These measurements are not a substitute for GAAP measurements, although the Company's management uses these measurements as an aid in monitoring the Company's on-going financial performance. The adjusted Non-GAAP net earnings attributable to II-VI Incorporated and adjusted Non-GAAP earnings per share measure the earnings of the Company excluding unusual items that are considered by management to be outside of the normal on-going operations of the Company. There are limitations with the use of Non-GAAP financial measures, including that Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies; that there can be no assurance that excluded items in the Non-GAAP financial measures will not occur in the future, and that there could be cash costs associated with items excluded in the Non-GAAP financial measures. The Company compensates for these limitations by using these Non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by providing the reconciliations of the Non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors should consider adjusted measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
