You should not place undue reliance on these statements.

In addition, any statements that refer to projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements.

These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, there are or will be important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement. We believe that the factors that may affect our business, future operating results and financial condition include, but are not limited to, the following: any faltering or uncertainty in global economic conditions, the highly cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry, intense competition in the semiconductor industry, unsuccessful product development or failure to obtain market acceptance of our products, downturns in the end markets we serve, failure to make or deliver products in a timely manner, unavailability of raw materials, services, supplies or manufacturing capacity, delays in production or in implementing new production techniques, product defects, or unreliability of products, and adverse results in litigation matters.

Non-GAAP Reporting
To supplement its consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Intersil uses non-GAAP financial measures, which are adjusted from the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures to exclude certain items, as described in detail below. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional and useful way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed in conjunction with Intersil's GAAP results, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the various factors and trends affecting the Company's business and operations. It should also be noted that Intersil's non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures used by Intersil include:

  • Gross profit;
  • Operating expenses;
  • Provision (benefit) for income taxes;
  • Operating income (loss);
  • Net income (loss);
  • Diluted earnings (loss) per share; and
  • Weighted average shares outstanding – diluted.

The Company presents non-GAAP financial measures because the investor community uses non-GAAP results in its analysis and comparison of historical results and projections of the Company's future operating results. These non-GAAP results exclude acquisition-related expense, restructuring and related costs, equity-based compensation expense, and certain other expenses and benefits. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability of the business. These non-GAAP results are also consistent with the way management internally analyzes Intersil's financial results.

There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures supplement, and should be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Investors should review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the accompanying press release.

As presented in the "Non-GAAP Results" tables in the accompanying press release, each of the non-GAAP financial measures excludes one or more of the following items:

Acquisition-related charges. Acquisition-related charges are not factored into management's evaluation of potential acquisitions or Intersil's performance after completion of acquisitions, because they are not related to the Company's core operating performance. Adjustments of these items provide investors with a basis to compare Intersil's performance to other companies without the variability caused by purchase accounting. Acquisition-related expenses primarily include:

  • Amortization of purchased intangibles, which include purchased intangibles such as purchased technology, patents, customer relationships, trademarks, backlog and non-compete agreements.
  • One-time charges associated with completing an acquisition including contract termination costs.

Other adjustments. These items are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not related to the core operating activities and on-going future operating performance of Intersil. Excluding this data allows investors to better compare Intersil's period-over-period performance without such expense, which Intersil believes may be useful to the investor community. Other adjustments primarily include:
