Disclosure Statements and Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
Management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various performance measures. In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with GAAP, we also consider adjusted net revenue, gross profit, operating income and net income, which we refer to as “non-GAAP net revenue,” “non-GAAP gross profit,” “non-GAAP operating income” and “non-GAAP net income.” In calculating non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income, management adjusts for certain items to facilitate its review of the comparability of the company’s operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such items are not, in management’s review, related to the company’s ongoing operating performance.
Non-GAAP net revenue primarily includes prior period deferred revenue that was originally scheduled to be recognized in the second quarter of 2010 from the balance sheet but became delayed until future periods because of the remediation actions taken related to the antivirus signature file update we released on April 21, 2010 that impacted some of our customers’ computers (“DAT 5958”).
Non-GAAP gross profit excludes expenses related to our DAT 5958 remediation actions, amortization of purchased technology, stock-based compensation expense and certain other items. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP operating income exclude expenses related to our DAT 5958 remediation actions, amortization of purchased technology and intangibles, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related costs, restructuring charges, provision for income taxes and certain other items.
Management used a 24 percent non-GAAP effective tax rate to calculate non-GAAP net income in 2010 and 2009. Management believes the 24 percent effective tax rate is reflective of a long-term normalized tax rate under the global McAfee operating structure.
We present non-GAAP net revenue because we believe it provides supplemental information that shows the financial impact of the remediation actions taken related to DAT 5958. We present non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because we consider each to be an important supplemental measure of our performance. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to make operational and investment decisions, to evaluate the company’s performance and to forecast and to determine compensation. Further, management utilizes these performance measures for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocation of resources. In addition, when evaluating potential acquisitions, management adjusts for the items described above in its evaluation of target performance.
We further believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in providing greater transparency to the information used by management in its operational decision making. We believe that calculating non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income also facilitates a comparison of McAfee’s underlying operating performance with that of other companies in our industry, which may from time to time use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. However, non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP net revenue, GAAP gross profit, GAAP operating income and GAAP net income or any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. In the future, we expect to continue to incur expenses similar to certain of the non-GAAP adjustments described above and exclusion of these items in the presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all of these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Investors and potential investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as analytical tools. Some of the limitations in relying on non-GAAP net income are:

  • Amortization of purchased technology and intangibles, though not directly affecting our current cash position, represents the loss in value as the technology in our industry evolves, is advanced or is replaced over time. The expense associated with this loss in value is not included in the non-GAAP net income presentation and therefore does not reflect the full economic effect of the ongoing cost of maintaining our current technological position in our competitive industry, which is addressed through our research and development program.
  • The company regularly engages in acquisition and integration activities as part of its ongoing business. Therefore, we expect to continue to experience acquisition and retention bonuses, direct acquisition costs and integration costs related to acquisition activity in future periods.
  • The company’s income tax expense will ultimately be based on its GAAP taxable income and actual tax rates in effect, which may differ significantly from the 24 percent rate assumed in our non-GAAP financial measures for 2010 and 2009
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP net income differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative tool

In addition, many of the adjustments to our GAAP financial statements result in the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in the company’s financial results for the foreseeable future. The company compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. The company further compensates for the limitations of our use of non-GAAP financial measures by presenting comparable GAAP measures more prominently. The company evaluates the non-GAAP financial measures together with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with our GAAP net revenue, gross profit, operating income and net income. For more information, see the consolidated statements of income and the “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” contained in this press release.
Forward-Looking Statements:
This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward looking statements include statements regarding the preliminary results for the quarter ended June 30, 2010; guidance on expected results for the third quarter of 2010; and tax rates for 2010. Forward looking statements also include statements about the demand for and value of McAfee’s security solutions and McAfee’s financial foundation, business strategy, business model, market positioning, relationships, opportunities, and continued growth. Actual results could vary, perhaps materially, and the expected results may not occur. In particular, actual results are subject to other risks, including that the negative impact of foreign currency fluctuations may exceed McAfee’s estimate; the financial impact and reputational harm associated with McAfee’s release in the second quarter of an antivirus signature file update that impacted some of its customers’ computers may have some residual impact that exceeds McAfee’s estimate.
McAfee may not achieve its planned revenue realization rates or sales targets, succeed in its efforts to grow its business or combat effectively the security threats of the future, build upon its technology leadership, leverage its relationships and opportunities to the degree expected, capture market share, notwithstanding related commitment or related investment, or successfully repurchase stock under its stock repurchase program. McAfee may not benefit from its acquisitions, strategic alliances, partnerships or stock repurchase program as anticipated; customers may not respond as favorably as anticipated to the company’s product or technical support offerings; the company’s product and service offerings may not continue to interoperate effectively with operating systems causing delayed or lost sales or increased expenses; the company may experience delays in product development or the release of previously announced products; the company may experience delayed or lost sales and revenue as a result of outages in integrated systems on which it is highly dependent; the company may not satisfactorily anticipate or meet its customers’ needs or expectations; or the industry shift to security suites may not be adopted to the extent anticipated. Actual results are also subject to a number of other factors, including customer and distributor demand fluctuations, currency fluctuations, and macro and other economic conditions both in the United States and internationally, including the adverse global economic conditions. The company may experience further declines in the fair value of its investment securities or realize losses relating to other than temporary declines in its investment securities given adverse global economic conditions. The forward-looking statements contained in this release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in McAfee’s filings with the SEC including its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2010. McAfee does not undertake to update any forward looking statements.
