Convertible notes, non-cash interest expense is calculated in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 470: Debt.

The number of Diluted Shares outstanding may vary due to, among other things, the vesting of restricted stock units, additional dilutive shares from the Company’s convertible senior subordinated notes, and the redemption or issuance of shares or convertible bonds or the sale of treasury shares. With the adoption of the new accounting standard, GAAP Diluted Shares Outstanding assumes settlement of principal and excess over par in common shares of the Company for the 1.625% Notes and only the excess over the nominal value in ordinary shares of the Company for the Securities at 0%, according to the terms of these securities. Diluted non-GAAP shares outstanding include shares not hedged by the Company issued concurrently with these notes. In periods when the average quarterly share price exceeds $30.70 for the 1.625% Notes and $74.34 for 0% notes, the dilutive impact of warrants issued concurrently with these notes is included in diluted GAAP and non-GAAP shares outstanding. Calculations are based on the Company’s share price at December 31, 2021.

** Special items may include: amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; the expensing of increases in the fair market value of inventories measured; purchased in-process research and development costs; restructuring, asset write-downs and other, net; goodwill impairment charges; gains and losses on prepayment of debt; non-cash interest expense; actuarial (gains) losses on pension plans and other retirement benefits; and some other special items as required. These special items are beyond our control and could change significantly from period to period. Accordingly, we are unable to reasonably estimate and separately present the individual impact or likely significance of these special items, nor are we able to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures. . The reconciliation that is not available would include a future-looking income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statement in accordance with GAAP. For this reason, we use a projected range of the aggregate amount of special items to calculate our outlook for projected non-GAAP operating expenses.

*** We believe these non-GAAP measures provide important supplemental information to investors. We use these measures, along with the GAAP measures, for internal management purposes and as a way to assess period-to-period comparisons. However, we do not, and you should not, rely solely on non-GAAP financial measures as measures of our performance. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing those aspects of our business which, when taken together with the results in accordance with GAAP and the reconciliations to the corresponding GAAP financial measures that we also provide in our releases, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare these financial measures with the non-GAAP financial measures of other companies, even if they have similar names.
