SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

As adjusted earnings is a measure of earnings that excludes significant non-cash credits and charges and significant and infrequent contingency expenses. As adjusted earnings reflects net income from continuing operations after: the exclusion of net income attributable to noncontrolling interest and before the inclusion of acquisition-related costs in cost of sales and selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses; currency exchange losses (gains) related to non-permanent intercompany loans; and litigation judgments and settlement costs. The acquisition-related costs in cost of sales relate to the fair value measurements to inventory acquired from the acquisitions that were expensed during the periods presented. Acquisition-related costs in SG&A expenses relate to contingent consideration expenses related to certain acquisitions. As adjusted earnings are not a measure of performance under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income from continuing operations, cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities and other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. The Company presents as adjusted earnings because management uses as adjusted earnings to measure performance. As adjusted earnings herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net income to as adjusted earnings:

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

EBITDA, as defined reflects net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders before interest expense, income taxes, and excludes depreciation, amortization, certain non-cash charges and corporate-level expenses as defined in the Company's Revolving Credit Agreement. EBITDA is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities and other income or cash flow statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. The Company presents EBITDA because management uses EBITDA to assess the Company's performance and believes that EBITDA is useful to investors as an indication of the Company's satisfaction of its Debt Service Ratio covenant in its Revolving Credit Agreement. Additionally, EBITDA is a measure used under the Company's revolving credit facility to determine whether the Company may incur additional debt under such facility. EBITDA, as defined herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net income attributable to ParkOhio common shareholders to EBITDA, as defined:
