  • The purchase of technology from Reverbeo, which has enhanced the capabilities of Site Sync, our website translation solution; and
  • Improvements we have made to Transplicity, our translation management system, that is contributing to our organizational efficiency.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures - Adjusted EBITDA
    Three months ended June 30,   Six months ended June 30,  
EBITDA   2015   2014   2015   2014  
Net income (loss)   $ 3   $ 184   $ 7   $ (216 )
Interest expense     17     21     36     44  
Income taxes     -     14     10     34  
Depreciation and amortization     232     238     462     479

Adjusted EBITDA   $ 317   $ 522   $ 663   $ 470  

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA by taking net income (loss) calculated in accordance with GAAP, and adding interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. We believe that this non-GAAP measure of financial results provides useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Our management uses this non-GAAP measure to compare our performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses and for budgeting and planning purposes. This measure is also used in financial reports prepared for management and our board of directors. We believe that the use of this non-GAAP financial measure provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Our management does not consider this non-GAAP measure in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of this non-GAAP financial measure is that it excludes significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our consolidated financial statements. In addition, it is subject to inherent limitations as it reflects the exercise of judgments by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining this non-GAAP financial measure. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents this non-GAAP financial measure in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
