Free Cash Flow

Our definition of free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, takes into consideration capital investments required to maintain the operations of our businesses and execute our strategy. We believe free cash flow provides useful information to investors regarding our ability to generate cash from business operations that is available for acquisitions and other investments, service of debt principal, dividends and share repurchases and meet its working capital requirements. Our definition of free cash flow may be different from definitions used by other companies. We also use free cash flow, as defined, as one measure to monitor and evaluate performance.

The following is a reconciliation of forecast net cash provided from operating activities to the Company’s forecasted cash flow for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2016:

Forecasted range (in millions) F2016
Net Cash provided from Operating Activities, as adjusted $605 - 625
