ANNEX A: Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA represents operating income before depreciation and amortization on a non-GAAP (accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) combined basis for the periods presented, and adjusted to exclude certain one-time expenses including costs associated with employee terminations and other non-recurring items and non-cash compensation. GTT presents Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of GTT’s performance. GTT also presents Adjusted EBITDA because GTT believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in its industry and in measuring the ability of issuers to meet debt service obligations.

In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future GTT may incur expenses similar to the adjustments in this presentation. GTT’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that GTT’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of GTT’s financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

The following is a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to operating income (amounts in thousands):

       
Three Months Ended September 30, Nine Months Ended September 30,
2012 2011 2012 2011
Operating income $ 1,357 $ 1,262 $ 3,613 $ 2,073
Depreciation and amortization 2,202 1,160 4,930 2,725
Restructuring costs, employee termination and other items - - 701 958
Non-cash compensation   148   138   440   455
Adjusted EBITDA $ 3,707 $ 2,560 $ 9,684 $ 6,211

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
