Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On July 20, 2005, QUALCOMM Incorporated (the Company) issued a press release regarding the Companys financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended June 26, 2005. The full text of the Companys press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
The attached press release presents pro forma financial measurements which are used by management to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Companys operating results, and the Company believes that pro forma reporting represents relevant and useful information that is widely used by analysts, investors, and other interested parties in our industry.
The attached press release presents pro forma financial information excluding the QUALCOMM Strategic Initiatives (QSI) segment,to facilitate evaluation of its ongoing core operating businesses, including QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies (QCT), QUALCOMM Technology Licensing (QTL) and QUALCOMM Wireless and Internet (QWI). QSI results relate to strategic investments for which the Company has exit strategies of varying durations. The Companys management believes that the information excluding QSI presents a more representative view of the operating and liquidity performance of the Company because it excludes the effect of fluctuations in value of investments that are unrelated to the Companys operational performance.
The attached press release presents pro forma financial results as though the new method of recording royalties, based solely on reports from licensees, had been in effect for prior periods to facilitate evaluation by management, investors and analysts of the results for these periods on a comparable basis to the Companys current results, current guidance and future periods. The Company believes that this non-GAAP presentation is useful in evaluating performance on a consistent and comparable basis.
The attached press release presents pro forma results for fiscal 2005 excluding one-time tax benefits related to fiscal 2004 to provide management, as well as investors, a clearer understanding of the Companys ongoing tax rate and after tax earnings. The Company believes that this non-GAAP presentation is useful in evaluating performance on a consistent and comparable basis.
The attached press release presents pro forma cash flow information including marketable securities. The Companys management uses this non-GAAP presentation to analyze increases and decreases in certain of its liquid assets, comprised of cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities. Management views certain marketable securities as liquid assets available to fund operations, which result from cash management strategies designed to increase yields. However, these instruments do not meet the definition of cash equivalents in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 95, Statement of Cash Flows and must be excluded from the GAAP statements of cash flows. Since the GAAP statements of cash flows reconcile the Companys beginning and ending cash and cash equivalents balances, the purchases and sales of marketable securities are presented as inflows and outflows. For internal analysis of the Companys cash position, management does not view these transactions as inflows and outflows from the business, but as cash management transactions. If required, such investments could be settled relatively quickly as additional cash resources are needed. The Company believes that this non-GAAP presentation is a helpful measure of the Companys liquidity.
The non-GAAP pro forma financial information presented herein should be considered in addition, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, pro forma is not a term defined by GAAP and, as a result, the Companys measure of pro forma results might be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies. Reconciliations between total QUALCOMM results and QUALCOMM pro forma results and total QUALCOMM cash flow and QUALCOMM pro forma changes in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities are presented in the press release.
