The Company discloses in this press release the non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted income from operations and adjusted net income.  Each of adjusted income from operations and adjusted net income provide supplementary information about the impacts of acquisition related expenses and foreign-exchange impacts on inter-company loans.  Over the past three years, we have completed six acquisitions, two of which were transformative for the Company. The costs we incurred in completing such acquisitions, including the amortization of intangibles and deferred financing costs, have been excluded from these measures because their size and inconsistent frequency are unrelated to our commercial performance during the period, and which we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operating costs. We exclude the impact of currency translation from these measures because foreign exchange rates are not under management's control and are subject to volatility. We believe the presentation of adjusted income from operations and adjusted net income provides useful information in assessing our underlying business trends and facilitates comparison of our long-term performance over given periods

The non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company's industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The Company's non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to actual net income growth derived from income amounts presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results.
