Supplemental non-GAAP financial information

EBITDA is defined as net (loss) income before interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. The Company believes that net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measurement to EBITDA. EBITDA is presented because the Company believes it is useful to investors as widely accepted financial indicators of a company's ability to service and/or incur indebtedness and because such disclosure provides investors with additional criteria used by the Company to evaluate our operating performance and in part, the performance-based compensation of certain of our employees. EBITDA is not defined under GAAP, should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a measure of our liquidity or performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and is not indicative of income from operations as determined under GAAP. EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures have limitations which should be considered before using these measures to evaluate the Company's liquidity or financial performance. EBITDA does not include interest expense, income tax expense or depreciation and amortization expense, which may be necessary in evaluating the Company's operating results and liquidity requirements or those of businesses we may acquire. The Company's management compensates for these limitations by using EBITDA as a supplement to GAAP results to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business or any business we may acquire. Our computation of EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures provided by other companies, because not all companies calculate this measure in the same fashion.
