13 NON - GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES The company uses certain non - GAAP financial measures, which are measures of its historical or future financial performance that are not calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, within the meaning of applicable SEC rules. Management believes that its presentation and use of certain non - GAAP financi al measures, including adjusted earnings, adjusted earnings per share, and free cash flow provide relevant and useful supplemental financial information, that is widely used by analysts and investors, as well as by manageme nt in assessing both consolidated and business unit performance. These non - GAAP measures are reconciled to the most directly comparab le GAAP measures and should be considered supplemental in nature and should not be considered in isolation or be construed as being more important than comparable GAAP me asures. Adjusted earnings relates to net earnings from continuing operations attributable to the company, exclusive of items manageme nt considers not representative of ongoing operations because such items are not reflective of the company’s principal business activity, which is glass container production. Adj ust ed earnings are divided by weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) to derive adjusted earnings per share. Management uses adjusted earnings, and adjusted earnings per sh are to evaluate its period - over - period operating performance because it believes these provide useful supplemental measures of the results of operations of its principal busi nes s activity by excluding items that are not reflective of such operations. Adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share may be useful to investors in evaluating the underlying operating performance of the company’s business as these measures eliminate items that are not reflective of its principal business activity. Further, free cash flow relates to cash provided by continuing operating activities less cash payments for property, plant an d e quipment. Management has historically used free cash flow to evaluate its period - over - period cash generation performance because it believes this has provided a useful supplemental measu re related to its principal business activity. Adjusted EBITDA relates to net earnings from continuing operations attributable to the company, less interest, taxes, depreciation and am ortization as well as items management considers not representative of ongoing operations because such items are not reflective of the company’s principal business activity, whic h i s glass container production. Free cash flow to adjusted EBITDA conversion may be useful to investors to assist in understanding the comparability of cash flows generated by the comp any ’s principal business activity. It should not be inferred that the entire free cash flow amount is available for discretionary expenditures, since the company has mandatory debt servi ce requirements and other non - discretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure. Management uses non - GAAP information principally for internal reporting, forecasting, budget ing and calculating compensation payments. The Company routinely posts important information on its website at www.o - i.com/investors.



14 RECONCILIATION FOR ADJUSTED EARNINGS The reconciliation below describes the items that management considers not representative of ongoing operations. Unaudited 2020 2019 2020 2019 (29)$ 32$ 249$ (397)$ Items impacting cost of goods sold: Acquisition-related fair value inventory adjustments 1 Items impacting other selling and administrative expense: Restructuring, asset impairment and other charges 2 Items impacting equity earnings (losses) : Restructuring, asset impairment and other charges 36 36 Items impacting other expense, net: Gain on sale of ANZ businesses 5 (275) Charge for asbestos-related costs 35 35 Charge for goodwill impairment 595 Restructuring, asset impairment and other charges 26 41 106 111 Strategic transaction and corporate modernization costs 1 31 8 31 Charge for deconsolidation of Paddock 14 Pension settlement charges 18 13 26 26 Gain on sale of equity investment (107) (107) Items impacting interest expense: Charges for note repurchase premiums and write-off of finance fees 39 44 65 Items impacting income tax: Net benefit for income tax on items above 7 (7) (13) (13) Tax charge recorded for certain tax adjustments 3 3 Net impact of noncontrolling interests on items above (1) (1) (1) (1) Total adjusting items (non-GAAP) 92$ 47$ (55)$ 748$ Adjusted earnings (non-GAAP) 63$ 79$ 194$ 351$ Diluted average shares (thousands) 157,274 156,907 158,785 155,250 Earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations (diluted) (0.18)$ 0.20$ 1.57$ (2.56)$ Adjusted earnings per share (non-GAAP) (a) 0.40$ 0.50$ 1.22$ 2.24$ (a) For purposes of computing adjusted earnings per share, the diluted average shares (in thousands) are 156,651 for the year ended Dec. 31, 2019. For purposes of computing adjusted earnings per share, the diluted average shares (in thousands) are 159,824 for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2020. Earnings (loss) from continuing operations attributable to the Company Items impacting net earnings attributable to noncontrolling interests: Year ended December 31 The Company is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of its forward-looking non-GAAP measure, adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share, for the quarter ending March 31, 2021 or year ending December 31, 2021, to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, earnings from continuing operations attributable to the Company, because management cannot reliably predict all of the necessary components of this GAAP financial measure without unreasonable efforts. Earnings from continuing operations attributable to the Company includes several significant items, such as restructuring charges, asset impairment charges, charges for the write-off of finance fees, and the income tax effect on such items. The decisions and events that typically lead to the recognition of these and other similar items are complex and inherently unpredictable, and the amount recognized for each item can vary significantly. Accordingly, the Company is unable to provide a reconciliation of adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share to earnings from continuing operations attributable to the Company or address the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could be material to the Company's future financial results.
