Non-GAAP financial information

To supplement our financial information presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and other certain non-operating items. We define non-GAAP earnings per diluted share as net income per diluted share, calculated by adding back to net income non-cash stock-based compensation expense, net of tax.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. The company cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare current results with results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies. Whenever we use these non-GAAP financial measures, we provide a reconciliation of the applicable non-GAAP financial measure to the most comparable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures as detailed in the tables below.
