To properly evaluate Emdeon's business, Emdeon encourages investors to review the GAAP financial information included in this release, and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Emdeon's business. Emdeon also strongly encourages investors to review the reconciliation of GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share to the applicable non-GAAP measures of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per fully diluted share. These non-GAAP measures, as Emdeon defines them, may not be similar to non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
Management uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income per fully diluted share to facilitate a comparison of Emdeon's operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed in combination with Emdeon's GAAP results, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Emdeon's business than GAAP measures alone. Management believes these non-GAAP measures assist Emdeon's board of directors, management, lenders and investors in comparing Emdeon's operating performance on a consistent basis because they remove where applicable, the impact of Emdeon's capital structure, asset base, acquisition accounting, non-cash charges and non-operating items from Emdeon's operations.
