Safe Harbor Statement
This press release contains comments that are “forward-looking” statements that involve risks and uncertainties; these statements are subject to the safe harbor created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Any number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated or forecasted results, including, but not limited to, expanded international operations that expose the Company to greater risks than its operations in domestic markets; risks in connection with our growth which includes strategic acquisitions; costs and delays in connection with the Company's new ERP system; the ability to forecast volatility in earnings resulting from the quarterly revaluation of the Company's earnout obligation to the sellers of CDC and Imago; risks associated with consolidation of the Company's vendors; risks in connection with compliance with laws and regulations governing the Company's international business; macroeconomic circumstances that could impact the business, such as currency fluctuations, credit market conditions, and an economic downturn; the timing and amount of any share repurchases; the exercise of discretion by the Company to make any repurchase or continue the share repurchase authorization; and changes to the source of funds for any repurchases. For more information concerning factors that could cause actual results to differ from anticipated results, see the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2014, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as may be required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to disclosing results that are determined in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company also discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, which are summarized below. Non-GAAP financial measures are used to better understand and evaluate performance, including comparisons from period to period. The Company completed an acquisition on September 19, 2014 and has a planned acquisition that it expects to close on or before December 31, 2014. Both of these acquisitions are structured with earnout payments. Given the size of the acquisitions and potential variability of fair value adjustments on operating results, non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions and change in fair value of contingent consideration.
Net sales excluding the translation impact of foreign currencies: The Company discusses the percentage change in net sales excluding the translation impact from changes in foreign currency exchange rates between reporting periods. This measure enhances comparability between periods to help analyze underlying trends.
Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS: To evaluate current period performance on a clearer and more consistent basis with prior periods, the Company discloses non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Non-GAAP results exclude amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions and change in the fair value of contingent consideration. Results for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 also exclude acquisition costs. Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP EPS measures are useful in better assessing and understanding the Company's operating performance, especially when comparing results with previous periods or forecasting performance for future periods.
Return on invested capital ("ROIC"): Management uses ROIC as a performance measurement to assess efficiency in allocating capital under the Company's control to generate returns. Management believes this metric balances the Company's operating results with asset and liability management, is not impacted by capitalization decisions and is considered to have a strong correlation with shareholder value creation. In addition, it is easily computed, communicated and understood. ROIC also provides management a measure of the Company's profitability on a basis more comparable to historical or future periods.
ROIC assists management in comparing the Company's performance over various reporting periods on a consistent basis because it removes from operating results the impact of items that do not reflect core operating performance. Starting this quarter, adjusted earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") excludes the change in fair value of contingent consideration, in addition to other non-GAAP adjustments. Management believes the calculation of ROIC provides useful information to investors and is an additional relevant comparison of the Company's performance during the year. In addition, the Company's Board of Directors uses ROIC in evaluating business and management performance. Certain management incentive compensation targets are set and measured relative to ROIC.
These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and the non-GAAP financial measures that the Company reports may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Analysis of results and outlook on a non-GAAP basis should be considered in addition to, and not in substitution for or as superior to, measurements of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the Company's non-GAAP financial information to GAAP is set forth in the following Supplementary Information tables.
