The Company currently expects adjusted cash earnings per share for the fourth quarter 2013, assuming foreign currency exchange rates remain stable through the end of the quarter, to be approximately $0.57.
In addition to the results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures, such as constant currency, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income and adjusted cash earnings per share financial measures. These measures should be used in addition to, and not a substitute for, net income, operating income and earnings per share computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's performance and overall results of operations. These non-GAAP measures are also an integral part of the Company's internal reporting and performance assessment for executives and senior management. The non-GAAP measures used by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The attached schedules provide a full reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure.
Constant currency measures are computed as if foreign currency exchange rates did not change from the prior period. This information is provided to illustrate the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on the Company's results when compared to the prior period.
Adjusted operating income is defined as operating income excluding goodwill and acquired intangible asset impairment charges, changes in the value of acquisition contingent consideration and non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income excluding interest, income tax expense, depreciation, amortization, share-based compensation and other non-operating or non-recurring items that are considered expenses under U.S. GAAP.
Adjusted cash earnings per share is defined as diluted U.S. GAAP earnings per share excluding the tax-effected impacts of: a) foreign exchange gains or losses, b) goodwill impairment charges, c) gains or losses from the early retirement of debt, d) share-based compensation, e) acquired intangible asset amortization, f) non-cash interest expense, g) non-cash income tax expense, and h) other non-operating or non-recurring items. Adjusted cash earnings per share includes shares potentially issuable in settlement of convertible bonds or other obligations, if the assumed issuances are dilutive to adjusted cash earnings per share. Adjusted cash earnings per share represents a performance measure and is not intended to represent a liquidity measure.
