Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions:
On August 3, 2006, we announced via press release our preliminary results for the quarter ended June 30, 2006. A copy of our press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. This Form 8-K and the attached exhibit are being furnished, but not filed, under Item 9.01 of Form 8-K.
In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we presented non-GAAP financial measures, including specifically, adjusted net income per diluted share which is comprised of reported diluted earnings per share excluding the impact of merger-related purchase accounting, other merger and transaction-related direct costs, non-cash stock compensation, minority interests, non-cash amortization of acquired intangible assets and other significant non-operating items. The company believes that this non-GAAP measure is relevant to investors in understanding the underlying operating performance of the company and uses this measure internally to monitor, measure and reward performance. These measures should be considered as supplemental to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP net income and non-GAAP pro forma net income is presented in the press release.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
