Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP measures provide additional information on the performance or liquidity of our business that we believe are useful for investors.
Adjusted net income, net debt, free cash flow, cash conversion and their related ratios are non-GAAP measures and should not be considered alternatives to the applicable U.S. GAAP measures. In particular, adjusted net income, net debt, free cash flow, cash conversion and their related ratios, should not be considered as measurements of our financial performance or liquidity under U.S. GAAP, as alternatives to income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.
Adjusted net income, net debt, free cash flow and cash conversion are measures of financial performance and liquidity, and have limitations as analytical tools, and should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, an analysis of our results of operations, including our operating income and cash flows, as reported under U.S. GAAP. We provide these non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that such measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors about the Company's core operating results and liquidity, primarily because the non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses and other amounts that management does not consider to be indicative of the Company's core operating results or business outlook or liquidity. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to the corresponding U.S. GAAP financial measures, in evaluating the Company's operating performance, in planning and forecasting future periods, in making decisions regarding business operations and allocation of resources, and in comparing the Company's performance against its historical performance. Some of the limitations of adjusted net income and free cash flow and their related ratios as measures are:
- they do not reflect our cash expenditure or future requirements for capital expenditure or contractual commitments, nor do they reflect the actual cash contributions received from customers;
- they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
- although amortization and share-based compensation are non-cash charges, the assets being amortized will often have to be replaced in the future and such measures do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements; and
- other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
Because of these limitations, investors should rely on AVG's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and treat the Company's non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental information only.
For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, please see "Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures." All non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the comparable information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
