Non-GAAP Financial Measure In addition to reporting financial measures in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the company provides non-GAAP “pro forma provisions for income taxes”, “pro forma net income”, “pro forma basic income per common share” and “pro forma diluted income per common share”. These amounts are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP.
