Non-U.S. GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has utilized the non-GAAP information set forth below as an
additional device to aid in understanding and analyzing its financial
results for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Management
believes that these non-GAAP measures will allow for an evaluation of
the operating performance of the Company's business and facilitate
meaningful comparison of the results in the current period to those in
prior and future periods. Reference to these non-GAAP measures should
not be considered a substitute for results that are presented in a
manner consistent with GAAP.
A limitation of utilizing these non-GAAP measures is that GAAP
accounting does in fact reflect the underlying financial results of the
Company's business. Therefore, management believes that the GAAP
measures as well as the corresponding non-GAAP measures of the Company's
financial performance should be considered together.
A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP net (loss) income for the
quarters ended September 30, 2012, and June 30, 2012, to its non-GAAP
EBITDA for the same periods are set forth below:
