The financial results presented above are unaudited and preliminary estimates that (i) represent the most current information available to management as of the date of this press release, (ii) are subject to completion of financial closing and procedures that could result in significant changes to the estimated amounts, and (iii) do not present all information necessary for an understanding of Cambrex’s financial condition as of, and its results of operations for the quarter ended, September 30, 2019. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on such preliminary estimates.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures (“non-GAAP financial measures”). Other companies may have different definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, and as a result they may not be comparable with non-GAAP financial measures provided by other companies. 

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered alternatives to measurements required by U.S. GAAP, such as Operating profit, and should not be considered a measure of Cambrex’s liquidity. 

Cambrex uses these non-GAAP financial measures, among several other metrics, to assess and analyze its operational results and trends.  Cambrex also believes these measures are useful to investors because they are common operating performance metrics as well as metrics routinely used to assess potential enterprise value.  Cambrex has provided a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP amounts to non-GAAP amounts within this press release.
