Billings

Billings reflect amounts in an accounting period invoiced to customers,
less any credits issued to or paid to customers, plus amounts due under
certain licensing-related contractual arrangements that may not be
subject to an invoice. Management evaluates the Company’s financial
performance in part based on billings due to the close alignment between
billings and cash receipts from licensing activity, and believes
billings is an important metric to provide to readers of our financial
results. Billings may vary materially from revenue recorded under U.S.
GAAP.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance
with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the Company’s
earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures adjusted for
either one-time or ongoing non-cash acquired intangibles amortization
charges, acquired in-process research and development, all forms of
stock-based compensation, interest income from significant financing
components under Topic 606, unrealized gains or losses on marketable
equity securities, restructuring and other related exit costs.
Management believes that the non-GAAP measures used in this release
provide investors with important perspectives into the Company’s ongoing
business performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the
Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to,
financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial
results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those
financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP
financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently
from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures
used by other companies. All financial data is presented on a GAAP basis
except where the Company indicates its presentation is on a non-GAAP
basis.

Set forth below are reconciliations of the Company’s reported GAAP to
