share in accordance with GAAP, and excludes the impact of the deemed
dividends for the basic calculation.
In addition to Mindray's consolidated financial results under GAAP, the Company also provides non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating profit, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share on a basic and fully diluted basis. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing Mindray's financial performance and liquidity and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP operating measures are useful for understanding and assessing Mindray's underlying business performance and operating trends and the Company expects to report operating profit and net income on a non-GAAP basis using a consistent method on a quarterly basis going forward.
The Company computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. The Company notes that these measures may not be calculated on the same basis of similar measures used by other companies. Readers are cautioned not to view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies, and should refer to the reconciliation of GAAP results with non-GAAP results for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2007 and 2008, respectively, in the attached financial statements.
