- Includes a
$1.3 millionforeign currency exchange remeasurement loss related to euros purchased for the A2iA acquisition during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018.
- Comprised of costs associated with the transition of the Company’s executive officers. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude these transition costs as we believe that such expense is inconsistent with the normally recurring operations of our Company and the inclusion of these costs makes it difficult to make period-to-period comparisons of our operating performance.
- The Company’s non-GAAP net income is calculated using the cash tax rate of 3% in each of fiscal years 2019 and 2018. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated tax payable on the Company’s tax returns as a percentage of estimated annual non-GAAP pre-tax net income. The Company uses an estimated cash tax rate to adjust for the historical variation in the effective book tax rate associated with the reversal of valuation allowances, the utilization of research and development tax credits, and the utilization of loss carryforwards which currently have an overall effect of reducing taxes payable. The Company believes that the cash tax rate provides a more transparent view of the Company’s operating results. The Company’s effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net loss for the three months ended
June 30, 2019and 2018 was 96% and 34%, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net loss for the nine months ended June 30, 2019and 2018 was 55% and negative 31%, respectively.
