SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

SCHEDULE A: RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

(Unaudited and unreviewed), (All tables provide Dollars in millions, Except per Share Data)

In addition to its reported results and guidance calculated in accordance with GAAP, the company has included in this release adjusted net income and adjusted diluted EPS, performance measures that the Securities and Exchange Commission defines as "non-GAAP financial measures." Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the company's reported or forecasted results, in each case calculated in accordance with GAAP, can provide useful supplemental information for investors because they facilitate a period to period comparative assessment of the company's operating performance relative to its performance based on reported or forecasted results under GAAP, while isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance and eliminate certain charges that management believes do not reflect the company's operations and underlying operational performance. The company's definition of adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other companies may not calculate them in the same manner as the company does and should not be viewed in isolation from nor as alternatives to net income or diluted EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The following is a reconciliation of net income, presented and reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, to net income adjusted for certain items:

(1) Based on interim income tax reporting rules, these expenses are not considered discrete items. As a result, the company's full year effective tax rate is impacted by these items. When applying the full year effective tax rate to year-to-date income, the company's year-to-date tax provision recorded with respect to these non-GAAP adjustments is different from the forecasted full-year tax provision impact of these items. As a consequence, adjustments to the year-to-date and quarterly tax impacts will be recorded as the adjusted full year effective tax rate is applied to income in subsequent periods. Additionally, adjustments to items unrelated to these non-GAAP adjustments may have an effect on the income tax impact of these non-GAAP adjustments in subsequent periods. The company plans to update the income tax impact of these items in subsequent interim reporting periods.
(2) Excludes tax impact of $0.9 million and $13.1 million for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2015, respectively.
(3) Excludes tax impact of $1.0 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively; and $2.9 million and $4.5 million for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
