Effects of Argentina Hyperinflationary Accounting on Q4 and Full Year 2023 Results

"In a nutshell, due to the abrupt devaluation of the Argentine peso in late December, accounting rules required us to record a non-cash negative impact on our 4Q23 and full year 2023 earnings. But excluding this extraordinary accounting effect, our core business is solid with good prospects. We present this information proactively and transparently so investors understand this is an isolated event, not indicative of operating issues. We remain committed to delivering value for our shareholders with a strong and growing business."
