Towers Watson Reports Strong Second Quarter Earnings

Stocks in this article: TW

Since the merger in January 2010, we have incurred significant acquisition-related expenses related to the transaction and integration activities necessary to combine Watson Wyatt and Towers Perrin. These acquisition-related expenses include transaction and integration costs, severance costs, non-cash charges for amortization of intangible assets, and stock-based compensation costs from the issuance of merger-related restricted shares. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share are important in illustrating what our operating results would have been had we not incurred these acquisition-related expenses. We consider Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share to be important financial measures, which we use to internally evaluate and assess our core operations, and benchmark our operating results against our competitors. We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate and measure performance under our performance-based compensation plans.

Reconciliations of net income before non-controlling interests to Adjusted EBITDA and Diluted Earnings Per Share to Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share are included in the accompanying tables to today’s press release.

Each of these non-U.S. GAAP measures is not defined in the same manner by all companies, and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Non-U.S. GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, the information contained within our financial statements.
