Non-GAAP Measures

Adjusted EBITDA and Segment EBITDA, as used in this news release and the conference call to review first quarter results, are non-GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA is earnings before interest, other income, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted for certain items that we believe hinder comparison of the performance of our business either period-over-period or with other businesses, including non-controlling interests, management fees, restructuring costs, professional fees and transaction costs. Items are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA because they are individually or collectively material items that we do not consider to be representative of the performance of our business during the periods presented. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA enhances an investor's understanding of our performance.

Segment EBITDA is calculated by adding back depreciation and amortization expense to segment operating income and subtracting non-controlling interests in EBITDA for each segment. We measure and evaluate our reportable segments based on segment operating income, which is consistent with our chief operating decision maker's assessment of segment performance. Segment EBITDA does not purport to be an alternative to segment operating income.

Adjusted EBITDA and Segment EBITDA are considered non-GAAP measures because they exclude amounts that are included in, or include amounts that are excluded from, the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP or are calculated using financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Segment EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations include, but are not limited to the fact that Adjusted EBITDA and Segment EBITDA:

  • do not reflect our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs;
  • do not reflect the interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary, to service interest or principal payments on our debt;
  • do not reflect any cash requirements that would be required for replacement of assets that are being depreciated or amortized; and
  • may exclude items that reflect cash payments that were made, or will in the future be made.

The non-GAAP financial measures used by us may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies, which limits their usefulness as comparative measures.

For reconciliations of Adjusted EBITDA and Segment EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, see "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures" in the accompanying tables.
