"The rate of decline in revenues decreased in the second quarter, which is a positive and encouraging sign. But, more importantly, the structural and operational improvements that we have made as well as our ongoing focus on cost control improved our margins over the prior quarter and strengthened the company for the future," Alder said.

About Our Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes information about the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that both measures -- which exclude amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, non-cash interest expense on our convertible debt, asset impairment charges and restructuring charges as well as the associated tax impact of these charges -- provide additional useful information to investors regarding the Company's ongoing financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the Company's internal reporting, including information provided to the Company's Audit Committee and Board of Directors, contains non-GAAP measures.

A material limitation associated with the use of the above non-GAAP financial measures is that they have no standardized measurement prescribed by GAAP and may not be comparable with similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing full disclosure of each non-GAAP financial measure and reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. However, the non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
