Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure used by Willdan's management to measure its operating performance. Willdan defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income plus net interest expense, income tax (benefit) expense, depreciation and amortization, goodwill impairment and other non-recurring income and expense items occurring in such period. Willdan's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from those of many companies reporting similarly named measures. This measure should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, such as operating income and net income. Willdan believes Adjusted EBITDA enables management to separate non-recurring income and expense items from its results of operations to provide a more normalized and consistent view of operating performance on a period-to-period basis. Willdan uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate its performance for, among other things, budgeting, forecasting and incentive compensation purposes. Willdan also believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors, research analysts, investment bankers and lenders because it removes the impact of certain non-recurring income and expense items from its operational results, which may facilitate comparison of its results from period to period.
Adjusted EBITDA is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to operating income or net income as an indicator of operating performance or any other GAAP measure.
Adjusted EBITDA decreased to $(3.3) million for fiscal year 2012 from $4.3 million for fiscal year 2011.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Willdan had $10.0 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 28, 2012, compared with $3.0 million at December 30, 2011. Willdan has a $5.0 million revolving line of credit with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association ("Wells Fargo"), with $3.0 million in outstanding borrowings at December 28, 2012. In addition, the revolving line of credit is scheduled to expire on April 1, 2013. Wells Fargo may also refuse to renew the facility when it expires on April 1, 2013 and if they do so, Willdan will have to repay the outstanding balance of $3.0 million.
Willdan is currently in breach of the net income covenant in its revolving line of credit because it did not have net income of at least $250,000 measured on a rolling four quarter basis and it sustained net losses for two consecutive quarters in the past year. Additionally, Willdan's ratio of funded debt to EBITDA exceeds the limits permitted under the line of credit. Because of these covenant breaches, Willdan's ability to borrow additional funds under the line of credit is currently subject to Wells Fargo's discretion. Although Willdan is seeking a waiver from Wells Fargo for the current breach of the covenants and to extend the maturity of the line of credit, Wells Fargo is not obligated to provide any waiver or modify the terms of the agreement and could choose to increase the interest rate of the outstanding indebtedness, accelerate the loans outstanding under the line of credit and/or terminate its commitments under the line of credit.
