Reconciliations of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP
(generally accepted accounting principles) basis, the Company uses
certain non-GAAP measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as
net income adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization expense,
interest income (expense), provision (benefit) for income taxes,
stock-based compensation expense, investment income and other items we
believe are discrete events which have a significant impact on
comparable GAAP measures and could distort an evaluation of our normal
operating performance. These adjustments to our GAAP results are made
with the intent of providing both management and investors a more
complete understanding of the underlying operational results and trends
and our marketplace performance. The presentation of this additional
information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a
substitute for net earnings or diluted earnings per share prepared in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United
