GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations (unaudited)
 
The table below shows the computations of tangible equity and tangible assets and certain related ratios, all of which are considered to be non-GAAP financial measures. The tangible equity to tangible assets ratio has become a focus of some investors and management believes this ratio may assist in analyzing the Corporation's capital position, absent the effects of intangible assets. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation, or as substitute for analysis of results reported under GAAP. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the non-GAAP measures presented in the following table may not be comparable to those reported by other companies.
