Adjusted EBITDA

During the fourth quarter of 2012, we determined that our measure of segment profitability is Adjusted EBITDA of each reportable segment. Accordingly, our CEO evaluates performance and allocates resources based primarily on Segment Adjusted EBITDA. Segment Adjusted EBITDA is also a key metric utilized in our annual bonus and long-term incentive plans.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA excludes: (i) depreciation and amortization; (ii) charges due to streamlining initiatives, brand-exiting activities and acquisition related costs; and (iii) losses on asset disposals and impairments. Unallocated Corporate costs also exclude non-cash share-based compensation expense.

Therefore, Segment Adjusted EBITDA does not include Corporate costs associated with the following functions: corporate finance, investor relations, communications, legal, human resources and information technology shared services and costs of executive offices and corporate facilities, which are included in Unallocated Corporate costs.

We do not allocate amounts reported below Operating loss to our reportable segments, other than equity income (loss) in equity method investees. Our definition of Segment Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
