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 investors 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.
