Non-GAAP Measures

Keysight uses a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, for making operating decisions and for forecasting and planning for future periods. The definition of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others, and such non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Keysight generally uses non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management’s comparisons to historic operating results, to competitors’ operating results and to guidance provided to investors. In addition, Keysight believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides greater transparency to investors of information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

(1) Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share exclude primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. In addition, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share also excludes any tax benefits or expenses that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Earnings per share is based on diluted shares. Reconciliation between non-GAAP gross margin and GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income and GAAP net income for Q4’15 and FY2015, is set forth on pages 5-6 of the attached tables, along with additional information regarding the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(2) Revenues, excluding the impact of fair value adjustment to acquisition-related deferred revenue balances for the Anite acquisition are a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation between GAAP revenue and non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP revenue excluding currency and acquisitions (core basis) is provided on page 8 of the attached tables, along with additional information regarding the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(3) Non-GAAP earnings per share as projected for Q1 FY16 exclude primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. Beginning in Q1 FY16, Keysight intends to utilize a fixed long-term projected non-GAAP tax rate. When projecting this long-term rate, Keysight will exclude any tax benefits or expenses that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Additionally, Keysight will evaluate its current long-term projections, current tax structure and other factors such as existing tax positions in various jurisdictions and key tax holidays in major jurisdictions where Keysight operates. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate should eliminate the effects of non-recurring and period specific items. This tax rate could be subject to change in the future for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to significant changes in geographic earnings mix including acquisition activity, or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions where Keysight operates. Most of these excluded amounts pertain to events that have not yet occurred and are not currently possible to estimate with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Therefore, no reconciliation to GAAP amounts has been provided.

(a) The adjustment for taxes excludes tax benefits that management believes are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability, including a tax benefit of $197M resulted from a tax ruling obtained from Singapore that allows Keysight to amortize the value of the intellectual property acquired from Agilent in the separation. For the three months ended October 31, 2015 and 2014, management uses a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 17% and 16%, respectively, that we believe to be indicative of on-going operations.

 
Historical amounts are reclassified to conform with current presentation.
 
We provide non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share amounts in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our prospects for the future. These supplemental measures exclude, among other things, charges related to the amortization of intangibles, the impact of restructuring and related costs, asset impairments, acquisition and integration costs, share based compensation, separation and related costs and acquisition related fair value adjustments. Some of the exclusions, such as impairments, may be beyond the control of management. Further, some may be less predictable than revenue derived from our core businesses (the day to day business of selling our products and services). These reasons provide the basis for management's belief that the measures are useful.
Restructuring and related costs include incremental expenses incurred in the period associated with publicly announced major restructuring programs, usually aimed at material changes in business and/or cost structure. Such costs may include one-time termination benefits, asset impairments, facility-related costs and contract termination fees. and other one time reorganization costs.
Intangible amortization include non-cash intangible amortization recognized in connection with acquisitions.
Asset impairments and write-downs include assets that have been written-down to their fair value.
Share-based compensation includes expense for all share-based payment awards made to our employees and directors including employee stock option awards, restricted stock units, employee stock purchases made under our employee stock purchase plan (“ESPP”) and performance share awards granted to selected members of our senior management under the long-term performance plan (“LTPP”) based on estimated fair values.
Acquisition and Integration costs include all incremental expenses incurred to effect a business combination which have been expensed during the period. Such acquisition costs may include advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees. Such integration costs may include expenses directly related to integration of business and facility operations, information technology systems and infrastructure and other employee-related costs.
Acquisition related fair value adjustments includes business combination accounting effects from the acquisition including reduction in revenue and increase in cost of sales due to the respective estimated fair value adjustments to deferred revenue and inventory.

Separation and related costs include all incremental expenses incurred in order to effect the separation of Keysight from Agilent, including the cost of new hires specifically required to operate two separate companies. The intent is to only include in non-GAAP expenses what would not have been incurred if we had no plan to spin-off. These costs include, among other things, branding, legal, accounting and other advisory fees and other costs to separate and transition from Agilent.

 
Our management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of our core businesses, to estimate future core performance and to compensate employees. Since management finds this measure to be useful, we believe that our investors benefit from seeing our results “through the eyes” of management in addition to seeing our GAAP results. This information facilitates our management’s internal comparisons to our historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors.
 
Our management recognizes items such as amortization of intangibles, restructuring charges etc. that can have a material impact on our cash flows and/or our net income. Our GAAP financial statements including our statement of cash flows portray those effects. Although we believe it is useful for investors to see core performance free of special items, investors should understand that the excluded items are actual expenses that may impact the cash available to us for other uses. To gain a complete picture of all effects on the company’s profit and loss from any and all events, management does (and investors should) rely upon the GAAP income statement. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the company, which is only a subset, albeit a critical one, of the company’s performance.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.

Non GAAP Revenue is defined to exclude the fair value adjustments to acquisition related deferred revenue balances for the Anite acquisition.
 
Core revenue is defined as Non- GAAP revenue excluding the impact of currency and acquisitions.
 
Management believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting an additional way of viewing aspects of Keysight's operations that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures, help our investors to better identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitate easier comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We excluded the effect of recent acquisitions and divestitures because the nature, size and number of these can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers, which we believe may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult.
 
 
The preliminary reconciliation of GAAP to Core revenue is based on our current information.

(a) We compare the year-over-year change in revenue excluding the effect of M&A and foreign currency rate fluctuations to assess the performance of our underlying business. To determine the impact of currency fluctuations, current period results for entities reporting in currencies other than United States dollars are converted into United States dollars at the actual exchange rate in effect during the respective prior periods.
 
Core revenue is defined as Non- GAAP revenue excluding the impact of currency and M&A.
 
The preliminary reconciliation of Core revenue by region excluding the impact of M&A and currency adjustments is estimated based on our current information.
