The Company uses Net Loss from Continuing Operations Excluding Non-Cash Charges as a non-GAAP financial measure in evaluating its performance. This measure represents net loss from continuing operations, less equity-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, and other non-cash adjustments included in net loss from continuing operations. The Company believes that providing this measure to investors provides important supplemental information of its performance and permits investors and management to evaluate the core operating performance and cash utilization of the Company by excluding the use of these non-cash adjustments. Additionally, the Company believes this information is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of performance. Management uses, and believes that investors benefit from, this non-GAAP financial measure in assessing the Company's operating results, as well as in planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods.
Net Loss from Continuing Operations Excluding Non-Cash Charges has limitations as an analytical tool, and investors should not consider this measure in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results as reported under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("U.S. GAAP"). For example, this measure does not reflect the Company's cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures, contractual commitments, or cash requirements for working capital needs. Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and Net Loss from Continuing Operations Excluding Non-Cash Charges does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. Given these limitations, the Company relies primarily on its U.S. GAAP results and uses the Net Loss from Continuing Operations Excluding Non-Cash Charges measure only as a supplemental measure of its financial performance and cash utilization.
