Notes: The non-GAAP net income attributable to Biogen Idec Inc. and diluted EPS presented are defined as reported, or GAAP, values excluding (1) certain purchase accounting and merger-related adjustments, (2) stock option expense and the cumulative effect of an accounting change relating to the initial adoption of a new accounting standard for share-based payments, (3) other select items and (4) their related tax effects. Free cash flow is defined as net cash flows provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment, as disclosed within our Form 10-K. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to establish financial goals and to gain an understanding of the comparative financial performance of the Company from year to year and quarter to quarter. Accordingly, we believe investors' understanding of the Company's financial performance is enhanced as a result of our disclosing these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as a substitute for comparable reported, or GAAP financial measures. Numbers may not foot due to rounding. Additional reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures can be found at the Investors section of www.biogenidec.com
