About Non-GAAP financial measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G and Item 10(e) of Regulation S-K. Such non-GAAP financial measures are measures of our historical or future performance, financial position or cash flows that are adjusted to exclude or include amounts that are excluded or included, as the case may be, from the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS.

The table on page 9 provides our Adjusted Net Income for the period, which is a non-GAAP measure that excludes the impact of accelerated amortization in respect of stock options that vest in a graded manner.

This Non-GAAP financial measure is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated in accordance with IFRS, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition to this non-GAAP measure, the financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS and the reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure with the most directly comparable IFRS financial measure should be carefully evaluated.

The Company believes that the presentation of this Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income, when shown in conjunction with the corresponding IFRS measure, provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to its Net Income for the period. The Company considers a stock option award with the graded vesting schedule to be in substance a single award not multiple stock option awards. Further, the Company considers the services of the employee in each year covered by the stock option award to be equally valuable and accordingly believes that the straight line amortization reflects the economic substance of the stock awards. However, the Company records the related stock compensation expenses on an accelerated amortization basis for IFRS reporting. Therefore, we believe that making available an adjusted net income number that excludes the impact of accelerated amortization from net income provides useful supplemental information to both management and investors about our financial and business trends.

For our internal budgeting process, our management also uses financial statements that exclude the impact of accelerated amortization relating to stock options that vest in a graded manner. The management of the Company also uses Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income, in addition to the corresponding IFRS measure, in reviewing our financial results.

A material limitation associated with the use of Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income as compared to the IFRS measure of net income is that it does not include costs which are recurring in nature and may not be comparable with the calculation of Net Income for other companies in our industry. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of the effects of this non-GAAP measure, by presenting the corresponding IFRS financial measure and by providing a reconciliation to the corresponding IFRS measure.

Our results for the year ended March 31, 2010, computed under Indian GAAP and IFRS, along with our individual business segment reports, are available in the Investors section of our website at www.wipro.com.
