Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On February 3, 2006, we issued a press release reporting our financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2005 and our 2006 Forecast (the Press Release). We also hosted a conference call and webcast on February 3, 2006 during which we made a presentation on our financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2005 and our 2006 Forecast (the Presentation). The Press Release and the Presentation are available on our website at www.ryder.com.
The Press Release and the Presentation include information regarding our (i) comparable earnings and comparable earnings per share from continuing operations excluding the gain from our headquarters complex sale and net tax benefits and (ii) earnings before restructuring and income taxes, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by SEC regulations. We believe that comparable earnings and comparable earnings per share from continuing operations provide useful information to investors because they exclude significant items that are unrelated to our ongoing business operations. We present earnings before restructuring and income taxes because we use this measure to evaluate the performance of our business segments and for informational purposes as such measure is often requested by our investors.
