(1) Adjusted net sales is a non-GAAP financial measure that includes total QIAGEN sales as well as contributions from Ingenuity (acquired April 29, 2013), Due to purchase accounting rules, reported net sales are reduced by fair value adjustments to deferred revenue related to sales contracts executed prior to the acquisitions.

(2) Adjusted results are non-GAAP financial measures that QIAGEN believes should be considered in addition to the reported results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, but should not be considered a substitute. QIAGEN believes certain items - such as those listed above - should be excluded from adjusted results when they are outside the ongoing core operations, vary significantly from period to period, or affect the comparability of results with its competitors and its own prior periods. Includes non-GAAP sales related to the bioinformatics acquisitions.
