Use of Non-GAAP Measures

We report Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions about our Company, including potential acquisitions. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA represents consolidated net loss before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, investment income, loss on dissolution of majority-owned subsidiary and foreign exchange gain/loss. This measure does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) and therefore is unlikely to be comparable to the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, and should not be viewed as an alternative to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The below table reconciles our Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, consolidated net loss:
