We believe the inclusion of the above non-GAAP measure will be useful to investors because it will enhance the comparability of our current period results to prior periods' results without comparable charges.  We also believe inclusion of this measure will enhance comparability of our results to results of our competitors and to the analysts’ forecasts because the analysts typically forecast excluding the effect of share-based payment charge and above one time charges, the non-GAAP measure.  In addition, our management uses this measure to evaluate our operating performance and compare our results to our competitors.  Management also uses this measure as a metric to measure performance under our executive compensation program.        
      
The Company notes that non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.  Instead, they are based on subjective determinations by management designed to supplement our GAAP financial measures.  They are subject to a number of important limitations and should be considered only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Among the limitations on the use of the non-GAAP measure are the following:      
-   The exclusion of non-GAAP items can have a significant impact on reported GAAP net income and diluted net income per share.      
-   Other companies may calculate non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share differently than MICROS does, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.
