(1)

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding our results as determined by GAAP, we disclose various non-GAAP financial measures in our quarterly earnings press releases and other public disclosures. The non-GAAP financial measures include: (i) earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) excluding other costs, (ii) net income excluding other costs and (iii) diluted earnings per share excluding other costs. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain other costs and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the schedules herein.

(2)

Other costs includes the transaction costs associated with acquisition activity and severance expenses which are included in operating profit.

(3)

EBITDA % excluding other costs is defined as EBITDA excluding other costs divided by Revenue.

(4)

Other costs, net of tax, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, included a benefit of $2 million and $12 million, after tax, respectively, from changes in the valuation allowance recorded against the Company’s deferred tax assets; as well as, $1 million and $2 million, respectively, after tax, related to transaction costs associated with acquisition activity and severance expenses, which are included in operating profit.

(5)

Totals may not foot due to rounding.
