Note 1 on Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We believe that Adjusted EBITDA, as a non-GAAP pro forma financial measure, provides meaningful information to investors in terms of enhancing their understanding of our operating performance and results, as it allows investors to more easily compare our financial performance on a consistent basis compared to the prior year periods. This non-GAAP financial measure also corresponds with the way we expect investment analysts to evaluate and compare our results. Any non-GAAP pro forma financial measures should be considered only as supplements to, and not as substitutes for or in isolation from, or superior to, our other measures of financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as net income attributable to Quotemedia, Inc.
We define and calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to Quotemedia, Inc., plus: 1) depreciation and amortization, 2) stock compensation expense, 3) interest expense, 4) foreign exchange loss (or minus a foreign exchange gain), and 5) income tax expense. We disclose Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is a useful metric by which to compare the performance of our business from period to period. We understand that measures similar to Adjusted EBITDA are broadly used by analysts, rating agencies, investors and financial institutions in assessing our performance. Accordingly, we believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors. The table below provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income attributable to Quotemedia, Inc., the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
Quotemedia, Inc. Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation to Net Income
|Three months ended June 30,||Six months ended June 30,|
|Depreciation and amortization||261,636||220,048||511,333||431,799|
|Foreign exchange loss (gain)||7,256||(4,383||)||21,314||(8,200||)|
|Income tax expense||747||774||1,499||1,565|
