This release includes non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share data and other non-GAAP line items from the Consolidated Statements of Operations, including operating expenses, other income and expenses, income before income taxes, provision for income taxes and net income. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Juniper Networks further believes that where the adjustments used in calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share are based on specific, identified charges that impact different line items in the statements of operations (including cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative expense), that it is useful to investors to know how these specific line items in the statements of operations are affected by these adjustments. For its internal budgets, Juniper Networks’ management uses financial statements that do not include amortization of purchased intangible assets; in-process research and development; restructuring, impairment and related charges; integration costs; patent cross licensing expense; gain (loss) on investments; and the income tax effects of the foregoing, as applicable. Juniper Networks’ management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP measures, in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, in determining objectives for compensation programs or reviewing the financial results of Juniper Networks.
