Information About Non-GAAP Measures

Xcerra supplements its GAAP financial results by providing non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of the Company. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter ended October 31, 2017 excludes the amortization of purchased intangible assets, restructuring charges, and other one-time adjustments. Management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful for internal comparison to historical operating results as well as to the operating results of its competitors, and believes that this information is useful to investors for the same purposes. A reconciliation between the Company’s GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the attached tables. Readers are reminded that non-GAAP information is merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures.
