Non-GAAP Financial Measure
This press release includes a forecast of Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, which is not a financial measure calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company is unable to provide a quantitative reconciliation of this forward-looking Non-GAAP measure to the equivalent forward-looking GAAP measure without unreasonable effort, because the company does not forecast GAAP earnings per share and cannot reliably forecast LIFO inventory-related adjustments, certain litigation loss and gain contingencies, restructuring, impairment and related charges, and other adjustments, which are difficult to predict and estimate. These items are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, many of which are beyond the company’s control, and as such, any associated estimate and its impact on GAAP performance could vary materially. Refer to investor.mckesson.com and the company’s slide presentation noted above for definitions and explanations of the Company’s Non-GAAP financial measures.
This press release contains a forecast of Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share, which is a forward-looking statement within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
