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 6 provides 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, and IT Services Revenue on a constant currency basis, which is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated by translating IT Services Revenue from the current reporting period into U.S. dollars based on the currency conversion rate in effect for the prior reporting period. We consider a stock option award with a graded vesting schedule to be in substance a single award not multiple stock option awards and accordingly believe the straight line amortization reflects the economic substance of the award. We refer to growth rates in constant currency so that business results may be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of our business performance. We believe 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.

These Non-GAAP financial measures are 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 these non-GAAP measures, the financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable IFRS financial measure should be carefully evaluated.

For 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. Management of the Company also uses Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income, in addition to the corresponding IFRS measure, in reviewing our financial results.

Results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, computed under IFRS, along with individual business segment reports, are available in the Investors section of our website at www.wipro.com.

Quarterly Conference Calls
We will hold a conference call today at 02:00 p.m. Indian Standard Time (04:30 a.m. US Eastern Time) and at 6:15 p.m. Indian Standard Time (8:45 a.m. US Eastern Time) to discuss our performance for the quarter.
