Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On April 18, 2019, Chart Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a news release announcing the Company’s financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019, as well as supplemental information for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019. A copy of the news release is furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1, and a copy of the supplemental information is furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.2. All information in the news release and the supplemental information is furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” with the Securities and Exchange Commission for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act, or otherwise be subject to the liability of that Section, and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, except to the extent the Company specifically incorporated it by reference.
The news release and supplemental information furnished with this Current Report on Form 8-K include measures that exclude certain items required to be presented under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). These measures are not recognized under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and are referred to as “non-GAAP financial measures” in Regulation G under the Exchange Act. The Company believes these measures are of interest to investors and facilitate useful period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s financial results, and this information is used by the Company in evaluating internal performance. The non-GAAP measures are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measure in tables at the end of the news release, except for the adjusted earnings per share amount included in the full year outlook, which the Company is not able to reconcile because certain items have not yet occurred or are out of the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
