Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition
The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including the Exhibit attached hereto, is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be filed for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section.

Earnings as adjusted (Non-GAAP) is a measure of income that differs from earnings from continuing operations measured in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Earnings as adjusted (Non-GAAP) is income from continuing operations per our consolidated results, adjusted for exclusion of restructuring and impairment charges (credits). Management believes that both earnings from continuing operations and earnings as adjusted for exclusion of these special charges and credits assist the investor in understanding the results of operations of The Lubrizol Corporation. In addition, management and the Board of Directors of The Lubrizol Corporation evaluate results using the earnings from continuing operations and earnings as adjusted.
