Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Management believes that the presentation of certain financial information in this press release, excluding the costs associated with the Aktiv Kapital acquisition and the foreign exchange losses, specifically related to foreign currency forward contracts put in place between signing and closing of the Aktiv Kapital acquisition to mitigate the risk in converting dollars to euros, that were recorded during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014, which is non-GAAP financial information, is useful to investors and improves the comparability of the Company's ongoing operational results between periods. The non-GAAP information should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
