On February 3, 2010, Aviat Networks, Inc. (Aviat Networks) (formerly Harris Stratex Networks, Inc.) issued a press release announcing its results of operations and financial condition as of and for its second quarter of fiscal year 2010, which ended January 1, 2010 and guidance regarding expected revenue for its third quarter of fiscal 2010. The full text of the press release and related financial tables is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
Use of Non-GAAP Measures and Comparative Financial Information
The press release and related financial tables include a discussion of non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income or loss and net income or loss (or earnings or loss) per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2010. A non-GAAP financial measure is generally defined as a numerical measure of a companys historical or future performance that excludes or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments, so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Each of such non-GAAP amounts was determined by excluding certain items including costs of product sales and services, amortization of purchased technology, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges and provision for income taxes. Aviat Networks has included in its press release a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in the press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
Aviat Networks reports information in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management of Aviat Networks monitors gross margin, operating income or loss, net income or loss, and net income or loss per share on a non-GAAP basis for planning and forecasting results in future periods, and may use these measures for some management compensation purposes. As such, historical non-GAAP combined information has been included in this press release for comparative purposes. As a result, management is presenting these non-GAAP measures in addition to results reported in accordance with GAAP to better communicate underlying operational and financial performance in each period. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any given period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP measures enhance the ability of an investor to analyze trends in Aviat Networks business and to better understand our performance.
Aviat Networks management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Aviat Networks presents such non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate the Companys financial performance.
