(1)The Company's non-GAAP net (loss) income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of (4)%, 29%, and 22% for the three month periods ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2012, respectively. The Company's non-GAAP net (loss) income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of (12)% and 19% for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated tax payable on the Company's projected tax returns as a percentage of estimated annual non-GAAP pre-tax net income (loss). The Company uses an estimated cash tax rate to adjust for the historical variation in the effective book tax rate associated with the valuation allowance adjustments, the utilization of research and development tax credits, and the utilization of loss carryforwards which currently have an overall effect of reducing taxes payable. The Company believes that the cash tax rate provides a more transparent view of its operating results. The Company's effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net (loss) income for the three month periods ended September 30, 2013, June 30, 2013, and September 30, 2012 was approximately 7%, (215)%, and 74%, respectively. The Company's effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net (loss) income for the nine month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 was approximately (67)% and 49%, respectively.

(2)In June, 2013, we incurred a restructuring charge of $1.8 million pursuant to a plan to rebalance our operations in an attempt to leverage synergies from our acquisitions and refine our business operations. This plan resulted in a reduction of our personnel by 66 employees, or approximately 10% of our workforce.
