NOTES ON NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. These measures include (i) adjusted diluted earnings per share, which excludes, depending on the period presented, the effect of charges associated with a goodwill impairment, our restructuring programs and asset impairments, losses and other charges related to acquisition costs, gain on sale of businesses and assets, refinancing transactions and costs associated with severance payments and benefits to be provided to our former chief executive officer, charges associated with the amortization of additional interest expense related to an interest rate swap terminated in 2011, intangible amortization expense, the amortization of debt discount on convertible notes and certain tax adjustments relating to the resolution of various tax matters relating to prior years; and (ii) constant currency revenue and growth, which exclude the impact of translating the results of international subsidiaries at different currency exchange rates from period to period. Consistent with past practice, adjusted diluted earnings per share has not been adjusted to exclude the benefit resulting from the forfeiture of equity awards. Management believes these measures are useful to investors because they eliminate items that do not reflect Teleflex’s day-to-day operations. In addition, management uses these financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when publicly providing guidance on possible future results, and to assist in our evaluation of period-to-period comparisons. These financial measures are presented in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Tables reconciling these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are set forth below. This press release also includes forecasted constant currency revenue growth, which is also a non-GAAP measure. A reconciliation of forecasted constant currency revenue growth to GAAP forecasted growth has not been provided as management is unable to forecast trends in foreign currency exchange rates.
