(1) Includes $450 thousand in costs related to the potential acquisition of the Company by Haemonetics Corporation ("Haemonetics"). These costs were expensed in the fourth quarter of 2009 and represent estimates.

(2) On September 23, 2002, the Company and PeopleMed.com, Inc. ("PeopleMed") filed a complaint against Donnie L. Jackson, Jr. ("Jackson") in a lawsuit entitled Global Med Technologies, Inc. v. Donnie L. Jackson, Jr., et al, El Dorado Superior Court Case No. PC 20020576 (the "Lawsuit").  During 2005, the Company set up a legal accrual in the amount of $1.004 million and expensed the same amount. In 2005, the Company also deposited $1.004 million into escrow related to the Lawsuit. During 2007, the Company was returned the $1.004 million deposit. The Lawsuit was settled in 2009 and claims were released. No amount was paid by Global Med to Jackson or Mediware Information Systems, Inc. ("Mediware") and no amount was paid by Jackson or Mediware to Global Med in connection with such settlement. Jackson made a representation as part of the settlement that he does not have possession of any trade secret or proprietary material of the Company described in its complaint for damages. As a result of the above, the Company reversed the $1.004 million legal accrual and the related expense during the year ended December 31, 2009. This represents a reversal of a non-cash, non-recurring expense as the funds were returned in 2007.

NON-GAAP RECONCILIATION SCHEDULE

(in thousands)

Reconciliation of Operating Income (Loss) before Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"):

Operating income before depreciation and amortization, a non-GAAP financial measure, is provided supplementally because it is widely used by investors as a valuation measure. The Company defines operating income before depreciation and amortization as operating income, plus depreciation and amortization expense. The Company provides adjustments to this calculation to exclude the effects of items management believes impact the comparability of operating results between periods. This measure is not a substitute for, and should be used in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures. Management uses operating income before depreciation and amortization as one of the principal measures to evaluate and monitor the ongoing financial performance of the Company's operations. Other companies may calculate operating income before depreciation and amortization differently.
