Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement.


Total debt includes debt (net of premiums, discounts, and debt issuance costs), capital leases and other financing obligations.

We have presented Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate our operating results in a manner that focuses on what management believes to be our core, ongoing business operations. We believe that the inclusion of Adjusted EBITDA provides consistency and comparability with past reports and provides a better understanding of the overall performance of the business and ability to perform in subsequent periods.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as income from operations excluding depreciation, amortization, accretion, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring charges, impairment charges, acquisition costs, and gain on asset sales. The following table presents a reconciliation of income from operations, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, to Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated:
