Check the appropriate box below if the Form 8-K filing is intended to simultaneously satisfy the filing obligation of the registrant under any of the following provisions (see General Instruction A.2. below):
On February 9, 2012, Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three months and nine months ended December 31, 2011.
Such press release contains adjusted EBITDA information in the discussion of the Company’s financial results. Adjusted EBITDA represents earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, other income (expense), net, non-recurring items, stock-based compensation, allocated costs attributable to discontinued operations and non-recurring items.
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a financial metric to measure the financial performance of the business because management believes it provides additional information with respect to the performance of its fundamental business activities. For this reason, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA will also be useful to others, including its stockholders, as a valuable financial metric.
Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net loss from continuing operations as an indicator of operating performance. Management also believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that is useful both to management and investors when evaluating the Company's performance and comparing our performance with the performance of our competitors. Management also uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, as well as to evaluate the Company's performance because Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain non-recurring or non-cash items, such as stock-based compensation charges, that management believes are not indicative of the Company's ongoing operating performance.
The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a performance measure and not a liquidity measure, and a reconciliation between net loss from continuing operations and Adjusted EBITDA is provided in the financial results. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to income (loss) from operations or net loss from continuing operations as an indicator of performance or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of cash flows, in each case as determined in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of liquidity. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. Management does not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
A copy of such press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
The information in this Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
