Non-GAAP Information

Certain non-GAAP financial information is included in this press release. In the reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP results, Symmetricom excludes certain items related to non-cash equity-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, integration and restructuring charges, impairment of goodwill and other intangibles, gains and losses on asset sales, investments and repayment of convertible notes, non-cash interest expense charges, and other unusual or infrequent items. The income tax effect after these Non-GAAP adjustments is determined based upon the Company’s estimate of its annual Non-GAAP effective tax rate excluding these Non-GAAP adjustments. Symmetricom believes that excluding such items provides investors and management with a representation of the Company’s core operating performance and with information useful in assessing our prospects for the future and underlying trends in Symmetricom’s operating performance. Management uses such Non-GAAP information to evaluate financial results and to establish operational goals. Non-GAAP information should not be considered superior to or as a substitute for data prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the GAAP results is provided in the financial schedules portion of this press release.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities minus purchases of property, plant and equipment. We believe this metric provides useful information to our investors, analysts, and management about the level of cash generated by normal business operations, including the use of cash for the purchase of property, plant and equipment. Management also views it as a measure of cash available to pay debt and return cash to stockholders. Free cash flow is not a GAAP financial measure and should not be considered superior to or a substitute for operating cash flow or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP.
