Note: Non-GAAP figures are calculated by removing or adjusting non-recurring items and other adjustments from GAAP (IFRS based) figures following a certain set of rules. The Group believes non-GAAP measures provide useful information in understanding and evaluating the Group’s constant business results, and therefore results are provided in non-GAAP base. This adjustment and exclusion include the amortization of intangible assets recognized from acquisitions, other PPA (purchase price allocation) adjustments and costs relating to acquisitions, stock-based compensation, as well as other non-recurring expenses and income the Group believes to be applicable.

2. Background to the difference

Although Non-GAAP sales revenue and Non-GAAP revenue from semiconductors of the consolidated results for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were within the forecast presented on May 14, 2019, Non-GAAP Gross Margin exceeded the previous forecast by 0.8pt and Non-GAAP Operating Margin exceeded the previous forecast by 2.7pts. The reason Non-GAAP Operating Margin largely exceeded previous forecast was mainly due to the effects of controlling costs such as R&D cost and SG&A costs.
