Adjusted EBITDA

Sentry Technology Corporation uses Adjusted EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial performance measurement. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income (loss) interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense and net (loss) income attributable to the noncontrolling interest. Adjusted EBITDA is provided to investors to supplement the results of operations reported in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing Sentry Technology Corporation's financial results with other companies that also use Adjusted EBITDA in their communications to investors. By excluding non-cash charges such as depreciation and amortization, as well as non-operating charges for interest and income taxes and net (loss) income attributable to the noncontrolling interest, investors can evaluate the Company's operations and can compare its results on a more consistent basis to the results of other companies. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary measures management uses to monitor and evaluate financial and operating results.

Sentry Technology Corporation considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a useful measure of the Company's operating trends. However, there are significant limitations to the use of Adjusted EBITDA since it excludes interest income and expense, income taxes, and net (loss) income attributable to the noncontrolling interest, all of which impact the Company's profitability, as well as depreciation and amortization related to the use of long term assets which benefit multiple periods. Sentry Technology Corporation believes that these limitations are compensated by providing Adjusted EBITDA only with GAAP net income (loss) and clearly identifying the difference between the two measures. Consequently, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA as defined by the Company may not be comparable with similarly named measures provided by other entities. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income or loss is included in the schedule below.
