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.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Intersil Corporation press releases and other related comments may contain forward-looking statements as defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, in connection with the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

In addition, any statements that refer to projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, our actual results could differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements as a result of various risk factors. Intersil does not adopt and is not responsible for any forward-looking statements and projections made by others in this press release.
