(1) Mattersight presents Adjusted Earnings, a non-GAAP measure that
    represents cash earnings performance, excluding the impact of non-cash
    expenses and expense reduction activities, because management believes
    that Adjusted Earnings provide investors with a better understanding of
    the results of Mattersight's operations. Management believes that
    Adjusted Earnings reflect Mattersight's resources available to invest in
    its business and strengthen its balance sheet. In addition, expense
    reduction activities can vary significantly between periods on the basis
    of factors that management does not believe reflect current-period
    operating performance. Although similar adjustments for expense
    reduction activities may be recorded in future periods, the size and
    frequency of these adjustments cannot be predicted. The Adjusted
    Earnings measure should be considered in addition to, not as a
    substitute for or superior to, operating income, cash flows or other
    measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
