* Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes non-GAAP financial measures, including, without limitation, adjusted EBITDA (which eliminates the impact of interest, taxes, amortization and depreciation expenses, as well as non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other non-recurring items not part of regular business), Adjusted EBITDA margin, Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) (which eliminates the impact of amortization expenses as well as non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and other non-recurring items not part of regular business) and Non-GAAP Income (Loss) per share. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures in the tables below.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as an addition to TIS’ GAAP results provided in the attached financial statements for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016, and is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. The attached tables reconcile each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. TIS’ management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding TIS’ performance by excluding the impact of certain charges and gains that may not be indicative of TIS’ core business operating results.

These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons to TIS’ historical performance and its competitors’ operating results. TIS includes these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.
