Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different than the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) in in the statement of income, statement of comprehensive income, balance sheet, statement of cash flows, or statement of equity of the Company. The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein include adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted EPS, and ROIC. These measures include adjustments in the three and nine months ended March 31, 2018 for the provisional discrete tax items related to the U.S. Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Reform”) enacted in and in the nine months ended March 31, 2017 related to proceeds from a lawsuit settlement and a bargain purchase gain on the acquisition of Aircom Manufacturing, Inc. Reconciliations of the reported GAAP numbers to these non-GAAP financial measures are included in the financial highlights table below. Management believes it is useful for investors to understand how its core operations performed without the effects of the discrete tax items related to Tax Reform, proceeds from the lawsuit settlement, and the bargain purchase gain. Excluding these amounts allows investors to meaningfully trend, analyze, and benchmark the performance of the Company’s core operations. Many of the Company’s internal performance measures that management uses to make certain operating decisions exclude these items to enable meaningful trending of core operating metrics.
