Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On April 22, 2014, Manhattan Associates, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release providing the results for its financial performance for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014. 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.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures in the Press Release
The press release includes, as additional information regarding our operating results, our adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, which excludes the impact of equity-based compensation and acquisition-related costs and the amortization thereofall net of income tax effects. We have developed our internal reporting, compensation and planning systems using these measures.
These various measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP) and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP financial 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 GAAP.
Non-GAAP measures used in the press release exclude the impact of the items described above for the following reasons:
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. We also believe that adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provide a basis for more relevant comparisons to other companies in the industry, enable investors to evaluate our operating performance in a manner consistent with our internal basis of measurement and also present 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 we believe 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 and other items that are not central to our core operations, we do not believe it is appropriate or fair to have their incentive compensation affected by these items.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, hereunto duly authorized.
