Non-GAAP Financial Measure
interclick uses a non-GAAP financial measure in evaluating its financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparison. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measure provides meaningful supplemental information regarding performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of the performance of our core cash operations. interclick believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to this non-GAAP financial measure in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. interclick believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors because it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management.
EBITDA. As is common in the industry, interclick uses EBITDA as a measure of performance to demonstrate operating income exclusive of interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization (including stock-based compensation), and other income and expense of a non-operating nature. interclick, in its daily management of its business affairs and analysis of its monthly, quarterly and annual performance, makes certain of its decisions based on EBITDA. Since an outside investor may base its evaluation of interclick's performance on interclick's net income or loss, there is a limitation to the EBITDA measurement. EBITDA is not, and should not be considered, an alternative to net income or loss, income or loss from operations or any other measure for determining operating performance or liquidity, as determined under GAAP.
To comply with Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Commission, interclick attached to this press release, and will post to its website at , a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measure to the nearest comparable GAAP measure that is presented in this release.
