U.S. Physical Therapy, Inc. (NYSE:USPH) Files An 8-K Regulation FD Disclosure
Item 7.01

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, net of tax. Management uses operating results, which eliminates this non-cash item that can be subject to volatility, 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.

In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including the exhibits, shall not be deemed to be "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
