Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") provided throughout this press release, Surgery Partners has presented the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per share, which exclude various items detailed in the attached "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

During the second quarter of 2016, the Company reassessed its segment reporting and realigned the disclosures to reflect the review and decision making made by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”). The purpose of these changes was to replace operating income with adjusted EBITDA as the primary profit/loss metric reviewed by the CODM in making key business decisions and on allocation of resources. The Company has revised the segment disclosures below to replace operating income with adjusted EBITDA and has provided a reconciliation from adjusted EBITDA back to net income in the reported condensed consolidated financial information. These changes had no effect on the Company’s reportable segments, which are presented consistent with prior periods.

Total net income $22,293 $12,479 $32,649 $22,967

(3) The above table reconciles adjusted EBITDA by segment to net income as reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

When we use the term “Adjusted EBITDA,” we are referring to net income minus (a) net income attributable to non-controlling interests plus (b) income tax expense, (c) interest and other expense, net, (d) depreciation and amortization, (e) management fee, (f) merger transaction, integration and practice acquisition costs, (g) non-cash stock compensation expense, (h) loss on debt refinancing, (i) contingent acquisition compensation expense and (j) (gain) loss on disposal of investments and long-lived assets. Non-controlling interests represent the interests of third parties, such as physicians, and in some cases, healthcare systems that own an interest in surgical facilities that we consolidate for financial reporting purposes. Our operating strategy is to apply a market-based approach in structuring our partnerships with individual market dynamics driving the structure. We believe that it is helpful to investors to present Adjusted EBITDA as defined above because it excludes the portion of net income attributable to these third-party interests and clarifies for investors our portion of Adjusted EBITDA generated by our surgical facilities and other operations.

We use Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of liquidity. We have included it because we believe that it provides investors with additional information about our ability to incur and service debt and make capital expenditures.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP. It should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and evaluating financial performance and liquidity. Our calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

(4) Fee payable pursuant the Management and Investment Advisory Services Agreement between the Company and Bayside Capital, Inc., which was terminated in connection with our IPO.

SURGERY PARTNERS, INC.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited, Amounts in thousands except shares and per share amounts)

From time to time, the Company incurs certain non-recurring gains or losses that are normally nonoperational in nature and that it does not consider relevant in assessing its ongoing operating performance. When significant, Surgery Partners’ management and Board of Directors typically exclude these gains or losses when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and in certain instances when evaluating performance for incentive compensation purposes. Additionally, the Company believes that some investors and equity analysts exclude these or similar items when evaluating the Company’s current or future operating performance and in making informed investment decisions regarding the Company. Accordingly, the Company provides adjusted net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. stockholders as a supplement to its comparable GAAP measure of net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. Adjusted net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. stockholders should not be considered as a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from adjusted net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. stockholders are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. stockholders should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. stockholders as presented in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

The following table reconciles net income as reflected in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations to adjusted net income used to calculate adjusted net income per share attributable to Surgery Partners, Inc. stockholders:
