Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before interest (income)/expense, net
and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and
amortization, stock-based compensation, changes in the fair value of
contingent consideration in connection with business acquisitions and
provision for litigation settlements. This financial measure is not calculated
in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United
States of America (GAAP). We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is
a useful indicator of our operating performance. Our management uses Adjusted
EBITDA principally as a measure of our operating performance and believes that
Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors because it is frequently used by
securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in their
evaluation of the operating performance of companies in industries similar to
ours. We also believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to our management and
investors as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to
period and among companies as it is reflective of changes in pricing
decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance,
and it removes the effect of our capital structure (primarily interest
expense), asset base (primarily depreciation and amortization) and items
outside the control of our management (primarily income taxes and interest
income and expense). Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning
purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and
financial projections.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a
measure of our liquidity or operating performance prepared in accordance with
GAAP, and is not indicative of net income (loss) from operations as determined
under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures have
limitations that should be considered before using these measures to evaluate
our liquidity or financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not include
certain expenses that may be necessary to review our operating results and
liquidity requirements. Our definition and calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may
differ from that of other companies.
