Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements, prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company provides certain Non-GAAP measures of financial performance. These Non-GAAP measures include Non-GAAP adjusted income.

The Company’s reference to these Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared under current accounting standards, but are not a substitute for, nor superior to, GAAP results. These Non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance investors' overall understanding of our current financial performance and to provide further information for comparative purposes.
