Cautions Regarding Forward Looking Statements
All statements included or incorporated by reference in this release and the related conference call for analysts and investors, other than statements or characterizations of historical fact, are forward-looking statements that are based on our current expectations, estimates and projections about our business and industry, management’s beliefs, and certain assumptions made by us, all of which are subject to change. Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “predicts,” and similar terms, and variations or negatives of these words. Examples of forward-looking statements in this release include the Company’s financial outlook for its second quarter of fiscal year 2015, potential new markets for the Company’s products and size of addressable markets, and anticipated new product, design win and new customer growth in fiscal year 2015. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and the Company’s actual results may differ significantly from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. Factors and uncertainties that could affect the Company’s forward-looking statements include, among other things: identification of feasible new product initiatives, management of R&D efforts and the resulting successful development of new products and product platforms; acceptance by customers of the Company’s products; reliance on key suppliers; rapid technological change in the industries in which the Company operates; and competitive factors, including pricing pressures and the introduction by others of new products with similar or better functionality than the Company’s products. These and other risks are more fully described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K that was filed on December 4, 2014, which should be read in conjunction herewith for a further discussion of important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, GAAP measures. Other companies may use different non-GAAP measures and presentation of results.
We provide non-GAAP measures of non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP
income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) as a
supplement to financial results based on GAAP operating expenses, GAAP
income (loss) from operations and GAAP net income (loss). The Company
believes that the additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors
for the purpose of financial analysis. We believe the presentation of
non-GAAP measures provides investors with additional insight into
underlying operating results and prospects for the future by excluding
gains, losses and other charges that are considered by management to be
outside of the Company’s core operating results. Management uses these
measures internally to evaluate the Company’s in-period operating
performance before taking into account these non-operating gains, losses
and charges. In addition, the measures are used for planning and
forecasting of the Company’s performance in future periods.
