Section 7.01 Disclosure of FD Rules.
November 7, 2022, Spirit AeroSystems Holdings, Inc.(the "Company") issued press releases announcing that Spirit AeroSystems, Inc., the Company's direct wholly-owned subsidiary ("Spirit"), (1) intends to offer senior secured first lien notes to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and to certain non- U.S.persons in accordance with Regulation S under the Securities Act, and (2) has commenced an offer to purchase for cash any and all of the $500 millionoutstanding principal amount of its 5.500% Senior Secured First Lien Notes due 2025 (the "2025 First Lien Notes") and to solicit consents to amend certain provisions of the indenture relating to the 2025 First Lien Notes to eliminate certain restrictive covenants and certain events of default and to release all of the collateral. Copies of the press releases are attached hereto as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2, respectively, and are incorporated herein by reference.
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA The Company plans to present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (each as defined below) in connection with its meetings. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not calculated in accordance with
U.S.generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered as a substitute for net (loss) income or any other measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company believes that the presentation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is appropriate to provide additional information to investors about its operating profitability adjusted for certain non-cash items and other gains and expenses that the Company believes are not part of its core operating business and are not an indication of the Company's future earnings performance. The Company defines "EBITDA" as net (loss) income adjusted for equity in net income (loss) of affiliates, income tax (benefit) provision, other (income) expense, net, interest expense and financing fee amortization, depreciation and amortization expense and amortization expense. The Company defines "Adjusted EBITDA" as EBITDA plus or minus certain non-cash or non-recurring items, including (i) employee stock based compensation expense, (ii) forward-loss charges, (iii) cumulative catch-up adjustments, (iv) loss on disposition of assets, (v) Russian sanctions (excluding forward losses), (vi) M&A-related expenses and (vii) restructuring costs. Management believes that excluding these non-cash or non-recurring items provides a better understanding of the underlying trends in the Company's operating performance and allows more accurate comparisons of the Company's operating results to historical performance. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account certain significant items that directly affect the Company's net income or loss. These limitations are best addressed by considering the economic effects of the excluded items independently, and by considering Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 29, 2022and September 30, 2021, the twelve months ended September 29, 2022and the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019 are set forth below.
