Appendix: Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Slide 15

Non-GAAP Financial Measures This presentation includes references to non-GAAP revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBIDTA margin and free cash flow, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Each of these measures are not considered financial measures under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). The definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures are as follows: Non-GAAP revenue consists of GAAP revenue, as reported, and adds back recognized deferred revenue from acquired businesses and non-material consolidated affiliates that is eliminated for GAAP purposes due to purchase accounting adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss), as reported, and adjusts for: acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments; depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense; restructuring and other costs; non-cash asset and long-term investment impairment charges; gain on sale of business, net; interest expense and other, net; equity in net earnings of unconsolidated investments; and tax (benefit) provision. Free cash flow consists of GAAP cash flows provided by operating activities in the applicable period, net of capital expenditures and capitalized software costs. Management also believes that non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations. Acquisition accounting adjustments made in accordance with GAAP can make it difficult to make meaningful comparisons of the underlying operations of the business without considering the non-GAAP adjustments provided and discussed herein. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting, as it believes that these measures are indicative of core operating results. In addition, management may use non-GAAP measures to measure achievement under Allscripts stock and cash incentive compensation plans. Note, however, that non-GAAP revenue and Adjusted EBITDA are performance measures only, and they do not provide any measure of cash flow or liquidity. Allscripts considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after capital expenditures and capitalized software costs. Free cash flow provides management and investors a valuable measure to determine the quantity of capital generated that can be deployed to create additional shareholder value by a variety of means. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Allscripts results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures with GAAP financial measures contained in the Appendix to this presentation.   For the purpose of providing financial guidance, the company does not reconcile non-GAAP revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin or free cash flow to the corresponding GAAP financial measures. Allscripts does not provide guidance for the various reconciling items since certain items that impact these measures are either outside of its control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.
