Walmart Updates FY 14 Underlying EPS Guidance For Fourth Quarter And Full Year

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.Non-GAAP Financial Measures(Unaudited)The following information provides reconciliation for one of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in the press release to which this reconciliation is attached to the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). The company has provided the non-GAAP financial information presented in the press release, which is not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP, as information supplemental and in addition to the financial measures presented in the press release that are calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered superior to, as a substitute for, or as an alternative to, and should be considered in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures presented in the press release. The non-GAAP financial measures in the press release may differ from similar measures used by other companies.

EPS and Underlying EPS Guidance

The estimated range for the underlying diluted earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to Walmart ("Underlying EPS") for the three months and the fiscal year to end Jan. 31, 2014 is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under the SEC’s rules because the Underlying EPS for each such period includes certain amounts not included in the estimated range of diluted earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to Walmart ("EPS") calculated in accordance with GAAP for the three months and the fiscal year to end Jan. 31, 2014. Management believes that the Underlying EPS for the three months and the fiscal year to end Jan. 31, 2014 is a meaningful metric to share with investors because that metric, which adjusts EPS for each of such periods for certain items expected to be recorded in the three months to end Jan. 31, 2014, is the metric that best compares with the EPS for the three months and the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2013, respectively. In addition, the metric affords investors a view of management’s expectations for Walmart’s core earnings performance for the three months and the fiscal year to end Jan. 31, 2014 and the ability to make a more informed assessment of such expected core earnings performance for each of such periods when compared to Walmart’s earnings performance for the three months and the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 2013, respectively.
