Restructuring and Repositioning Expenses
Restructuring expenses were $0.1 million for the second quarter of 2016. Repositioning expenses associated with the separation from W.R. Grace & Co. were $4.7 million for second quarter of 2016, consisting primarily of professional services and new employee transition costs.

Interest Expense
Prior to the February 3, 2016 separation GCP raised $800.0 million of debt. This resulted in net interest expense of $17.7 million for the second quarter of 2016 compared with $0.8 million for the prior year quarter.

Income Taxes
The effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was 30.7% compared to the effective tax rate of 67.3% for the year ended December 31, 2015. The primary difference in the rate relates to a 2015 nondeductible Venezuela charge and a 2015 repatriation of foreign earnings charge, increasing the 2015 effective tax rate by 19.7% and 15.9%, respectively.

Full Year 2016 Outlook
Given the solid start to the year, the Company is reaffirming its previously communicated guidance for full year 2016.

Analysis of Operations

The Company has set forth in the table below GCP's key operating statistics with percentage changes for the second quarter and six months compared with the corresponding prior-year periods. In the table, the Company presents financial information in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as certain non-GAAP financial measures, which it describes below in further detail. GCP believes that the non-GAAP financial information supplements its discussions about the performance of its businesses, improves period-to-period comparability and provides insight to the information that management uses to evaluate the performance of its businesses. Management uses non-GAAP measures in financial and operational decision-making processes, for internal reporting, and as part of its forecasting and budgeting processes, as these measures provide additional transparency to GCP's core operations.

In the table, the Company has provided reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered substitutes for financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and the financial results that the Company calculates and presents in the table in accordance with U.S. GAAP, as well as the corresponding reconciliations from those results, should be carefully evaluated.

Constant currency means current period revenue in local currency translated using prior period exchange rates. GCP uses constant currency in assessing trends in sales excluding the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.

Net Sales excluding Venezuela; Net Sales, Constant Currency excluding Venezuela; Adjusted EBIT excluding Venezuela; Adjusted EBIT Margin excluding Venezuela; and Adjusted Gross Margin excluding Venezuela mean GCP’s combined results or respective segment results excluding the financial results of its Venezuela operations. These are non-GAAP measures and should be reviewed in conjunction with the related GAAP measures. GCP uses these non-GAAP measures to assess its operating results independent of the impacts of extreme hyperinflation and geopolitical factors. Management believes that providing these metrics may allow investors to better analyze and compare GCP’s results of operations with peer companies whose operations may not be impacted by the economic challenges facing Venezuela.

Adjusted EBIT means net income attributable to GCP shareholders adjusted for interest income and expense, income taxes, restructuring and repositioning expenses and asset impairments, pension costs other than service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets, and amortization of prior service costs/credits; income and expense items related to certain product lines and investments; gains and losses on sales of businesses, product lines, and certain other investments; and certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends. Adjusted EBIT Margin means Adjusted EBIT divided by net sales. GCP uses Adjusted EBIT to assess and measure its operating performance and in determining performance-based compensation. GCP uses Adjusted EBIT as a performance measure because it provides improved period-to-period comparability for management's decision-making and for compensation purposes and because it better measures the ongoing earnings results of the Company's strategic and operating decisions.

Adjusted EBITDA means Adjusted EBIT adjusted for depreciation and amortization. GCP uses Adjusted EBITDA as a performance measure in making significant business decisions.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share ("EPS") means Diluted EPS adjusted for costs related to restructuring and repositioning expenses and asset impairments, pension costs other than service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets, and amortization of prior service costs/credits, product lines, and certain other investments, gains and losses on sales of businesses, product lines, and certain other investments, certain other items that are not representative of underlying trends, and certain discrete tax items. GCP uses Adjusted EPS as a performance measure to review its diluted earnings per share results on a consistent basis.

Adjusted Gross Profit means gross profit adjusted for pension-related costs included in cost of goods sold. Adjusted Gross Margin means Adjusted Gross Profit divided by net sales. Management uses this performance measure to understand trends and changes and to make business decisions regarding core operations.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow means net cash provided by or used for operating activities minus capital expenditures plus cash paid for restructuring and repositioning, taxes paid for repositioning, capital expenditures related to repositioning, accelerated payments under defined benefit pension arrangements, and expenditures for legacy items. GCP uses Adjusted Free Cash Flow as a liquidity measure to evaluate its ability to generate cash to support its ongoing business operations, to invest in its businesses, to provide a return of capital to shareholders, and to determine payments of performance-based compensation.

Adjusted EBIT Return On Invested Capital means Adjusted EBIT (on a trailing four quarters basis) divided by the sum of net working capital, properties and equipment and certain other assets and liabilities. Management uses Adjusted EBIT Return On Invested Capital as a performance measure to review investments and capital allocation decisions.

Adjusted EBIT, Adjusted EBIT excluding Venezuela, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Free Cash Flow, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted Gross Margin excluding Venezuela, Adjusted EBIT Margin, and Adjusted EBIT Margin excluding Venezuela do not purport to represent income or liquidity measures as defined under United States generally accepted accounting principles, and should not be considered as alternatives to such measures as an indicator of GCP's performance. These measures are provided to distinguish the operating results of GCP's current business.

Adjusted EBIT has material limitations as an operating performance measure because it excludes costs related to income and expenses from restructuring and repositioning activities, which historically has been a material component of our net income. Adjusted EBITDA also has material limitations as an operating performance measure because it excludes the impact of depreciation and amortization expense. GCP's business is substantially dependent on the successful deployment of capital, and depreciation and amortization expense is a necessary element of its costs. GCP compensates for the limitations of these measurements by using these indicators together with net income as measured under GAAP to present a complete analysis of its results of operations. Adjusted EBIT and Adjusted EBITDA should be evaluated together with net income measured under GAAP for a complete understanding of GCP's results of operations.

The Company does not provide GAAP earnings on a forward-looking basis because the Company is unable to estimate with reasonable certainty unusual or unanticipated charges, expenses or gains without unreasonable effort. These items are uncertain, depend on various factors, and could be material to the Company’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.

(A) GCP’s segment operating income includes only GCP’s share of income of consolidated joint ventures.

(B) Management allocates all costs within corporate to each segment to the extent such costs are directly attributable to the segments.

(C) Certain pension costs include only ongoing costs recognized quarterly, which include service and interest costs, expected returns on plan assets, and amortization of prior service costs/credits. Specialty Construction Chemicals, Specialty Building Materials, and Darex Packaging Technologies segment operating income and corporate costs do not include any amounts for pension expense. Other pension related costs including annual mark-to-market adjustments, actuarial gains and losses, and other related costs are excluded from Adjusted EBIT. These amounts are not used by management to evaluate the performance of GCP's businesses and significantly affect the peer-to-peer and period-to-period comparability of our financial results. Mark-to-market adjustments, actuarial gains and losses, and other related costs relate primarily to changes in financial market values and actuarial assumptions and are not directly related to the operation of GCP's businesses.
