The second phase, which is currently underway, is right sizing our operational cost structure to ensure it is aligned with the current business. We are confident that we are on the right path to best position our business for 2020,” said Karen Murray, CEO of Sequential.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
This press release contains historical and projected measures of Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, non-GAAP net (loss) income from continuing operations and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations as net income from continuing operations attributable to Sequential Brands Group, Inc. and Subsidiaries, excluding provision for (benefit from) income taxes, interest income or expense, non-cash compensation, depreciation and amortization, deal advisory costs, debt refinancing costs, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments to equity securities, loss on sale of assets, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments on interest rate swaps, other non-cash items and severance. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share from continuing operations are non-GAAP financial measures which represent net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Sequential Brands Group, Inc. and Subsidiaries, excluding deal advisory costs, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments to stock-based compensation provided to non-employees, debt refinancing costs, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments to equity securities, loss on sale of assets, non-cash mark-to-market adjustments on interest rate swaps, other non-cash items and adjustments to taxes. These non-GAAP metrics are an alternative to the information calculated under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), as provided in the reports the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission, may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies and should only be used in conjunction with the Company’s results reported according to GAAP. Any financial measure other than those prepared in accordance with GAAP should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. We consider these measures to be useful measures of our ongoing financial performance because they adjust for certain costs and other events that the Company believes are not representative of its core licensing business. See below for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP metrics to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
