West Corporation Reports First Quarter 2013 Results And Declares Quarterly Dividend

Pro forma Adjusted Net Income represents Adjusted Net Income after giving effect to pro forma adjusted interest expense. Pro forma adjusted interest expense reflects the impact of lower debt balances and lower interest rates post IPO. This includes the savings expected for the full quarter from the anticipated redemption of the $450 million senior subordinated notes and the savings for the full quarter associated with the pricing amendment to the senior secured term loan facilities as if these transactions had been completed January 1, 2013.

Free Cash Flow Reconciliation

The Company believes Free Cash Flow provides a relevant measure of liquidity and a useful basis for assessing the Company's ability to fund its activities, including the financing of acquisitions, debt service, stock repurchases and distribution of earnings to shareholders. Free Cash Flow is calculated as Cash Flows from Operations less cash Capital Expenditures. Free Cash Flow is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for Cash Flows from Operations or other liquidity measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Free Cash Flow, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Set forth below is a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow to Cash Flows from Operations.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

The common definition of EBITDA is "Earnings Before Interest Expense, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization." In evaluating liquidity and performance, the Company uses earnings before interest expense, share based compensation, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and one-time IPO-related expenses, or "Adjusted EBITDA." EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for Net Income, Cash Flows from Operations or other income or cash flows data prepared in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used by certain investors as measures to assess the Company's ability to service debt. Adjusted EBITDA is also used in the Company's debt covenants, although the precise adjustments used to calculate Adjusted EBITDA included in the Company's credit facility and indentures vary in certain respects among such agreements and from those presented below. Certain adjustments to Adjusted EBITDA were excluded from the calculations below consistent with the adjustments made for Adjusted Operating Income and Adjusted Net Income. Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated for purposes of the Company's debt covenants, includes additional adjustments to EBITDA in the three months ended March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2012 of $4,376 and $8,086, respectively. Set forth below is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to Cash Flows from Operations and Net Income.
