Cautionary Statement on Financial Measures Non-GAAP Measures: In preparing the accompanying information, the Company has excluded, where applicable, the impact of certain Non-GAAP costs as listed at the end of this presentation. The Company believes these Non-GAAP measures provide both management and investors with additional insight into its current operations, the trends affecting the Company and the Company's marketplace performance. Management believes these items allow readers to better correlate the Company's operating activities with the Company's ability to generate cash from operations. Accordingly, management uses these Non-GAAP measures along with comparable GAAP information when evaluating the Company’s historical performance and future business activities. The Company’s Non-GAAP measures may be different than those used by other companies and should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, the Company’s financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Please refer to our press release dated June 26, 2019, which is posted under SEC Filings on the “Investor Relations” section of our website for the required reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measures.
