Cyalume's President & CEO, Zivi Nedivi, stated, "We are pleased to again report improved performance over the prior year, on both the top and bottom lines. Along with the increase in revenues, helped considerably by the start-up of the M1110 training ammunition contract this year, we also experienced higher product margins in other parts of our business. We expect both revenues and product margins to again improve over the prior year when we report our Q4 results."

Dale Baker, Chief Operating Officer, noted, "Cost reductions in both production and administrative areas significantly contributed to our 90% plus increase in EBITDA year over year. While ensuring we continue to operate cost effectively we have recently added key executives to strengthen our team that we anticipate will make key contributions as we continue to expand our presence in the various Specialty Chemistry markets. These team members will continue to build on our pattern of improved performance, as well as contributing to our future innovation and new product growth plans."

Adjusted EBITDA (a Non-GAAP Financial Measure)
Cyalume defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, foreign currency gains or losses and certain other income or expense items. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for establishing internal budgets, goals and certain performance bonuses. Internal financial reports, including those provided to the Board of Directors, focus on Adjusted EBITDA. Since Adjusted EBITDA is not necessarily an indicator of overall cash flows of Cyalume, management reviews capital budgets and cash flow forecasts in parallel with Adjusted EBITDA analysis. Because Adjusted EBITDA eliminates interest expense, income taxes and depreciation, amortization, non-cash stock-based compensation, foreign currency gains or losses and one-time income or expense items, Cyalume considers this financial measure an important indicator of Cyalume's liquidity, operational strength and performance. Investors may find Adjusted EBITDA useful as it illustrates underlying operating trends in Cyalume's business. In addition, components of Adjusted EBITDA are a key component in the determination of Cyalume's compliance with certain covenants under its credit agreements. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for net income, cash flows, or other consolidated income or cash flow data presented in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of our liquidity or financial condition. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure determined in accordance with GAAP and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, Adjusted EBITDA as discussed may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for the periods presented.

Net income (loss) excluding "other non-operating income" (a Non-GAAP Financial Measure)
Cyalume believes the Non-GAAP Financial Measure of Net Income (Loss) excluding "other non-operating income" to be meaningful as it serves to exclude two significant non-cash, non-operating line items which may otherwise obscure financial results from actual Company operations.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net income (loss) excluding "other non-operating income" to net income (loss) for the periods presented.
