The table above reconciles net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA is defined as net income before net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and a one-time expense of a non-recurring loss due to the bankruptcy of Corporate Commercial Bank in Bulgaria, which is not relevant to forward-looking analyses and is not linked to the Company’s operational performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before other operating expenses related to the acquisition of a subsidiary in Japan and a regulatory fine, and expenses related to stock-based compensation. Although EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, management believes that they are useful to the Company and to an investor in evaluating the Company because they are widely used measures to evaluate a company’s operating performance.
