Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In presenting Alterra’s results, management has included and discussed net operating income, net operating income per diluted share, annualized net operating return on average shareholders’ equity and diluted tangible book value per share. These measures are “non-GAAP financial measures” as defined in Regulation G. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, which may be defined differently by other companies, allow for a more complete understanding of Alterra’s business. These measures, however, should not be viewed as a substitute for measures determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The reconciliation of these measures to their respective most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures is presented in the attached financial information in accordance with Regulation G.
