The net effect of these items decreased net income by $15.7 million, or $0.19 diluted earnings per share available to common shareholders.

The net effect of these items decreased net income by $34.8 million, or $0.40 diluted earnings per share available to common shareholders.

The net effect of these items decreased net income by $35.2 million, or $0.41 diluted earnings per share available to common shareholders.
  • For the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, the following items affected the comparability of results between periods: (i) charges of $14.3 million pre-tax for acquisition related items including purchased research and development, transaction costs, purchase accounting adjustments and integration costs; (ii) charges of $246.5 million pre-tax related to legal settlements and commitments; (iii) charges of $11.5 million pre-tax for the impairment of Greek bonds; (iv) net charges of $7.8 million pre-tax for restructuring costs; and (v) a decrease of $17.6 million in the income tax provision associated with audit settlements related to the completion of IRS examinations for the tax years from 2005 through 2007 and certain examinations in other jurisdictions. The net effect of these items decreased net income by $240.9 million, or $2.71 diluted earnings per share available to common shareholders.

This press release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP measures are reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the above tables.

This press release includes net sales excluding the impact of foreign exchange. The company analyzes net sales on a constant currency basis to better measure the comparability of results between periods. Because changes in foreign currency exchange rates have a non-operating impact on net sales, the company believes that evaluating growth in net sales on a constant currency basis provides an additional and meaningful assessment of net sales to both management and the company’s investors.

In addition, this press release includes the following non-GAAP measures: (1) cost of goods sold excluding charges for acquisition related items; (2) marketing, selling and administrative expense excluding charges for acquisition related items; (3) research and development expense excluding charges for acquisition related items; (4) other (income) expense, net, excluding charges for acquisition related items, asset impairments, legal settlements and commitments, restructuring and impairment of bonds; (5) income tax provision excluding an increase due to the write-down of a tax receivable in a foreign jurisdiction, a decrease due to audit settlements, and the tax effect of the items set forth in (1) through (4) above; (6) net income excluding the items set forth in (1) through (5) above; and (7) diluted earnings per share available to common shareholders excluding the items set forth in (1) through (5) above.

The company excluded the items described above because they may cause certain statements of operations categories not to be indicative of ongoing operating results, and therefore affect the comparability of results between periods. The company therefore believes that these non-GAAP measures provide an additional and meaningful assessment of the company’s ongoing operating performance. Because the company has historically reported these non-GAAP results to the investment community, management also believes that the inclusion of these non-GAAP measures provides consistency in its financial reporting and facilitates investors’ understanding of the company’s historic operating trends by providing an additional basis for comparisons to prior periods. Management uses these non-GAAP measures: (1) to establish financial and operational goals; (2) to monitor the company’s actual performance in relation to its business plan and operating budgets; (3) to evaluate the company’s core operating performance and understand key trends within the business; and (4) as part of several components it considers in determining incentive compensation.

Management recognizes that the use of these non-GAAP measures has limitations, including the fact that they may not be comparable with similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies and that management must exercise judgment in determining which types of charges or other items should be excluded from the non-GAAP information. Management compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of each non-GAAP measure and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. All non-GAAP measures are intended to supplement the applicable GAAP disclosures and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a replacement for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures, please see the above tables.
