The Q1 guidance adjusts for the impact of the following items and their income tax effects, as well as any additional discrete tax items or restructuring costs: approximately $2 million of the effect of acquisition accounting on the fair value of acquired deferred revenue; approximately $14 million of stock-based compensation expense; approximately $14 million of intangible asset amortization expense; and approximately $3 million of other charges, net (primarily acquisition-related and pension plan termination related expenses).
FY’15 non-GAAP guidance also excludes settlement losses related to the termination of our U.S. pension plan. While we expect to complete the termination process by September 30, 2015, the amount of the losses and timing of the charge is subject to the timing of regulatory approvals and the projected benefit obligations and assets in the plan measured as of the dates the settlements occur. We currently estimate the pre-tax settlement losses to be approximately $65 million.
