Updated FY 2017 Guidance

For FY 2017, the Company is narrowing its range of revenue guidance to between $460 million and $480 million, excluding any contribution from potential acquisitions. Adjusted EBITDA* is expected to be between $18 million and $20 million.

The Company also reiterates its previously announced FY 2016 financial guidance. Revenues are expected to be in excess of $407 million, Adjusted EBITDA* to fall within a range from $16 million to $17 million, and net income (loss) to fall within a range from $(0.5 million) to $0.5 million.

The Company will provide greater detail on this guidance in its quarterly conference call.

The estimated full year 2016 results above and in the reconciliation table below are preliminary and unaudited. They are subject to the completion and finalization of fourth-quarter and year-end financial and accounting procedures, and reflect management’s estimate based solely upon information available to management as of the date of this press release. Further information learned during that completion and finalization may alter the final results. In addition, the preliminary estimates should not be viewed as a substitute for full year financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). In addition to the completion of our testing and the audit by our auditors, factors that could cause actual results to differ from those described above are set forth below under “Forward-Looking Statements.” Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance upon our preliminary estimates.

With respect to expected 2017 Adjusted EBITDA, a quantitative reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to adjustments that could be made with respect to taxes, transaction costs, stock-based compensation and other items which are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA. These items could have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

*Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income plus depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, taxes, and non-operating expenses such as management and consulting fees, loss from extinguishment of debt and expenses associated with our 2016 business combination transaction. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is meaningful to our investors to enhance their understanding of our financial performance for the current period exclusive of expenses that will not reoccur. We understand that Adjusted EBITDA is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance and to compare our performance with the performance of other companies that report Adjusted EBITDA. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, however, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. When assessing our operating performance, investors and others should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, the results presented by Adjusted EBITDA cannot be achieved without incurring the costs that the measure excludes below.
