About non-GAAP financial measures
To supplement Vistaprint’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Vistaprint has used the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, rules: non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share, free cash flow, constant-currency revenue growth and constant-currency revenue growth excluding revenue from acquisitions made during the past year. The items excluded from the non-GAAP adjusted net income measurements are share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, tax charges related to the alignment of acquisition-related intellectual property with global operations, changes in unrealized gains and losses on currency forward contracts, unrealized currency transaction gains and losses on intercompany financing arrangements and the related tax effect, the charge for the disposal of its minority investment in China, and the change in fair-value estimate of its acquisition-related earn-outs. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment, purchases of intangible assets not related to acquisitions, and capitalization of software and website development costs. Constant-currency revenue growth is estimated by translating all non-U.S. dollar denominated revenue generated in the current period using the prior year period’s average exchange rate for each currency to the U.S. dollar and excludes the impact of gains and losses on effective currency hedges recognized in revenue in the prior year periods. Constant-currency revenue growth excluding revenue from acquisitions during the past year excludes the impact of currency as defined above and revenue from People & Print Group, Pixartprinting and FotoKnudsen.
The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
Vistaprint’s management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information in assessing its performance and liquidity by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of its recurring core business operating results, which could be non-cash charges or discrete cash charges that are infrequent in nature. These non-GAAP financial measures also have facilitated management’s internal comparisons to Vistaprint’s historical performance and its competitors’ operating results.
