Non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by management, analysts, investors and
other interested parties in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other
companies in our industry, as the calculation of non-GAAP net income eliminates the effect of
stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets and goodwill impairment and EBITDA and
Adjusted EBITDA further eliminates the effect of financing, income taxes, the accounting effects of
capital spending, certain other merger related expenses and certain other expenses, which items may
vary from different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.
PFSweb believes these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors
by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of its core operating results. These
measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should
not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures included
in this press release have been reconciled to the GAAP results in the attached tables.
Merchandise sales represent the estimated value of all fulfillment activity that flows through
PFSweb including whether or not PFSweb is the seller of the merchandise or records the full amount
of such sales on its financial statements, excluding service fee revenues that PFSweb might
recognize for the underlying sales transactions. PFSweb uses merchandise sales as an operating
metric to allow investors to gain a more thorough understanding of its business and business
volume, in addition to GAAP net revenue.
