Reconciliation of Net Loss to Adjusted EBITDA
In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), our earnings release contains the non-GAAP financial measure "Adjusted EBITDA."
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance because Adjusted EBITDA is a commonly used financial analysis tool for measuring and comparing companies in the Company's industry in areas of operating performance.
Management believes that the disclosure of Adjusted EBITDA offers an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliation to GAAP net loss, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company's business.
We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. We defined Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus (i) interest expense, net, (ii) provision for taxes, and (iii) depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing operating performance. These further adjustments are itemized below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons we consider them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same or similar to some of the adjustments in the presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items.
