In addition, for the full year, we expect our non-GAAP tax rate, which is based on our long-term non-GAAP financial projection, to be 16% in FY19.

Taking these considerations into account, we are providing the following outlook. Q1 '19 non-GAAP diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $0.50 to $0.53; Q1 '19 GAAP diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $0.46 to $0.49. We are maintaining our full-year fiscal 2019 non-GAAP diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $2.12 to $2.22 and full-year fiscal '19 GAAP diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $2.04 to $2.14.
