About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as set forth in the reconciliation table above, are provided because management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the results of the Company's continuing operations and believes this information provides investors supplemental insight into underlying business trends and operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's results of operations are impacted by certain non-recurring charges, including equity based compensation, divestiture related expenditures, expense related to the internal investigation into conduct in China and Singapore (the "China/Singapore internal investigation"), and other non-recurring charges that may not be indicative of the Company’s financial performance. Management believes that adjusting its operating expenses, operating loss, net loss and diluted loss per share to remove non-recurring charges provides a useful perspective with respect to the Company's operating results and provides supplemental information to both management and investors by removing items that are difficult to predict and are often unanticipated. While the Company believes the adjustments provide a useful comparison, the reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to corresponding GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated.

During the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company completed the sale of substantially all of the assets relating to the SureCheck product group within the Company's Restaurant/Retail segment. The Company made final adjustments of ($363,000) related to the sale, this represents adjustments of ($289,000) for inventory and ($74,000) for costs of service. The Company recorded approximately $159,000 of expenses related to the Company's continued cooperation with the Singapore authorities in connection with the findings of the completed China/Singapore internal investigation. Additionally, approximately $869,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the fourth quarter of 2019. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of approximately $242,000 related to the Company’s 2014 acquisition of Brink Software, Inc. (the "Brink Acquisition"), $171,000 related to the Company's 2019 acquisition of assets of 3M Company’s Drive-Thru Communications Systems business (the “Drive-Thru Asset Acquisition”) and $82,000 related to the Company’s acquisition of 100% of the limited liability company interests of AccSys, LLC (“Restaurant Magic Acquisition”). The provision for income tax was based on 24%, or approximately $452,000 to reflect the tax impact of non-GAAP adjustments. Further, the Company recognized approximately $724,000 accretion of interest related to the Company's 4.5% Convertible Senior Notes due 2024 (the "Notes").

During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a one-time reserve of $1,020,000 on hardware inventory as well as a one-time impairment charge of $1,586,000 related to SureCheck. The Company also recorded $218,000 of selling, general and administrative expenses related to the China/Singapore internal investigation. Additionally, $285,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the fourth quarter of 2018. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $242,000 and a $50,000 reduction in the contingent consideration payable related to the Brink Acquisition. The benefit from income tax was based on 24%, or $792,000, to reflect the tax impact from non-GAAP adjustments.
