Non-GAAP Financial Information To supplement the Company’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company provides non-GAAP financial measure of net income, operating income, adjusted EBITDA and diluted earnings per share. By providing information about both the overall GAAP financial performance and the non-GAAP measures, that focus on what management believes to be its ongoing business operations, the Company believes that the additional information enhances investors’ overall understanding of the Company’s business. The Company’s management believes it is useful for itself and investors to review, as applicable, both GAAP information that includes the impact of accretion of redemption premium expense, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, gains or losses from revaluation of warrants, contingent consideration expense and the related tax impact of all of these items on the provision for income taxes, and the non-GAAP measures that exclude such information in order to assess the performance of the Company’s business for planning and forecasting in subsequent periods. The Company’s management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Whenever the Company uses such a non-GAAP financial measure, it provides a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed above. Investors are also encouraged to review the Company’s GAAP financial statements as reported in its SEC filings.
