Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Lumentum provides investors with gross margin, operating margin, net income, net income (loss) per share and segment revenue on a non-GAAP basis. Lumentum believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into the Company's on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to help them evaluate the results of the Company's on-going operations and enable more meaningful period to period comparisons. Specifically, the Company believes that providing this information allows investors to better understand the Company’s financial performance and, importantly, to evaluate the efficacy of the methodology and information used by management to evaluate and measure such operating performance. However, these measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, many of the adjustments to our GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future.

Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA exclude (i) workforce related charges such as severance, retention bonuses and employee relocation costs related to formal restructuring plans, (ii) costs for facilities not required for ongoing operations, and costs related to the relocation of certain equipment from these facilities and/or contract manufacturer facilities, (iii) stock-based compensation, (iv) amortization of intangibles, and (v) other non-recurring charges comprising mainly of one-time acquisition, integration, litigation and other costs and contingencies unrelated to current and future operations including post-separation activities such as small site consolidations, reorganizations, insourcing or outsourcing of activities, severance related costs and transition related costs for the separation from Viavi. Management does not believe that these items are reflective of the Company's underlying operating performance. The presentation of these and other similar items in Lumentum's non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual.

A quantitative reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial data with respect to historical periods is included in the supplemental financial table attached to this press release. The Company has not reconciled its projections of non-GAAP earnings per share. As items that impact net loss are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, Lumentum has determined that a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts.

This adjustment amount is added for the computation of diluted net income per share on non-GAAP basis as we had a net income on non-GAAP basis for the six months ended December 26, 2015.
