Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by UHS as Earnings Before Interest, Taxes,
Depreciation and Amortization (“EBITDA”) before management and board
fees, stock option expense, reorganization costs, ASC 805 impact, loss
on extinguishment of debt, transaction and related costs, and
non-recurring, unusual or infrequent expenses, which may not be
calculated consistently among other companies applying similar reporting
measures. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to represent an
alternative to operating income or cash flows from operating, financing
or investing activities (as determined in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) as a measure of performance, and
are not representative of funds available for discretionary use due to
UHS’ financing obligations. EBITDA is included because it is a widely
accepted financial indicator used by certain investors and financial
analysts to assess and compare companies and is an integral part of UHS’
debt covenant calculations. Adjusted EBITDA is included because UHS’
financial guidance and certain compensation plans are based upon this
measure. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides an important
perspective on the company’s ability to service its long-term
obligations, the company’s ability to fund continuing growth, and the
company’s ability to continue as a going concern. A reconciliation of
consolidated net income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is included
below.
