Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The press release, PowerPoint slides and presentation described above include certain metrics presented on a non-GAAP basis, including non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted net income, and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share. Higher One believes that these non-GAAP measures, which exclude amortization of intangibles, stock based compensation, and certain one-time or non-cash impacts to Higher Ones results, all net of taxes, provide useful information regarding normalized trends relating to the companys financial condition and results of operations. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to their closest comparable GAAP measures are included in the press release, PowerPoint slides and presentation.

These statements speak only as of the date they are made, and the company does not intend to update or otherwise revise the forward-looking information to reflect actual results of operations, changes in financial condition, changes in estimates, expectations or assumptions, changes in general economic or industry conditions or other circumstances arising and/or existing since the preparation of this Form 8-K or to reflect the occurrence of any unanticipated events.
