Notes to reconciliation of GAAP net income to non-GAAP pro forma net income:



Reflects the adjustment to eliminate the historical interest expense for all periods presented that were based upon actual outstanding balances before the application of the net proceeds from our IPO.



Reflects interest expense assuming our current post-IPO long-term debt balance of $5.0 million was outstanding as of the beginning of fiscal year 2011. This balance reflects $79.4 million repayment of long-term debt from the net proceeds from our IPO. This interest expense calculation assumes a change in interest rate from 8.5% to 7.0% due to the reduction in our total leverage ratio to below 2.0 to 1.0 upon application of the net proceeds from the IPO. The interest adjustment is also based on the following assumptions:




an unused facility fee on the unfunded $10.5 million of our revolver and delayed Term B Loan at an annual rate of 0.5%; and


a lower annual amortization of deferred loan costs of approximately $25,000 after the write-off of approximately $1.6 million, which occurred in the third quarter of 2012 but is assumed to occur at the beginning of fiscal 2011.



Reflects the elimination of the management fees and expenses paid and reimbursed to Goode Partners, LLC for the periods presented.



Reflects the elimination of one-time charges in 2011 for the settlement with former director of $245,000 and a special one-time cash bonus payment of approximately $1.0 million made to certain members of management in conjunction with the successful completion of the Company’s refinancing of its credit facility in the third quarter of 2011.



Reflects the elimination of the offering expenses associated with the follow-on offering of secondary shares of the Company.



Reflects an estimate of recurring incremental legal, accounting, insurance and other compliance costs we expect to incur as a public company for the periods prior to being a public company.



Reflects the tax expense associated with normalizing the tax rate to 30%, which reflects our estimated long-term effective tax rate.



Reflects (i) 6,708,332 additional shares of common stock issued in the IPO, (ii) the repurchase by the Company of 1,655,662 shares of its common and preferred stock on April 6, 2012, and (iii) the conversion of all series of our outstanding preferred stock into common stock as if all of these transactions occurred at the beginning of fiscal year 2011.
