Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We disclose non-GAAP financial measures of operating income, net income and
net income per ADS, each of which is adjusted to exclude share-based
compensation expense. We review non-GAAP financial measures to obtain an
additional understanding of our operating performance. We also believe it is
useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess our
operating performance without the effect of non-cash share-based compensation
expense, which have been and will continue to be significant recurring
expenses in our business. For a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP
financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures,
please see "Reconciliation To Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of
Comprehensive Income" included in this press release.
However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an
analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures
is that it does not include all items that impact our non-GAAP financial
measures during the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures
are not calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be
comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light
of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial
measures in isolation from or as an alternative to GAAP financial measures.
Management compensates for this limitation by providing specific information
regarding the GAAP amount excluded from the non-GAAP measure.
