a Cargill reports financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Effective in fiscal 2016, the company also reports adjusted operating earnings, a non-GAAP financial measure that provides additional insight into the underlying financial performance of the company’s ongoing operations. In calculating adjusted operating earnings, Cargill excludes the following seven items: timing differences related to inventory, derivatives and hedging; last-in-first-out (LIFO) inventory adjustments; amortization of intangible assets; gains and losses on changes in investment structure; asset impairment and restructuring charges; gains and losses on sales of businesses and other long-term assets; and earnings attributable to non-controlling interests of Cargll's asset management business.
