Operating results and gains and losses on the sale of discontinued
operations. From time to time, we sell or otherwise dispose of
selected operations as we adjust our portfolio of businesses to meet our
strategic goals. In accordance with GAAP, we segregate the operating
results of discontinued operations as well as gains and losses on the
sale of these discontinued operations from continuing operations on our
GAAP statements of operations but continue to include them in GAAP net
income or loss and net income or loss per share. We exclude these
amounts from our non-GAAP financial measures.

These tables include adjustments that we can reasonably predict. Events that could cause the reconciliation to change include acquisitions and divestitures of businesses, goodwill and other asset impairments, and sales of available-for-sale debt securities and other investments.
