* Convertible Notes, Non-cash Interest Expense are included in FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 470 Debt.
** Fully diluted share count can vary for, among other things, the actual exercise of options or restricted stock units, the incremental dilutive shares from all of the company’s convertible senior subordinated notes, and the repurchase or the issuance of stock or the sale of treasury shares. Please refer to the table on our website for potential changes to the Fully Diluted Share Count.

**** Regulation G and other provisions of the securities laws regulate the use of financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures provide important supplemental information to investors. We use these measures, together with GAAP measures, for internal managerial purposes and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. However, we do not, and you should not, rely on non-GAAP financial measures alone as measures of our performance. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that – when taken together with GAAP results and the reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures that we also provide in our releases – provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with other companies’ non-GAAP financial measures, even if they have similar names.

competitive product announcements; revenues and operating performance;
poor economic conditions and markets, including the current credit
markets; the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry; changes in
demand for our products; changes in inventories at customers and
distributors; technological and product development risks; availability
of raw materials; competitors' actions; pricing and gross margin
pressures; loss of key customers; order cancellations or reduced
bookings; changes in manufacturing yields; control of costs and
expenses; significant litigation; risks associated with decisions to
expend cash reserves for various uses such as debt prepayment or
acquisitions rather than to retain such cash for future needs; risks
associated with acquisitions and dispositions; effects of exchange rate
fluctuations and changes in the economy and our business; risks
associated with leverage and restrictive covenants in debt agreements;
risks associated with international operations, including foreign
employment and labor matters associated with unions and collective
bargaining agreements; the threat or occurrence of international armed
conflict and terrorist activities both in the United States and
internationally; risks related to new legal requirements; risks and
costs associated with increased and new regulation of corporate
governance and disclosure standards; and risks involving environmental
