Adjusted EBITDA

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income (loss) from continuing operations, the most directly comparable financial measure as measured in accordance with GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA:

Three Months Ended June 30, Six Months Ended June 30,
2022 2021 2022 2021
Net income (loss) from continuing operations $ 714 $ 11,649 $ 2,728 $ 12,039
Interest expense 69 58 128 116
Income taxes 352 (11,316 ) (104 ) (11,314 )
Depreciation and amortization 50 22 94 42
Stock-based compensation 220 154 417 306
(Gain) loss on equity method investments (17 ) 100 (269 ) 94
Adjusted EBITDA $ 1,388 $ 667 $ 2,994 $ 1,283

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations, excluding the impact of interest expense (net of interest income), income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, and gain or loss on equity method investments.

We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate financial performance, analyze the underlying trends in our business and establish operational goals and forecasts that are used when allocating resources. We expect to compute Adjusted EBITDA consistently using the same methods each period.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure because it permits investors to better understand changes over comparative periods by providing financial results that are unaffected by certain non-cash items that are not considered by management to be indicative of our operational performance.

While we believe that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors when evaluating our business, it is not prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and therefore should be considered supplemental in nature. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute, for other financial performance measures presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA may differ from similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
