(2) Represents growth versus the previous quarter.                            
(3) For a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss          
 calculated in accordance with GAAP, refer to Management's Discussion and   
 Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section within   
 Integra's financial statements posted on the Company's website.            
(4) Includes $0.1, $0.1, $0.6, and $0.5 million of non-recurring severance    
 expense for the quarter ended March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 
 31, 2012, respectively. Includes $1.3 and $0.1 million of non-recurring    
 severance expense for the year ended December 31, 2012 and 2011,           
(5) Represents both capital expenditures and new customer installation costs  
 as presented in Integra's Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows.           

The preliminary financial information set forth above is based on information available to Integra's management team as of the date of this release and remains subject to the completion of the annual audit currently in process by the Company's independent registered public accounting firm. Actual financial results may differ from these estimates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA and Unlevered Free Cash Flow are non-GAAP financial measures utilized by Integra's management to evaluate the Company's financial and operating performance. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for performance measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, excluding, when applicable, non-cash share-based compensation, reorganization expenses (inclusive of severance and relocation), gain or loss on extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on disposal of property and equipment and other non-operating income or expense. Integra's management believes that Adjusted EBITDA trends are a valuable indicator of the Company's relative performance to peers and of whether Integra is able to produce sufficient operating cash flow to fund working capital needs, to service debt obligations and to fund capital expenditures.

Unlevered Free Cash Flow is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less deferred customer acquisition costs and capital expenditures. Information on Unlevered Free Cash Flow has been included as Integra's management believes it is useful to investors to determine the Company's ability to generate cash flows to support its capital structure and fund other growth opportunities.
