Adoption of New Revenue Standard ASC 606
During May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued updates to accounting standards related to revenue recognition ("ASC 606").

Accordingly, the financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 presented in this release have been prepared under ASC 606. In order to provide meaningful comparisons to prior periods, VMware has included financial statements for the three and nine months ended November 3, 2017, adjusted for ASC 606, and the balance sheet as of the end of fiscal 2018, adjusted for ASC 606. All year-over-year comparisons in this release compare third quarter of fiscal 2019 results to the third quarter of fiscal 2018 as adjusted for ASC 606.
To further assist investors, the financial tables in this release also include a supplemental unearned revenue schedule for the second, third and fourth quarters of fiscal 2018 as adjusted for ASC 606.
