Financial report summary

Management Discussion
  • We believe that certain non-GAAP financial measures may provide users of this financial information with additional meaningful comparisons between current results and results in prior operating periods. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures can provide additional meaningful reflection of underlying trends of the business because they provide a comparison of historical information that excludes certain infrequently occurring, seasonal or non-operational items that impact the overall comparability. These non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative for, our reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
  • Adjusted operating income is defined by us as GAAP operating income excluding stock-based compensation and severance expense items in the period in which these items are incurred.
  • Operating income was $18.6 million for 2020 inclusive of a $10.7 million benefit from stock-based compensation compared to $5.5 million in 2019 which included $0.4 million of stock-based compensation expense. Excluding stock-based compensation and severance, adjusted operating income increased to $7.9 million in 2020 from $6.0 million in 2019 on improved sales margins and leveraging operating costs.
