Notes to Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Consolidated Statements of Operations For the Three and Twelve Months Ended October 31, 2013 and 2012

Results of Operations are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP").  Management also uses non-GAAP measures which exclude non-recurring items in order to measure operating periodic performance. We have added this information because we believe it helps in understanding the results of our operations on a comparative basis.  This adjusted information supplements and is not intended to replace performance measures required by U.S. GAAP disclosure.
