Non-GAAP Measures

We have presented certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”). Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income excluding stock-based compensation expenses, depreciation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition related expenses and gains and losses recognized on changes in the fair value of contingent consideration arrangements.

The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of our performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. Furthermore, the non-GAAP measures are regularly used internally to understand, manage and evaluate our business and make operating decisions, and we believe that they are useful to investors as a consistent and comparable measure of the ongoing performance of our business. However, our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, these non-GAAP financial measure may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.
