of the excluded information, together with some of the excluded information not
being ascertainable or accessible, the Company is unable to quantify certain
amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable
GAAP financial measures without unreasonable efforts.
Management of the Company uses the non-GAAP Measures to evaluate ongoing
operations and believes that these non-GAAP Measures are useful to investors.
