____________________________

(1) Stock-based compensation expense is calculated in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation effective January 1, 2006. The following table summarizes the effects of stock-based compensation related to employees and non-employees (in thousands):

Total stock-based compensation expense $10,983  $10,296  $10,877 

 _____________________________

* Stock-based compensation expense deferred to inventory and deferred inventory costs in prior periods and recognized in the current period.

(2) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets consists of amortization of developed technology, trade names, and customer relationships acquired in connection with the Transmode acquisition. U.S. GAAP accounting requires that acquired intangible assets are recorded at fair value and amortized over their useful lives. As this amortization is non-cash, Infinera has excluded it from its non-GAAP operating expenses, gross margin and net income measures. Management believes the amortization of acquired intangible assets is not indicative of ongoing operating performance and its exclusion provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance. 

(3) Acquisition-related costs associated with the Transmode acquisition include legal, financial, employee retention costs and other professional fees incurred in connection with the transaction, including squeeze-out proceedings. These amounts have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that these expenses are non-recurring, not indicative of ongoing operating performance and their exclusion provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.

(4) Restructuring and other costs (credits) are related to Infinera's plan to restructure its worldwide operations, which was implemented during the fourth quarter of 2017. Management has excluded the impact of these charges in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results as they are non-recurring in nature and its exclusion provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.

(5) Intangible asset impairment is associated with previously acquired intangibles, which Infinera has determined that the carrying value will not be recoverable. Management has excluded the impact of this charge in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because it is non-recurring, and management believes that these expenses are not indicative of ongoing operating performance.

(6) Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer's non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes, Infinera is required to amortize as debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the conversion option that was recorded in equity as interest expense on its $150 million in aggregate principal amount of 1.75% convertible debt issuance in May 2013 over the term of the notes. Interest expense has been excluded from Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that this non-cash expense is not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.

(7) The impairment of cost-method investment has been excluded in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because it is non-recurring, and management believes that this non-cash expense is not indicative of ongoing operating performance.

(8) The difference between the GAAP and non-GAAP tax is due to the net tax effects of the purchase accounting adjustments, acquisition-related costs and amortization of acquired intangible assets.
