(1) The Company's non-GAAP net income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of 12%, 13%, and 14% for the three month periods ended March 31, 2013, December 31, 2012, and March 31, 2012, respectively. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated tax payable on the Company's projected 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 its operating results. The Company's effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net (loss) income for the three month periods ended March 31, 2013, December 31, 2012, and March 31, 2012 was approximately 66%, (NM) and 43%, respectively.
(2) In November, 2012, we incurred a restructuring charge of $0.9 million pursuant to a plan to rebalance our operations in an attempt to leverage synergies from our acquisitions. This plan resulted in a reduction of our personnel by 40 employees or approximately 6% of our workforce.
