Item 2.02   Results of Operations & Financial Conditions
On May 6, 2008, The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. (“A&P”) announced fiscal 2007 fourth quarter and full year results for the 12 and 52 weeks ended February 23, 2008, which include for the first time the results of Pathmark Stores Inc. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.
In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information furnished in this Item 2.02 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
To supplement the consolidated financial results as determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the press release presents non-GAAP financial measures “Adjusted (loss) income from operations” and “EBITDA” to evaluate the Company’s liquidity and it is among the primary measures used by management for planning and forecasting of future periods. Adjusted (loss) income from operations is defined as (loss) income from operations adjusted for items the Company considered non-operating in nature that management excludes when evaluating the results of the ongoing business. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest and dividend income, taxes, depreciation, amortization, equity in earnings of Metro, Inc., discontinued operations, the gain on the sale of Metro Inc. shares and the (loss) gain on the sale of A&P Canada. Ongoing, operating EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for items the Company considers non-operating in nature that management excludes when evaluating the results of ongoing business. The Company believes the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because it allows investors to view results in a manner similar to the method used by the Company’s management and makes it easier to compare the Company’s results with other companies that have different financing and capital structures or tax rates. In addition, these measures are also among the primary measures used externally by the Company’s investors, analysts and peers in its industry for purposes of valuation and comparing the results of the Company to other companies in its industry. Ongoing, operating EBITDA is reconciled to Net Cash provided by Operating Activities on Schedule 4 of this release.
