"Our team capped another strong year for EFI by delivering an outstanding quarter despite the continued macro headwinds we have had to overcome all year," said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI. "As we begin 2016, we remain deeply committed to developing innovative technology to make our customers more competitive and productive."
To better understand trends in our business, EFI believes that it is helpful to adjust revenue and earnings per share to exclude the impact of year-over-year changes in the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. This is accomplished by using the exchange rate in effect during the comparable prior period. EFI refers to this adjusted revenue and earnings per share as "ex-currency." Management believes the ex-currency measure provides investors an additional perspective on year-over-year financial trends. The year-over-year currency impact can be determined as the difference between year-over-year actual growth rates and year-over-year ex-currency growth rates.
