Adjusted pre-tax income(1)

(1) Adjusted pre-tax income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted net income are non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful in evaluating our operating performance. Triton's, TCIL's and TAL's definition and calculation of Adjusted pre-tax income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted net income, including reconciliation of such non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, are outlined in the attached schedules.
"We are very excited to have completed this transformative combination and formed Triton International, the world’s largest, most capable and most efficient container leasing company,” commented Brian M. Sondey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Triton International. "With the closing now behind us, operations at the new Triton are off to a running start. We continue to expect our new company to have significant scale, cost, container supply and operating capability advantages compared to our peers, and we are on track to achieve our goal of $40 million of annual cost savings after our systems are fully integrated. The new company has also been well received by our customers, vendors and lenders. I would like to thank our employees and all of our business partners for helping us successfully launch Triton International."
"While overall business conditions remained challenging, we did see some improvement during the second quarter, with leasing demand returning after a long period of slow activity. Modest trade growth, combined with limited production of new containers, has resulted in many of our customers experiencing spot container shortages and has led to increased demand for our containers. Net pick-up activity for the combined operations of TCIL and TAL was meaningfully positive during the second quarter of 2016 for the first time since the third quarter of 2014, and our combined utilization has started to recover, increasing by 0.2% during the second quarter to reach
as of June 30, 2016. Utilization of the Triton container fleet currently stands at
"While leasing demand and net pick-up activity improved during the second quarter, market leasing rates and used container sale prices remained very low due to aggressive competition. Low market leasing rates continued to compress our leasing margins, as containers were returned from high-rate leases and subsequently leased out at lower market rates, and as existing leases were renegotiated and extended at lower rate levels. Used container sale prices also continued to decrease in the second quarter, leading to significant losses on the sale of containers. The loss on sale was particularly large for the TAL fleet during the second quarter due to mark-to-market adjustments related to TAL’s much larger inventory of containers for sale."
"Business conditions are also challenging for our shipping line customers, and several of our customers are in active financial restructuring negotiations. While our collections performance generally has been strong, credit risks will remain elevated until freight rates and the financial performance of the container shipping lines improve."
"The combined Adjusted pre-tax income for TCIL and TAL was
during the second quarter of 2016, down
from the second quarter of 2015 and down
from the first quarter of 2016. This decrease primarily reflects ongoing lease rate pressure and the further decrease of used container selling prices in the second quarter. The improved leasing demand that we began to experience in the second quarter will mainly benefit future periods."
Mr. Sondey continued, "Leasing demand remains solid as we start the third quarter, and we have recently seen some limited improvements in pricing trends. We expect dry container net pick-up activity to be strong for the third quarter, and our utilization should continue to increase. Prevailing lease rates remain far below historical levels and well below our portfolio average, but we have seen some improvement in market leasing rates as depot and factory container inventories shrink. Used container sale prices have so far stabilized during the third quarter, benefiting from a reduced volume of off-hires and improved lease-out opportunities for our older depot containers. If current demand levels and pricing trends continue through the third quarter, we expect our Adjusted pre-tax income to increase sequentially in the third quarter, excluding the impacts of purchase accounting."
Triton’s Board of Directors has approved and declared a
per share quarterly cash dividend on its issued and outstanding common stock, payable on
to shareholders of record at the close of business on

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We use the terms "EBITDA", “Adjusted EBITDA”, "Adjusted pre-tax income", and "Adjusted net income", throughout this press release.
EBITDA is defined as net income before interest and debt expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, and the write-off of deferred financing costs. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding gains and losses on interest rate swaps, plus principal payments on finance leases, plus transaction and other non-recurring costs.
Adjusted pre-tax income is defined as income before income taxes as further adjusted for certain items which are described in more detail below, which management believes are not representative of our operating performance. Adjusted pre-tax income excludes gains and losses on interest rate swaps, the write-off of deferred financing costs, and transaction and other non-recurring costs. Adjusted net income is defined as net income further adjusted for the items discussed above, net of income tax.
EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted pre-tax income, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted pre-tax return on tangible equity are not presentations made in accordance with U.S. GAAP. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted pre-tax income, and Adjusted net income should not be considered as alternatives to, or more meaningful than, amounts determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, including net income, or net cash from operating activities.
We believe that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted pre-tax income, Adjusted net income, and Adjusted pre-tax return on tangible equity are useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because these measures:
are widely used by securities analysts and investors to measure a company’s operating performance and available liquidity to service debt and fund investments without regard to debt or capital structure, income tax rates and depreciation policy estimates, which can vary substantially from company to company;
help investors to more meaningfully evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure, our asset base and certain non-routine events which we do not expect to occur in the future; and
are used by our management for various purposes, including as measures of operating performance and liquidity, to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis, in presentations to our board of directors concerning our financial performance and as a basis for strategic planning and forecasting.
We have provided a reconciliation of net income, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to EBITDA in the tables below for the
. We have also provided reconciliations of income before income taxes and net income, the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP measures, to Adjusted pre-tax income and Adjusted net income in the tables below for the
