Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
By press release dated February 17, 2011, the Company announced its preliminary financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The full text of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The information in this Form 8-K and the Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act) or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by special reference in such filing.
In the press release and accompanying supplemental information, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measure: adjusted earnings per share (EPS). Adjusted EPS (defined as earnings per common share, excluding special, impairment, and Leslie asbestos and bankruptcy charges, net of tax) is provided because management believes this measurement is useful for investors and financial institutions to analyze and compare companies on the basis of operating performance. Adjusted EPS is not a measurement for financial performance under GAAP and should not be construed as a substitute for earnings per share. Adjusted EPS, as we have calculated here, may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of adjusted EPS to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is provided in the reconciliation table within the body of the press release.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
