Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are not prepared in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different
from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company's
management refers to these non-GAAP financial measures in making operating
decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding
the Company's operating performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial
measures facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's
historical operating results and comparisons to competitors' operating
results. We include these non-GAAP financial measures (which should be viewed
as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, their comparable GAAP measures)
in this press release because we believe they are useful to investors in
allowing for greater transparency into the supplemental information used by
management in its financial and operational decision-making. The non-GAAP
financial measures exclude (i) costs associated with the Company's class
action and derivative lawsuits, government investigations, and related legal
fees and (ii) noncash stock-based compensation charges and any potential tax
effects. For a reconciliation of our GAAP and non-GAAP financial results,
please refer to our Non-GAAP Operating Data GAAP Reconciliation, presented in
this release.
