Non-GAAP Financial Measures - EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA consists of net income (loss) attributable to TSI and subsidiaries plus interest expense (net of interest income), provision (benefit) for corporate income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is TSI’s EBITDA excluding certain items, such as any fixed asset or goodwill impairments, incremental expense related to the adoption of ASC 606, net costs related to closing clubs and other cost-savings initiatives, net of landlord recovery, separation expense related to headcount reductions and former executive officers, and personal training revenue recognized for unused and expired sessions. EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity or financial performance presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA, as we define it, may not be identical to similarly titled measures used by some other companies.

EBITDA has material limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) attributable to TSI and subsidiaries, operating income (loss), cash flows from operating activities or other cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. The items excluded from EBITDA, but included in the calculation of reported net income attributable to TSI and subsidiaries and operating income, are significant and must be considered in performing a comprehensive assessment of our performance.

Investors or prospective investors in TSI regularly request EBITDA as a supplemental analytical measure to, and in conjunction with, our GAAP financial data. We understand that these investors use EBITDA, among other things, to assess our ability to service our existing debt and to incur debt in the future, to evaluate our executive compensation programs, to assess our ability to fund our capital expenditure program, and to gain insight into the manner in which TSI’s management and board of directors analyze our performance. We believe that investors find the inclusion of EBITDA in our press releases to be useful and helpful to them.

Our management and board of directors also use EBITDA as a supplemental measure to our GAAP financial data for purposes broadly similar to those used by investors.

Adjusted EBITDA has similar uses and limitations as EBITDA. We have excluded additional items in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA because management believes that this metric is useful in making period to period comparisons of our performance. We do not, and investors should not, place undue reliance on EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of our performance.

Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date when made, and TSI undertakes no obligation to update these statements in light of subsequent events or developments.
