About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with GAAP. However, non-GAAP adjusted financial measures, as set forth in the reconciliation table above, are provided because management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating the results of the Company's continuing operations and believes this information provides investors supplemental insight into underlying business trends and operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures should be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's results of operations are impacted by certain non-recurring charges, including equity based compensation, acquisition related expenditures, expense relating to the internal investigation into conduct in China and Singapore and the SEC document subpoena, and other non-recurring charges that may not be indicative of the Company's financial performance. Management believes that adjusting its operating expenses, operating loss, net loss and diluted loss per share to remove non-recurring charges provides a useful perspective with respect to our operating results and provides supplemental information to both management and investors by removing items that are difficult to predict and are often unanticipated. While the Company believes the adjustments provide a useful comparison, the reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to corresponding GAAP measures should be carefully evaluated.

During the first quarter of 2019, the Company recorded $568,000 of severance expenses, of which $143,000 are included in costs of sales, $317,000 are included in selling, general and administrative expenses and $108,000 are included in research and development expenses. The Company recorded $190,000 of expenses related to the Company's internal investigation into conduct at its China and Singapore offices and the SEC document subpoena. Additionally, $248,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the first quarter of 2019. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $241,000 related to the Company's 2014 acquisition of Brink Software, Inc. (the 'Brink Acquisition'). The provision for income tax line above is netted down by a 24%, or $299,000 tax impact from non-GAAP adjustments.

During the first quarter of 2018, the Company recorded $297,000 of expenses related to the Company's internal investigation and the SEC document subpoena. Additionally, $181,000 of equity based compensation charges were recorded during the first quarter of 2018. The Company recognized amortization of acquired intangible assets of $241,000 related to the Company's 2014 Brink Acquisition. The provision for income tax line above is netted down by a 24% or $173,000 tax impact from non-GAAP adjustments.
