The preliminary financial information set forth above is based on information available to Integra's management team as of the date of this release and remains subject to the completion of the annual audit currently in process by the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. Actual financial results may differ from these estimates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures utilized by Integra's management to evaluate the Company's financial and operating performance. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding, when applicable, non-cash share-based compensation, reorganization expenses (inclusive of severance and relocation), gain or loss on extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on disposal of property and equipment and other non-operating income or expense. Integra's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA trends are a valuable indicator of the Company's relative performance to peers and of whether Integra is able to produce sufficient operating cash flow to fund working capital needs, to service debt obligations and to fund capital expenditures.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less deferred customer acquisition costs and capital expenditures. Information on Unlevered Free Cash Flow has been included as Integra's management believes it is useful to investors to determine the Company's ability to generate cash flows to support its capital structure and fund other growth opportunities.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
