Birns, executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Our operating cash flow contributed to our very strong and liquid balance sheet enabling us to further fuel organic growth as well as make additional strategic acquisitions."
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes selected financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). This information includes non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs associated with share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets and one-time expenses related to the acquisition of select assets of Multi Service, primarily because we do not believe they are reflective of the company's core operating results. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered in conjunction with our financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, are 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 net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to the presentation of such metrics by other companies. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release.
