Impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017

On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which has wide-ranging impacts on EFI including, but not limited to, a Deemed Repatriation Transition Tax and the revaluation of current U.S. deferred tax assets and liabilities, was enacted. We recorded a $27.3 million charge in the fourth quarter of 2017 as a provisional estimate related to the aforementioned items. In the first quarter of 2018, we also recorded an additional $1.2 million charge related to the state tax impact associated with the Deemed Repatriation Transition Tax. In the third quarter of 2018, we recorded a benefit of $0.7 million, consisting of an additional U.S. tax charge of $0.4 million and a reduction of the anticipated state tax charge of $1.1 million. The SEC staff issued Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) 118, which allows companies to record a provisional estimate of the income tax effects in the quarter in which it can make reasonable estimates of the effects of the new law. While we have calculated a reasonable estimate of the impact of the U.S. tax rate reduction and the amount of the Deemed Repatriation Transition Tax, we are still gathering additional information to refine and finalize our calculation of the impacts of the new tax law on our U.S. deferred tax assets and liabilities, the Deemed Repatriation Transition Tax, and other provisions associated with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. As we obtain additional information, we may record material adjustments in the fourth quarter of 2018, and will finalize the income tax effects in the fourth quarter of 2018 when our analysis is complete.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income, operating income, and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income, GAAP operating income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, and gains. A reconciliation of the adjustments to GAAP results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017 is provided below. In addition, an explanation of how management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, the substance behind management's decision to use this non-GAAP financial information, the material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, the manner in which management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons management believes that this non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to investors is included under "About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments" after the tables below.

Our non-GAAP measures, including ex-currency are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, revenue, gross profit, operating expenses, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent, or non-recurring.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains, and losses.

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding certain costs, expenses, gains, and significant items that we believe are important to understanding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our Board of Directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending on our activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of our operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We compute non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share by adjusting GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income, and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring and other expenses, acquisition-related transaction costs, costs to integrate such acquisitions into our business, incremental cost of revenue due to the fair value adjustment to inventories acquired in business acquisitions, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration including the related foreign exchange fluctuation impact, revenue recognition and accounting review costs, litigation settlements and non-cash interest expense related to our 0.75% convertible senior notes (“Notes”). We use a constant non-GAAP tax rate of 19%, which we believe reflects the long-term average tax rate based on our international structure and geographic distribution of revenue and profit.

Ex-Currency. To better understand trends in our business, we believe it is helpful to adjust our statement of operations to exclude the impact of year-over-year changes in the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars. This is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated by adjusting revenue, gross profit, and operating expenses by using historical exchange rates in effect during the comparable prior year period and removing the balance sheet currency re-measurement impact from interest income and other income, net of expenses, including removal of any hedging gains and losses. We refer to these adjustments as “ex-currency”. Management believes the ex-currency measures provide investors with an additional perspective on year-over-year financial trends and enables investors to analyze our operating results in the same way management does. The year-over-year currency impact can be determined as the difference between year-over-year actual growth rates and year-over-year ex-currency growth rates.

These excluded items are described below:

  • Cost of revenue related to fair value adjustment of the Free Flow Print Server business (“FFPS”). Inventory acquired in an acquisition must be recorded at fair value rather than historical cost in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. The fair value of FFPS inventory reflects the manufacturing cost plus a portion of the expected gross profit. In 2017, we adjusted our cost of revenue to reflect the expected gross profit that was included in the inventory valuation under ASC 805. We believe this adjustment is useful to investors to understand the gross profit trends of our ongoing business.
     
  • Amortization of intangible assets. Intangible assets acquired to date are being amortized on a straight-line basis.
     
  • Stock-based compensation expense recognized in accordance with ASC 718, Stock Compensation.
     
  • Restructuring and other consists of:

      •  Restructuring charges incurred as we consolidate the number and size of our facilities and reduce the size of our workforce.

      •  Integration-related expenses were $0.9 and $3.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, and $0.2 and $1.0 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively. We have acquired 18 businesses in the last 5 years, which have required significant information technology investment to integrate them into our business.
  • Acquisition-related transaction costs associated with businesses acquired during the periods reported and anticipated transactions of $0.2 and $0.9 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively, and $0.6 and $1.8 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively.
     
  • Changes in fair value of contingent consideration. Our management determined that we should analyze the total return provided by the investment when evaluating operating results of an acquired entity. The total return consists of operating profit generated from the acquired entity compared to the purchase price paid, including the final amounts paid for contingent consideration without considering any post-acquisition adjustments related to changes in the fair value of the contingent consideration. Because our management believes the final purchase price paid for the acquisition reflects the accounting value assigned to both contingent consideration and to the intangible assets, we exclude the GAAP impact of any adjustments to the fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration from the operating results of an acquisition in subsequent periods, including the related foreign exchange fluctuation impact. We believe this approach is useful in understanding the long-term return provided by our acquisitions and that investors benefit from a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of this adjustment.
     
  • Non-cash interest expense on our Notes. Our Notes may be settled in cash on conversion. We are required to separately account for the liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the Notes in a manner that reflects our non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes, we are required to amortize a debt discount equal to the fair value of the conversion option as interest expense on our $345 million of 0.75% convertible senior notes that were issued in a private placement in September 2014 over the term of the Notes.
     
  • Revenue recognition accounting review costs and litigation and other settlements. As described in “Item 9A, Controls and Procedures” of our annual report on Form 10-K, for the year ended December 31, 2017, as amended, our management concluded that we had material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2017 related to revenue recognition practices and the valuation of certain textile digital inkjet printer inventories. Therefore, we did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting or effective disclosure controls and procedures, both of which are requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as of that date. The review of our revenue recognition practices has required that we expend significant management time and incur significant accounting, legal, and other expenses (credits) of $(0.1) and $1.7 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, respectively. We expect to incur additional costs in future periods.
     
  • Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments. We use a constant non-GAAP tax rate of 19%, which we believe reflects the long-term average tax rate based on our international structure and geographic distribution of revenue and profit. The long-term average tax rate is calculated in accordance with the principles of ASC 740, Income Taxes, to estimate the non-GAAP income tax provision in each jurisdiction in which we operate after excluding the tax effect of the non-GAAP items described above, and $(0.7), $1.2 and $27.5 million of tax charges (benefits) recognized in Q3 18, Q1 18, and Q4 17, respectively, as a result of the 2017 Tax Act, which was enacted on December 22, 2017.
