B/E AEROSPACE, INC.
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This release includes “adjusted operating earnings,” “adjusted operating margin,” “CMS adjusted operating earnings,” “CMS adjusted operating margin,” “adjusted net earnings,” “adjusted net earnings per diluted share,” “free cash flow,” and “free cash flow conversion ratio,” each of which are “non-GAAP financial measures” as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act).
The Company defines “adjusted net earnings” as net earnings as reported under GAAP before debt prepayment costs. The Company defines “adjusted net earnings per diluted share” as net earnings per diluted share as reported under GAAP before debt prepayment costs.The Company defines “adjusted operating earnings” as operating earnings as reported under GAAP before AIT costs. “Adjusted operating margin” is adjusted operating earnings reflected as a percentage of revenue for the relevant period on a consolidated or segment basis. The Company defines “CMS adjusted operating earnings” as CMS operating earnings before AIT costs. “CMS adjusted operating margin” is adjusted CMS operating earnings reflected as a percentage of revenue for the relevant period on a segment basis. The Company uses adjusted operating earnings, adjusted operating margin, CMS adjusted operating earnings, CMS adjusted operating margin and adjusted earnings per diluted share to evaluate and assess the operational strength and performance of the business and of particular segments of the business. The Company believes these financial measures are relevant and useful for investors because it allows investors to have a better understanding of the Company’s actual operating performance unaffected by the AIT costs associated with recent acquisitions and by the costs associated with our recent debt refinancing. These financial measures should not be viewed as a substitute for, or superior to, operating earnings, in the case of adjusted operating earnings, or net earnings, the most directly comparable GAAP measures, as a measure of the Company’s operating performance.
