** Due to the differences between the quarterly and year-to-date weighted average share count calculations and rounding to the nearest cent per diluted share, totals may not equal the sum of the line items and fiscal year diluted EPS may not equal the sum of the quarters.

Notes:

(1)

 

Impact of Severance-related Reorganization Charges – During Q1 16 and Q3 16, we incurred severance-related reorganization charges due to headcount reduction primarily in our corporate functions totaling approximately $14 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. These charges were recorded as SG&A expense within the unallocated segment.

(2)

Impact of One-time Favorable Tax Adjustment – During Q4 16 we incurred a benefit of approximately $8M, or $0.08 per diluted share, related to tax adjustments associated with intercompany transactions.

(3)

SEC Regulation G – Non-GAAP Information – These tables include non-GAAP operating income, operating margin, income taxes, effective tax rate and diluted EPS. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of our business and facilitate a meaningful evaluation of our quarterly and FY 16 actual results on a comparable basis with prior periods. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in order to have comparable financial results to analyze changes in our underlying business from quarter to quarter. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
