These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for, the comparable GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of certain events, activities or strategic decisions. The accounting effects of these events, activities or decisions, which are included in the comparable GAAP financial measures, may make it difficult to assess the transaction.
By excluding certain accounting effects, both positive and negative, from these GAAP financial measures, we believe that we are providing meaningful supplemental information to facilitate an understanding of the transaction. While some of the items we exclude from GAAP financial measures may recur, they tend to be disparate in amount, frequency, and timing.
