Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Zhone's consolidated financial statements presented in
accordance with GAAP, Zhone uses adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure
Zhone believes is appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of
Zhone's past financial performance and prospects for the future.
These adjustments to GAAP results are made with the intent of providing
greater transparency to supplemental information used by management in
its financial and operational decision-making. These non-GAAP results
are among the primary indicators that management uses as a basis for
making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental
information regarding the Company's operational performance,
including the Company's ability to provide cash flows to invest in
research and development, and to fund capital expenditures. In addition,
these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management's internal
comparisons to the Company's historical operating results and
comparisons to competitors' operating results. The presentation of
this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation
or as a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in
accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between net loss calculated on a
GAAP basis and adjusted EBITDA on a non-GAAP basis is provided in a
table immediately following the Unaudited Condensed Consolidated
Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss).
