Use of Non-GAAP Financial InformationThis press release includes non-GAAP financial measures, specifically normalized net income, normalized net income per basic or diluted share, and adjusted EBITDA. Normalized net income is calculated as net income adjusted to reflect an effective 37.5% tax rate. Normalized net income per basic or diluted share is calculated as normalized net income divided by weighted-average basic or diluted shares outstanding, as applicable. As required by SEC rules, we have provided a schedule with a reconciliation of normalized net income and normalized net income per basic and diluted share to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, net income and net income per basic and diluted share. Management believes that normalized net income and normalized net income per basic or diluted share are some of the appropriate measures for evaluating the operating performance of the Company because of the significant swing in net income and net income per share as a result of the deferred tax valuation allowance release and other discrete tax items, and therefore, provides a more comparable measure of year-over-year operating results.
