Since the beginning of the year, Berkshire’s shareholders’ equity has increased $20.7 billion and our book value per Class A equivalent share has increased by 11.0% to $126,766 as of September 30, 2013.

The increase in shareholders’ equity is net of a reduction in Berkshire’s shareholders’ equity of approximately $1.2 billion (about $730 per Class A equivalent share).

The reduction, which does not reflect economic results, relates to purchases of the shares in Iscar not previously owned and purchases of additional shares in Marmon during the second quarter.

For additional background as to the reason these purchases have resulted in a reduction in shareholders’ equity, see Berkshire’s 2012 Annual Report
(page 13) and its 2011 Annual Report (page 15).

Insurance float (the net liabilities we assume under insurance contracts) at September 30, 2013 was $77 billion.


Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures


This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures.

The reconciliations of such measures to the most comparable GAAP figures in accordance with Regulation G are included herein.

Berkshire presents its results in the way it believes will be most meaningful and useful, as well as most transparent, to the investing public and others who use Berkshire’s financial information.

That presentation includes the use of certain non-GAAP financial measures.

In addition to the GAAP presentations of net earnings, Berkshire shows operating earnings defined as net earnings exclusive of investment and derivative gains/losses.

Although the investment of insurance and reinsurance premiums to generate investment income and investment gains or losses is an integral part of Berkshire’s operations, investing activities are independent of the insurance underwriting process.

Moreover, under applicable GAAP accounting requirements, losses can be created as the result of other-than-temporary declines in value without actual realization or when certain types of investments are marked-to-market through earnings.


In sum, investment and derivative gains/losses for any particular period are not indicative of quarterly business performance.
