Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated by comparing the company's quarterly average foreign exchange rates for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. The constant currency disclosures take current local currency revenue and translate it into U.S. dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates used to translate the local currency revenue for the applicable comparable period in the prior year, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the company's results or business.
