Plexus CEO Discusses F4Q2010 Results - Earnings Call Transcript
The company provides non-GAAP supplemental information. For example, our call today may refer to earnings or earnings per share, EPS, excluding restructuring costs or other unusual items. Non-GAAP financial data is provided to facilitate meaningful period-to-period comparisons of underlying operational performance by eliminating infrequent or unusual charges. Similar non-GAAP financial measures including return on invested capital are used for internal management assessments because such measures provide additional insight into ongoing financial performance. For a full reconciliation of non-GAAP supplemental information, please refer to yesterday’s press release and our periodic SEC filings.
Joining me this morning are Dean Foate, President and Chief Executive Officer; Ginger Jones, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; Todd Kelsey, Senior Vice President of Global Customer Services; and Michael Buseman, Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing Operations.
