During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company recorded total charges of $1,382,000, which included $987,000 of equity based compensation expense. The other $395,000 expense related to severance and acquisition related charges. During the first nine months of 2013, the Company recorded total charges of $1,140,000, which included a benefit of $69,000 related to equity compensation expense. The other charges of $1,209,000 were composed of $938,000 for separation related charges and legal costs of $271,000 associated with an intellectual property matter that was settled during 2013. The aforementioned charges, along with an associated adjustment to the Company’s provision for income taxes have been excluded in the Company’s non-GAAP measures because they are considered non-recurring in nature and are quantitatively and qualitatively different from the Company’s core operations during any particular period.
