*To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the non-GAAP financial measure of EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) which is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain items. We have excluded the special costs associated with severance charges pertaining to the departure of Jeff Baker, former President and CEO, and other personnel during the first quarter to provide a meaningful comparison between current results and prior reported results. This non-GAAP financial measure is provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of our current financial performance and our prospects for the future. This measure should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. The non-GAAP financial measure included in this press release has been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure.
