Non-GAAP Measurements

Earnings before interest, taxes and discontinued operations (“EBIT before discontinued operations”), Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and Comparable Income from continuing operations (total and per share) are measures commonly used by financial analysts in evaluating the performance of companies. EBIT before discontinued operations is calculated from net income by adding interest expense and income tax expense, and adding the loss or subtracting the income from discontinued operations, net of income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is calculated from EBIT before discontinued operations by: adding depreciation and amortization from continuing operations; adding the net unrealized loss or subtracting the net unrealized gain on foreign currency and bunker fuel hedges from continuing operations; adding the foreign currency loss or subtracting the foreign currency gain on the vessel obligations; adding the net unrealized loss or subtracting the net unrealized gain on foreign denominated instruments from continuing operations; adding share-based compensation expense from continuing operations; adding charges for restructuring and long-term receivables from continuing operations; adding ITOCHU transaction related costs; and subtracting the gain on asset sales. Comparable Income from continuing operations is calculated from income from continuing operations by: adding charges for restructuring and long-term receivables, net of income taxes; adding the net unrealized loss or subtracting the net unrealized gain on foreign currency and bunker fuel hedges, net of income taxes; adding the foreign currency loss or subtracting the foreign currency gain on the vessel obligations, net of income taxes; adding the net unrealized loss or subtracting the net unrealized gain on foreign denominated instruments, net of income taxes; adding share-based compensation expense, net of income taxes; adding ITOCHU transaction related costs, net of income taxes; and subtracting the gain on asset sales, net of income taxes. These items have been adjusted because management excludes these amounts when evaluating the performance of Dole. Net debt is calculated as total debt less cash.
