EBITDA represents net income (loss) before financial expense, social contribution and income taxes and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), as an indicator of CSN‘s operating performance, or as an alternative to cash flow as an indicator of liquidity. CSN‘s management believes that EBITDA is a useful measure of the Company’s operating performance and allows its comparison with other companies. It should be noted that EBITDA is not a recognized measure under the Brazilian Accounting Principles (BR GAAP) or the North American Accounting Principles (US GAAP) and may be defined and calculated in a different way by other companies.
