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. 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.

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market?

What are the key differences between wh...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
SYS-CON Events announced today that Bsquare has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's @ThingsExpo, which will take place on November 1–3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
