West Pharmaceutical Services CEO Discusses Q3 2010 - Earnings Call Transcript
Many of the factors that will determine the Company’s future results are beyond the ability of the Company to control or predict. These statements are subject to known or unknown risks or uncertainties and therefore actual results could differ materially from past results and those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statement. You should bear this in mind as you consider forward-looking statements.
For a non-exclusive list of those factors which could cause actual results to differ from expectations, please refer to today’s press release. Investors are also advised to consult any further disclosures the Company makes on related subjects in the Company’s 10-K, 10-Q, and AK reports. Except as required by applicable securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
In addition, during today’s call management may make reference to non-GAAP financial measures including adjusting operating profit and adjusted diluted EPS. These measures have no standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to and should not be viewed as a substitute for U.S. GAAP operating income and diluted EPS. Reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable financial results compared in conformity to GAAP are provided in materials accompanying this morning’s earnings release.
