We are a global manufacturer organized and manage our business along our three segments (Global OE Clean Air, Global OE Ride Performance and Global Aftermarket). The reporting segments are aligned with key growth strategies. Costs related to other business activities, primarily corporate headquarter functions, are disclosed separately from the three operating segments as "Other." We evaluate segment performance based primarily on earnings before interest expense, income taxes, and noncontrolling interests. Products are transferred between segments and geographic areas on a basis intended to reflect as nearly as possible the “market value” of the products.

Adjustments similar to the ones reflected above have been recorded in earlier periods, and similar types of adjustments can reasonably be expected to be recorded in future periods. Using only the non-GAAP earnings measures to analyze earnings would have material limitations because its calculation is based on the subjective determinations of management regarding the nature and classification of events and circumstances that investors may find material. Management compensates for these limitations by utilizing both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings measures reflected above to understand and analyze the results of the business. The company believes investors find the non-GAAP information helpful in understanding the ongoing performance of operations separate from items that may have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on the company's financial results in any particular period.

    Amazon Tops in Product Search, but Can It Keep Growing?

    Google dominates the search market with a better than 90% share, but when it comes to actually buying something, more often than not, people begin their search on Amazon.com's (NASDAQ: AMZN) website. While Amazon might be on top, there are signs that others in the space are also making headway. Considering Amazon's website is focused on selling stuff, it shouldn't be too surprising that it's the leader.

    Berkshire Is Undervalued, Says JPMorgan

    Berkshire Hathaway Inc.'s ( BRK.B) Class B shares are cheap if you apply the same metrics that its CEO Warren Buffett does to value companies, according to JPMorgan. In a research note, reported on by CNBC, analyst Sarah DeWitt said Berkshire, a company that investors have historically struggled to value properly because of its many moving parts, suddenly appears to be attractively priced when factoring in all the profits made by the stocks held in its $200 billion equity portfolio into its earnings. “Look-through earnings” take into account current period earnings that show up in financial statements, together with other sources of earnings expected in the long run. This method is used by Buffett as a way to appreciate that companies sometimes retain earnings after paying dividends and later invest them at a higher rate of return.

    Facebook under fire as US officials back removal of Zuckerberg as chairman

    Mark Zuckerberg came under fresh pressure after four US officials called for a boardroom shakeup at Facebook. Three state treasurers and a top official from New York have joined a shareholders’ motion to install an independent chairman at Facebook, claiming the move would improve governance and accountability. In June, Boston-based Trillium Asset Management, which holds $11m in Facebook shares, launched an effort to split the role of chairman and chief executive at Facebook following scandals over the hacking of personal data from millions of users and claims of hate speech and election-rigging.
