Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which CPSI defines as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of capital assets. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is net cash provided by operating activities. The Company believes free cash flow is a useful measure of performance and uses this measure as an indication of the financial resources of the Company and its ability to generate cash.
