USE OF PROCEEDS

Except as otherwise set forth in a prospectus supplement, we intend to use the net proceeds from any sale of the securities described in this prospectus for our general corporate purposes, which may include financing possible acquisitions, refinancing our indebtedness and repurchasing our common stock. The net proceeds may be invested temporarily in short-term marketable securities or applied to repay short-term debt until they are used for their stated purpose.

Unless otherwise set forth in a prospectus supplement, we will not receive any proceeds in the event that the securities are sold by a selling securityholder.

RATIO OF EARNINGS TO FIXED CHARGES AND RATIO OF EARNINGS TO COMBINED FIXED CHARGES AND PREFERRED STOCK DIVIDENDS

The following table sets forth the ratio of earnings to fixed charges and ratio of earnings to combined fixed charges and preferred stock dividends for the indicated periods:

 

     Year Ended December 31,      Three Months
Ended March 31, 
     2011      2012      2013      2014      2015      2016

Ratio of earnings to fixed charges (1)

     2.19x        2.32x        1.89x        2.11x        1.99x      2.38x

Ratio of earnings to combined fixed charges and preferred stock dividends (2)

     2.19x        2.32x        1.89x        2.05x        1.80x      2.12x

 

(1) For the purposes of this calculation, “earnings” consists of income from continuing operations before income taxes and income on equity method investments, as well as fixed charges (excluding interest capitalized and amortization of interest capitalized). “Fixed charges” consists of interest expensed and capitalized, amortization of debt discounts, premiums and related issuance costs and the component of rental expense associated with operating leases believed by management to be representative of the interest factor thereon.
(2) The Company had no preferred stock outstanding for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013; therefore, the ratio of earnings to combined fixed charges and preferred stock dividends is the same as the ratio of earnings to fixed charges.
