VONTIER CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this earnings release also references “adjusted operating profit,” “adjusting operating profit margin,” “segment operating profit,” and “segment operating profit margin,” which are non-GAAP financial measures. We present these measures because we believe they assist investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Management believes these measures are helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure and allocation and investments. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the GAAP financial measures, but should instead be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures used by Vontier in this release may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Adjusted operating profit refers to operating profit calculated in accordance with GAAP, but excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, restructuring costs and other termination costs and severance benefits ("Restructuring costs"), transaction- and deal-related costs, amortization of acquisition-related inventory fair value step-up, other charges which represent charges incurred that are not part of our core operating results ("Other charges"), the impact of certain divested businesses, or product lines or businesses to be abandoned but not considered discontinued operations (“Divestiture related adjustments”), loss on sale of property, asset impairments, one-time costs related to the separation and normalization and other adjustments which represent adjustments for standalone public company costs. Adjusted operating profit margin refers to adjusted operating profit divided by GAAP sales.

Segment operating profit is used by Vontier’s management in determining how to allocate resources and assess performance. Segment operating profit represents total segment sales less operating costs attributable to the segment, which does not include unallocated corporate costs and other operating costs not allocated to the reportable segments as part of management’s assessment of reportable segment operating performance, including stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets and other costs shown in the reconciliation to GAAP operating profit below. As part of management’s assessment of the Repair Solutions segment, a capital charge based on the segment’s financing receivables portfolio is allocated from Corporate. Segment operating profit margin refers to segment operating profit divided by GAAP sales.
