“Adjusted diluted EPS from continuing operations” excludes from diluted EPS for continuing operations computed in accordance with GAAP the per share impact of significant items.
“Significant items” are income or charges (and related tax impact) that
management believes have had or are likely to have a significant impact
on the earnings of the applicable business segment or on the total
company for the period in which the item is recognized, are not
indicative of the company’s core operating results and affect the
comparability of underlying results from period to period. Significant
items may include, but are not limited to: charges for exit activities;
consulting and advisory costs; lease and contractual obligation exit
costs; impairment charges; pension partial withdrawal liability charges;
debt extinguishment costs; spin-off related costs; tax charges on deemed
repatriated earnings; tax costs and benefits resulting from the
disposition of a business; impact of tax law changes; gains on the sale
of discontinued operations; changes in tax valuation allowances and
favorable or unfavorable resolution of open tax matters based on the
finalization of tax authority examinations or the expiration of statutes
of limitations. Management highlights significant items to provide
greater transparency into the underlying sales or profit trends of
Hillshire Brands or the applicable business segment or discontinued
operations and to enable more meaningful comparability between financial
results from period to period. Additionally, Hillshire Brands believes
that investors desire to understand the impact of these factors to
better project and assess the longer term trends and future financial
performance of the company.
