Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition
On January 22, 2019, Clarus Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing preliminary results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2018 (the “Press Release”). A copy of the Press Release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Press Release contains the non-GAAP measure adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, other income or expense, depreciation and amortization (“adjusted EBITDA”). The Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP measure, i.e.: adjusted EBITDA, provides useful information for the understanding of its ongoing operations and enables investors to focus on period-over-period operating performance, and thereby enhances the user's overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance relative to past performance and provides, along with the nearest GAAP measures, a baseline for modeling future earnings expectations. The Company cautions that non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company's reported GAAP results. Additionally, the Company notes that there can be no assurance that the above referenced non-GAAP financial measure is comparable to similarly titled financial measures used by other publicly traded companies.
The information in Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the Press Release attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
