Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial results calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), information containing non-GAAP financial measures for the Company are disclosed in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Management encourages readers to rely upon the GAAP numbers, but includes the non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental metrics to assist readers.
In this press release, the Company presents the non-GAAP financial measure “Adjusted EBITDA.” Company management uses this non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s performance. As the Company’s core business is providing information technology services and products, Company management finds it useful to use “Adjusted EBITDA”, which does not include interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, preferred stock dividends, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, restructuring expenses, changes in estimates related to acquisitions and impairment charge on goodwill and intangible assets. While we may have these types of items and charges in the future, Company management believes that they are not reflective of the day- to-day offering of its products and services and relate more to strategic, multi-year corporate actions, without predictable trends, and that may obscure the trends and financial performance of the Company’s core business. Company management believes the exclusion of the items described above from “Adjusted EBITDA” is a very common measure utilized in the investment community and it helps Company management benchmark its operations and results with the industry.
The limitation associated with using these non-GAAP financial measures is that these measures exclude items that impact the Company’s current period operating results. This limitation is best addressed by using these non-GAAP financial measures in combination with “net income (loss)”, and “net income (loss) per diluted share” (the most comparable GAAP measures) because these non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect items that impact current period operating results and may be higher or lower than the most comparable GAAP measure.
