During the first quarter, Trimble repurchased approximately 0.5 million shares of its common stock for $14.2 million. Approximately $116 million remains under the current share repurchase authorization as of the end of the first quarter.

"We continued to demonstrate progression in the first quarter, with accelerating revenue growth and significant margin improvement," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer. "Our outlook for the remainder of the year anticipates continuing year-over-year improvement in both revenue and profitability."

For the second quarter of 2017 Trimble expects revenue to be between $625 million and $655 million with GAAP earnings per share of $0.16 to $0.22 and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.33 to $0.38. Non-GAAP guidance excludes the amortization of intangibles of $35 million related to previous acquisitions, anticipated acquisition costs of $3 million, the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation expense of $15 million, and $2 million in anticipated restructuring charges. GAAP guidance assumes a tax rate of 22 percent and non-GAAP guidance assumes a tax rate of 23 percent. Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share assume approximately 257 million shares outstanding.

To help our investors understand our past financial performance and our future results, as well as our performance relative to competitors, we supplement the financial results that we provide in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, with non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures can be used to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance, as well as our performance relative to competitors. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business, and to make operating decisions. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. Further, we believe some of our investors track our "core operating performance" as a means of evaluating our performance in the ordinary, ongoing, and customary course of our operations. Core operating performance excludes items that are non-cash, not expected to recur or not reflective of ongoing financial results. Management also believes that looking at our core operating performance provides a supplemental way to provide consistency in period to period comparisons.

The specific non-GAAP measures, which we use along with a reconciliation to the nearest comparable GAAP measures and the explanation for why these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations and why management chose to exclude selected items can be found at the end of this release. The method we use to produce non-GAAP results is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from the methods used by other companies. Our non-GAAP results are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
