Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On May 8, 2012, SuperMedia Inc. (the Company) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2012. A copy of the press release is furnished as part of this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Companys press release and financial schedules include financial information prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) as well as non-GAAP financial information. The non-GAAP financial information includes:
· EBITDA, which is earnings before interest, taxes, gain on early extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization;
· EBITDA margin, which is EBITDA divided by total operating revenue;
· adjusted EBITDA;
· adjusted EBITDA margin, which is adjusted EBITDA divided by total operating revenue; and
· free cash flow, which is cash from operations minus capital expenditures, including software capitalization.
EBITDA is determined by adjusting net income for interest, taxes, gain on early extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA by total operating revenue. Management believes that EBITDA and EBITDA margin are useful to investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating our operating performance. EBITDA and EBITDA margin are used internally to evaluate current operating expense efficiency and operating profitability by excluding interest, tax, gain on early extinguishment of debt, depreciation and amortization items. In addition, EBITDA is used internally for incentive compensation purposes.
Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are adjusted for the impacts of certain unique costs including severance costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing adjusted EBITDA by total operating revenue. Descriptions of the adjustments made to prepare our adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are provided in the financial schedules accompanying the press release attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report.
Management believes the presentations of adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin assist readers in better understanding our results of operations and trends from period to period, consistent with managements evaluation of the Companys consolidated results of operations for a variety of internal measures including strategic business planning, capital allocation and incentive compensation. Management believes that the adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are more indicative of future operating results than GAAP results of operations because of the non-operational and/or non-recurring nature of the items adjusted.
Free cash flow is defined as cash from operations minus capital expenditures, including software capitalization. Management believes that free cash flow is useful to investors and other users of our financial information because management regularly reviews free cash flow as an important indicator of how much cash is generated by normal business operations.
As a result of these factors, management provides this information externally, along with a reconciliation to their comparable GAAP amounts, so readers have access to the detail and general nature of adjustments made to GAAP results to arrive at non-GAAP measures.
Management provides non-GAAP financial information to enhance the understanding of the Companys GAAP consolidated financial statements and readers should consider the information in addition to, but not instead of, the Companys financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial information may be determined or calculated differently by other companies.
