Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition
This Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished to include supplemental unaudited historical information (furnished hereunder as Exhibit 99 and incorporated herein by reference) that was updated as a result of the following:
Changes in the measure of segment operating performance used by 3M’s chief operating decision maker impacting 3M’s segment reporting.
Changes to non-GAAP measures - certain amounts adjusted for special items, adjusted free cash flow, adjusted free cash flow conversion, and adjusted EBITDA. The information reflects expanding the extent of special item adjustments to include the sales and estimates of income (including exit costs) and associated activity regarding manufactured PFAS products.

The Company did not operate using the new measure of segment operating performance until the first quarter of 2023 and will begin to report comparative results under this basis with the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending March 31, 2023. Until 3M’s interim financial statements as of and for the quarter ending March 31, 2023 are issued, amounts on the updated basis are not in accordance with U.S. GAAP and, as a result, are considered non-GAAP measures.
The Company is furnishing this information as it believes it is useful to investors to aid in understanding, on a timely basis, the impacts of these changes on historical periods as they prepare to consider 3M’s future results on the updated basis.
As used herein, the term “3M” or “Company” includes 3M Company and its subsidiaries unless the context indicates otherwise. The information contained in this Current Report shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be incorporated by reference into a filing under the Securities Act of 1933, or the Exchange Act.
