^(1) EBITDA is calculated by the Company as net income before interest
expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. The Company uses
EBITDA as a key performance measure of results of operations for purposes of
evaluating performance internally. This non-GAAP measurement is not intended
to replace the presentation of our financial results in accordance with GAAP.
Rather, we believe the EBITDA calculation provides additional information to
investors and debt holders due to the fact that tax credits, tax rates and
other tax related items vary by company. Additionally, years of service for
fixed assets and amortizable assets are based on company judgment. Finally,
companies have several ways of raising capital which can affect interest
expense. We believe the presentation of EBITDA provides a meaningful measure
of performance exclusive of these unique items.
