring plan. In addition, the Company’s assumptions are continually evaluated, which may increase or reduce the charges in a specific period. The Company’s management excludes these costs when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes these charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.
 
(5)

Acquisition-related costs (benefits) include direct costs of the acquisition and expenses related to acquisition integration activities. Examples of costs directly related to an acquisition include transactions fees, due diligence costs, acquisition retention bonuses and severance, fair value adjustments related to contingent consideration, amounts or recoveries subject to escrow provisions, and certain legal costs related to acquired litigation. Additionally, we have included direct costs related to our pending acquisition by Intel. These expenses vary significantly in size and amount and are disregarded by the Company’s management when evaluating and predicting earnings trends because these charges are unique to specific acquisitions, and are therefore excluded by the Company when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.
 
(6)

Litigation-related and other costs are charges related to discrete and unusual events where the Company has incurred significant costs which, in the Company’s view, are not incurred in the ordinary course of operations. Examples of such charges include litigation and investigation-related charges. The Company’s management excludes these costs when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes these charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures. Further, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of these charges on its operating results. In the third quarter of 2010, we combined the “Investigation-related and other costs” and “Legal settlements” line items which were previously reported separately into this line item for ease of presentation.
 
(7)

Acquired intangible asset expensed to research and development is related to the purchase of an intangible asset which was expensed to research and development. The Company’s management excludes this cost when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes this cost when presenting non-GAAP financial measures. Further, the Company believes it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact of this cost on its operating results.
 
(8)

Loss on sale/disposal of assets and technology relate to the sale or disposal of assets of the Company. These losses or gains can vary significantly in size and amount. The Company’s management excludes these losses or gains when evaluating its ongoing performance and/or predicting its earnings trends, and therefore excludes these items when presenting non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, in periods where the Company realizes gains or incurs losses on the sale of assets and/or technology, the Company believes it is useful to investors to highlight the specific impact of these amounts on its operating results.
 
(9)

Marketable securities (accretion) impairment includes “other than temporary” declines in the fair value of our available-for-sale securities and subsequent recoveries of these losses. The Company’s management excludes these losses/income when evaluating the company’s ongoing performance and/or predicting earning trends, and therefore excludes these losses/income when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.
 
(10)

Provision for income taxes is our GAAP provision that must be added back to GAAP net income to reconcile to non-GAAP income before taxes.
 
(11)

Non-GAAP provision for income taxes reflects a 24% non-GAAP effective tax rate in 2010 and 2009 which is used by the Company’s management to calculate non-GAAP net income. For 2010 and 2009, management believed that the 24% effective tax rate was reflective of a long-term normalized tax rate under the global McAfee legal entity and tax structure as of the respective period end.
