Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We monitor our operations through the use of several non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful and relevant information regarding our operating results and enhance the reader’s ability to assess our financial performance and financial position. These measures facilitate management’s ability to identify operational trends, as well as make decisions regarding future spending, resource allocations and other operational decisions as they provide additional transparency with respect to our core operations. These financial measures have no standardized meaning in U.S. GAAP, and are unlikely to be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies, and are not intended to be substitutes for measures of financial performance and financial position as prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
Our primary non-GAAP financial measures are defined as follows:
Operating Profit of Industrial Activities is defined as net sales less cost of goods sold, selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses and research and development expenses.
Operating Profit of Financial Services is defined as revenues, less SG&A expenses, interest expenses and certain other operating expenses.
We provide a reconciliation of Operating Profit to Net Income, which is the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure included in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.
