(a) Management adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and other non-cash items. The Company believes management adjusted EBITDA is a meaningful measure of park-level operating profitability. Management adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of operating performance computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and is not intended to be a substitute for operating income, net income or cash flow from operating activities, as defined under generally accepted accounting principles. In addition, management adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

 


(b) Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, other non-cash items and other adjustments as defined in the previously announced merger agreement providing for the acquisition of the Company by Siddur Holdings, Ltd., an entity controlled by affiliates of Apollo Global Management. Pro forma adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of operating performance computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and is not intended to be a substitute for operating income, net income or cash flow from operating activities, as defined under generally accepted accounting principles.
