Avatech Solutions Reports Fourth Consecutive Quarter of Profitability and Net Income of $3.1 Million in Fiscal 2008

Adjusted EBITDA is used by management, analysts, investors and other interested parties in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as the calculation of EBITDA as adjusted eliminates the effect of financing, income taxes, stock-based compensation costs, the accounting effects of capital spending and certain other merger related expenses, which items may vary from different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

Avatech believes this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of its core operating results. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. The non-GAAP measure included in this press release has been reconciled to the GAAP results in the accompanying table.
