(a) Earnings before interest, taxes and amortization of intangibles ("EBITA") is a
Non-GAAP measure. We use EBITA as an additional operating performance measure, which
excludes the non-cash amortization expense of acquired intangible assets. We believe that
EBITA is a useful measure to evaluate the performance of our businesses. Non-GAAP
financial measures should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for
financial information presented in compliance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures
reported by us may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other
