NOTES TO NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Cypress uses the following non-GAAP financial measures which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures:
- Gross margin
- Research and development expenses
- Selling, general and administrative expenses
- Operating income (loss)
- Net income (loss)
- Diluted net income (loss) per share
The non-GAAP measures set forth above exclude charges related to our merger with Spansion, stock-based compensation, and other adjustments. Non-GAAP revenue includes the effect of revenue from an intellectual property license agreement. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of Cypress's operations that, when viewed in conjunction with Cypress's GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting Cypress's business and operations. Management uses these non-GAAP measures for strategic and business decision-making, internal budgeting, forecasting and resource allocation processes. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management's internal comparisons to Cypress's historical operating results and comparisons to competitors' operating results. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G and to make clear to our investors the adjustments we make to GAAP measures, we have provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
