Financial Guidance Update
For the year ended December 31, 2019 (FY 2019), Humana’s management expects to reaffirm its Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) guidance range of approximately $16.60 to $17.10 in diluted earnings per common share (EPS), or approximately $17.00 to $17.50 in adjusted earnings per common share (Adjusted EPS). This guidance is consistent with the guidance reaffirmed in Humana’s Form 8-K filing dated February 28, 2019.
Adjusted EPS should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP EPS. A reconciliation of GAAP EPS to Adjusted EPS follows:
|Diluted earnings per common share||FY 2019 Guidance|
|GAAP||~$16.60 to $17.10|
|Amortization of identifiable intangibles||0.40|
|Adjusted (non-GAAP) – FY 2019 projected||~$17.00 to $17.50|
The company has included Adjusted EPS in this release, a financial measure that is not in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that this measure, when presented in conjunction with the comparable measure of GAAP EPS, is useful to both management and its investors in analyzing the company's ongoing business and operating performance. Consequently, management uses Adjusted EPS as an indicator of the company's business performance, as well as for operational planning and decision making purposes.
