- Non-GAAP recurring revenue
- Non-GAAP operating income
- Non-GAAP operating margin

Trimble uses Non-GAAP Recurring Revenue as a component of its performance measure Annualized Recurring Revenue in order to provide investors with a supplementary indicator of the value of the Company's current recurring revenue contracts. For the second quarter of 2019, recurring revenue on a GAAP basis was $272.4 million, and non-GAAP recurring revenue was $273.4 million, which excluded $1.0 million related to the elimination of the deferred revenue adjustment in connection with acquisitions.
Segment data reflects the results of Trimble's reportable segments under its management reporting system. Segment revenue and operating income are consistent with the respective non-GAAP measures discussed below and in the attached supplemental schedules. Investors are encouraged to review the specific non-GAAP measures, which Trimble uses along with a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measures and the explanation for why these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the financial condition and results of operations and why management chose to exclude selected items, which can be found at the end of this press release.

Annualized Recurring Revenue
In addition to providing financial measures, Trimble provides an Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) performance measure. Annualized Recurring Revenue is calculated by dividing Non-GAAP Recurring Revenue for the current quarter by the number of days in the quarter, and multiplying by 365. Annualized Recurring Revenue should be viewed independently of revenue and deferred revenue as it is a performance measure and is not intended to be combined with or to replace either of those items.
