Our non-GAAP results are calculated by adjusting GAAP results for the impact of certain items including (i) non-cash amortization of intangibles, (ii) non-cash share-based compensation expenses, (iii) non-operating reorganization costs, (iv) the impact to revenue of fair value adjustments to deferred revenue due to acquisitions and (v) other acquisition related costs. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in the financial statements accompanying this press release.
Cash: Cash used in operations was $4.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, and cash and cash equivalents at November 30, 2011 were $15.0 million.
