To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use non-GAAP measures of operating results, net income and net income per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain expenses, gains and losses. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of our current financial performance and our prospects for the future. Specifically, we believe the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors as these non-GAAP results exclude certain expenses, gains and losses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results and because they are consistent with the financial models and estimates published by many analysts who follow us. For example, because the non-GAAP results exclude the expenses we recorded for share-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets related to acquisitions of Pliant Technology, Inc. in May 2011, FlashSoft Corporation in February 2012, Schooner Information Technology, Inc. in June 2012, SMART Storage Systems in August 2013 and Fusion-io, Inc. in July 2014, impairment of acquisition-related in-process research and development intangible assets, non-cash economic interest expense associated with the convertible senior notes, non-cash change in fair value of the liability component of the convertible senior notes due to the conversion of a portion of the 1.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2017 and related tax adjustments, we believe the inclusion of non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency in our financial reporting. In addition, our non-GAAP diluted shares are adjusted for the impact of expensing share-based compensation and include the impact of the call options which, when exercised, will offset the issuance of dilutive shares from the convertible senior notes, while our GAAP diluted shares exclude the anti-dilutive impact of these call options. These non-GAAP results are some of the primary indicators management uses for assessing our performance, allocating resources, and planning and forecasting future periods. Further, management uses non-GAAP information that excludes certain non-cash charges, such as share-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, impairment of acquisition-related in-process research and development intangible assets, non-cash economic interest expense associated with the convertible senior notes, non-cash change in fair value of the liability component of the convertible senior notes due to the conversion of a portion of the 1.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2017 and related tax adjustments, as these non-GAAP charges do not reflect the cash operating results of the business or the ongoing results. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures may be different than the non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

 
(a)

Share-based compensation expense.

 
(b) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, primarily developed technology, customer relationships, and trademarks and trade names related to the acquisitions of Pliant Technology, Inc., FlashSoft Corporation, Schooner Information Technology, Inc., SMART Storage Systems and Fusion-io, Inc.
 
(c) Impairment of acquisition-related in-process research and development intangible assets related to the acquisition of Fusion-io, Inc.
 
(d) Incremental interest expense related to the non-cash economic interest expense associated with the convertible senior notes and the non-cash change in fair value of the liability component of the convertible senior notes due to the conversion of a portion of the 1.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2017.
 
(e) Income taxes associated with certain non-GAAP to GAAP adjustments and the effects of one-time income tax adjustments recorded in a specific quarter for GAAP purposes are reflected on a forecast basis in our non-GAAP tax rate but not in our forecasted GAAP tax rate.
 
(f) Non-GAAP diluted shares are adjusted for the impact of expensing share-based compensation and include the impact of offsetting shares from the call options related to the convertible senior notes.

(1) The 1.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2017 are convertible through June 30, 2015 as a result of the Company’s common stock price exceeding the trigger price set forth in the indenture. Accordingly, the carrying value of the notes is reported as short-term debt as of March 29, 2015 and will remain so while the notes are convertible. The Convertible short-term debt conversion obligation represents the difference between the carrying value of the convertible debt and the principal amount due in cash upon conversion.
