World Fuel Services: Non-Gaap Financial Measures
The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing
This press release includes selected financial information that has not
been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). Specifically, we have used
non-GAAP accretion to earnings per share, which excludes amortization of
acquired intangible assets, primarily because we do not believe it is
reflective of the company’s core operating results. We believe that this
non-GAAP financial measure, when considered in conjunction with our
financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, is useful for
to evaluate our core operating results and trends.
Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from,
or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance
with GAAP. In addition, our presentation of non-GAAP accretion may not
be comparable to the presentation of such metric by other companies.
Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP
measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure contained
in this press release.
