About ACTIVE Network
Note With Respect to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to using GAAP financial results, the Company's management measures and reports non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income (loss) and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. The most directly comparable GAAP financial results for these non-GAAP financial measures are Net income (loss), Net income (loss) and Net income (loss) per share, respectively. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company's performance and operations. Management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures for business planning, to evaluate acquisition opportunities and as a measurement to create incentives and to compensate the Company's management team. In addition, management believes the exclusion or inclusion of certain amounts in calculating these non-GAAP financial measures can provide a useful measure to investors for period-to-period comparisons. These non-GAAP financial measures, however, should be used in addition to, and in conjunction with, the Company's financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. The Company strongly encourages investors to review its financial statements in their entirety and to not rely on any single financial measure. Because non-GAAP financial measures are not standardized, it may not be possible to compare the Company's results with other companies' non-GAAP financial measures having the same or similar names. Please see Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results below for a reconciliation of our GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures.
