Sally Beauty Announces Preliminary Results For The Fiscal Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

Use Of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company occasionally utilizes financial measures and terms not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (‘‘GAAP’’) in order to provide investors with an alternative method for assessing our operating results in a manner that enables investors to more thoroughly evaluate our current performance as compared to past performance. We also believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a more informed baseline for modeling the Company’s future financial performance. Our management uses these non-GAAP measures for the same purpose. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. We have provided tables to reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures utilized to GAAP financial measures.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define the measure Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP Net Earnings before depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation, interest expense (which includes the loss on extinguishment of indebtedness), and income taxes. Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure in the evaluation of our businesses and believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a meaningful measure of our ability to meet our future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements.

Adjusted Net Earnings

This measure consists of GAAP Net Earnings, which is then adjusted solely for the purpose of excluding non-cash interest expense (which includes the loss on extinguishment of indebtedness). We believe excluding non-cash interest expense from our GAAP Net Earnings provides investors with a better depiction of the Company’s core operating results and provides a more informed baseline for modeling future earnings expectations.

Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share (Adjusted EPS)

We define this non-GAAP financial measure as the portion of the Company’s GAAP Net Earnings assigned to each share of stock, excluding non-cash interest expense (which includes the loss on extinguishment of indebtedness). We believe excluding non-cash interest expense from our GAAP Net Earnings provides investors with a better depiction of the Company’s core operating results and provides a more informed baseline for modeling future earnings expectations.
