(1) USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release contains non-GAAP financial information which is intended to make the Company's financial statements more directly comparable on a period-to-period basis. The objective is to enhance investors' overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its planning and forecasting of future periods. Table 3 below contains reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures contained in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. The "adjusted" non-GAAP financial information discussed in this press release is related to the following two factors:

In addition, this press release contains non-GAAP financial information related to the pro-forma organic net revenue growth rate for 2007. This growth rate is calculated as if all companies acquired by the Company as of September 30, 2007 were owned by it as of January 1, 2006.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial information included in the exhibit, when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, is useful to investors in assessing the performance of the Company's operations on a consistent basis from period to period. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for the same purpose.
