Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company's stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating income/(loss), net income/(loss), weighted average shares outstanding, and net income/(loss) per share. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets and transaction costs for business combinations. Non-GAAP net income/(loss) excludes these expenses as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business, and in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict. The Company considers these events to be non-routine, and believes these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors.

The Company considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of the Company and are used by the Company's management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the financial performance of a company. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the Company's operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
