Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements
Statements contained in this press release that are not historical fact may be forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements may relate to, among other things, the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 preliminary financial information, including both net sales and GAAP and non-GAAP diluted net income per common share. Such forward-looking statements do not constitute guarantees of future performance and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those anticipated, including completion of the Company's financial closing procedures and finalization of the Company's unaudited financial statements for its fiscal first quarter of 2023. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or suggested in any forward-looking statements are contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in such filings, particularly in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended June 30, 2022.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share discussed in this press release adds back stock-based compensation expenses, which is adjusted for the related tax effect. Management presents non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the Company's performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the Company's financial and operational performance. However, the non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, the reconciliation between the Company’s GAAP diluted net income per common share and non-GAAP diluted net income per common share first quarter of fiscal 2023 is stock-based compensation expense of $11.0 million less related tax effect of $3.2 million. The Company’s projections for GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share assume a tax rate of approximately 17.4% and 17.9%, respectively, and a fully diluted share count of 55.0 million shares for GAAP and fully diluted share count of 56.3 million shares for non-GAAP.
