2 In April 2015, Infinera announced its offer to acquire Transmode, a leader in metro packet-optical networking. Acquisition-related costs include legal and other professional fees and have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that these expenses are not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
3 In April 2015, Infinera entered into a foreign currency forward contract with a notional amount of SEK 831 million ($95.3 million) at an exchange rate of 8.7210 to hedge currency exposures associated with the cash portion of the offer to acquire Transmode. Changes in the fair value of this forward contract will impact Infinera's financial statements for the interim reporting periods prior to the close of the offer. As a result, these gains have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that these gains are not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
4 Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer's non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes, Infinera is required to amortize as a debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the conversion option that was recorded in equity as interest expense on its $150 million 1.75% convertible debt issuance in May 2013 over the term of the notes. These amounts have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that this non-cash expense is not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
