Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this earnings release, we supplement our reporting of information determined in accordance with GAAP, such as revenue, operating income, operating margin, income from continuing operations, earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities, with "adjusted revenue," "internal revenue growth," "adjusted operating income," "adjusted operating margin," "adjusted income from continuing operations," "adjusted earnings per share" and "free cash flow." Management believes that adjustments for certain non-cash or other items and the exclusion of certain pass-through revenue and expenses enhance our shareholders’ ability to evaluate our performance because such items do not reflect how we manage our operations. Therefore, we exclude these items from GAAP revenue, operating income, operating margin, income from continuing operations, earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities to calculate these non-GAAP measures.

Examples of non-cash or other items may include, but are not limited to, non-cash deferred revenue adjustments arising from acquisitions, non-cash intangible asset amortization expense associated with acquisitions, non-cash impairment charges, gains or losses from unconsolidated affiliates, severance costs, charges associated with early debt extinguishment, merger and integration costs related to acquisitions, and certain costs associated with the achievement of our operational effectiveness objectives. We exclude these items to more clearly focus on the factors we believe are pertinent to the management of our operations, and we use this information to allocate resources to our various businesses.

Free cash flow and internal revenue growth are non-GAAP financial measures and are described on page 10. We believe free cash flow is useful to measure the funds generated in a given period that are available for strategic capital decisions. We believe internal revenue growth is useful because it presents revenue growth excluding the impact of postage reimbursements in our Output Solutions business, acquisitions and dispositions, and including deferred revenue purchase accounting adjustments. We believe this supplemental information enhances our shareholders’ ability to evaluate and understand our core business performance.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, revenue, operating income, operating margin, income from continuing operations, earnings per share and net cash provided by operating activities or any other amount determined in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures reflect management’s judgment of particular items and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(1)                                         In May 2015, the company raised $1.75 billion of proceeds in a
                                            public offering of senior notes with a weighted average interest
                                            rate and term of 3.3% and 7.6 years, respectively. The company used
                                            a portion of the proceeds to redeem its $600 million 3.125% senior
                                            notes due in 2016 and $500 million 6.8% senior notes due in 2017,
                                            which resulted in a pre-tax charge of $92 million ($0.25 per share
                                            after-tax) related to the make-whole payments on the early
                                            retirement and other costs associated with the transaction,

(1)   Internal revenue growth is measured as the increase in adjusted
                         revenue (see page 7) for the current period excluding acquired
                         revenue, divided by adjusted revenue from the prior year period
                         excluding revenue attributable to dispositions. There was no
                         acquired revenue in the fourth quarter or for the full year of 2015.
                         Revenue in the comparable prior year periods attributable to
                         dispositions was $1 million and $2 million, respectively (all in the
                         Financial segment).
