Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to presenting GAAP net income (loss), we present non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA (loss), which we define as earnings before (to the extent otherwise applicable) interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, intangibles and goodwill impairment charges, merger and acquisition related expenses, stock compensation expense, and restructuring charges as a relevant measure of performance approximating operating cash flow, a metric commonly used among technology companies. We believe that this provides meaningful supplemental information to our investors regarding our ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA (loss) should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, GAAP measures of financial performance. For more information on our adjusted EBITDA (loss) please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA (loss)" below. While we believe that adjusted EBITDA (loss) is useful as described above, it is incomplete and should not be used to evaluate the full performance of the Company or its prospects. Although historically infrequent, unpredictable and significantly variable and thus included in this adjustment, mergers and acquisitions expenses may occur in the future if additional acquisitions are pursued. Further, while we have incurred restructuring expense in the past, this is not a routine aspect of our operating activities and varies in amount and effect. Additionally, stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be, a recurring expense as an important incentive component of employee compensation. GAAP net income (loss) is the most complete measure available to evaluate all elements of our performance. Similarly, our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows, as presented in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, provides the full accounting for how we have decided to use resources provided to us from our customers and shareholders.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements including, without limitation, statements about our expectations for stabilization of our business and revenues, market strategies for our sales and opportunities in our geographic markets, and our ability to grow our customer base, revenues, and cash flow. Such statements are based on current expectations about the Company's business. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve numerous risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. The Company's actual results could differ materially from those expressed in forward-looking statements for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to factors affecting our fluctuating operating results that are difficult to forecast or outside our control; our limited liquidity due to historical operating losses and negative cash flow, the dependence of our growth consistent with our long-term model on the successful execution of our mobile strategy and continued evolution towards collaborative automation, the effect of the current state of the manufacturing sector and other businesses of our customers; the effectiveness and unintended consequences of our restructuring actions and other expense-related matters; changes in our management team; the impact of acquisitions and strategic plans on our cash resources and operations, the Company's inability to accurately forecast or react quickly to changes in demand for our products; seasonality of results, particularly in Europe; risks of technical and commercial acceptance of the Company's new or current products; the costs of international operations, sales and suppliers and the impact of foreign currency exchange; the cyclicality of capital spending of the Company's customers and lack of long-term customer contracts; the highly competitive nature of and rapid technological change within the intelligent automation industry; the lengthy sales cycles for the Company's products; the Company's increasing investment in markets that are subject to increased regulation; risks associated with outsourced manufacturing and single sources of supply; potential delays associated with the development and introduction of new products; and potential costs of regulatory compliance.
