Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On February 13, 2006, Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Inc. (the Company) issued a press release regarding its financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2005. Included in the press release is a calculation of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA). Management of the Company believes that EBITDA is a useful tool for comparing the Companys operating results with the operating results of other companies in the childcare industry. We have provided EBITDA in previous earnings releases and believe that providing it now aids investors when they are comparing prior periods. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income for purposes of evaluating our results of operations. The press release announcing the financial results for the fourth quarter is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Press Release issued by Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Inc. dated February 13, 2006.
