Non-GAAP Information

This press release includes the following financial measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"): adjusted income (loss) from operations, adjusted net loss, adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding, adjusted diluted loss per share and adjusted EBITDA. The Company has reconciled these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures under "GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures" in this release. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures not only provide its management with comparable financial data for internal financial analysis but also provide meaningful supplemental information to investors. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to better understand the performance of the Company's business and facilitate a more meaningful comparison of its diluted loss per share and actual results on a period-over-period basis. The Company has provided this information as a means to evaluate the results of its ongoing operations. Other companies in the Company's industry may calculate these items differently than it does. Each of these measures is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements in this release include our outlook for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 and for the full fiscal year 2015. Investors can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as "continue," "expect," "may," "opportunity" "plan," "future" "ahead" and similar terms and phrases. The Company cannot assure investors that future developments affecting the Company will be those that it has anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to risks relating to the Company's retail-based business model, general economic conditions and consumer spending, the Company's concentration of stores in the Western United States, competition in the outdoor activities and sporting goods market, changes in consumer demands, the company's expansion into new markets and planned growth, current and future government regulations, risks related to the Company's continued retention of its key management, the Company's distribution center, quality or safety concerns about the Company's merchandise, events that may affect the Company's vendors, trade restrictions, and other factors that are set forth in the Company's filings with the SEC, including under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2015 filed with the SEC on April 2, 2015 and our other public filings made with the SEC and available at www.sec.gov. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of the Company's assumptions prove incorrect, the Company's actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this release speaks only as of the date on which the Company makes it. Factors or events that could cause the Company's actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by any applicable securities laws.
