Key Performance Measures

The Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”) utilizes Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA as performance measures.

Adjusted Net Income is our key performance measure and provides the CODM with the information necessary to assess operational performance, as well as make resource and allocation decisions. Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income attributable to shareholders, adjusted (a) to exclude the impact of provision for income taxes, equity-based compensation expense, acquisition and transaction expenses, losses on the modification or extinguishment of debt and capital lease obligations, changes in fair value of non-hedge derivative instruments, asset impairment charges, incentive allocations, and equity in earnings of unconsolidated entities, (b) to include the impact of cash income tax payments, and our pro-rata share of the Adjusted Net Income from unconsolidated entities, and (c) to exclude the impact of the non-controlling share of Adjusted Net Income. We evaluate investment performance for each reportable segment primarily based on Adjusted Net Income. We believe that net income attributable to shareholders, as defined by GAAP, is the most comparable earnings measurement with which to reconcile Adjusted Net Income.

The following table presents our consolidated reconciliation of net loss attributable to shareholders to Adjusted Net Loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016:

  Three Months Ended

Add: Changes in fair value of non-hedge derivative instruments             3  
Add: Asset impairment charges     7,450         7,450  
Add: Pro-rata share of Adjusted Net (Loss) Income from unconsolidated entities (1) (419 )   (322 )   (1,685 )   (237 )
Add: Incentive allocations              
Less: Cash payments for income taxes (592 )   (69 )   (595 )   (420 )
Less: Equity in losses (earnings) of unconsolidated entities 327     259     1,593     174  
Less: Non-controlling share of Adjusted Net Loss (2) (17 )   (3,710 )   (56 )   (2,721 )
Adjusted Net Income (Loss) $ 626     $ (5,414 )   $ 377     $ (11,947 )
                               

______________________________________________________________

(1) Pro-rata share of Adjusted Net Income from unconsolidated entities includes the Company’s proportionate share of the unconsolidated entities’ net income adjusted for the excluded and included items detailed in the table above, for which there were no adjustments.

(2) Non-controlling share of Adjusted Net Loss is comprised of the following for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016: (i) equity-based compensation of $50 and $5, (ii) provision for income tax of $(2) and $0, (iii) asset impairment of $0 and $3,725, less (iv) cash tax payments of $31 and $20, respectively. Non-controlling share of Adjusted Net (Loss) Income is comprised of the following for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016: (i) equity-based compensation of $75 and $(1,614), (ii) provision for income tax of $13 and $14, (iii) loss on extinguishment of debt of $0 and $616, and (iv) asset impairment of $0 and $3,725, less (v) cash tax payments of $32 and $20, respectively.

We view Adjusted EBITDA as a secondary measurement to Adjusted Net Income, which we believe serves as a useful supplement to investors, analysts and management to measure economic performance of deployed revenue generating assets between periods on a consistent basis, and which we believe measures our financial performance and helps identify operational factors that management can impact in the short-term, namely our cost structure and expenses. Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because other entities may not calculate Adjusted EBITDA in the same manner.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to shareholders, adjusted (a) to exclude the impact of provision for income taxes, equity-based compensation expense, acquisition and transaction expenses, losses on the modification or extinguishment of debt and capital lease obligations, changes in fair value of non-hedge derivative instruments, asset impairment charges, incentive allocations, depreciation and amortization expense, and interest expense, (b) to include the impact of our pro-rata share of Adjusted EBITDA from unconsolidated entities, and (c) to exclude the impact of equity in earnings of unconsolidated entities and the non-controlling share of Adjusted EBITDA.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net loss attributable to shareholders to Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016:

(3) Depreciation and amortization expense includes $20,221 and $14,701 of depreciation and amortization expense, $1,065 and $1,576 of lease intangible amortization, and $297 and $60 of amortization for lease incentives in the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively. Depreciation and amortization expense includes $37,598 and $27,918 of depreciation and amortization expense, $2,347 and $3,154 of lease intangible amortization, and $944 and $119 of amortization for lease incentives in the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

(4) Pro-rata share of Adjusted EBITDA from unconsolidated entities includes the following items for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016: (i) net (loss) income of $(376) and $(320), (ii) interest expense of $223 and $257, and (iii) depreciation and amortization expense of $342 and $851, respectively.  Pro-rata share of Adjusted EBITDA from unconsolidated entities includes the following items for the six months ended  June 30, 2017 and 2016: (i) net (loss) income of $(1,685) and $(267), (ii) interest expense of $474 and $661, and (iii) depreciation and amortization expense of $720 and $1,766, respectively

(5) Non-controlling share of Adjusted EBITDA is comprised of the following items for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016: (i) equity based compensation of $50 and $5, (ii) provision for income taxes of $(2) and $0, (iii) interest expense of $476 and $1,490, (iv) depreciation and amortization expense of $1,753 and $1,682, and (v) asset impairment of $0 and $3,725, respectively. Non-controlling share of Adjusted EBITDA is comprised of the following items for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016: (i) equity based compensation of $75 and $(1,614), (ii) provision for income taxes of $13 and $14, (iii) interest expense of $1,004 and $2,956, (iv) depreciation and amortization expense of $3,427 and $3,238, (v) loss on extinguishment of debt of $0 and $616, and (vi) asset impairment of $0 and $3,725, respectively.

We use Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD”) in evaluating its ability to meet its stated dividend policy. FAD is not a financial measure in accordance with GAAP. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to FAD is net cash provided by operating activities. We believe FAD is a useful metric for investors and analysts for similar purposes.

We define FAD as: net cash provided by operating activities plus principal collections on finance leases, proceeds from sale of assets, and return of capital distributions from unconsolidated entities, less required payments on debt obligations and capital distributions to non-controlling interest, and excluding changes in working capital.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of FAD to Cash from Operating Activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016:

FAD is subject to a number of limitations and assumptions and there can be no assurance that the Company will generate FAD sufficient to meet its intended dividends. FAD has material limitations as a liquidity measure of the Company because such measure excludes items that are required elements of the Company’s net cash provided by operating activities as described below. FAD should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results of operations under GAAP, and it is not the only metric that should be considered in evaluating the Company’s ability to meet its stated dividend policy. Specifically:

  • FAD does not include equity capital called from the Company’s existing limited partners, proceeds from any debt issuance or future equity offering, historical cash and cash equivalents and expected investments in the Company’s operations.

  • FAD does not give pro forma effect to prior acquisitions, certain of which cannot be quantified.

  • While FAD reflects the cash inflows from sale of certain assets, FAD does not reflect the cash outflows to acquire assets as the Company relies on alternative sources of liquidity to fund such purchases.

  • FAD does not reflect expenditures related to capital expenditures, acquisitions and other investments as the Company has multiple sources of liquidity and intends to fund these expenditures with future incurrences of indebtedness, additional capital contributions and/or future issuances of equity.

  • FAD does not reflect any maintenance capital expenditures necessary to maintain the same level of cash generation from our capital investments.

  • FAD does not reflect changes in working capital balances as management believes that changes in working capital are primarily driven by short term timing differences, which are not meaningful to the Company’s distribution decisions.

  • Management has significant discretion to make distributions, and the Company is not bound by any contractual provision that requires it to use cash for distributions.

If such factors were included in FAD, there can be no assurance that the results would be consistent with the Company’s presentation of FAD.
