In addition to net income determined in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures such as "Adjusted EBITDA" in assessing Swisher Hygiene's operating performance. Swisher Hygiene believes this non-GAAP measure serves as an appropriate measure to be used in evaluating the performance of its business. Swisher Hygiene defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss excluding the impact of income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, investigation and review related expenses, net interest expense, foreign currency gain and other income, net change on debt related fair value measurements, stock based compensation, severance, and third party costs directly related to merger and acquisitions.
