Management believes that free cash flow provides useful information to investors regarding the Company's ability to generate cash without external financings. Management uses free cash flow to help gauge the resources available for strategic opportunities such as making acquisitions, investing in the business and strengthening the Company's balance sheet, and uses this measure in making operating decisions, allocating financial resources and for budget planning purposes. Free cash flow does not, however, take into account the Company's debt service requirements and other non-discretionary expenditures and therefore is not necessarily indicative of amounts of cash that may be available for discretionary uses. Free cash flow should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, cash flow from operations, net earnings and other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
