Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, API has provided the non-GAAP financial measures for Adjusted EBITDA at the Company level and segment level, and non-GAAP gross margin. Non-GAAP gross margin excludes restructuring charges and certain other adjustments described in the reconciliation table and non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) excludes restructuring charges, acquisition and divestiture-related charges, inventory provisions, stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of note discounts and deferred financing costs, and certain other adjustments described in the reconciliation table. API has also provided the non-GAAP financial measure for Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead, which is the Adjusted EBITDA number less general corporate overhead. Management believes the supplemental non-GAAP presentations provide investors an additional analytical tool for understanding the Company’s financial performance by excluding from operating results the impact of items that management believes do not reflect the Company’s core operating performance. These are not recognized measures under US GAAP, do not have a standardized meaning, and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Accordingly, investors are cautioned that these non-GAAP measures should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or loss or gross margin determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the Company's liquidity and cash flows. We expect our financial statements to continue to be affected by items similar to those excluded in the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that all such costs are unusual or infrequent.
