Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP net income consists of net income excluding stock-based compensation expense as well as charges related to acquisitions and other charges and gains that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to the company’s core operating performance. Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by adjusted GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income per share, the calculation of GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the benefits of compensation costs attributable to future services and not yet recognized in the financial statements that are treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method and also includes the antidilutive effects of warrants, common stock options and restricted stock.

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s financial condition and results of operations. For further information regarding why Marvell believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to the company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the SEC. The Form 8-K is available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov as well as on the Marvell website in the Investors Relations section at www.marvell.com.
