These forward-looking statements include material in quotations from management, including our estimate of our addressable market. Statements that include word such as "expects," "intends," "plan," "believe," "project," "estimate," "may," "should," "anticipate," "will" and similar statements identify many of our forward-looking statements. Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in our forward-looking statements. For example, market acceptance of our products, potential delays in product development, product offerings by our competitors, and our ability to finance anticipated growth could affect our future results. Other risk factors that could cause actual results to differ significantly from our expectations are described in our annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (available at www.sec.gov). Unless otherwise required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if our underlying assumptions otherwise prove to be incorrect, our actual results may vary materially from what we project. Any forward-looking statements you read in this news release reflect our views as of the date of this press release with respect to future events, and are subject to these and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions relating to our operations, financial condition, results of operations, growth strategy and liquidity.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures In this release we present certain non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position or cash flow that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). A reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP measures can be found in the accompanying tables. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies. We believe the calculation of non-GAAP net income (loss), calculated without giving effect to acquisition-related amortization charges, stock-based compensation expense and certain other amounts that we do not consider to be related to our ongoing core operating performance, provides a basis to compare our operating results across periods and against other companies in our industry. We also believe that adjusted EBITDA, which we calculate as GAAP net income (loss) less interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock compensation expense and certain other financial measures, is an indicator of our cash flows. This measure is commonly used by our lenders to assess our leverage capacity, debt service ability and liquidity. These non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure, as required under SEC rules and regulations, in tables attached to this release. Lyris, Inc.

Management believes that non-GAAP net income providesuseful, supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of thecompany's business operations. Non-GAAP net income is not a measure determined in accordancewith United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") and is thus susceptible tovarying calculations. As presented, this measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measuresthat other companies may disclose. Non-GAAP net income should not be considered in isolation orconstrued as a substitute for other measures of profitability prepared in accordance with GAAP forpurposes of analyzing our financial performance or profitability. Non-GAAP net income should beconsidered in addition to, and not as a substitute or as superior measure to, net income, earningsper share or other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by our lenders to assess leverage capacity, debt service ability and liquidity, and the company uses adjusted EBITDA to evaluate financial performance and to award incentive compensation for certain employees, including our chief executive officer. We believe that adjusted EBITDA also provides useful measurements of liquidity and financial performance for our investors. Lyris, Inc.
