Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted by eliminating items that we believe are not part of our core operations, are non-recurring items of revenue or expense, or do not involve a cash outlay, such as stock-related compensation. We consider adjusted EBITDA important in monitoring and evaluating our financial performance on a consistent basis across various periods. We also use adjusted EBITDA as a primary measure, among others, to analyze and evaluate financial and strategic planning decisions.
