|Item 2.02||Results of Operations and Financial Condition.|
By press release dated November 4, 2010, the Company announced its financial results for the three months ended October 3, 2010. The full text of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The information in this Form 8-K and the Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act) or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by special reference in such filing.
In the press release and accompanying supplemental information, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: free cash flow, EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted operating income, and adjusted earnings per share (EPS). Management of the Company believes that free cash flow (defined as net cash flow from operating activities, less capital expenditures and dividends paid) is an important measure of its liquidity as well as its ability to service long-term debt, fund future growth and to provide a return to shareholders. We also believe this free cash flow definition does not have any material limitations. EBIT (defined as net income plus interest expense, net plus provision for income taxes), EBITDA (defined as net income plus interest expense, net, plus provision for income taxes, plus depreciation and amortization), adjusted operating income (defined as operating income, excluding the impact of special and asbestos charges), and adjusted EPS (defined as earnings per common share, excluding special charges and the Q4 2009 five year future asbestos claim liability, net of tax) are provided because management believes these measurements are useful for investors and financial institutions to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance. Free cash flow, EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted operating income, and adjusted EPS are not measurements for financial performance under GAAP and should not be construed as a substitute for cash flows, operating income, net income or earnings per share. Free cash flow, EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted operating income, and adjusted EPS as we have calculated here, may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of free cash flow, EBIT, EBITDA, adjusted operating income, and adjusted EPS to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided in the supplemental information table titled Reconciliation of Key Performance Measures to Commonly Used Generally Accepted Accounting Principle Terms which is included as an attachment to the press release.
