(1) Cash flow from operations is a non-GAAP term requested by the oil and gas investment community that represents net earnings adjusted for non-cash items including depreciation, depletion and amortization, future income taxes, asset write-downs and gains (losses) on sale of assets, if any. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation provision, non-recurring items, gains (losses) on sale of assets, if any. These are non-GAAP financial measures, as defined herein, and should be read in conjunction with GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not presented as an alternative to GAAP cash flows from operations, as a measure of our liquidity or as an alternative to reported net income as an indicator of our operating performance. The non-GAAP financial measures as used herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We believe the use of Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP cash flow from operations along with GAAP financial measures enhances the understanding of our operating results and may be useful to investors in comparing our operating performance with that of other companies and estimating our enterprise value. Adjusted EBITDA is also a useful tool in evaluating the operating results of the Company given the significant variation that can result from, for example, the timing of capital expenditures and the amount of working capital in support of our programs and contracts. We also use Adjusted EBITDA internally to evaluate the operating performance of the Company, to allocate resources and capital, and to evaluate future growth opportunities.
