NON-GAAP FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE MEASURES  In addition to financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, this press release also contains adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share measures that we believe provide investors and management with supplemental information relating to operating performance and trends that facilitate comparisons between periods and with respect to projected information. Adjusted net income excludes upfront collaboration payments, amortization of acquired intangible assets and other charges, deal related charges, restructuring charges, stock-based compensation expense, changes in contingent consideration, arbitration award, development milestone payment, non-cash interest and net income tax adjustments.

These adjusted measures are non-GAAP and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We typically exclude certain GAAP items that management does not believe affect our basic operations and that do not meet the GAAP definition of unusual or non-recurring items. Other companies may define these measures in different ways.
