1 Due to a change in fiscal year, three months of the period presented are unaudited, but were included in a longer audited period. As a result of our change in fiscal year-end from September 30 to December 31 in 2011 for both Rentech and Rentech Nitrogen, the Company’s independent accountants audited the period from October 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011. The unaudited amounts presented for the calendar year ended December 31, 2011 were derived by subtracting the unaudited results for the 3 months ended December 31, 2010 from the audited results for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2011, and adding the audited results of the three months ended December 31, 2011.

Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA is defined as net income plus interest expense and other financing costs, loss on debt extinguishment, loss on interest rate swaps, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization, net of interest income. EBITDA is used as a supplemental financial measure by management and by external users of the Company’s financial statements, such as investors and commercial banks, to assess:

  • the financial performance of the Company’s assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis; and
  • the Company’s operating performance and return on invested capital compared to those of other public companies, without regard to financing methods and capital structure.

EBITDA should not be considered an alternative to net income, operating income, net cash provided by operating activities or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA may have material limitations as a performance measure because it excludes items that are necessary elements of Rentech’s costs and operations. In addition, EBITDA presented by other companies may not be comparable to Rentech’s presentation, since each company may define these terms differently.
