Forward-Looking Statements

From time to time, the Company may make forward-looking statements in its public disclosures. The forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by management of the Company and are believed to be reasonable, although they are inherently uncertain and difficult to predict.

1 Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are non-GAAP financial measures. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release includes a presentation of Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) before interest expense and interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, exclusive of discontinued operations, further adjusted to add back certain non-cash charges, fees under the management agreement with the Company's equity sponsor, proceeds of business insurance, transaction bonuses, certain expenses incurred under indemnification or refunding provisions for acquisitions, severance costs and relocation costs and deductions attributable to minority interests, non-cash compensation expense, income tax credits to the extent not netted, non-cash income and interest income and gains on interest rate hedges, unusual or non-recurring income or gains, unusual or non-recurring losses, operating losses from new starts, business optimization expenses, further adjusted for EBITDA of acquired businesses on a pro forma basis and EBITDA of sold businesses.

This earnings release also includes a presentation of Adjusted EBITDA Margin, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as (i) Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA, less the pro forma portion of EBITDA relating to acquired businesses, divided by (ii) consolidated revenue, less revenue related to unprofitable new starts. These adjustments are made to better reflect the performance of the Company's core business and acquired companies, excluding new starts that are unprofitable.

Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are presented because they are important measures used by management to assess financial performance, and management believes they provide a more transparent view of the Company's operating performance and operating trends. The Company's business strategy has been to pursue growth primarily through acquisitions and new program starts and, more recently, to improve margin. As part of this strategy, the Company increased spending on new starts substantially and more recently such increased spending has moderated, but is well above historical norms. As a result, the Company believes its presentation of Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin provides additional information investors can use to assess the Company's progress on its goals. The Company also believes these measures are useful to investors in assessing financial performance because these non-GAAP financial measures are similar to the metrics used by investors and other interested parties when comparing companies in the Company's industry that have different capital structures, debt levels and/or tax rates. Furthermore, Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA closely correlates to the EBITDA measure used in the Company's senior credit agreement. Reconciliations of net income (loss) to Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin data are presented within the tables below.

Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin do not represent and should not be considered alternatives to net income or cash flows from operations, as determined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP. While Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin are frequently used as measures of financial performance and the ability to meet debt service requirements, they are not necessarily comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the methods of calculation. Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin should be reviewed in conjunction with the Company's financial statements filed with the SEC (News - Alert).
