* See “Annex A: Non-GAAP Financial Information—Adjusted EBITDA” for more information regarding the computation of Adjusted EBITDA.

“GTT posted another strong quarter of financial results and closed on a strategic acquisition,” said Richard D. Calder Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer. “Revenue grew 46 percent and Adjusted EBITDA grew 55 percent year-over-year.”

“We are well along with the integration of our latest acquisition.

ANNEX A: Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents operating income before depreciation and amortization on a non-GAAP (accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) combined basis for the periods presented, and adjusted to exclude certain one-time expenses including costs associated with employee terminations and other non-recurring items and non-cash compensation. GTT presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of GTT’s performance. GTT also presents Adjusted EBITDA because GTT believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in its industry and in measuring the ability of issuers to meet debt service obligations.
