Acquisitions / Discontinued Operations

The Company has completed two acquisitions that have impacted the comparability of the operating results presented. The results of operations for each of the following entities have been included in the Company's results since the acquisition date.

  • Peer 39, Inc. ("Peer 39") on April 30, 2012 (included in online segment)
  • NCMG, Inc. ("North Country") on July 31, 2012 (included in television segment)

We sold the net assets of our Springbox unit effective June 1, 2012 for estimated proceeds of $0.9 million, resulting in an after tax loss of $0.6 million. Results of our Springbox unit have been included in discontinued operations for 2012.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to providing financial measurements based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP), the Company has historically provided additional financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP (non-GAAP). We believe that the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead as non-GAAP financial measures in this press release helps investors to gain a meaningful understanding of our past performance and future prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts our performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods or forecasts. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead as non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring our core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors.

We use Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead to measure the operating performance of our business. These measures are used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. There are limitations associated with reliance on any non-GAAP financial measures because they are specific to our operations and financial performance, which makes comparisons with other companies' financial results more challenging. By providing both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures, we believe that investors are able to compare our GAAP results to those of other companies while also gaining a better understanding of our operating performance as evaluated by management.

The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the overall performance of the Company because it eliminates the effects of events that are non-cash, or are not expected to recur as they are not part of our ongoing operations.

The Company defines "Adjusted EBITDA" as income (loss) from operations, before depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation, acquisition, integration and other expenses, and restructuring / impairment charges and benefits. The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance and a good measure of the Company's historical operating trends.

Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that are either not part of our core operations, such as acquisition, integration and other expenses or do not require a cash outlay, such as share-based compensation and impairment charges. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense, which is based on the Company's estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets. These estimates could vary from actual performance of the asset, are based on historical costs, and may not be indicative of current or future capital expenditures.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead represents Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead on a segment by segment basis.

Adjusted EBITDA and Segment Adjusted EBITDA before corporate overhead should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the Company's operating income, as well as other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In accordance with the requirements of Regulation G issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Company is presenting the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measure.
