Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We disclose non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations as a supplemental measure to U.S. GAAP (loss) income from continuing operations regarding our operational performance. This financial measure excludes the impact of certain items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating results; therefore, it has not been calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

We believe that this additional non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in assessing our operating performance. We also use this financial measure internally to evaluate our operating performance and for planning and forecasting of future periods. In addition, financial analysts that follow us may focus on and publish both historical results and future projections based on our non-GAAP financial measure. We also believe that it is in the best interest of our investors to provide this non-GAAP information.
