Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On January 30, 2007, we disclosed unaudited financial information for the fourth quarter of 2006 and the year ended December 31, 2006, in the press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
We report our financial results in accordance with GAAP. We also provide investors with information on our free cash flow for our reporting periods, which is a non-GAAP financial measure calculated as the net cash provided by operating activities less our acquisition of property, equipment and patent licenses during the period. This non-GAAP financial measure is not in accordance with, nor is it a substitute for, the GAAP measure of cash flow from operating activities. We use free cash flow to evaluate and manage our operations. We provide this information to investors to allow for the performance of additional financial analysis and because it is consistent with the financial models and estimates published by analysts who follow us.
The information in this Current Report is being furnished and shall not be deemed filed for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information in this Current Report shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
