Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On February 7, 2007, Manhattan Associates, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release providing the results for its financial performance for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2006. A copy of this press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1. Pursuant to General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, this exhibit is furnished and not filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The press release includes, as additional information regarding our operating results, our adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share, which excludes the impact of acquisition-related costs and the amortization thereof, the recapture of previously recognized transaction tax expense, stock option expense under SFAS 123(R), and the severance, accounts receivable, and asset impairment charges recorded in the same period, all net of income tax effects. Adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, operating income, net income and earnings per share under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) and may be different from non-GAAP operating income, net income and earnings per share measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be used as a substitute for, or considered superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with the GAAP.
We believe that these adjusted (non-GAAP) results provide more meaningful information regarding those aspects of our current operating performance that can be effectively managed and consequently have developed our internal reporting, compensation and planning systems using these measures.
For these reasons, we have developed our internal reporting, compensation and planning systems using non-GAAP measures which adjust for these amounts.
We believe the reporting of adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share facilitates investors understanding of our historical operating trends, because it provides important supplemental measurement information in evaluating the operating results of our business as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results and thus provide the investors with useful insight into our profitability exclusive of unusual adjustments. While these adjusted items may not be considered as non-recurring in nature in a strictly accounting sense, the management regards those items as infrequent and not arising out of the ordinary course of business and finds it useful to utilize a non-GAAP measure in evaluating the performance of our underlying core business.
We also believe that adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provides a basis for more relevant comparisons to other companies in the industry and enables investors to evaluate our operating performance in a manner consistent with our internal basis of measurement and also presents our investors our operating results on the same basis as that used by our management. Management refers to adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share in making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our ability to invest in research and development and fund acquisitions and capital expenditures. In addition, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share facilitate managements internal comparisons to our historical operating results and comparisons to competitors operating results. Further, we rely on adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted net income per share information as primary measures to review and assess the operating performance of our company and our management team in connection with our executive compensation and bonus plans. Since most of our employees are not directly involved with decisions surrounding acquisitions or severance related activities and other items irrelevant to our core operations, we do not believe it is appropriate and fair to have their incentive compensation affected by these items. By adjusting those items not indicative of ongoing operating results, the non-GAAP financial measure could serve as an alternative useful measure to evaluate our
prospect for future performance because our investors are able to more conveniently predict the results of our operating activities on an on-going basis when excluding these less common items.
Investors should be aware that these non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations, including their variance from certain of the financial measurement principals underlying GAAP, should not be considered as a replacement for operating income, net income and earnings per share, respectively, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. For instance, we exclude the charges of the acquisition-related costs and the related amortization while we still retain the acquisition-related benefits and revenue in calculation of the non-GAAP adjusted operating income, net income and earnings per share. In addition, we exclude a portion of employee compensation, which is commonly considered integral to a companys operational performance. This supplemental non-GAAP information should not be construed as an inference that the Companys future results will be unaffected by similar adjustments to net earnings determined in accordance with GAAP.
