Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes a non-GAAP presentation of targeted earnings per
share for fiscal year 2016, that is adjusted to exclude certain recurring and
non-recurring costs, expenses and gains.We believe that the presentation of
non-GAAP earnings per share provides important supplemental information
regarding non-cash expenses and significant recurring and non-recurring items
that we believe are important to understanding financial and business trends
relating to our financial condition and results of operations.Non-GAAP
earnings per share is among the primary indicators used by management as a
basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our
Board of Directors to determine whether our operating performance has met
specified targets and thresholds.Management uses non-GAAP earnings per share
because it believes the exclusion of the items described below, for which the
amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending on the Company's
activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company's
operating performance from period to period.We have chosen to provide this
information to investors so that they can analyze our operating results in the
same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of
our business and the valuation of our Company.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measure

We compute non-GAAP earnings per share by adjusting GAAP earnings per share to
remove the impact of recurring amortization of acquisition-related intangibles
and stock-based compensation expense, as well as restructuring-related and
non-recurring charges and gains and the tax effect of these adjustments.Such
non-recurring charges and gains have included and may include
acquisition-related transaction expenses and the costs to integrate such
acquisitions into our business, changes in the fair value of contingent
consideration and litigation settlement charges and credits, corporate
headquarters relocation expenses, and imputed interest expense and
depreciation, net of accrued sublease income and capitalized interest related
to the sale of our corporate headquarters facility and related land.

Certain variables used in calculating non-GAAP earnings per share cannot be
accurately estimated on a forward-looking basis. Because these items will not
be known to us until a future period, we are unable to provide information
about the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.The impact of these
excluded items will cause the non-GAAP financial measure to differ materially
from the comparable GAAP financial measure.This non-GAAP financial measure
has certain shortcomings, including but not limited to the risk and
uncertainties outlined in the Safe Harbor for Forward Looking Statements
section of this press release.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Information to Investors

The non-GAAP measure presented herein is not in accordance with or an
alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP
measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other
companies.The presentation of this additional information should not be
considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, earnings
per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.Non-GAAP financial measures have
limitations as they do not reflect certain items that may have a material
impact upon our reported financial results.We expect to continue to incur
expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and
exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP earnings per share should not be
construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent, or
