  • Assignment of credits by suppliers (Carmakers): the Company has as a strategic part of its operation the realization of large volumes of vehicle acquisitions with the automakers, in order to obtain better financial conditions. The Company’s suppliers, in turn, deduct the securities from first-tier financial institutions through a credit assignment operation, which basically consists on the sale of these receivables, with no right of return. In this way, securities are no longer paid to suppliers and are paid to financial institutions, which take into account the Company’s credit risk.

 

  • Average Age: average age of the fleet calculated in months. It can be calculated for the operational fleet currently in operation in the Fleet Management and Rent-a-Car divisions as well as for the vehicles sold in the Used Cars division.

 

  • Average purchase price: is calculated by dividing the total Capex in fleets by the total number of cars purchased in the analyzed period.

 

  • Average Rented Fleet: in Rent-a-Car, is obtained by dividing the number of daily rates used in the period by the number of days in the period. In Fleet Management is the number of effectively rented cars in the period.

 

  • Average selling price: is calculated by the division of Gross revenue of Used Cars by the total of cars sold in the analyzed period.

  • CAGR: compound annual growth rate.

 

  • Capex and Net Capex in fleets: includes the total invested by the Company in the purchase of vehicles.

E

 

  • EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA: Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, added by the income from the sales of vehicles. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by disregarding non-recurring effects on the Company’s business and is used to measure the cash generation potential in the end activity and determines the evolution of productivity and efficiency over the years.

 

  • EBITDA, EBIT and Net Margins: as a metric for the Car Rental industry, these margins are calculated by dividing the total EBITDA, EBIT and Net Income by the Rental Net Revenue (or the Total Net Revenue – Net Revenue of Used Cars).

  • ROE (Return on Equity): Measures the ability to aggregate value of a business from its own resources and investor money. The annualized ROE is calculated using 2Q18 recurring net income divided by the monthly average of shareholders’ equity adjusted for the deduction of the goodwill generated by the mergers with Auto Ricci and Unidas and the addition of the equity valuation adjustment (Shareholders’ Equity).

 

  • ROIC (Return On Invested Capital): measures the return generated as a percentage of the capital invested. For the calculation of the annualized ROIC, we consider the NOPLAT of 2Q18 (EBIT net of IR) divided by the average of the invested capital, which in turn considers the sum of the balances of fixed assets, inventories and accounts receivable, subtracting the balance of accounts payable (Suppliers). Finally, we annualize the 2Q18 result as this is the first quarter in which the recurring accounting results of net income and EBIT consider Unidas’s results on a consolidated basis.
