Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On May 16, 2018, U.S. Physical Therapy, Inc. (NYSE: USPH), a national operator of outpatient physical therapy clinics (the “Company”), announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Chris Reading, will present at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2018 Health Care Conference on Thursday, May 17, 2018. The presentation will cover an overview of the Company. The conference is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
A copy of the presentation is posted on the Company’s website at www.usph.com.
The presentation includes a discussion of operating results and Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) financial measures. The presentation includes tables that reconcile net income attributable to USPH shareholders calculated in accordance with GAAP to operating results and Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes providing operating results and Adjusted EBITDA to investors is useful information for comparing the Company's period-to-period results.
Operating Results is defined as USPH’s net income attributable to common shareholders prior to interest expense – mandatorily redeemable non-controlling interests – change in redemption value and costs related to the restatement of financial statements, both net of tax, and the tax benefit of revaluation of deferred tax assets and liabilities due to the TCJA,. Management uses Operating Results, which eliminates this current non-cash item that can be subject to volatility and unusual costs, as one of the principal measures to evaluate and monitor financial performance period over period. Management believes that Operating Results is useful information for investors to use in comparing the Company's period-to-period results as well as for comparing with other similar businesses since most do not have mandatorily redeemable instruments and therefore have different liability and equity structures.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income, interest expense – mandatorily redeemable non-controlling interests – change in redemption value, interest expense – debt and other, taxes, depreciation, amortization and equity-based awards compensation expense. Management believes reporting Adjusted EBITDA is useful information for investors in comparing the Company’s period-to-period results as well as comparing with similar businesses which report adjusted EBITDA as defined by their company.
Operating results and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for, net income attributable to USPH shareholders presented in the consolidated financial statements.
