This release contains information about our management’s view of our future expectations, plans and prospects that constitute forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from historical results or those indicated by these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of factors. For example, to expand our Internet technology solutions offerings, we may need to license or acquire other technologies or businesses. Our business depends in part on our ability to provide an increasing selection of value-added Internet technology applications and solutions, many of which we do not currently possess but plan to develop internally or to provide or obtain through agreements with third parties, and our business will be harmed if we are unable to develop or offer additional Internet technology applications and solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner. We may find that it is difficult to identify or conclude such acquisitions on favorable terms, or to integrate future technology or business acquisitions, which could limit our growth, disrupt our business and adversely affect our operating results. In addition, if we are unable to expand or appropriately enhance or modify our Internet technology solutions offerings quickly and efficiently, our business and operating results will be adversely affected. Other factors that may cause actual results to differ from historical results or those indicated include, but are not limited to, risks and uncertainties associated with our financial condition, our ability to sell our products, our ability to compete with competitors and the growth of the Internet as a business tool for small businesses, , and those included in our annual report on Form 10-KSB, as well as other documents we periodically file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement Innuity's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP and to provide clarity internally and externally, Innuity uses net loss before non-cash items which is a non-GAAP measure of financial performance. Net loss before non-cash items is calculated by reducing net losses computed in accordance with GAAP for non-cash expenses (depreciation and amortization, share-based payments, expensing of prepaid royalties, accretion of debt discount and provisions for bad debts). This measure, among other things, is one of the primary metrics by which Innuity evaluates the performance of its business and believes this measure is useful to investors because it represents Innuity’s cash used in operations without adjusting for changes in assets and liabilities.Innuity’s management believes that investors should have access to, and Innuity is obligated to provide, the same set of tools that management uses in analyzing the company's results. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. Non-GAAP terms, as defined by Innuity, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of Innuity’s GAAP net losses to net losses before non-cash items for the nine months ended September 30, 2006, and for each three-month periods in the nine months then ended is included with the financial statement tables.
