Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including organic revenue growth, non-GAAP EPS, non-GAAP operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted operating margin, which exclude acquisition-related and restructuring and other charges. We exclude the above items because they are outside of our normal operations and/or, in certain cases, are difficult to forecast accurately for future periods. We believe that the use of non-GAAP measures helps investors to gain a better understanding of our core operating results and future prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts the Company’s performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods or guidance.We exclude certain acquisition-related charges or credits and associated tax effects, including charges for the sale of inventories revalued at the date of acquisition, significant transaction costs such as legal fees and credits associated with bargain purchases. We exclude these costs because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs.
