About the Company's Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release contains non-GAAP financial measures of the Company's performance ("Non-GAAP financial measures") for different periods. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company's Non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, and differ both from GAAP financial measures and from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company urges investors to review its reconciliation of Non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures, and its financial statements to evaluate its business.

The Company believes that its Non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful information regarding operating results because they do not include amounts that the Company excludes when monitoring operating results and assessing performance of the business. The Company believes that its Non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparison of results for current periods and business outlook for future periods.

The Company's management uses Non-GAAP measures in internal reports used to monitor and make decisions about its business, such as monthly financial reports prepared for management. The principal limitation of the Non-GAAP measures is that they exclude significant expenses and gains required under GAAP. They also reflect the exercise of management's judgments about which adjustments are appropriately made. To mitigate this limitation, the Company presents the Non-GAAP measures in connection with GAAP results, and recommends that investors do not give undue weight to them. The Company believes that Non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors by allowing them to view the business through the eyes of management, facilitating comparison of results across historical and future periods, and providing a focus on the underlying operating performance of the business.
