The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference into this item. Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits. (d) Exhibits. The following is being furnished as an exhibit to this report: Exhibit Number Exhibit Title or Description Exhibit 99.1 Press Release of Cameron International Corporation , dated January 30, 2014 - Cameron Fourth Quarter Earnings. Exhibit 99.1 to this report contains "non-GAAP financial measures" as defined in Item 10 of Regulation S-K of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The non-GAAP financial measures reflect earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expense and other costs ("EBITDA") and adjusted EPS. A reconciliation of EBITDA and adjusted EPS to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States ("GAAP") is included as an attachment to the press release. The Company believes the presentation of EBITDA and adjusted EPS are useful to the Company's investors because (i) EBITDA is an appropriate measure of evaluating the Company's operating performance and liquidity that reflects the resources available for strategic opportunities including, among others, investing in the business, strengthening the balance sheet, repurchasing the Company's securities and making strategic acquisitions and (ii) adjusted EPS is useful in analyzing the company's on-going earnings potential and understanding certain significant items impacting the comparability of our results. In addition, EBITDA and adjusted EPS are widely used benchmarks in the investment community. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
