Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR and CFFO are financial measures of operating performance that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful in identifying trends in day-to-day performance because they exclude items that are of little or no significance to operations and provide indicators to management of progress in achieving optimal operating performance. In addition, these measures are used by many research analysts and investors to evaluate the performance and the value of companies in the senior living industry. The Company strongly urges you to review the reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR, and the reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to CFFO, provided below, along with the Company’s consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, and cash flows. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA/EBITDAR and CFFO and provides other information about these non-GAAP measures in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
