(1) EBITDA represents earnings before interest expense, income taxes,
depreciation and amortization. Our management believes EBITDA is useful in
evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in
our industry because the calculation of EBITDA generally eliminates the
effects of financing and income taxes and the accounting effects of capital
spending and acquisitions. We believe EBITDA is useful to investors to assist
them in getting a more accurate picture of our results from operations.

However, EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under GAAP and when analyzing
our operating performance, readers should use EBITDA in addition to, and not
as an alternative for, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP.
Because not all companies use identical calculations, our presentation of
EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our
management's discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash
requirements such as tax and debt service payments. The amounts shown for
EBITDA also differ from the amounts calculated under similarly titled
definitions in our debt instruments, which are further adjusted to reflect
certain other cash and non-cash charges and are used to determine compliance
with financial covenants and our ability to engage in certain activities, such
as incurring additional debt and making certain restricted payments.
