Michael Durham, President and CEO, Mark McKinnies, Senior Vice President and CFO, and Graham Mattison, Vice President of Investor Relations, of Advanced Emissions Solutions, Inc. (ADES) will be participating in the 16th Annual Needham Growth Conference in New York City on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. A copy of the slides to be used at this conference is currently available via the Investor Information section of ADESs website at www.advancedemissionssolutions.com. A copy of the materials is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
In the January 2014 Investor Presentation, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures, defined as adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross margin, that exclude coal sales and raw coal purchases and retained tonnage operating expenses. Definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures, including reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP financial measures, are contained in the Investor Presentation. These non-GAAP financial measures are used to provide investors with greater transparency with respect to the effect on gross margin from the operation of certain Refined Coal facilities by Clean Coal Solutions, LLC, a 42.5%-owned, consolidated subsidiary of ADA-ES, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, for its own account. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information for investors regarding the performance of the Companys business and the effect on gross profit and gross margin of the operation of Refined Coal facilities by Clean Coal Solutions, LLC for its own account. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation, as a substitute for, or as superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the Companys financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
On January 7, 2014, we issued a press release announcing ADESs scheduled participation at this conference. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.2 to this report.
