The Company believes that supplementing its financial statements prepared according to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP) with certain non-GAAP financial measures, as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), provides a more comprehensive understanding of the Company’s results of operations. Such measures include EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA and should not be considered an alternative to comparable GAAP financial measures, but should rather be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. Certain items we previously included in Adjusted EBITDA such as goodwill impairment loss, acquisition costs, other income and expense, income or loss from discontinued operations and loss on lease obligation are not currently included in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA because we do not believe that they are relevant to the ongoing operations of our Company. Readers are urged to review and consider carefully the various disclosures made by the Company in its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and other SEC filings, which advise interested parties of certain factors that affect the Company’s business.
