Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating our results, the non-GAAP measures of "Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses (hereafter "Non-GAAP G&A expenses"), "Non-GAAP cost of integrated contracts", "Non-GAAP other income, net", "Non-GAAP interest expenses", "Non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys" and "Non-GAAP earnings per share" serve as additional indicators of our operating performance and not as a replacement for other measures in accordance with US GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors, as they exclude the 1) share-based compensation expenses, 2) amortization of acquired intangibles and 3) acquisition-related consideration adjustments. They will not result in any cash inflows or outflows. We believe that using non-GAAP measures help our shareholders to have a better understanding of our operating results and growth prospects. In addition, given the business nature of Hollysys, it has been a common practice for investors and analysts to use such non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company. 

The following table provides a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures for the periods indicated:
