3Investor Day 2022 | SAFE HARBOR This presentation contains certain items, such as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margins, Free Cash Flow and net debt, as well certain income and expense items on a per share basis, that could be considered ‘non-GAAP’ financial measures under SEC rules. We think such items provide useful information to investors regarding the Company’s operational performance. This presentation also may contain statements, estimates, or projections that constitute “forward-looking statements” as defined under U.S. federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Company’s historical experience and our present expectations or projections as expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements in this presentation. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future events, results, actions, levels of activity, performance or achievements. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. Viewers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update them publicly in light of new information or future events. Certain additional disclosures regarding our use of `non-GAAP' items (including reconciliations to GAAP measures) and forward-looking statements are set forth in our SEC filings, including our most recent annual and quarterly reports. Please refer item 7 in the Annual Report on Form 10K for the concise reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures. Our use of such items in this presentation is subject to those additional disclosures, which we urge you to read.
