5. Alliance Medical EBITA and EBITDA reconciliation
Alliance Medical historically defined EBITA as profit before interest, tax, amortisation of acquired
intangibles, profit/(loss) on disposal of property, plant and equipment, and other administrative expenses
and EBITDA as EBITA before depreciation. EBITDA and EBITA are non-IFRS financial measures and
should not be considered as alternatives to Alliance Medical´s historical financial results based on IFRS.
These non-IFRS measures are included because the directors believe that these measures enhance an
investor´s understanding of Alliance Medical´s results of operations and financial performance as they
present additional financial measures regularly used by the management to assess operating
performance. These measures are not uniformly defined by all companies, including those in the
healthcare and diagnostics industries. Accordingly, these measures may not be comparable with
similarly titled measures and disclosures by other companies.
The following table presents a reconciliation calculation from profit before interest and taxation to EBITA
and EBITDA:

         million), Alliance Medical Molecular Imaging Limited gain on consolidation (£1.5 million) and loss on disposal (£4.6
         million).
6. Commentary on the financial results for the financial year ended 31 March 2016
Revenue increased by 3.8% to £218.8 million for the financial year ended 31 March 2016. This increase
was primarily due to volume growth at diagnostic imaging sites in the United Kingdom and Ireland as
well as growth in PET-CT scanning volume under the 10-year PET-CT contract with the National Health
Service in the United Kingdom (the "PET-CT National Contract"). Revenue growth was partially offset
by declines in the Italy, Spain and Northern Europe segments.
EBITDA increased by 11.3% to £60.2 million for the financial year ended 31 March 2016. This increase
was primarily a result of revenue growth and a decrease in overhead expenses resulting from savings
under Alliance Medical´s restructuring programme. This was partially offset by an increased cost of
sales, which was impacted by the mobilisation costs incurred in connection with the PET-CT National
Contract.
Other administrative expenses of £11.8 million in the financial year ended 31 March 2016, comprised
£6.7 million reorganisation and restructuring costs, £3.3 million PET-CT National Contract mobilisation
costs in the United Kingdom and £1.8 million relating to professional fees. Other administrative expenses
of £6.5 million in the financial year ended 31 March 2015, comprised £3.4 million for reorganising and
restructuring costs, a gain of £1.5 million on consolidation of Alliance Medical Molecular Imaging Limited,
following approval by the Competition and Markets Authority in August 2014, and a £4.6 million loss on
disposal of the Spanish mobile scanning business.
Alliance Medical reported a profit of £9.0 million for the financial year ended 31 March 2016, as
compared to a loss of £2.9 million in the financial year ended 31 March 2015. The increased profitability
was due in part to increased revenue and to a reduction in finance costs, following the repayment of a
portion of Alliance Medical´s senior indebtedness in 2015, which was replaced in part by lease facilities.
7. Commentary on the financial results of the six months ended 30 September 2016
Revenue increased by 14.0% to £119.1 million for the six months ended 30 September 2016. This was
primarily the result of revenue growth in the United Kingdom due to an increase in the number of PET-
CT scans conducted pursuant to the PET-CT National Contract and in Ireland due to the revenue impact
of new clinics. Revenue in the Spain and Northern Ireland segments also increased but remained
relatively flat in Italy.
EBITDA increased by 15.2% to £32.5 million for the six months ended 30 September 2016. This
increase was primarily a result of revenue growth and a decrease in overhead expenses as a result of
savings under Alliance Medical´s restructuring programme.
Other administrative expenses of £2.5 million in the six months ended 30 September 2016 comprised
£1.3 million costs in respect of the sale of Alliance Medical, £0.5 million reorganisation and restructuring
costs, £0.4 million PET-CT National Contract mobilisation costs in the United Kingdom and other costs
of £0.3 million. Other administrative expenses of £4.2 million in the six months ended 30 September
2015 comprised reorganisation and restructuring costs of £2.6 million, mobilisation of the PET-CT
National Contract of £1.5 million and other costs of £0.1 million.
Alliance Medical reported a profit of £9.3 million for the six months ended 30 September 2016, an
increase of 342.9% from the comparable six month period in 2015.
8. Consolidation
Alliance Medical has been consolidated as a subsidiary of Life Healthcare under IFRS since 21
