Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company provides certain information regarding the Company’s financial results or projected financial results on a non-GAAP “constant currency basis.” This information estimates the impact of changes in foreign currency rates on the translation of the Company’s current or projected future period financial results as compared to the applicable comparable period. This impact is derived by taking the adjusted current or projected local currency results and translating them into U.S. Dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates for the applicable comparable period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the Company’s results or business. Non-GAAP information is not a substitute for, and is not superior to, information presented on a GAAP basis.
