Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes references to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share excludes the impact of impairment, restructuring and other charges, acquired intangible assets and non-cash interest expense, net of tax.
The Company believes that the inclusion of non-GAAP earnings per share provides additional insight into the operations of the Company. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company also believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides meaningful supplemental information because it excludes amounts that it does not view as reflective of ongoing operating results when planning and forecasting and when assessing the performance of its business.
