Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company’s management refers to these non-GAAP financial measures in making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operating performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management’s internal comparisons to the Company’s historical operating results and comparisons to competitors’ operating results. We include these non-GAAP financial measures (which should be viewed as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, their comparable GAAP measures) in this press release because we believe they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency into the supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges for all periods presented. For the second quarter of 2010, the Company applied a non-GAAP effective tax rate it expects to achieve for the remainder of the year of approximately 39%. The Company believes that the use of the non-GAAP tax rate it expects to achieve for the remainder of the year is a more useful measure as it allows management and investors to compare its operating results on a more consistent basis over multiple periods without the impact of significant variations in the tax rate. For a reconciliation of our GAAP and non-GAAP financial results, please refer to our Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures, which is included in this press release.
