In addition, the Supplemental Unaudited Combined Financial Information does not purport to indicate the results that actually would have been obtained had the L3 and Harris businesses been operated together on the basis of the new segment structure during the periods presented, or which may be realized in the future.
Amounts Adjusted for Certain Non-Recurring Items - The Supplemental Unaudited Combined Financial Information includes amounts adjusted for certain non-recurring items, including revenue, net income, net income margin, income from continuing operations and income from continuing operations per diluted common share, in each case as adjusted to exclude merger-related deal and integration costs and other non-recurring items previously reported by L3 or Harris, as applicable, for the prior periods as set forth in Tables 8 to 10 and the related notes. Such amounts should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, revenue, net income, net income margin, income from continuing operations and income from continuing operations per diluted common share and other financial measures on an unadjusted basis. Tables 8 to 10 and the related notes provide a reconciliation of adjusted amounts with the most directly comparable unadjusted amount. L3Harris management believes that these adjusted amounts, when considered together with the unadjusted amounts, provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. L3Harris management also believes that these adjusted amounts enhance the ability of investors to analyze trends in L3Harris’ business and to understand L3Harris’ performance. In addition, L3Harris may utilize adjusted amounts as guides in forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning processes and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Adjusted amounts should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, unadjusted amounts.
