Non-GAAP Financial Measures (Sales, Gross Profit and Income From Operations in Constant Dollars)
To supplement its financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), Mannatech discloses operating results that have been adjusted to exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, including changes in: Net Sales, Gross Profit, and Income from Operations. It refers to these adjusted financial measures as constant dollar items, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The company believes these measures provide investors an additional perspective on trends. To exclude the impact of changes due to the translation of foreign currencies into U.S. dollars, it calculates current year results and prior year results at a constant exchange rate, which is the prior year’s rate. Currency impact is determined as the difference between actual growth rates and constant currency growth rates.
