Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On March 2, 2006, Google Inc., in connection with its Analyst Day, made available on the Investor Relations section of its corporate web site (www.google.com) certain historical financial information regarding three non-GAAP financial measures, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating expense and free cash flow, for each quarter in 2004 and 2005. George Reyes, Googles Chief Financial Officer will be discussing these financial measures during the CFO Presentation at Googles Analyst Day.
The information is contained in a document labeled CFO Presentation Non-GAAP Financials next to the link to the webcast of the Analyst Day. The tables provided in this document contain details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to these non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliations between these financial measures for each quarter of 2004 and 2005. A copy of the financial data made available on Googles corporate web site is furnished as Exhibit 99.01 to this Form 8-K.
Googles management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of core business operating results. Google believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing Googles performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate managements internal comparisons to Googles historical performance and liquidity and its competitors operating results. Google believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making.
This information shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
