On February 24, 2009, First Advantage Corporation, a Delaware corporation, (the Company) announced financial results for the fourth quarter year ended December 31, 2008. The full text of the press release issued in connection with the announcement is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
The Companys earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations within the press release of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in the text of the press release.
EBITDA is presented in the earnings release. EBITDA was determined by adjusting net income for income taxes, interest expense, depreciation and amortization.
Although EBITDA is not a financial measure prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), they are calculated and communicated by the Company because management believes it is of interest to investors and lenders in relation to its overall capital structure and its ability to borrow additional funds.
The Companys calculation of EBITDA may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view EBITDA as an alternative to the GAAP measures of net income as a measure of performance, or cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity. In addition, 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 to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
