(1)   Constant currency amounts, which are non-GAAP measurements, were calculated using the average exchange rate for the corresponding month for 2017. We translate the results of our international operating segment from local currencies into U.S. dollars using currency rates in effect at different points in time in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Significant changes in foreign exchange rates from one period to the next can result in meaningful variations in reported results. We are providing constant currency amounts for our international operating segment to present a period-to-period comparison of business performance that excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

(1)   Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before income taxes, interest expense, other income, loss on debt amendments, other cash distributions from equity investees, depreciation and amortization, impairment of long-lived assets, loss on sale of assets and other, changes in deferred lease expense, amortization of long-term prepaid rents and share based awards compensation expense, as calculated below. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in our industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity (as determined in accordance with GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We have included Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it provides management and investors with additional information to measure our performance and liquidity, estimate our value and evaluate our ability to service debt. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA for incentive compensation purposes.
