NOTES
(Unaudited)
Property, Plant, and EquipmentWe periodically assess the estimated useful lives of our property, plant, and equipment. Based on our assessment of planned technology node transitions, capital spending, and re-use rates, we revised the estimated useful lives of the existing equipment in our NAND wafer fabrication facilities and our research and development facilities from five years to seven years as of the beginning of the first quarter of fiscal 2020. This revision reduced our aggregate depreciation expense by approximately $510 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020, of which approximately $150 million remained capitalized in inventory as of the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusting for the effect of the reduced amount of depreciation expense remaining in inventory, the revision in estimated useful lives benefited both operating income and net income by approximately $160 million and diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.14 for the third quarter of fiscal 2020, and benefited both operating income and net income by approximately $360 million and diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.32 for the first nine months of fiscal 2020.Adoption of Lease Accounting StandardIn the first quarter of fiscal 2020, we adopted ASU 2016-02 – Leases (as amended, “ASC 842”), which amends a number of aspects of lease accounting, including requiring lessees to recognize operating leases with a term greater than one year on their balance sheet as a right-of-use asset and corresponding lease liability, measured at the present value of lease payments. In adoption, we applied the modified retrospective method and elected to not recast prior periods. As a result, we recognized $567 million for operating lease liabilities and right-of-use assets and reclassified an additional $66 million of other balances to right-of-use assets to conform to the new presentation requirements of ASC 842.Debt ActivityOn April 24, 2020, we issued $1.25 billion aggregate principal amount of our 2.497% senior notes due 2023 in a public offering.On March 13, 2020, we drew the $2.50 billion available under our revolving credit facility and on April 24, 2020, we repaid the $2.50 billion outstanding principal amount under our revolving credit facility. As of May 28, 2020, $2.50 billion was available to us under the revolving credit facility.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES
(In millions, except per share amounts)
RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP MEASURES, Continued

The tables above reconcile GAAP to non-GAAP measures of gross margin, operating expenses, operating income, net income attributable to Micron, diluted shares, diluted earnings per share, adjusted free cash flow, and net cash. The non-GAAP adjustments above may or may not be infrequent or nonrecurring in nature, but are a result of periodic or non-core operating activities. We believe this non-GAAP information is helpful in understanding trends and in analyzing our operating results and earnings. We are providing this information to investors to assist in performing analysis of our operating results. When evaluating performance and making decisions on how to allocate our resources, management uses this non-GAAP information and believes investors should have access to similar data when making their investment decisions. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures increase transparency by providing investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enabling enhanced comparison of our operating results between periods and with peer companies. The presentation of these adjusted amounts varies from numbers presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to amounts reported by other companies. Our management excludes the following items in analyzing our operating results and understanding trends in our earnings:Stock-based compensation;Flow-through of business acquisition-related inventory adjustments;Acquisition-related costs;Start-up and preproduction costs;Employee severance;Restructure and asset impairments;Amortization of debt discount and other costs, including the accretion of non-cash interest expense associated with our convertible debt and MMJ creditor debt;Gains and losses from debt repurchases and conversions;Gains and losses from business acquisition activities;Impact of U.S. income tax reform for the one-time transition tax, release of U.S. valuation allowance, and remeasurement of net deferred taxes reflecting lower U.S. corporate tax rates; andThe estimated tax effects of above, non-cash changes in net deferred income taxes, and assessments of tax exposures.Non-GAAP diluted shares are adjusted for the impact of additional shares resulting from the exclusion of stock-based compensation from non-GAAP income. Non-GAAP diluted shares also include the impact of capped calls, which are anti-dilutive in GAAP earnings per share but are expected to mitigate the dilutive effect of convertible notes, based on the average share price for the period the capped calls were outstanding.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP OUTLOOK
(In millions, except per share amounts)


The tables above reconcile our GAAP to non-GAAP guidance based on the current outlook. The guidance does not incorporate the impact of any potential business combinations, divestitures, restructuring activities, balance sheet valuation adjustments, strategic investments, financing transactions, and other significant transactions. The timing and impact of such items are dependent on future events that may be uncertain or outside of our control.
