1 Non-GAAP Measures – GigPeak reports gross margin and net income on a Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and non-GAAP basis. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of the ongoing operations of GigPeak’s business and provide an additional metric for comparability between reporting periods and provide an additional baseline for analyzing trends in GigPeak’s operations because these financial measures provide a view of our operations that excludes items that management believes are not reflective of the operating performance, such as stock-based compensation and acquisition related costs. As a result, these non-GAAP measures are provided to supplement investors’ overall understanding of, and an enhanced level of transparency into, GigPeak’s financial performance. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of these GAAP to non-GAAP measurements for the three months and fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, can be found in the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Information” table attached to this press release. A reconciliation of these measurements of the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015, can be found in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 8, 2016.
