Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures: “EBITDA,” “adjusted EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA margin" and "adjusted earnings per share." Shiloh define EBITDA as net income / (loss) before interest, taxes, stock compensation, depreciation and amortization. Shiloh defines adjusted EBITDA as net income / (loss) before interest, taxes, stock compensation, depreciation, amortization, and other adjustments as described in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. Shiloh defines adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenues as shown in the reconciliations accompanying this press release. Adjusted earnings per share excludes certain income and expense items as shown in the reconciliation accompanying this press release. Shiloh uses EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted earnings per share as supplements to information provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in evaluating the Company's business and they are included in this press release because they are principal factors upon which Shiloh's management assesses performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are set forth below. The non-GAAP measures presented in this release are not measures of performance under GAAP. These measures should not be considered as alternatives for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other companies in Shiloh's industry may define these non-GAAP measures differently than we do and, as a result, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies; and certain of Shiloh's non-GAAP financial measures exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating Shiloh's performance. Given the inherent uncertainty regarding special items and other expenses in any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP is not feasible. The magnitude of these items, however, may be significant.
