The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the overall performance of the Company because it eliminates the effects of events that are non-cash, or are not expected to recur as they are not part of our ongoing operations.
The Company defines "Adjusted EBITDA" as income (loss) from operations, before depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation, acquisition and integration expenses, and restructuring / impairment charges and benefits. The Company considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance and a good measure of the Company's historical operating trends.
Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that are either not part of our core operations, such as acquisition and integration expenses or do not require a cash outlay, such as share-based compensation and impairment charges. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense, which is based on the Company's estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets. These estimates could vary from actual performance of the asset, are based on historical costs, and may not be indicative of current or future capital expenditures.
Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the Company's operating income (loss), as well as other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.
