Members of Humana Inc.s senior management team are scheduled to meet with investors at various times between March 1, 2018 and March 31, 2018. During the meetings, the company intends to reaffirm its guidance of approximately $13.16 to $13.66 in diluted earnings per common share (EPS), or approximately $13.50 to $14.00 in adjusted EPS, in each case for the year ending December 31, 2018 (FY18). This guidance is consistent with the guidance issued in Humanas press release dated February 7, 2018. The date and time of presentations to investors are available via the Investor Relations calendar on Humanas website at humana.com.
The Company has included adjusted EPS in this current report, a financial measure that is not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Management believes that this measure, when presented in conjunction with the comparable measure of GAAP EPS, is useful to both management and its investors in analyzing the Companys ongoing business and operating performance. Consequently, management uses adjusted EPS as an indicator of the Companys business performance, as well as for operational planning and decision making purposes. Adjusted EPS should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP EPS. A reconciliation of adjusted EPS to GAAP EPS follows:
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
