associated with making this technology available to existing patients

and the cost is not indicative of future expenses associated with the

technology. The business optimization costs do not reflect expected

future operating expenses and Boston Scientific management excludes

them in assessing current operating performance. The charitable

contribution does not reflect expected future operating expenses.

Accordingly, management excluded these charges for purposes of

calculating these non-GAAP measures to facilitate an evaluation of the

Company's current operating performance and a comparison to the

Company's past operating performance.

decisions and assessing performance. Accordingly, management excluded

these charges for purposes of calculating these non-GAAP measures to
