Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Income included herein. Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to include recognition of deferred revenues of acquired companies and to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets and deferred income tax, as well as certain business combination accounting entries.
The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions. We believe that these non-GAAP measures help investors to understand our current and future operating performance, especially as our two most recent acquisitions have resulted in amortization and non-cash items that have had a material impact on our GAAP results. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
