Non-GAAP Information: The guidance presented in this release, “Adjusted earnings per share,” is a non-GAAP financial measure and is calculated by the company in a manner consistent with the presentation of Adjusted earnings per share included in its May 3, 2018 press release announcing the results of operations for the first quarter of 2018. Adjusted earnings per share excludes items, which would be included in our financial measures presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), that we do not consider indicative of our on-going performance. These items include, but are not limited to, acquisition costs, costs associated with dispositions, the results of our South African projects, and potential non-cash income or expense items associated with changes in market interest rates and actuarial or other data related to our pension and postretirement plans, as the ultimate aggregate amounts associated with these items are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Because of the forward-looking nature of the estimated range of Adjusted earnings per share, it is impractical to present a quantitative reconciliation of such measure to a comparable GAAP measure, and accordingly no such GAAP measure is being presented.

Certain statements in this press release, including the Adjusted earnings per share guidance, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and are subject to the safe harbor created thereby. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from future express or implied results. Particular risks facing SPX include risks relating to market specific cycles and weather related fluctuations; economic, business, and other risks stemming from changes in the economy; legal and regulatory risks; cost of raw materials; pricing pressures; our reliance on U.S. revenues and international operations; its 2015 spin-off transaction; the effectiveness, success, and timing of restructuring plans; its ability to manage changes and measure and estimate the expected revenue and cost associated with our power projects in South Africa; pension funding requirements; liabilities retained in connection with dispositions; and integration of acquisitions and achievement of anticipated synergies. More information regarding such risks can be found in SPX’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Although the company believes that the expectations reflected in its forward-looking statements are reasonable, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. In addition, estimates of future operating results are based on the company’s current complement of businesses, which is subject to change.

Statements in this press release speak only as of the date of this press release, and SPX disclaims any responsibility to update or revise such statements.
