SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

Adjusted earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company is providing in this press release. Adjusted earnings is net income calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), adjusted for special items. The Company presents this non-GAAP financial measure because management uses adjusted earnings to compare its operating performance on a consistent basis over multiple periods because they remove the impact of certain significant non-cash credits or charges and certain infrequent items impacting net income. Adjusted earnings is not a measure of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted earnings herein may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. The following table reconciles net income to adjusted earnings:

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.
