Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

The Earnings Release included the following non-GAAP financial measures (the “non-GAAP Measures”):

 

  (i) operating profit of the Company on a consolidated basis before special items, which is equal to the operating profit of the Company plus restructuring charges less debt extinguishment charges plus acquisition-related costs less timberland gains, each on a consolidated basis;

 

  (ii) operating profit before special items for each of the Company’s business segments, which is equal to that business segments operating profit plus restructuring charges plus acquisition-related costs less timberland gain, as applicable to that segment;

 

  (iii) EBITDA of the Company on a consolidated basis, which is equal to net income plus interest expense, net plus income tax expense less equity earnings of unconsolidated affiliates, net of tax plus depreciation, depletion and amortization, each on a consolidated basis;

 

  (iv) EBITDA for each of the Company’s business segments, which is equal to that business segment’s operating profit less that segment’s other expense (income), net plus that segment’s depreciation, depletion and amortization expense, as applicable to that segment;

 

  (v) EBITDA of the Company before special items on a consolidated basis, which is equal to EBITDA plus restructuring charges plus acquisition-related costs plus debt extinguishment charges less timberland gains, each on a consolidated basis;

 

  (vi) EBITDA before special items for each of the Company’s business segments, which is equal to EBITDA plus restructuring charges plus acquisition costs less timberland gains, as applicable to that segment;

 

  (vii) net working capital of the Company on a consolidated basis, which is equal to current assets less current liabilities less cash and cash equivalents, each on a consolidated basis;

 

  (viii) free cash flows of the Company on a consolidated basis, which is equal to cash provided by (used in) operating activities less purchases of properties, plants, equipment and timber properties; and

 

  (ix) net debt of the Company on a consolidated basis, which is equal to long-term debt plus the current portion of long-term debt plus short-term borrowings less cash and cash equivalents, each on a consolidated basis.

Management of the Company uses the non-GAAP Measures to evaluate ongoing operations and believes that these non-GAAP Measures are useful to enable investors to perform meaningful comparisons of current and historical performance of the Company. Management of the Company also believes that the non-GAAP Measures provide a more stable platform on which to compare the historical performance of the Company than the most nearly equivalent GAAP data.
