(1) Management believes that EBITDA (earnings before interest, income taxes

EBITDA is not a recognized earnings measure under generally accepted
accounting principles ("GAAP") and does not have a standardized meaning.
Therefore, EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by
other companies.

EBITDA is reconciled to net income as follows:
