Item 2.02    Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On May 4, 2021, Mallinckrodt plc (the "Company" or "Mallinckrodt") provided its financial results for the three months ended March 26, 2021 in the attached Exhibit 99.1.
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 26, 2021.
The information contained in this Item 2.02, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as otherwise expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Exhibit 99.1 contains financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA and net sales growth on a constant-currency basis, which are considered "non-GAAP" financial measures under applicable U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules and regulations.
Adjusted EBITDA represents amounts prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP) and adjusts for certain items that management believes are not reflective of the operational performance of the business. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA represents net loss, adjusted for interest expense, net, taxes, depreciation and amortization and certain items that management believes are not reflective of the operational performance of the business and additional adjustments. These adjustments include, but are not limited to, restructuring charges, net; non-restructuring impairment charges; discontinued operations; changes in fair value of contingent consideration obligations; significant legal and environmental charges; divestitures; separation costs; unrealized gain on equity investment; reorganization items, net; share-based compensation and other items identified by the Company.
Segment net sales growth on a constant-currency basis measures the change in segment net sales between current- and prior-year periods using a constant currency, the exchange rate in effect during the applicable prior-year period.
The Company has provided these adjusted financial measures because they are used by management, along with financial measures in accordance with GAAP, to evaluate the company's operating performance. In addition, the Company believes that they will be used by certain investors to measure Mallinckrodt's operating results. Management believes that presenting these adjusted measures provides useful information about the Company's performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. Reconciliations of these financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in Exhibit 99.1.
These adjusted measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
