Pro Forma net income (earnings) per share
Management believes that net income per share before the impact of foreign currency transaction gains or losses and other one-time items is an important measure. The majority of the Company’s consolidated foreign currency gain or loss results from transactions involving the Euro, the British Pound Sterling and the Taiwan Dollar and from the exchange rate impact of the significant cash and marketable securities, receivables and payables held in U.S. dollars at the end of each reporting period by the Company’s various non U.S. subsidiaries. Such gains or losses are required under GAAP because the functional currency of the subsidiaries differs from the currency in which various assets and liabilities are held. However, there is minimal cash impact from such foreign currency gains or losses. Accordingly, earnings per share before the impact of foreign currency transaction gains or losses allow an assessment of the Company’s operating performance before the non-cash impact of the position of the U.S. Dollar versus other currencies, which permits a consistent comparison of results between periods.
The following table contains a reconciliation of GAAP net income per share to pro forma net income per share.
