On March 15, 2012, U. S. Physical Therapy, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that its Chief Financial Officer, Larry McAfee, will present at the Sidoti & Company 16th Annual New York Emerging Growth Institutional Investor Forum on Tuesday, March 20, 2012. The presentation will cover an overview of the Company. The conference is being held at the Grand Hyatt New York.
A copy of the updated presentation is posted on the Company’s website, www.usph.com.
The investor presentation contains certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under Regulation G of the rules and regulations of the SEC. These non-GAAP financial measures contained in the presentation include a presentation of Adjusted Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders (“Adjusted Net Income”) and Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted Net Income equals net income attributable to common shareholders (“Net Income”) less after-tax effect of 2011 gain on purchase price settlement, 2010 gain on sale of five clinic joint venture and 2010 positive adjustment to income tax provision. All adjustments are described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Adjusted EBITDA equals Net Income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and equity compensation expense and above mentioned adjustments to arrive at Adjusted Net Income. See the last pages of the investor presentation which includes a reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income and Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes providing these non-GAAP financial measurements to investors are useful information for comparing the Company’s period-to-period results.
