Adjusted operating income represents operating income (loss) adjusted for amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, restructuring charges, and charges for in-process research and development. Adjusted operating income is not a recognized term under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Adjusted operating income does not represent operating income (loss), as that term is defined under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income (loss) as an indicator of our operating performance. We have included information concerning adjusted operating income because we use such information when evaluating operating income to better evaluate the underlying performance of the Company. Adjusted operating income as presented herein is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures. The following is a reconciliation between adjusted operating income and operating income (loss), the GAAP measure we believe to be most directly comparable to adjusted operating income (in thousands).

EBITDA represents net income (loss) before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by subtracting from or adding to EBITDA items of income or expense as described below. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not a recognized terms under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not represent net income, as that term is defined under GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance. Additionally, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of free cash flow available for management or discretionary use as such measures do not consider certain cash requirements such as capital expenditures (including capitalized software expense), tax payments and debt service requirements. UGS Corp. considers EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be key indicators of our ability to pay our debt. We have included information concerning EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because we use such information in determining compensation of our management and in our review of the performance of our business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as presented herein are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures. The following is a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the GAAP measure we believe to be most directly comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (in thousands).
