About Non-GAAP Financial Results
The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is intended to be considered together with the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on non-GAAP financial measures, please see the reconciliations of such measures in the tables of this release. Management uses non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Management believes that non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding Intersil's performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of recurring core business operating results. During the quarter ended July 1, 2011, we revised current quarter and historical presentation of non-GAAP financial information to exclude equity-based compensation in addition to previously excluded intangible amortization, acquisition charges, certain tax adjustments and one-time costs. Management believes this change aligns our non-GAAP presentation with that of our closest peers and increases comparability of our results with published earnings estimates widely available on the Internet.

In addition, any statements that refer to projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
