(1) Non-GAAP measure. See “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA yield is a non-GAAP supplemental financial measure used by our management and by external users of our financial statements such as investors, research analysts and others to assess the financial performance of our assets and their ability to sustain dividends over the long term without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis.
We define EBITDA yield as projected EBITDA divided by enterprise value.
EBITDA yield does not represent and should not be considered an alternative to, or more meaningful than, net income or any other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP as measures of our financial performance. EBITDA yield has important limitations as an analytical tool because it excludes some but not all items that affect net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Our computation of EBITDA yield may differ from computations of similarly titled measures of other companies.
