Comments on EBITDA
From time to time, Gerdau discloses so-called non-GAAP financial measures, primarily EBITDA. EBITDA means income before net financial expenses, income and social contribution taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not Brazilian or the U.S. GAAP measurement, does not represent cash flows for the periods presented and should not be considered alternatives to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flows as an indicator of liquidity. EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and our definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA as used by other companies.
Although the EBITDA does not provide, according to the Brazilian Accounting Principles (BR GAAP) or the U.S. Accounting Principles (US GAAP), measures of the operational cash flows, our management uses EBITDA to measure our operating performance. Additionally, our management believes that disclosure of EBITDA can provide useful information to investors, financial analysts and the public in their review of our operating performance and its comparison to the operating performance of other companies in the same industry and other industries.
