DEFINITIONS

Adjusted EBITDA

We use the term Adjusted EBITDA throughout this earnings release. Adjusted EBITDA, as we define it, is a non-GAAP measure. We define consolidated Adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to Hyatt Hotels Corporation plus our pro-rata share of unconsolidated hospitality ventures Adjusted EBITDA based on our ownership percentage of each venture, adjusted to exclude the following items:

  • equity earnings (losses) from unconsolidated hospitality ventures;
  • loss on sale of real estate;
  • asset impairments;
  • other income (loss), net;
  • net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests;
  • depreciation and amortization;
  • interest expense; and
  • (provision) benefit for income taxes.

We calculate consolidated Adjusted EBITDA by adding the Adjusted EBITDA of each of our reportable segments to corporate and other Adjusted EBITDA.
