Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition

On October 21, 2015, SanDisk Corporation ( SanDisk or the Company ) issued a press release to report its financial results for its third quarter ended September 27, 2015.

The press release, related Prepared Remarks for Investors and investor presentation are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1, 99.2 and 99.3, respectively, and are incorporated herein in their entirety by reference. In addition to the preliminary condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the attached documents contains non-GAAP measures of operating results, net income and net income per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain expenses, gains and losses. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the users overall understanding of SanDisks current financial performance and its prospects for the future.

In addition, SanDisks non-GAAP diluted shares are adjusted for the impact of expensing share-based compensation and include the impact of SanDisks call options which, when exercised, will offset the issuance of dilutive shares from SanDisks convertible senior notes , while SanDisks GAAP diluted shares exclude the anti-dilutive impact of these call options. These non-GAAP results are some of the...
