These include non-GAAP EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT.EBITDA represents earnings before interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense and depreciation and amortization.EBIT represents earnings before interest expense and income tax (benefit) expense.We define Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBIT as EBITDA and EBIT, respectively, excluding the effects of impairment, restructuring costs, certain pension plan expenses, OPEB curtailment gains, purchase accounting inventory adjustments, certain share based compensation, discontinued operations, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt, major scheduled turnaround expenses, FIFO adjustments and unrealized gains/losses on energy segment derivatives and certain other non-operational charges.We present EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT on a consolidated basis and attributable to Icahn Enterprises net of the effect of non-controlling interests.We conduct substantially all of our operations through subsidiaries.The operating results of our subsidiaries may not be sufficient to make distributions to us.In addition, our subsidiaries are not obligated to make funds available to us for payment of our indebtedness, payment of distributions on our depositary units or otherwise, and distributions and intercompany transfers from our subsidiaries to us may be restricted by applicable law or covenants contained in debt agreements and other agreements to which these subsidiaries currently may be subject or into which they may enter into in the future.The terms of any borrowings of our subsidiaries or other entities in which we own equity may restrict dividends, distributions or loans to us. We believe that providing EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT to investors has economic substance as these measures provide important supplemental information of our performance to investors and permits investors and management to evaluate the core operating performance of our business without regard to interest, taxes and depreciation and amortization and the effects of impairment, restructuring costs, certain pension plan expenses, OPEB curtailment gains, purchase accounting inventory adjustments, certain share based compensation, discontinued operations, gains/losses on extinguishment of debt, major scheduled turnaround expenses, FIFO adjustments and unrealized gains/losses on energy segment derivatives and certain other non-operational charges.Additionally, we believe this information is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies that have issued debt.Management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our operating results, as well as in planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods.Adjusting earnings for these charges allows investors to evaluate our performance from period to period, as well as our peers, without the effects of certain items that may vary depending on accounting methods and the book value of assets.Additionally, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT present meaningful measures of corporate performance exclusive of our capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired and financed. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP.For example, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT: *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; and *do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on our debt. Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized often will have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements.Other companies in the industries in which we operate may calculate EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.In addition, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT do not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT are not measurements of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.Given these limitations, we rely primarily on our U.S. GAAP results and use EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, EBIT and Adjusted EBIT only as a supplemental measure of our financial performance. Use of Indicative Net Asset Value Data The Company uses the indicative net asset value of the depository units as an additional method for considering the value of the units, and we believe that this information can be helpful to investors.Please note, however, that the indicative net asset value of the units does not represent the market price at which the units trade.Accordingly, data regarding indicative net asset value is of limited use and should not be considered in isolation. The Company's depository units are not redeemable, which means that investors have no right or ability to obtain from the Company the indicative net asset value of units that they own.Units may be bought and sold on The NASDAQ Global Select Market at prevailing market prices.Those prices may be higher or lower than the indicative net asset value of the units as calculated by Management. See below for more information on how we calculate the indicative net asset value of the Company's depository units.
