Non-GAAP Financial Measures Investors are cautioned that adjusted EBITDA, or earnings/(loss) before other income/(expense), taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-cash charges, if any, as used in this press release, is defined as a "non-GAAP financial measure" by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This measure may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation. In addition, although InterCloud's management has provided a reconciliation of this measure to the nearest comparable GAAP measure, it should not be construed as an alternative to any other measure of performance determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or as an indicator of InterCloud's operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. InterCloud's management presents this financial information because they believe that it is helpful to some investors as a measure of InterCloud's performance. InterCloud cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare InterCloud's current results with the results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies. Definitions and reconciliations between the non-GAAP measure and relevant GAAP measure are set forth in the tables at the end of this press release.
