Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and adjusted EBITDA are used and provided by Horizon as non-GAAP financial measures. Horizon provides certain other financial measures such as adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted gross profit and gross profit ratio, adjusted operating and other expenses and adjusted cash from operations, each of which include adjustments to GAAP figures. Adjustments to Horizon's GAAP figures as well as EBITDA exclude acquisition transaction related expenses, loss on debt extinguishment, as well as non-cash items such as share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, royalty accretion, non-cash interest expense, and other non-cash adjustments. Certain other special items or substantive events may also be included in the non-GAAP adjustments periodically when their magnitude is significant within the periods incurred. Horizon believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP figures, can enhance an overall understanding of Horizon's financial performance. The non-GAAP financial measures are included with the intent of providing investors with a more complete understanding of the company's historical and expected 2015 financial results and trends. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among the indicators Horizon's management uses for planning and forecasting purposes and measuring the Company's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Horizon has not provided reconciliation of an expected adjusted EBITDA outlook to an expected net income (loss) outlook because certain items that are a component of net income (loss) cannot be reasonably projected, either due to the significant impact of changes in Horizon's stock price on share-based compensation, the variability associated with acquisition related expenses due to timing and other factors.
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements related to Horizon's expected full-year 2015 net sales and adjusted EBITDA guidance and other statements that are not historical facts. These forward-looking statements are based on Horizon's current expectations and inherently involve significant risks and uncertainties.

Horizon Pharma undertakes no duty or obligation to update any forward-looking statements contained in this presentation as a result of new information.
