Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating income and operating margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP dilutive net income per share and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We also provide projected second quarter 2014 non-GAAP dilutive net income per share and non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and forecast future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items:

Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

Employer payroll tax expense associated with stock option exercises: We have excluded the employer payroll tax expense associated with stock option exercises in order to provide a complete picture of the company's recurring core business operating results. Stock options will continue to be used as a method to compensate certain employees for the foreseeable future.

Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangible assets. Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense and it is not part of our core operations. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenue earned during the periods presented and will contribute to future period revenue as well.

Legal settlement benefit, net: We have excluded non-recurring patent infringement settlements. We will continue to be party to litigation and subject to claims related to intellectual property infringement arising in the ordinary course of business.

Our non-GAAP Financial Measures are described as follows:

Non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit as reported on our condensed consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, employer payroll tax expense associated with stock option exercises and intangible asset amortization expense. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit divided by revenue.

Non-GAAP operating income and operating margin. Non-GAAP operating income is income (loss) from operations as reported on our condensed consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, employer payroll tax expense associated with stock option exercises, intangible asset amortization expense and legal settlement benefit, net. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP operating income divided by revenue.

Non-GAAP net income and diluted income per share. Non-GAAP net income is net income as reported on our condensed consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, employer payroll tax expense associated with stock option exercises, intangible asset amortization expense, legal settlement benefit, net and the related tax effects of these non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share is non-GAAP net income divided by the non-GAAP weighted-average diluted shares outstanding.

For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures."
