Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Through the fiscal year ending December 31, 2006, E.ON prepared its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"), but has adopted International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as its primary set of accounting principles as of January 1, 2007. Unless otherwise indicated, the financial data for periods beginning after January 1, 2007 has been prepared in accordance with IFRS, while that for prior periods has been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. A document may contain references to certain financial measures (including forward-looking measures) that are not calculated in accordance with either IFRS or U.S. GAAP and are therefore considered "Non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the U.S. federal securities laws. Management believes that the Non-GAAP financial measures used by E.ON, when considered in conjunction with (but not in lieu of) other measures that are computed in accordance with IFRS or U.S. GAAP, enhance an understanding of E.ON's results of operations. A number of these Non-GAAP financial measures are also commonly used by securities analysts, credit rating agencies and investors to evaluate and compare the periodic and future operating performance and value of E.ON and other companies with which E.ON competes. These Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation as a measure of E.ON's profitability or liquidity, and should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, net income, cash provided by operating activities and the other income or cash flow data prepared in accordance with IFRS or U.S. GAAP. In particular, there are material limitations associated with our use of Non-GAAP financial measures, including the limitations inherent in our determination of each of the relevant adjustments. The Non-GAAP financial measures used by E.ON may differ from, and not be comparable to, similarly-titled measures used by other companies.
