The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the company may be different than non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.

The non-GAAP and supplemental information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of the company's operating performance.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To provide investors and others with additional information regarding Spansion's operating results, we have disclosed in this press release certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted operating income, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted EBITDA. These non-GAAP financial measures are a supplement to, and not a substitute for or superior to, the company's results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the company may be different than non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of the company's operating performance. Specifically, the company believes the non-GAAP information provides useful measures to investors regarding the company's financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that the company believes are not indicative of its core operating results, as well as the impact of fresh start accounting. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results or guidance prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Spansion has provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted operating income differs from GAAP operating income in that it excludes the impact of non-recurring items, amortization of intangibles, fresh start accounting related adjustments, one-time restructuring charges or credits and stock compensation expense.
  • Adjusted net income differs from GAAP net income in that it excludes the impact of non-recurring items, amortization of intangibles, fresh start accounting related adjustments, one-time restructuring charges or credits, stock compensation expense and is adjusted for the associated tax impact of all these changes.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure, and it is EBITDA adjusted for the impact of IP amortization and stock-based compensation.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Reflect Spansion's ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparison and analysis of trends in Spansion's business, as they exclude expenses that are not reflective of ongoing operating results;
  • Provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating Spansion's operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods;
  • Provide additional view of the performance of the company by adding interest expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization to the net income. Further adjustments due to fresh start accounting and stock compensation expense attempt to exclude items that are either non-cash or non-recurring in nature.
