Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On October 25, 2005, the Registrant issued an earnings release announcing its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2005. A copy of the earnings release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The release includes references to core earnings, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that core earnings, which exclude non-operating items, are more indicative of the Companys operating performance than net earnings. With regard to the Companys results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2005, the earnings release includes a table that reconciles core earnings to net earnings, which the Company believes to be the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
