    42,19441,825The Company makes reference in this release to "non-GAAP operating income" and "non-GAAP net income" which excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets and the impact of costs associated with legal proceedings, which are unpredictable and can vary significantly from period to period, including costs associated with the ENZO Life Sciences, Inc. and Irori Technologies, Inc. complaints discussed in the Legal Proceedings section of our previously filed 10-K and 10-Qs and certain other recurring and non-recurring expenses. The Company believes that excluding these items and their related tax effects from its financial results reflects operating results that are more indicative of the Company's ongoing operating performance while improving comparability to prior periods, and, as such may provide investors with an enhanced understanding of the Company's past financial performance and prospects for the future. In addition, the Company's management uses such non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate and assess its core operations and to make ongoing operating decisions. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income from operations, net income, net income per share or expense information prepared in accordance with GAAP
