This schedule reconciles the company's GAAP operating income and GAAP net income to its non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income. The company believes that presentation of this schedule provides meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors that is indicative of the company's core 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 forecasting purposes. These non-GAAP measures should not be viewed as a substitute for the company's GAAP results.

 

(a) These adjustments reflect stock based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, impairment charges, and the loss on the sale of product lines.

 

(b) These adjustments include the items described in footnote (a) as well as the non-cash income tax expense and non-cash other income related to write-off of note payables.
