Viasystems Estimates Strong Fourth Quarter Net Sales And Operating Income

Stocks in this article: VIAS

Adjusted EBITDA has certain material limitations, primarily due to the exclusion of certain amounts that are material to the company’s consolidated results of operations, such as interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the Adjusted EBITDA calculations reported by other companies in the industry, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

The company uses Adjusted EBITDA to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding operating performance and profitability by excluding from EBITDA certain items that the company believes are not indicative of its ongoing operating results or will not impact future operating cash flows, which include restructuring and impairment charges, loss on early extinguishment of debt, stock compensation, costs associated with acquisitions and equity registrations, and other, net.
