Any of these factors could have an adverse and/or fluctuating effect on Carpenter’s results of operations. The forward-looking statements in this document are intended to be subject to the safe harbor protection provided by Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Carpenter undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. Non-GAAP Financial Measures Some of the information included in this presentation is derived from Carpenter’s consolidated financial information but is not presented in Carpenter’s financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Certain of these data are considered “non-GAAP financial measures” under SEC rules. These non-GAAP financial measures supplement our GAAP disclosures and should not be considered an alternative to the GAAP measure. Reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures and management’s rationale for the use of the non-GAAP financial measures can be found in the Appendix to this presentation.

Appendix of Non-GAAP Schedules

 


Non-GAAP Schedules (Unaudited) Management believes that earnings per share adjusted to exclude the impact of special items is helpful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company, as these costs are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Management uses its results excluding these amounts to evaluate its operating performance and to discuss its business with investment institutions, the Company's board of directors and others. * Discrete income tax charge recorded in Q3-16 as a result of sale of equity method investment in India. * Discrete income tax charge recorded in Q1-17 as a result of decision to make a voluntary pension contribution paid in October 2016. $ Millions except per share amounts Q4-16 Q3-17 Q4-17 FY16 FY17 Net Income 14.9 20.7 25.5 11.3 47.0 Diluted Earnings per Share 0.32 $ 0.44 $ 0.54 $ 0.23 $ 0.99 $ Loss on divestiture of business - - 2.1 - 2.1 Pension curtailment charge - - - - 0.4 Excess inventory write-down - - - 14.7 - Restructuring and asset impairment charges - - - 12.3 - Goodwill impairment - - - 9.3 - Consulting costs 1.4 - - 6.0 - Income tax item * - - - 2.8 2.1 Impact of tax law change - - - (0.8) - Special Items 1.4 - 2.1 44.3 4.6 Net Income excluding Special Items 16.3 20.7 27.6 55.6 51.6 Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Share 0.35 $ 0.44 $ 0.58 $ 1.16 $ 1.08 $

 


Non-GAAP Schedules (Unaudited) Operating Margin Excluding Surcharge Revenue, Pension Earnings, Interest and Deferrals (“Pension EID”) and Special Items Management believes that removing the impacts of raw material surcharge from operating margin provides a more consistent basis for comparing results of operations from period to period, thereby permitting management to evaluate performance and investors to make decisions based on the ongoing operations of the Company. In addition, management believes that excluding the impact of pension EID, which may be volatile due to changes in the financial markets, is helpful in analyzing the true operating performance of the Company. Management believes that removing the impact of special items is helpful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company, as these costs are not indicative of ongoing operating performance.
