Analysis of Results:

Investment gains or losses reflect realized gains or losses in the company's investment portfolio. Other income in 2014 reflects dividend income on the investments.

Paragon utilizes pre-tax operating income, non-GAAP financial measure, in its analysis of financial results. Paragon Technologies defines pre-tax operating earnings outside of the investment gains/losses of the Company, and interest expense.
