Comments on EBITDA

EBITDA is a non-accounting measure prepared by the Company, calculated in accordance with CVM Instruction 527/2012, consisting of net income plus taxes on income, net financial income, depreciation and amortization and its subsidiaries’ non-operating result. The EBITDA margin is calculated on total revenue (net water and sewage revenue, construction revenue, other operating income and revenue from the subsidiaries). Adjusted EBITDA excludes construction revenue/costs as they do not have any cash effect. Although construction revenue does not have any immediate cash effect, it impacts the fiscal year in which it is recognized, considering that it is part of the calculation base for the payment of interest on equity/dividends and employees’ profit sharing.
