Analysis of Results and General Business Commentary:

Beginning in 2018 newly issued accounting rules required that all companies record any unrealized losses or gains from equity investments in the income statement. Therefore, Paragon's investment gains or losses reflect realized gains or losses in the Company's investment portfolio and unrealized gains or losses from equity securities.

Paragon utilizes pre-tax operating income, a 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.
