Five Star Quality Care, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Year End 2011 Results


(in thousands, except per share data)

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBITDA, and EBITDA excluding certain items are not financial measures determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. We consider EBITDA and EBITDA excluding certain items to be meaningful disclosures because we believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures may help investors to gain a better understanding of changes in our operating results, and may also help investors who wish to make comparisons between us and other companies on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management to evaluate our financial performance and for comparing our performance over time to the performance of our competitors. EBITDA and EBITDA excluding certain items as presented may not, however, be comparable to amounts calculated by other companies. This information should not be considered as an alternative to income from continuing operations, net income from continuing operations, net income or any other financial operating or performance measure established by GAAP. The reconciliation of income from continuing operations to EBITDA and EBITDA excluding certain items is as follows:
