Management believes that this measure -- which adds back amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on debt, asset impairment and restructuring charges, inventory adjustments, costs related to the Meadville Holdings transaction and miscellaneous closing costs as well as the associated tax impact of these charges -- provides additional useful information to investors regarding the Company's ongoing financial condition and results of operations.
A material limitation associated with the use of the above non-GAAP financial measure is that it has no standardized measurement prescribed by GAAP and may not be comparable with similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of each non-GAAP financial measure and reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.Safe Harbor Statement This release contains forward-looking statements that relate to future events or performance.
