Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release and the attached financial tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures. In addition to net income determined in accordance with GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures such as "Adjusted EBITDA" in assessing Swisher's operating performance. Swisher believes this non-GAAP measure serves as an appropriate measure to be used in evaluating the performance of its business.
Swisher defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss excluding the impact of income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, impairment loss on assets held for sale, investigation and review related expenses, non-routine professional fees, net interest expense, foreign currency gain and other income, net change on debt related fair value measurements, stock based compensation, severance, and third party costs directly related to merger and acquisitions.
Swisher presents Adjusted EBITDA because the company considers it an important supplemental measure of its operating performance and believes it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of its results. Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure frequently in its decision-making because it provides supplemental information that facilitates internal comparisons to the historical operating performance of prior periods and gives an additional indication of Swisher's core operating performance. Swisher includes this non-GAAP financial measure in its earnings announcement in order to provide transparency to its investors and enable investors to better compare its operating performance with the operating performance of its competitors. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, and is not intended to represent an alternative measure of, revenue, operating results or cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, Swisher's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.
