1 Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are
non-GAAP financial measures. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This earnings release includes a presentation of Pro Forma Adjusted
EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA
is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense and interest
income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, exclusive of
discontinued operations, further adjusted to add back certain non-cash
charges, fees under the management agreement with the Company's equity
sponsor, proceeds of business insurance, transaction bonuses, certain
expenses incurred under indemnification or refunding provisions for
acquisitions, severance costs and relocation costs and deductions
attributable to minority interests, non-cash compensation expense,
income tax credits to the extent not netted, non-cash income and
interest income and gains on interest rate hedges, unusual or
non-recurring income or gains, unusual or non-recurring losses,
operating losses from new starts, business optimization expenses,
further adjusted for EBITDA of acquired businesses on a pro forma basis
and EBITDA of sold businesses. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is similar to
the definition of "Consolidated EBITDA" in the Company's senior credit
agreement, except that (i) it does not include an adjustment for the
difference between the cash basis and accrual basis of professional and
general liability, or PL/GL, charges and (ii) the adjustment for
operating losses from new starts is not capped at $8.0 million.
This earnings release also includes a presentation of Adjusted EBITDA
Margin, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is
defined as (i) Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, less the pro forma portion of
EBITDA relating to acquired businesses, divided by (ii) consolidated
revenue, less revenue related to unprofitable new starts. These
adjustments are made to better reflect the performance of the Company's
core business and acquired companies, excluding new starts that are
Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are presented
because they are important measures used by management to assess
financial performance, and management believes they provide a more
transparent view of the Company's operating performance and operating
trends. The Company's business strategy has been to pursue growth
primarily through acquisitions and new program starts and, more
recently, to improve margin. As part of this strategy, in recent periods
the Company's spending on new starts has increased substantially. As a
result, the Company believes its presentation of Pro Forma Adjusted
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provides additional information
investors can use to assess the Company's progress on its goals. The
Company also believes these measures are useful to investors in
assessing financial performance because these non-GAAP financial
measures are similar to the metrics used by investors and other
interested parties when comparing companies in the Company's industry
that have different capital structures, debt levels and/or tax rates.
Furthermore, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA closely correlates to the EBITDA
measure used in the Company's senior credit agreement. Reconciliations
of net income (loss) to Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
Margin data are presented within the tables below.
Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not represent
and should not be considered alternatives to net income or cash flows
from operations, as determined by accounting principles generally
accepted in the United States, or GAAP. While Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA
and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are frequently used as measures of financial
performance and the ability to meet debt service requirements, they are
not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other
companies due to potential inconsistencies in the methods of
calculation. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin should
be reviewed in conjunction with the Company's financial statements filed
with the SEC.
