Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information: The non-GAAP and supplemental information provided in this press release is a supplement to, and not a substitute for, KLA-Tencor's financial results presented in accordance with United States GAAP.

To supplement KLA-Tencor's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information, which is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain costs and expenses, as well as other supplemental information.  The non-GAAP and supplemental information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of KLA-Tencor's operating performance and its prospects in the future.  Specifically, KLA-Tencor believes that the non-GAAP information provides useful measures to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to KLA-Tencor's financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that the company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.  The non-GAAP information is among the budgeting and planning tools that management uses for future forecasting.  However, because there are no standardized or generally accepted definitions for most non-GAAP financial metrics, definitions of non-GAAP financial metrics (for example, determining which costs and expenses to exclude when calculating such a metric) are inherently subject to significant discretion.  As a result, non-GAAP financial metrics may be defined very differently from company to company, or even from period to period within the same company, which can potentially limit the usefulness of such information to an investor.  The presentation of non-GAAP and supplemental information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared and presented in accordance with United States GAAP.

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we provide certain non-GAAP financial information, which is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain costs and expenses, as well as other supplemental information. The non-GAAP and supplemental information is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of our operating performance and our prospects in the future.  Specifically, we believe that the non-GAAP information provides useful measures to both management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to our financial performance by excluding certain costs and expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results.  The non-GAAP information is among the budgeting and planning tools that management uses for future forecasting.  However, because there are no standardized or generally accepted definitions for most non-GAAP financial metrics, definitions of non-GAAP financial metrics (for example, determining which costs and expenses to exclude when calculating such a metric) are inherently subject to significant discretion.  As a result, non-GAAP financial metrics may be defined very differently from company to company, or even from period to period within the same company, which can potentially limit the usefulness of such information to an investor. The presentation of non-GAAP and supplemental information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared and presented in accordance with United States GAAP.

a.

Acquisition related charges includes amortization of intangible assets associated with acquisitions. Management believes that the expense associated with the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets is appropriate to be excluded because a significant portion of the purchase price for acquisitions may be allocated to intangible assets that have short lives, and exclusion of these expenses allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both KLA-Tencor's newly acquired and long-held businesses. Management believes excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.

b.

Restructuring, severance and other related charges include costs associated with employee severance and other exit costs, impairment of certain long lived assets. Management believes excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.

c.

Debt extinguishment loss and recapitalization charges include a pre-tax loss on early extinguishment of debt related to the 6.900% Senior Notes due in 2018, net and certain other expenses incurred in connection with the leveraged recapitalization plan which was completed in the second quarter of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015. Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude these items as they are not indicative of ongoing operating results and, therefore, limit comparability and excluding these items helps investors compare our operating performance with our results in prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies.

d.

Income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments includes the income tax effects of the excluded items noted above as well as additional true up adjustment to the tax rate arising from the tax impacts associated with the pre-tax loss on extinguishment of debt that was recognized in the three months ended December 31, 2014. Management believes that it is appropriate to exclude the tax effects of the items noted above in order to present a more meaningful measure of non-GAAP net income.
