Comments on EBITDA

EBITDA is calculated as net income before income tax and social contribution, financial income (expenses) and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is not a financial performance measure calculated in accordance with IFRS or the Brazilian GAAP and, therefore, should not be considered as an alternative to net income, a measure of operating performance, an alternative to operating cash flows, or as an indicator of liquidity. EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and IMC’s definition of EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA as used by other companies.

Because IMC’s calculation of EBITDA does not include income tax and social contribution, financial income (expenses) and depreciation and amortization, the Company uses EBITDA as an indicator of its general economic performance, which is not affected by changes in tax burden from income tax and social contribution, fluctuations in interest rates or the levels of depreciation and amortization. As a result, IMC believes EBITDA is a significant comparative tool to measure its operating performance from time to time, as well as an indicator on which to ground certain administrative decisions. The Company believes EBITDA allows for a better understanding not only of its financial performance but also of its ability to service the interest and principal payments of its debt and to incur more debt to finance its capital expenditures and its working capital.

However, because EBITDA does not account for certain costs intrinsic to the Company’s business, which could, in turn, materially affect IMC’s profits, such as financial expenses, taxes, depreciation, capital expenditures and other related charges, EBITDA presents limitations that affect their use as a measure of IMC’s profitability.
