Allergan Reports Third Quarter 2012 Operating Results

Stocks in this article: AGN

This press release includes non-GAAP financial measures, as defined in Regulation G promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, with respect to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011 and with respect to anticipated results for the fourth quarter and full year of 2012. Allergan believes that its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to investors regarding its operational performance because it enhances an investor’s overall understanding of the financial performance and prospects for the future of Allergan’s core business activities by providing a basis for the comparison of results of core business operations between current, past and future periods. The presentation of historical non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for results as reported under GAAP.

In this press release, Allergan reported the non-GAAP financial measures “non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to Allergan, Inc. stockholders” and “non-GAAP earnings attributable to Allergan, Inc.” and its subcomponents “non-GAAP other revenue,” “non-GAAP cost of sales,” “non-GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses,” “non-GAAP research and development expenses,” “non-GAAP amortization of acquired intangible assets,” “non-GAAP impairment of intangible assets and related costs,” ”non-GAAP restructuring charges,” “non-GAAP operating income,” “non-GAAP interest expense,” “non-GAAP other, net,” “non-GAAP earnings before income taxes,” “non-GAAP provision for income taxes,” and “non-GAAP net earnings.” Allergan uses non-GAAP earnings to enhance the investor’s overall understanding of the financial performance and prospects for the future of Allergan’s core business activities. Non-GAAP earnings is one of the primary indicators management uses for planning and forecasting in future periods, including trending and analyzing the core operating performance of Allergan’s business from period to period without the effect of the non-core business items indicated. Management uses non-GAAP earnings to prepare operating budgets and forecasts and to measure Allergan’s performance against those budgets and forecasts on a corporate and segment level. Allergan also uses non-GAAP earnings for evaluating management performance for compensation purposes.
