assumptions and expectations. As a result, there can be no guarantee or
assurance that these assumptions and expectations will in fact occur.
The forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties
that may cause actual results to materially differ from those contained

facilities and that of our customers or suppliers; (11) our dependence
on the automotive and heavy truck industries, which are highly cyclical;
(12) the dependence of the automotive industry on consumer spending,
which is subject to the impact of domestic and international economic
conditions affecting car and light truck production; (13) regulations
and policies regarding international trade; (14) financial and business

the fiscal year ended October 31, 2017 and "Part II, Item 1A. Risk
Factors" in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended
July 31, 2018 for a more complete discussion of these risks and

actual results to differ materially from those reflected in the
forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements reflect
management's analysis only as of the date of this Press Release. We
undertake no obligation to publicly revise these forward-looking

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes the following non-GAAP financial measures:
"EBITDA," "adjusted EBITDA ," "adjusted EBITDA margin" and "adjusted
earnings per share." We define EBITDA as net income before interest,
taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define adjusted EBITDA as net
income before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and other
adjustments as described in the reconciliations accompanying this press
release. We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA divided by
net revenues as shown in the reconciliations accompanying this press
release. Adjusted earnings per share excludes certain income and expense
items as shown in the reconciliation accompanying this press release. We
use EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and adjusted
earnings per share as supplements to information provided in accordance
with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in evaluating our
business and they are included in this press release because they are
principal factors upon which our management assesses performance.
Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most
directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with
GAAP are set forth below. The non-GAAP measures presented in this
release are not measures of performance under GAAP. These measures
should not be considered as alternatives for the most directly
comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Other
companies in our industry may define these non-GAAP measures differently
than we do and, as a result, these non-GAAP measures may not be
comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies; and
certain of our non-GAAP financial measures exclude financial information
that some may consider important in evaluating our performance. Given
the inherent uncertainty regarding special items and other expenses in
any future period, a reconciliation of forward-looking financial
measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated
and presented in accordance with GAAP is not feasible. The magnitude of
these items, however, may be significant.
