Additionally, on April 30, 2020, the Board of Directors approved the quarterly dividend of $0.20 per share of common stock, payable on May 27, 2020, to stockholders of record on May 20, 2020.

Xperi and TiVo Merger
Special stockholder meetings of both Xperi and TiVo to consider and vote on the merger will be held on May 29, 2020. Additionally, the business combination has cleared all regulatory hurdles, has committed financing, and is on track for closing in early June.

Financial Guidance
Consequent with the introduction of the revenue accounting standard, ASC 606, the Company announced it would begin using billings as a key measure of business progress. As a result, the Company’s outlook is now based on billings rather than GAAP revenue. For additional information regarding the Company’s approach to guidance, please review the “ASC 606 Business Metrics and Guidance Approach” presentation given by the Company on January 25, 2018, at https://investor.xperi.com/events-and-presentations/event-details/2018/ASC-606-Business-Metrics--Guidance-Approach/default.aspx.

The Company’s Q2 2020 outlook for billings is $85-90 million. Given the uncertainties around the impact of COVID-19 on product licensing end markets, and the upcoming merger with TiVo, the Company is suspending its previously provided 2020 billings outlook.

Due to the expected close of the merger with TiVo in early June, management will provide more commentary around expenses for the second quarter of 2020 on its earnings conference call at 2:00PM Pacific Time today.

Conference Call Information
The Company will hold its first quarter 2020 earnings conference call at 2:00 PM Pacific Time (5:00 PM Eastern Time) on Wednesday, May 6, 2020. To access the call in the U.S., please dial 800-309-1256, and for international callers dial +1 323-347-3622, approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the conference call.

Billings
Billings reflect amounts in an accounting period invoiced to customers, less any credits issued to or paid to customers, plus amounts due under certain licensing-related contractual arrangements that may not be subject to an invoice. Management evaluates the Company’s financial performance in part based on billings due to the close alignment between billings and cash receipts from licensing activity, and believes billings is an important metric to provide to readers of our financial results. Billings may vary materially from revenue recorded under U.S. GAAP.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures adjusted for either one-time or ongoing non-cash acquired intangibles amortization charges, acquired in-process research and development, costs related to actual or planned business combinations, all forms of stock-based compensation, interest income from significant financing components under Topic 606, realized and unrealized gains or losses on marketable equity securities, restructuring and other related exit costs. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures used in this release provide investors with important perspectives into the Company’s ongoing business performance. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. All financial data is presented on a GAAP basis except where the Company indicates its presentation is on a non-GAAP basis.

Set forth below are reconciliations of the Company’s reported GAAP to non-GAAP financial metrics.
