Willdan defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) plus net interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, goodwill impairment, lease abandonment expense, net and other non-recurring income and expense items occurring in such period. Willdan's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from those of many companies reporting similarly named measures. This measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, such as net income. Willdan believes Adjusted EBITDA enables management to separate non-recurring income and expense items from its results of operations to provide a more normalized and consistent view of operating performance on a period-to-period basis. Willdan uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its performance for, among other things, budgeting, forecasting and incentive compensation purposes. Willdan also believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors, research analysts, investment bankers and lenders because it removes the impact of certain non-recurring income and expense items from its operational results, which may facilitate comparison of its results from period to period. Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to income from operations or net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure. Adjusted EBITDA increased $7.3 million to $2.6 million for the nine months ended September 27, 2013 from $(4.7) million for the comparable period last year. The following is a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA: Nine Months Ended September 27, September 28, In thousands 2013 2012 Net income (loss) $ 1,929 $ (17,600 ) Interest income (8 ) (4 ) Interest expense 86 80 Income tax expense (benefit) 85 (2,991 ) (Gain) loss on sale of assets (3 ) 17 Depreciation and amortization 452 569 Impairment of goodwill — 15,208 Lease abandonment expense, net 13 27 Adjusted EBITDA $ 2,554 $ (4,694 ) Liquidity and Capital Resources Willdan had $10.4 million in cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, at September 27, 2013.
