GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation
To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Mellanox uses non-GAAP measures of net income which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude share-based compensation expenses. The company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors, as these non-GAAP results exclude expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. Management believes it is useful to exclude share-based compensation expenses because it enhances investors' ability to review our business from the same perspective as management, which believes that share-based compensation expenses are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the company's business operations. Further, management uses non-GAAP information as certain non-cash charges such as share-based compensation do not reflect the cash operating results of the business. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures may be different than the non-GAAP measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP condensed consolidated statements of operations is also presented in the financial statements portion of this release and is posted under the “Investors” section at our web site.

1 Under GAAP, shares used in computing income per share attributable to ordinary shareholders are adjusted for the amount of time they are outstanding during the period. Because the shares issued pursuant to our initial public offering were issued, and all of our then outstanding preferred shares converted into ordinary shares on February 13, 2007, those shares were adjusted for the amount of time they were outstanding during the period as part of the GAAP SHARES BASIC calculation. The GAAP SHARES BASIC have been adjusted to a non-GAAP measure as if those ordinary shares were outstanding during the entire period to provide a comparable share number in future quarters.


2 This adjustment adds back the GAAP effect of additional ordinary shares that would have been outstanding if the dilutive potential common shares from stock options had been issued under the Treasure method.
