First Solar, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2013 Financial Results

Restructuring and Asset Impairments: Included in our GAAP presentation of operating expenses, restructuring and asset impairment costs represent asset impairment and related costs and severance and termination related costs primarily due to a series of restructuring initiatives intended to align the organization with our Long Term Strategic Plan including expected sustainable market opportunities and to reduce costs. We exclude restructuring and asset impairment costs from our non-GAAP measures because the asset impairment portion of the charges does not reflect our cash position or our cash flows from operating activities, and the restructuring charges overall do not reflect future operating expenses, are not indicative of our core operating performance, and are not meaningful in comparing to our past operating performance.
