Management Qualitative Comments
"Fiscal 2015 was a significant year for InvenSense," said Behrooz Abdi, president and CEO. "We achieved the highest revenue in company history, driven by strong market share gains and several high-volume customer wins. We also brought to market a record number of new products across our motion sensor, software and microphone portfolio intended to open up incremental revenue growth opportunities over the coming quarters. Our success in mobile in fiscal 2015 laid important groundwork for our continued achievement in the coming year, while the advancement of our platform strategy provides us with multiple entry points into verticals beyond mobile where our technology can provide significant value in the years to come."

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
As discussed above, in addition to the company's condensed consolidated financial statements, which are presented according to GAAP, the company provides certain non-GAAP financial information that excludes, stock-based compensation expense and related payroll taxes, certain legal expenses, business acquisition costs, amortization of fair value write-up of acquired inventory, amortization of acquisition intangibles, accreting interest expense on convertible notes, other adjustments, and the income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustment. The company uses these non-GAAP measures in its own financial and operational decision-making processes. Further, the company believes that these non-GAAP measures offer an important analytical tool to help investors understand the company's core operating results and trends and facilitate comparability with the operating results of other companies that provide similar non-GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures have certain limitations as analytical tools and are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial information. For example, stock-based compensation is an important component of the company's compensation mix and will continue to result in significant expenses in the company's GAAP results for the foreseeable future, but it is not reflected in our non-GAAP measures. Also, other companies, including companies in the company's industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
