Invacare Corporation Announces Financial Results For The Quarter And Year Ended December 31, 2012

(a) Adjusted net earnings (loss) per share (EPS) is a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as adjusted net earnings (loss) (b) from continuing and/or discontinued operations (as noted) divided by adjusted weighted average shares outstanding - assuming dilution, excluding the dilutive impact of the convertible debt. The dilutive effect of shares necessary to settle the conversion spread on the Company's convertible debentures is included in the calculation of GAAP earnings per share. The share adjustment is 0 shares for the three and twelve months ended 2012 and 0 and 154,000 shares for the three and twelve months ended 2011. The Company excludes the shares from the calculation of adjusted earnings per share, as it intends to satisfy any conversion spread using cash, as opposed to stock. It should be noted that the Company's definition of Adjusted EPS may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies because not all companies and analysts calculate Adjusted EPS in the same manner. The Company believes that these types of exclusions are also recognized by the industry in which it operates as relevant in computing Adjusted EPS as a supplementary non-GAAP financial measure used by financial analysts and others in the Company's industry to meaningfully evaluate operating performance. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation” table included after the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations included in this press release.

(b) Adjusted net earnings (loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as net earnings (loss) from continuing and/or discontinued operations (as noted) excluding the impact of restructuring charges ($7.7 million and $11.4 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $9.1 million and $10.9 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011), amortization of the convertible debt discount recorded in interest ($0.1 million and $0.6 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $0.1 million and $1.6 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011), asset write-downs related to goodwill and intangibles ($0.8 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $49.5 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011), loss on debt extinguishment including debt finance charges and fees ($0.0 and $0.3 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to $0.0 million and $24.2 million pre-tax for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011), a discrete fourth quarter tax expense related to prior years for a foreign tax matter under audit ($0.2 million and $9.3 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012), a one-time benefit as a result of a tax settlement in Germany ($4.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011) and changes in tax valuation allowances. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation” table included after the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations included in this press release.

(c) Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as net cash provided (used) by operating activities, excluding net cash flow impact related to restructuring activities, less purchases of property and equipment, net of proceeds from sales of property and equipment. Management believes that this financial measure provides meaningful information for evaluating the overall financial performance of the Company and its ability to repay debt or make future investments (including, for example, acquisitions). This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation” table included after the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets included in this press release.

(d) Adjusted EBITDA (adjusted earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is a non-GAAP financial measure which is defined as net earnings (loss) from continuing and/or discontinued operations (as noted) excluding the following: interest expense, income taxes (benefit), depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude restructuring charges as adjusted for debt covenant limitations regarding cash charges ($2.6 million for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012), amortization of the convertible debt discount (recorded in interest expense), bank fees, stock option expense, asset write-downs for goodwill and intangible assets and loss on debt extinguishment including debt finance charges and fees. It should be noted that the Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures disclosed by other companies because not all companies and analysts calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner. The Company believes that these types of exclusions are also recognized by the industry in which it operates as relevant in computing Adjusted EBITDA as a supplementary non-GAAP financial measure widely used by financial analysts and others in the Company's industry to meaningfully evaluate a company's future operating performance and cash flow. Moreover, the definition of Adjusted EBITDA as presented herein also may be useful in reflecting certain debt covenant measurements under the Company's senior secured credit facility, although, in particular, a larger acquisition or divestiture during a given year may make it difficult to replicate the exact calculations for the covenants. In addition to these recognized purposes, the Company also uses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the Company's performance. This financial measure is reconciled to the related GAAP financial measure in the “Reconciliation” table included after the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations included in this press release.
