Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Return on average invested capital (“ROIC”) is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as operating income (adjusted for certain items that are unusual in nature or whose fluctuations from period to period do not necessarily correspond to changes in the operations of the company) after tax, divided by average invested capital. We believe this measure is useful in understanding operational performance and capital allocation over time.
This measure is not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Certain information necessary to calculate this measure on a GAAP basis is dependent on future events, some of which are beyond our control, and cannot be predicted without unreasonable efforts. This non-GAAP measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to, the reported financial results of the company prepared in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate these measures differently from us, thereby limiting the usefulness of the measure for comparison with others.
