Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our “non-GAAP adjusted net income” excludes the following items from GAAP net (loss) income:

1. Impact of a new accounting standard for convertible debt: Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes certain non-cash interest expense resulting from the change in the method of accounting for our convertible notes. In addition, as required, we revised our previously reported financial statements to retrospectively apply this change in accounting to prior periods. We believe that excluding the non-cash portion of our interest expense allows management and investors an alternative view of our financial results “as if” our net income reflected only the cash portion of our interest expense.

2. Purchase accounting and product acquisition related adjustments: Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes certain items related to the acquisition of Cinryze and Vancocin. The excluded items include charges related to amortization and step up in the value of Cinryze inventory. Excluding these charges allows management and investors an alternative view of our financial results “as if” the acquired intangible asset had been developed internally rather than acquired and, therefore, provides a supplemental measure of performance in which the Company’s acquired intellectual property is treated in a comparable manner to its internally developed intellectual property.

3. Stock option expense - Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes the impact of our stock option expense. We believe that excluding the impact of expensing stock options better reflects the recurring economic characteristics of our business.

4. Other items - Non-GAAP net income exclude other unusual or non-recurring items that are evaluated on an individual basis. Our evaluation of whether to exclude an item for purposes of determining our non-GAAP financial measures considers both the

quantitative and qualitative aspects of the item, including, among other things (i) its size and nature, (ii) whether or not it relates to our ongoing business operations, and (iii) whether or not we expect it to occur as part of our normal business on a regular basis. For purposes of determining non-GAAP net income goodwill write off and gain on extinguishment of repurchased bonds are excluded.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our “non-GAAP adjusted net income” excludes the following items from GAAP net (loss) income attributed to ViroPharma:

1. Impact of FSP APB 14-1: Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes certain non-cash interest expense resulting from the change in the method of accounting for our convertible notes. In addition, as required, we revised our previously reported financial statements to retrospectively apply this change in accounting to prior periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our “non-GAAP adjusted net income” excludes the following items from GAAP net (loss) income attributed to ViroPharma:

1. Impact of FSP APB 14-1: Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes certain non-cash interest expense including portions related to our January 1, 2009 adoption of FSP APB 14-1, which changed the method of accounting for our convertible notes. In addition, as required, we revised our previously reported financial statements to retrospectively apply this change in accounting to prior periods. We believe that excluding the non-cash portion of our interest expense allows management and investors an alternative view of our financial results “as if” our net income reflected only the cash portion of our interest expense.

2. Purchase accounting and product acquisition related adjustments: Non-GAAP adjusted net income excludes certain items related to the acquisition of Cinryze and Vancocin.

For purposes of determining non-GAAP net income goodwill write off arising from our book value being lower than our market capitalization at March 31, 2009, and gain on extinguishment of repurchased bonds are excluded.
