Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

vRad records its results of operations in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). In addition, vRad is providing certain supplemental non-GAAP information which the Company believes to be an important indicator of its financial performance. vRad uses the following non-GAAP financial measures:

  • Adjusted EBITDA - net income excluding the net effects of interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and medical malpractice loss reserves;
  • Adjusted net income - net income excluding the effects of non-cash stock-based compensation, net of tax, and medical malpractice loss reserves, net of tax; and
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share - adjusted net income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

vRad presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they are a useful indicator of its performance and on-going operations. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in part because such measures are frequently used by securities analysts to measure a company's operating performance without regard to certain items, such as income tax expense, net interest income and depreciation and amortization, which can vary substantially from company to company. vRad's management also uses these non-GAAP financial measures in order to review and assess its operating performance and its management team in connection with certain incentive programs and the preparation of its financial projections.

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are not measurements of the Company's financial performance under GAAP and may not be comparable to the calculation of similarly titled measures reported by other companies. These measures should not be considered as an alternative to net income, earnings per share or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income excluding the net effects of interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation expense and medical malpractice loss reserves (other than specific case reserves). See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Supplemental Information and Non-GAAP Reconciliations" for more information related to adjusted EBITDA.

(2) Adjusted net income consists of net income excluding the effects of non-cash stock-based compensation, net of tax, and medical malpractice loss reserves (other than specific case reserves), net of tax. See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Supplemental Information and Non-GAAP Reconciliations" for more information related to adjusted net income.

(3) Adjusted diluted earnings per share consists of adjusted net income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. See "Notes Regarding the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Supplemental Information and Non-GAAP Reconciliations" for more information related to adjusted diluted earnings per share.
