|Non-GAAP Accounting and GAAP Reconciliation - Net Income and EBITDA|
|Note 11. Non-GAAP Accounting and GAAP Reconciliation - Net Income and EBITDA||
The Company reports all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company believes, however, that evaluating its ongoing operating results will be enhanced if it also discloses certain non-GAAP information because it is useful to understand OBITX’s performance that many investors believe may obscure OBITX’s ongoing operational results.
For example, OBITX uses non-GAAP net income (Adjusted Net Income), which excludes stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of intangible assets, costs from acquisitions, restructurings and other infrequently occurring items, non-cash deferred tax provision and litigation and related settlement costs. OBITX uses EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income, which adjusts net income (loss) for amortization of intangible assets, impairment of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, costs related to acquisitions, restructuring and other infrequently occurring items, settlement of litigation, gains or losses on dispositions, pro forma adjustments to exclude lines of business that have been acquired during the periods presented, current cash tax provision, depreciation, and interest expense (income), net.
The company believes that excluding certain costs from Adjusted Net Income and EBITDA provides a meaningful indication to investors of the expected on-going operating performance of the company. Whenever OBITX uses such historical non-GAAP financial measures, it provides a reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
The following tables reflect the non-GAAP Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.
