This release presents income statement line items down to income before non-controlling interest and income taxes for the fourth quarter and full year of fiscal 2010 on an aggregated basis that adds the results of the Predecessor with those of the Successor, which is not a presentation in accordance with GAAP but which the Company believes provides useful information that facilitates the comparability of its results for these periods.
This release also presents adjusted pro forma net income, which as defined by the Company represents net income for the Successor and Predecessor entities before non-controlling interest and after pro forma corporate income tax expense applied at an assumed 38.0% rate, which includes a provision for U.S. federal income taxes, assumes the highest statutory rates apportioned to each state, local and/or foreign jurisdiction and assumes the full exchange of New Class A Units of DynaVox Holdings into Class A Common Stock. Adjusted pro forma net income per diluted share consists of adjusted pro forma net income, divided by the aggregate number of the Company's Class A Common Stock outstanding, assuming full exchange of New Class A Units of DynaVox Holdings into Class A Common Stock of DynaVox Inc. and giving effect to the dilutive impact, if any, of stock options and restricted stock awards.
This release also presents Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company as net income before interest income, interest expense, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and other adjustments noted in the table below.
Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted pro forma net income and adjusted pro forma net income per share, however, do not represent and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, net income per share or cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP, and our calculations thereof may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other companies.
