Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP measures that exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related costs and amortization of debt discount on Infinera's convertible senior notes. Infinera believes these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of its underlying financial performance and also its prospects for the future and are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for its planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), basic and diluted net income (loss) per share, gross margin or operating margin prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and are subject to limitations. For a description of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section titled, "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations." Infinera anticipates disclosing forward-looking non-GAAP information in its conference call to discuss its first quarter 2015 results, including an estimate of non-GAAP earnings for the second quarter of 2015 that excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related costs and amortization of debt discount on Infinera's convertible senior notes.

(2) In April 2015, Infinera announced its offer to acquire Transmode AB, a leader in metro packet-optical networking. Acquisition-related costs include legal and other professional fees and have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that these expenses are not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
   
(3) 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 a 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 1.75% convertible debt issuance in May 2013 over the term of the notes. These amounts have been adjusted in arriving at 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.
