Forward Looking Statements

A number of forward-looking statements are included in this press release. Forward-looking statements are any statements that are not historical facts. The words “anticipate,” “expect,” “project,” “will,” and similar expressions, among others, generally identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on the current plans and expectations of Knowles and are expressed in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis, but there can be no assurance that such plans or expectations will be achieved or accomplished. Because forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, Knowles’s actual results could differ materially from those projected, anticipated or implied in these statements. Factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated include the matters described under the sections entitled “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Knowles’ Form 10-K filed with the SEC. Knowles disclaims any duty to update any forward-looking statement, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Reporting

In addition to the GAAP results included in this press release, Knowles has presented non-GAAP operating profit, a non-GAAP financial measurement. Knowles uses non-GAAP measures as supplements to its GAAP results of operations in evaluating certain aspects of its business, and its Board of Directors and executive management team focus on non-GAAP items as key measures of Knowles’ performance for business planning purposes. These measures assist Knowles in comparing its performance between various reporting periods on a consistent basis, as these measures remove from operating results the impact of items that, in Knowles’ opinion, do not reflect its core operating performance. Knowles believes that its presentation of non-GAAP information is useful because it provides investors and securities analysts with the same information that Knowles uses internally for purposes of assessing its core operating performance.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
