On July 23, 2008, we issued a press release reporting our financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 (the Press Release). We also hosted a conference call and webcast on July 23, 2008 during which we made a presentation on our financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 (the Presentation). The Press Release and the Presentation are available on our website at www.ryder.com.
The Press Release and Presentation include information regarding comparable net earnings, comparable earnings per share and comparable earnings per share forecast, each excluding Brazil charges, which are non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC regulations. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors, and allow for better year-over-year comparison, as the measures exclude from our GAAP net earnings, earnings per share and earnings per share forecast, the impact of charges in the second quarter for prior years adjustments associated with our Brazilian Supply Chain Solutions operation. Additional information regarding non-GAAP financial measures can be found in the Press Release, the Presentation and our reports filed with the SEC.
The information in this Report, including Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, is being furnished pursuant to Item 2.02 of Form 8-K and General Instruction B.2 thereunder and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, except as expressly set forth by specific reference to such filing.
