Boston Scientific Resolves Outstanding Litigation Matter, Finalizes Goodwill Impairment Charge
Date:2/26/2009

from or as a replacement for GAAP financial measures. Some of the limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures are:

  • Purchased research and development reflects economic costs to the Company and are not reflected in non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share.

  • Items such as restructuring-related expenses and discrete tax items that are excluded from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share can have a material impact on cash flows and GAAP net income and net income per diluted share.

  • Items such as amortization expense and goodwill and intangible asset impairment charges, though not directly affecting Boston Scientific's cash flow position, represent a reduction in value of intangible assets. The expense associated with this reduction in value is not included in Boston Scientific's non-GAAP net income or non-GAAP net income per diluted share and therefore these measures do not reflect the full economic effect of the reduction in value of those intangible assets.

  • Other companies may calculate non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share differently than Boston Scientific does, limiting the usefulness of these measures for comparative purposes.

Compensation for Limitations Associated with Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Boston Scientific compensates for the limitations on its non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon its GAAP results to gain a complete picture of the Company's performance. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the Company, which is only a subset, albeit a critical one, of the Company's performance.
