Results of Operations and Financial Condition

Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 28, 2014, Roper Industries, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release containing information about the Company's results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1.

In the press release, the Company uses several non-GAAP financial measures:
non-GAAP Revenue, non-GAAP Operating Margin, non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share, EBITDA and Free Cash Flow.
In the first quarter of 2013, business combination accounting rules required Roper to account for the fair value of deferred revenue assumed in connection with the Sunquest Information Systems, Inc. ("Sunquest") acquisition. The fair value is based on the assumed cost of having a third-party provide the relevant support services rather than the contracted amount under the contracts. Because the fair value is less than the contracted amount, Roper's GAAP revenues for the one year period subsequent to the acquisition did not reflect the full amount of revenue that would have otherwise been recorded by Sunquest had they remained an independent company. The non-GAAP Revenue measure is intended to reflect the full amount that Sunquest would have recognized as revenue, absent the fair value adjustment. The non-GAAP Operating Margin reflects this fair value adjustment as well as the exclusion of expenses related to the Sunquest acquisition. The non-GAAP Diluted Earnings per Share also excludes a debt extinguishment charge incurred in refinancing the existing credit facility, which is recorded as other expense. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of its business giving effect to the Sunquest transaction.
EBITDA as shown in the press release is defined as net earnings plus (a) interest expense, (b) income taxes and (c) depreciation and amortization. The Company believes EBITDA is an important indicator of operational performance of the Company's business because it provides a link between profitability and operating cash flow. EBITDA as calculated by the Company is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. In addition, EBITDA: (a) does not represent net income or cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP; (b) is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund the Company's cash flow needs; and (c) should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or the Company's other financial information determined under GAAP. The Company believes that the line on the Company's consolidated statement of operations entitled net earnings is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to EBITDA.
Free Cash Flow is defined as "Cash Provided by Operating Activities" ("Operating Cash Flow") as stated in Roper's Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, reduced by capital expenditures. The Company believes that Free Cash Flow is useful to investors as a basis for comparing its performance with other companies. Roper's measure of Free Cash Flow may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.

(d) Exhibits.

99.1 Press Release of the Company dated March 31, 2014.
