Non-GAAP Financial Measure and Related Information
This press release includes references to EBITDA, a financial measures that is not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). EBITDA is defined as net income (loss), before interest expense, income tax benefit (expense), depreciation and amortization expense. EBITDA is not a measurement of the Company’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that EBITDA is an important supplemental measure of its operating performance and a basis upon which its management assesses performance rather than cash flow measures. The Company’s management also believes that this non-GAAP measure is useful to investors because it and similar measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties to evaluate its competitors and provide additional information regarding growth rates on a more comparable basis than would be provided without such adjustments.
The Company prepared the information included in this press release based upon available information and assumptions and estimates that it believes are reasonable. The Company cannot assure you that its estimates and assumptions will prove to be accurate. Additionally, to the extent that forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures are provided, they are presented on a non-GAAP basis without reconciliations of such forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation.
