NON-GAAP Financial Measures
This release contains a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

The Company, as is common in its industry, uses adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance to demonstrate earnings exclusive of interest and non-cash events. The Company, in its daily management of its business affairs and analysis of its monthly, quarterly and annual performance, makes its decisions based on cash flows, not on the amortization of assets obtained through historical activities. The Company cannot affect the amortization of the intangible assets to any material degree, and therefore uses adjusted EBITDA as its primary management guide. Since an outside investor may base their evaluation of the Company's performance based on the Company's net income (loss) and not its cash flows, there is a limitation to the adjusted EBITDA measurement. Adjusted EBITDA is not, and should not be considered, an alternative to net income (loss), income (loss) from operations, or any other measure for determining operating performance of liquidity, as determined under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP). The most directly comparable GAAP reference in the Company's case is the removal of interest, depreciation, amortization, taxes and other non-cash expense. In assessing the overall health of its business for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company excluded items in the following general categories, each of which are described below:

  • Gain (loss) on derivative liability. The Company has historically recorded non-cash gains and losses on the fair value of its derivative liabilities that arose from the sale of the Convertible Debentures in May and July 2008. These Debentures had embedded derivatives and the accounting treatment of derivative financial instruments requires that the Company record all derivatives and related warrants, and classify all other non-employee stock options and warrants as derivative liabilities and mark them to market at each reporting date. The Company considers this a financing transaction, and it is not an indication of current or future operating performance. Therefore, the Company does not consider the inclusion of this transaction helpful in assessing its current financial performance compared to previous periods as well as prospects for the future.

  • Stock-based compensation. The Company believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, varying methodologies for determining stock-based compensation and the assumptions and estimates involved in those determinations, the exclusion of non-cash stock-based compensation enhances the ability of management and investors to understand the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation on our operating results. Further, the Company believes that excluding stock-based compensation expense allows for a more transparent comparison of its financial results to previous periods.

  • Gain on disposal of property and equipment:  In the first quarter of 2011, the Company recorded the disposal of a company vehicle. The Company considered this a one-time transaction, and it is not an indication of current or future operating performance. Therefore, the Company does not consider the inclusion of this transaction helpful in assessing its current financial performance compared to previous periods as well as prospects for the future.

  • Gain on sale of product line:  In the first quarter of 2011, the Company sold its Series 5 Power Line Carrier product line and related business assets under an Asset Purchase Agreement ("APA"). Per the APA, the Company signed an unsecured Promissory Note due to the Purchaser. The note contains certain earn-out provisions that encompass both the Company's and the Purchaser's revenue volumes. In the second quarter 2012, the Company recorded a gain associated with the earn-out provision. The Company does not consider these ongoing transactions, and it is not an indication of current or future operating performance. Therefore, the Company does not consider the inclusion of these transactions helpful in assessing its current financial performance compared to previous periods as well as prospects for the future.

The non-GAAP financial measure described above, and used in this press release, should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, a measure of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, investors are cautioned that there are inherent limitations associated with the use of the non-GAAP financial measure as an analytical tool. In particular, the non-GAAP financial measure is not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and many of the adjustments to the GAAP financial measure reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in the Company's financial results for the foreseeable future. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing specific information in the reconciliation included in this press release regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from the non-GAAP financial measure. In addition, as noted above, the Company evaluates the non-GAAP financial measure together with the most directly comparable GAAP financial information.
