Certain fiscal year 2012 reclassifications have been reflected retroactively to provide comparability.

(a) During the first quarter of fiscal year 2012, Citrix reviewed the presentation of its Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and adopted a revised presentation, which the company believes is more comparable to those presented by other companies in the industry. As a result, technical support, hardware maintenance and software updates revenues, which were previously presented in Technical Services and License Updates are classified together as License Updates and Maintenance. A corresponding change was made to rename Cost of Services Revenues to Cost of Services and Maintenance Revenues; however, there was no change in classification. Product training, certification and consulting services, which were previously presented in Technical Services, are classified together as Professional Services. Product Licenses has been renamed to Product and Licenses to more appropriately describe its composition of both software and hardware; however, there was no change in classification. The classification of Software as a Service remains unchanged. This change in manner of presentation does not affect the Company's total net revenues, total cost of net revenues or gross margin.

Conforming changes related to (a) have been made for the prior period presented, as follows:
