Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On August 1, 2019, Teleflex Incorporated (the “Company”) issued a press release (the “Press Release”) announcing its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.
In addition to the financial information included in the Press Release that has been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), the Press Release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. These measures include constant currency revenue growth and adjusted diluted earnings per share. Constant currency revenue growth is based upon net revenues, adjusted to eliminate the impact of translating the results of international subsidiaries at different currency exchange rates from period to period. The impact of changes in foreign currency may vary significantly from period to period, and generally are outside of the control of our management. We believe that this measure facilitates a comparison of our operating performance exclusive of fluctuations that do not reflect our underlying performance or business trends. Adjusted diluted earnings per share is based upon diluted earnings per share available to common stockholders, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, adjusted to exclude, depending on the period presented, the impact (net of tax) of (i) restructuring, restructuring related and impairment items; (ii) acquisition, integration and divestiture related items; (iii) other items identified in note (C) to each of the reconciliation tables set forth in the Press Release for the quarters ended June 30, 2019 and July 1, 2018; (iv) certain expenditures associated with the registration of medical devices under the European Union Medical Device Regulation; (v) intangible amortization expense; and (vi) tax adjustments. Management does not believe that any of the excluded items are indicative of our underlying core performance or business trends.
Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to assess the Company's financial performance, make operating decisions, allocate financial resources, provide guidance on possible future results, and assist in its evaluation of period-to-period and peer comparisons. The non-GAAP measures may be useful to investors because they provide insight into management’s assessment of our business, and provide supplemental information pertinent to a comparison of period-to-period results of our ongoing operations. The non-GAAP financial measures are presented in addition to results presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be relied upon as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Moreover, our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.
