Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share, which we believe are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations." Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and forecast future periods. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax effects, adjustments related to our tax valuation allowance and the interim tax cost of the one-time transfer of intellectual property rights between Riverbed legal entities:
Support deferred revenue: Business combination accounting rules require us to account for the fair value of support contracts assumed in connection with our acquisitions. The book value of the acquisition deferred support revenue was reduced by $4 million in the adjustment to fair value. Because these are typically one-year contracts, our GAAP revenues for an one year period subsequent to the acquisition of a business do not reflect the full amount of service revenues on assumed support contracts that would have otherwise been recorded by the acquired entity. The non-GAAP adjustment is intended to reflect the full amount of such revenues. We believe this adjustment is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of our business because we have historically experienced high renewal rates on support contracts, although we cannot be certain that customers will renew these contracts.
Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation and related payroll tax expenses from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.
Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangible assets from our non-GAAP net income. Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense, and it is not part of our core operations. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to future period revenues as well.
Acquisition related and other expenses (credits): We incur significant expenses in connection with our acquisitions and also incurred certain other operating expenses, which we would not have otherwise incurred in the periods presented as a part of our continuing operations. Acquisition related and other expenses consist of transaction costs, costs for transitional employees, other acquired employee related retention costs, integration related professional services, adjustments to the fair value of the acquisition related contingent consideration, the write-down of certain acquired in-progress research and development intangibles, and foreign exchange losses on the acquisition related contingent consideration. We believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our total operating expenses

(1) Stock-based compensation expense is calculated in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation effective January 1, 2006.
(2) Payroll tax on stock-based compensation represents the incremental cost for employer payroll taxes on stock option exercises and restricted stock units vested and released.
(3) The intangible assets recorded at fair value as a result of our acquisition are amortized over the estimated useful life of the respective asset.
(4) The inventory fair value adjustment recorded pursuant to our acquisition is excluded from our non-GAAP operating expenses as this cost would not have otherwise occurred in the period presented.
(5) We incurred expenses in connection with our acquisitions, which would not have otherwise occurred in the period presented as part of our operating expenses; therefore, these costs are excluded from our non-GAAP operating expenses.
(6) Business combination accounting rules require us to account for the fair value of deferred revenue assumed in connection with an acquisition. The non-GAAP adjustment is intended to reflect the full amount of support and service revenue that would have otherwise been recorded by the acquired entity.
(7) The non-GAAP tax rate excludes the income tax effects of non-GAAP adjustments. Additionally, the non-GAAP tax rate includes adjustments to our tax valuation allowance on deferred tax assets and excludes the interim tax cost of the one-time transfer of intellectual property rights between our legal entities.
(8) We incurred expenses, including revaluation of the contingent consideration, in connection with our acquisitions, which would not have otherwise occurred in the period presented as part of our other income (expense); therefore, these costs are excluded from our non-GAAP operating expenses.
