Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA
Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is defined as total debt, net at our company share (total debt includes outstanding borrowings on our revolving credit facility, our term loan facility, convertible senior debt, net, nonrecourse mortgages and notes payable, net) less cash and equivalents, at our company share, divided by Adjusted EBITDA. Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure derived from non-GAAP financial measures that the Company uses to evaluate its capital structure and the magnitude of its debt against its operating performance. The Company believes that investors use versions of this ratio in a similar manner. The Company’s method of calculating the ratio may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to other REITs.
