Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”), management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures. For example, Adjusted EBITDA, which represents net income before interest (income)/expense, net and other non-operating expenses, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration in connection with business acquisitions and provision for litigation loss/(income) and provision for litigation loss – cost of goods sold, is useful as an additional measure of operating performance, and particularly as a measure of comparative operating performance from period to period, as it is reflective of changes in pricing decisions, cost controls and other factors that affect operating performance, and it removes the effect of our capital structure, asset base, income taxes and interest income and expense. Our management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and financial projections. In addition, for the periods ended December 31, 2013 and for other comparative periods, we are presenting non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which represent net income and diluted earnings per share, respectively, before provision for litigation loss/(income) and provision for litigation loss – cost of goods sold, net of the tax effects of such provisions. We believe these non-GAAP measures are also useful indicators of our operating performance, and particularly as additional measures of comparative operative performance from period to period as they remove the effects of litigation, and specifically the litigation brought against us by DePuy Synthes Products, LLC and Sabatino Bianco, in which jury verdicts were returned in June 2013 and January 2014, respectively, which we believe are not reflective of underlying business trends. We also define the non-GAAP measure of Free Cash Flow as the net cash flows provided by operating activities less the cash impact of purchases of property and equipment. We believe that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating our overall financial performance for comparative periods as it facilitates an assessment of funds available to satisfy current and future obligations and fund acquisitions.

Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share and Free Cash Flow are not calculated in conformity with U.S. GAAP within the meaning of Item 10 of Regulation S-K. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures do not include certain expenses that may be necessary to evaluate our liquidity or operating results. Our definitions of Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share and Free Cash Flow may differ from that of other companies and therefore may not be comparable.
