Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and may not necessarily be comparable to other similarly titled captions of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation. Refer to the definition of Adjusted EBITDA in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for further detail. Carrols has not reconciled guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to the corresponding GAAP financial measures because the Company does not provide guidance for net income or for the various reconciling items. The Company is unable to provide guidance for these reconciling items since certain items that impact net income are outside of Carrols’ control or cannot be reasonably predicted.
