Results of Operations and Financial Condition, Financial Statements and Exhibits


Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 24, 2014, VeriSign, Inc. ("Verisign" or the "Company") announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2014, and certain other information, including information on the fourth quarter domain name renewal rate. A copy of this press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. The information in this Item 2.02 of Form 8-K and the Exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
Verisign provides quarterly and annual financial statements that are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Along with this information, we typically disclose and discuss certain non-GAAP financial information in our quarterly earnings releases, on investor conference calls and during investor conferences and related events. This non-GAAP financial information does not include the following types of financial measures that are included in GAAP: discontinued operations, stock-based compensation, amortization of other intangible assets, impairments of goodwill and other intangible assets, restructuring charges, contingent interest payments to holders of our Subordinated Convertible Debentures, unrealized gain/loss on contingent interest derivative on Subordinated Convertible Debentures, and non-cash interest expense. Non-GAAP financial information is also adjusted for a 28 percent tax rate, which differs from the GAAP tax rate.
Following the offering of our 4.625% senior notes due 2023 (the "Notes"), we disclose our Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013 and the four quarters ended March 31, 2014. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the Notes. Adjusted EBITDA refers to net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock -based compensation, unrealized loss (gain) on contingent interest derivative on the Subordinated Convertible Debentures and unrealized loss (gain) on hedging agreements. All non-GAAP figures for each period presented in Exhibit 99.1 have been conformed to exclude the foregoing items under GAAP.
Management believes that this non-GAAP financial data supplements the GAAP financial data by providing investors with additional information that allows them to have a clearer picture of the Company's operations. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the non-GAAP information enhances the investors' overall understanding of our financial performance and the comparability of the Company's operating results from period to period. In the press release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1, we have provided a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial information that we provide each quarter with the comparable financial information reported in accordance with GAAP for the given period as well as a reconciliation of consolidated Adjusted EBITDA to consolidated net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
