SECTION 2 FINANCIAL INFORMATION
On April 20, 2010, Gilead Sciences, Inc., a Delaware corporation (Gilead), issued a press release announcing its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010. A copy of the press release is filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
Gilead has presented certain financial information in accordance with GAAP and also on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2010 and 2009. Management believes this non-GAAP information is useful for investors, taken in conjunction with Gileads GAAP financial statements, because management uses such information internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of Gileads operating results as reported under U.S. GAAP. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial information is provided in the table on page 6 of the press release filed as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
The information in this Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or otherwise subject to the liabilities under that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
SECTION 9 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.
Date: April 20, 2010
