Reconciliation to U.S. GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) Measures

(Unaudited, in millions, except per share and ratio data)


Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements and segment net sales and profit presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, additional non-GAAP financial measures are provided and reconciled in the following tables.  In addition to these non-GAAP measures, the Company also provides rates of revenue change at constant currency on a consolidated and segment basis if different than the reported  measures. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results.  The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze the Company's business trends and operating performance.
