Non-GAAP Financial Measures Adjusted EBITDA is not a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) measure and is not intended to be used in lieu of a GAAP presentation of net income/loss. Adjusted EBITDA is presented in this Press Release because SemGroup believes it provides additional information with respect to its performance. Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, adjusted for selected items that SemGroup believes impact the comparability of financial results between reporting periods. Although SemGroup presents selected items that it considers in evaluating its performance, you should also be aware that the items presented do not represent all items that affect comparability between the periods presented. Variations in SemGroup's operating results are also caused by changes in volumes, prices, exchange rates, mechanical interruptions and numerous other factors. These types of variances are not separately identified in this Press Release. Because all companies do not use identical calculations, SemGroup's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from similarly titled measures of other companies, thereby diminishing its utility. Reconciliations of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented are included in the tables at the end of this Press Release.
