Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The information provided in this press release includes certain non-GAAP
financial measures as defined under Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
rules. A reconciliation of adjusted income attributable to Gentiva
shareholders and Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable
GAAP measure, is not accessible on a forward-looking basis without
unreasonable effort due to the inherent difficulties in predicting the costs
of restructuring, legal settlements and merger and acquisition activities and
the impact of any future acquisitions or divestitures, which can fluctuate
significantly and may have a significant impact on net income.
