Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain expenses, gains and losses, such as the effects of (a) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation expense, (c) restructuring and other charges, net, (d) non-cash income tax expense, (e) restructuring inventory adjustment, (f) amortization of financing activities expenses, (g) change in fair value of warrants, and (h) loss (gain) on the liquidation of foreign subsidiaries. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring the Company’s performance, and the Company believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes. These non-GAAP measures are considered to be reflective of the Company’s core operating results as they more closely reflect the essential revenue-generating activities of the Company and direct operating expenses (resulting in cash expenditures) needed to perform these revenue-generating activities. The Company also believes, based on feedback provided to the Company during its earnings calls’ Q&A sessions and discussions with the investment community, that the non-GAAP financial measures it provides are necessary to allow the investment community to construct their valuation models to better align its results and projections with its competitors and market sector, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to certain expenses, gains and losses.

The non-GAAP financial information is presented using a consistent methodology from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP information to GAAP information is included in the tables below. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for or superior to financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP financial measures includes the performance of Software-Systems and Embedded Products and Hardware Services.

The Company excludes the following corporate and other expenses, reversals, gains and losses from its non-GAAP financial measures, when applicable:

(a) Amortization of acquired intangible assets: Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets primarily relate to core and existing technologies, trade name and customer relationships that were acquired with the acquisitions of Continuous Computing and Pactolus. The Company excludes the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because it does not reflect the Company’s ongoing business and it does not have a direct correlation to the operation of the Company’s business. In addition, in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally recognizes expenses for internally-developed intangible assets as they are incurred, notwithstanding the potential future benefit such assets may provide. Unlike internally-developed intangible assets, however, and also in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally capitalizes the cost of acquired intangible assets and recognizes that cost as an expense over the useful lives of the assets acquired. As a result of their GAAP treatment, there is an inherent lack of comparability between the financial performance of internally-developed intangible assets and acquired intangible assets. Accordingly, the Company believes it is useful to provide, as a supplement to its GAAP operating results, non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the amortization of acquired intangibles in order to enhance the period-over-period comparison of its operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to this expense.

(b) Stock-based compensation: Stock-based compensation consists of expenses recorded under GAAP, in connection with stock awards such as stock options, restricted stock awards and restricted stock units granted under the Company’s equity incentive plans and shares issued pursuant to the Company’s employee stock purchase plan. The Company excludes stock-based compensation from non-GAAP financial measures because it is a non-cash measurement that does not reflect the Company’s ongoing business and because the Company believes that investors want to understand the impact on the Company of the adoption of the applicable GAAP surrounding share based payments; the Company believes that the provision of non-GAAP information that excludes stock-based compensation improves the ability of investors to compare its period-over-period operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to this expense.

(c) Restructuring and other charges, net: Restructuring and other charges, net relates to costs associated with non-recurring events. These include costs incurred for employee severance, acquisition or divestiture activities, excess facility costs, certain legal costs, asset related charges and other expenses associated with business restructuring activities. Restructuring and other charges are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities. Although the Company has engaged in various restructuring activities over the past several years, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. The Company does not engage in restructuring activities in the ordinary course of business. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges from its non-GAAP financial measures because it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.

(d) Income taxes: Non-GAAP income tax expense is equal to the Company’s projected cash tax expense. Adjustments to GAAP income tax expense are required to eliminate the recognition of tax expense from profitable entities where we utilize deferred tax assets to offset current period tax liabilities. We believe that providing this non-GAAP figure is useful to our investors as it more closely represents the true economic impact of our tax positions.

(e) Restructuring inventory adjustment: Includes inventory write-downs and benefits associated with non-recurring events, predominantly tied to the Company’s decision to end-of-life or discontinue certain products for which the Company has no future ongoing demand. During 2017, the Company recorded such charges tied to discrete product decisions within its Hardware-Solutions segment associated with its DCEngine and certain legacy embedded products. Restructuring inventory write-downs and benefits are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities. Although the Company has incurred various inventory write-downs over the past several years, they have generally been associated with ongoing business activities. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude end-of-life and product discontinuance inventory write-downs and benefits related to those write-downs from its non-GAAP financial measures because it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.

(f) Amortization of financing activities: Amortization of financing activities consists of expenses recorded under GAAP related to the amortization of debt issuance costs, the amortization of warrant issuance costs, and terminations costs related to previous unamortized debt issuance costs from terminated financing agreements. The Company excludes amortization of financing activities because they are not considered to reflect the core cash-generating performance of the business and therefore is excluded from our non-GAAP results.

(g) Change in fair value of warrants: Represents the change to the current fair value of the warranty liability. The Company excludes the change in fair value of warrants from non-GAAP financial measures because it is a non-cash measurement that does not reflect the Company’s ongoing business. The Company believes that the provision of non-GAAP information that excludes changes in fair value of warrants improves the ability of investors to compare its period-over-period operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability based on the current fair value of the underlying warrants.

(h) Loss (gain) on the liquidation of foreign subsidiaries: On a non-recurring basis we have recorded a gain or loss to reflect the realization of accumulated foreign currency translation adjustments upon the liquidation of certain international subsidiaries. This gain or loss represents the net unrealized foreign currency translation gains or losses accumulated from changes in exchange rates and the related effects from the translation of assets and liabilities of these entities. The liquidation of foreign subsidiaries occurs on an infrequent basis and management does not view the impact of this non-cash charge as indicative of the ongoing performance of the Company. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude this gain from its non-GAAP financial measures because it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.
