Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
A copy of the
The attached press release attached hereto and filed as exhibit 99.1 includes non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA was derived by taking earnings before interest expense (net), taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA and Non-GAAP net income each exclude stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA may not be similar to Adjusted EBITDA measures used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with its results of operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with, and not in lieu of, the corresponding GAAP measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled in the accompanying tables to the most directly comparable measures as reported in accordance with GAAP.
Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the overall performance of the Company's business operations. Though management finds these non-GAAP financial measures useful for evaluating aspects of the Company's business, its reliance on these measures are limited because excluded items often have a material effect on the Company's net income and net income per common share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, management uses the non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with the comparable GAAP financial measures..
