GAAP VERSUS NON-GAAP PRESENTATION
The Company provides adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share in this press release as additional information regarding the Company's operating results. These measures are not in accordance with — or an alternative for — GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share measures used by other companies. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors' understanding of its historical operating trends, because it provides important supplemental measurement information in evaluating the operating results of its business, as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results. The Company consequently believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with useful insight into its profitability. This release should be read in conjunction with its Form 8-K earnings release filing for the quarter and full year ended December 31, 2009.

The non-GAAP adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share exclude the impact of acquisition-related costs and the amortization thereof; the recapture of previously recognized sales tax expense; stock option expense; asset impairment charges; and restructuring charges — all net of income tax effects and unusual tax adjustments. A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP adjustments is included in the supplemental information attached to this release.
