The Committee may, in its discretion, adjust any evaluation of performance under a Performance Goal to remove the effect of equity compensation expense under ASC 718, amortization of acquired technology and intangibles, asset write-downs, litigation or claim judgments or settlements; the effect of changes in or provisions under the tax law, accounting principles or other such laws or provisions affecting reported results, accruals for reorganization
and restructuring programs; discontinued operations; and any items that are extraordinary, unusual in nature, non-recurring or infrequent in occurrence.
