Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Investors are cautioned that adjusted EBITDA, or earnings/(loss) before other income/(expense), taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and other non-cash charges, if any, as used in this press release, is defined as a "non-GAAP financial measure" by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This measure may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information, which is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, is not intended to be considered in isolation. In addition, although InterCloud's management has provided a reconciliation of this measure to the nearest comparable GAAP measure, it should not be construed as an alternative to any other measure of performance determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or as an indicator of InterCloud's operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. InterCloud's management presents this financial information because they believe that it is helpful to some investors as a measure of InterCloud's performance. InterCloud cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare InterCloud's current results with the results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies. Definitions and reconciliations between the non-GAAP measure and relevant GAAP measure are set forth in the tables at the end of this press release.

Forward Looking Statements

Statements in this press release regarding InterCloud that are not historical facts are forward- looking statements and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual future events or results to differ materially from such statements. Any such forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, financial guidance, are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. It is routine for InterCloud's internal projections and expectations to change as the quarter and year progresses, and therefore it should be clearly understood that the internal projections and beliefs upon which InterCloud bases its expectations may change. Although these expectations may change, InterCloud is under no obligation to inform you if they do. Actual events or results may differ materially from those contained in the projections or forward-looking statements. Some of the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements contained herein include, without limitation: InterCloud's inability to integrate recent and future acquisitions, which would adversely affect InterCloud's business, financial condition, result of operations and prospects; the cancellation of master service agreements, from which InterCloud derives a significant portion of its revenue, which may be cancelled by customers on short notice, or which InterCloud may be unable to renew on favorable terms or at all; the inability of InterCloud to attract and retain key personnel and skilled labor, or if labor difficulties are encountered, InterCloud's ability to bid for and successfully complete contracts may be negatively impacted; risks related to InterCloud's failure to compete effectively within its highly competitive industry, especially with a variety of larger companies with greater resources, which could reduce the number of new contracts awarded to InterCloud or adversely affect InterCloud's market share and harm InterCloud's financial performance; risks related to InterCloud's history of losses and deficiencies in working capital and stockholders' equity, which may continue in the future, raising substantial doubts about InterCloud's ability to continue as a going concern; risks related to the identification of material weaknesses in InterCloud's internal control over financial reporting, and a lack of assurance that additional material weaknesses or significant deficiencies will not occur in the future, leading to the possibility that InterCloud may not be able to accurately report financial results, prevent fraud, or file periodic reports in a timely manner, which may cause investors to lose confidence in InterCloud's reported financial information and may lead to a decline in InterCloud's stock price; and InterCloud's substantial indebtedness, which could adversely affect its business, financial condition and results of operations and its ability to meet payment obligations. This list is intended to identify only certain of the principal factors that could cause actual results to differ from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Readers are referred to the reports and documents filed from time to time by us with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a discussion of these and other important risk factors that could cause actual results to differ from those discussed in forward-looking statements.
