Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to the financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables and the related earnings conference call contain certain non-GAAP financial measures. Our management regularly uses these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and forecast future periods and believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP measures, provide incremental insight into the underlying factors and trends affecting both the Company’s performance and its cash-generating potential.
Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments for stock-based compensation expenses; business development expenses; and acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, deferred compensation amortization and tax effects. We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation; the cost of outside professional services for negotiating and performing legal, accounting and tax due diligence for potential mergers, and acquisitions; and acquisition-related intangible asset and deferred compensation amortization, and tax effects, from our non-GAAP gross profit, operating expenses and net income measures. Stock-based compensation, which represents the estimated fair value of stock options and restricted stock granted to employees, is excluded since grant activities vary significantly from quarter to quarter in both quantity and fair value. In addition, although stock-based compensation will recur in future periods, excluding this expense allows us to better compare core operating results with those of our competitors who also generally exclude stock-based compensation from their core operating results, and who may have different granting patterns and types of equity awards and who may use different option valuation assumptions than we do. Business development expenses are necessary as part of certain growth strategies, such as through mergers and acquisitions, and will occur when such transactions are pursued. We have excluded these expenses because they can vary materially from period-to-period and transaction-to-transaction and expenses associated with these business development activities are not considered a key measure of the Company's operating performance. Acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, deferred compensation amortization and tax effects represent non-cash charges and benefits that result from the accounting for acquisitions. We have excluded these items because, in any period, they may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of the Company’s business and these items can vary materially from period-to-period and transaction-to-transaction. In addition, we exclude these acquisition-related costs and benefits when evaluating our current operating performance.
Our non-GAAP financial measures may not reflect the full economic impact of the Company’s activities. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may be unique to the Company, as they may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including the Company’s competitors. As such, this presentation of non-GAAP financial measures may not enhance the comparability of the Company’s results to the results of other companies. Therefore, these non-GAAP financial measures are limited in their usefulness and investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on our non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, investors are cautioned that these non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations.”
