Orders is a non-GAAP measure defined as orders placed by customers in the time period referenced through our websites or our call centers. The nearest GAAP measure, sales, differs from Orders in that sales reflect orders that have shipped, net of cancellations, returns and exchanges. Coastal is reporting orders as the Company believes that its investors may use this figure to make more informed investment decisions about the Company. Orders is a non-GAAP measure that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian GAAP, is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, sales and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with Canadian GAAP.
