The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures used in managing the business may provide investors with additional information regarding underlying trends and ongoing results on a comparable basis.  Specifically, management believes that production based revenues and adjusted operating profit allow the investor to gain insight into the current operating performance of the Company. Please see the section of this press release "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" to view the reconciliation tables previously presented in the body of the press release.  Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP financial measures, and you should not consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of the Company's results as reported under U.S. GAAP.
