In addition to reporting our earnings and other financial measures in accordance
with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), we also report certain
non-GAAP measures, including "tangible" assets and "tangible"
In addition to using these and other non-GAAP measures in our analysis of our financial
performance, we frequently refer to them in our earnings releases, conference calls,
and investor presentations, and in certain of our filings with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
To enable you to understand the differences between
our GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures--and the reasons we believe that
such non-GAAP measures are important--we encourage you to refer to the discussion
and reconciliations of our GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures.
