  GAAP net income (loss) $17,247 $(2,532) $728
  Net income (loss) per basic share $0.32 $(0.05) $0.01

These adjustments reconcile the Company's GAAP results of operations to the reported non-GAAP results of operations. The Company believes that presentation of net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share excluding stock-based compensation expense, severance adjustment, tax on change in legal structure, and gain on investment provides meaningful supplemental information to investors, as well as management, that is indicative of the Company's ongoing operating results and facilitates comparison of operating results across reporting periods. The Company uses these non-GAAP measures when evaluating its financial results as well as for internal planning and budgeting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results, and may be different than non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
