Quality of earnings The potential earnings adjustments reflected in the table are not deemed to be all-inclusive and are based on information provided by Management. Additional analysis of the income statement and balance sheet through a financial statement audit or additional due diligence could result in the identification of additional or different amounts of potential adjustments to EBITDA. Insights Overall, Management adjusted EBITDA increased to $20,696 in TTM 16 driven by increasing revenues leveraging fixed manufacturing overhead and SG&A overhead costs. Income taxes added back to EBITDA consist solely of income-based state taxes. Revenue based state taxes have not been added back to EBITDA.

As Subsidiary accumulated more standalone rate data, the blended mix of Subsidiary and Target Co. rates shifted more heavily to Subsidiary rates. As of August 27, 2016, the Company began fully using historical Subsidiary incident rates. This change resulted in an increase to the required liability from $975 at November 29, 2014 to $1,512 as of November 28, 2015, and further to $1,862 as of August 27, 2016. As a result, the Company incurred significant, non-recurring expenses in Fiscal 15 to catch-up the accrual for prior periods. The table below presents the impact on working capital and EBITDA, had the Company utilized full Subsidiary incident rates in estimating workers compensation liabilities over the Historical Period. See also WC-09 in the working capital section of the report. Additionally, Management included an over accrual of $92 at TTM 16 within this adjustment using the latest historical Subsidiary incident and injury rates.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
