Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
This release references the non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measure allows management and investors to understand and compare the Company's operating results in a more consistent manner for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 and for the outlook amounts provided for the second quarter and full year of fiscal 2012. The non-GAAP measure presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
