Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the company's consolidated financial statements, which
are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP
financial information that excludes stock-based compensation expenses
recorded under ASC 718-10, amortization of acquisition-related
intangible assets and the write-up of acquired inventory, acquisition
expenses, severance and transition expenses, amortization of in-place
lease intangible assets, and the tax effects of these items. The company
uses these measures in its own financial and operational decision-making
and, with respect to one measure, in setting performance targets for
employee-compensation purposes. Further, the company believes that these
non-GAAP measures offer an important analytical tool to help investors
understand the company’s core operating results and trends, and to
facilitate comparability with the operating results of other companies
that provide similar measures. These non-GAAP measures have certain
limitations as analytical tools and are not meant to be considered in
isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial information. For
example, stock-based compensation is an important component of the
company’s compensation mix, and will continue to result in significant
expenses in the company’s GAAP results for the foreseeable future, but
is not reflected in the non-GAAP measures. Also, other companies,
including companies in Power Integrations’ industry, may calculate
non-GAAP measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative
