If calculated based on these prior measures, the Company’s fiscal first quarter results would have included Non-GAAP net revenue of $272.6 million (based on GAAP net revenue of $311.6 million adjusted for the change in deferred net revenue of ($39.0) million) and Non-GAAP net loss of $28.9 million, or $0.34 per diluted share (based on the Company’s new presentation of Non-GAAP net loss of $17.6 million, adjusted for the net effect from deferral of net revenue and related cost of goods sold of ($11.3) million).
