Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the company's consolidated financial statements, which
are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP
financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses
recorded under ASC 718-10, amortization of acquisition-related
intangible assets and the write-up of acquired inventory, acquisition
expenses, severance and transition expenses, and the tax effects of
these items. The company uses these measures in its own financial and
operational decision-making and, with respect to one measure, in setting
performance targets for employee-compensation purposes. Further, the
company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer an important
analytical tool to help investors understand the company’s core
operating results and trends, and to facilitate comparability with the
operating results of other companies that provide similar measures.
These non-GAAP measures have certain limitations as analytical tools and
are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP
financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is an
important component of the company’s compensation mix, and will continue
to result in significant expenses in the company’s GAAP results for the
foreseeable future, but is not reflected in the non-GAAP measures. Also,
other companies, including companies in Power Integrations’ industry,
may calculate non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness
as comparative measures.
