Regulation G – Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which
are not calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. generally
accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in evaluating its financial and
operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to period
comparison. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for
financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate
period-to-period comparisons. The Company presents these non-GAAP
financial measures because it believes them to be an important
supplemental measure of performance that is commonly used by securities
analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of
companies in our industry.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings (or loss) from
continuing operations before interest expense, change in warrant
liability, benefit or provision for income taxes, depreciation and
amortization, and non-cash stock-based compensation, non-recurring
acquisition and restructuring expenses, gain or loss on cumulative
foreign currency translation adjustment, gain on sale of asset, bad debt
expense outside the normal range, and the goodwill impairment charges.
The Company excludes stock-based compensation because it is non-cash in

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as an alternative
to net income, operating income, cash flow from operating activities, as
a measure of liquidity or any other financial measure. They may not be
indicative of the historical operating results of the Company nor is it
intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should
not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation or as a substitute
for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
