1Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation, expenses, acquisition expenses and change in fair value of warrant and stock option liabilities. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. Items excluded from adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is an analytical indicator used by management and the health care industry to evaluate company performance, allocate resources and measure leverage and debt service capacity. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Because adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Net income attributable to Nobilis Health Corp. common shareholders is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles that is most comparable to adjusted EBITDA as defined.
