(1)  Included a $1.3 million foreign currency exchange loss related to euros acquired in for the A2iA acquisition during the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018. 
(2)  The Company’s non-GAAP net income per share is calculated using the cash tax rate of 3%. The estimated cash tax rate is the estimated tax payable on the Company’s tax returns as a percentage of estimated annual non-GAAP pre-tax net income. The Company uses an estimated cash tax rate to adjust for the historical variation in the effective book tax rate associated with the reversal of valuation allowances, 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 the Company’s operating results. The Company’s effective tax rate used for the purposes of calculating GAAP net loss for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2018 was 34% and negative 31%, respectively.
