On August 3, 2023, Vector Group Ltd. (NYSE:VGR) (the “Company”) announced its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023. The full text of the press release issued in connection with the announcement is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The information in Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and the related Exhibit attached hereto are being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure
The Company has prepared materials for presentations to investors. The materials are furnished (not filed) as Exhibit 99.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K pursuant to Regulation FD.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Exhibit 99.2 contains the Non-GAAP Financial Measures discussed below.
Please refer to Current Reports on Form 8-K dated February 25, 2021, February 16, 2023 and May 8, 2023 for reconciliations of financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures.
Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Operating Income, Tobacco Adjusted Operating Income, and Tobacco Adjusted EBITDA, and certain financial measures for periods presented, including the last twelve months (“LTM”) ended June 30, 2023, (hereafter, referred to as the “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) are financial measures not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The Company believes that the Non-GAAP Financial Measures are important measures that supplement discussions and analysis of its results of operations and enhance an understanding of its operating performance. The Company believes the Non-GAAP Financial Measures provide investors and analysts with a useful measure of operating results unaffected by differences in capital structures and ages of related assets among otherwise comparable companies.
Management uses the Non-GAAP Financial Measures as measures to review and assess operating performance of the Company’s business, and management does and investors should review both the overall performance (GAAP net income) and the operating performance (the Non-GAAP Financial Measures) of the Company’s business. While management considers the Non-GAAP Financial Measures to be important, they should be considered in addition to, but not as substitutes for or superior to, other measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as operating income, net income and cash flows from operations. In addition, the Non-GAAP Financial Measures are susceptible to varying calculations and the Company’s measurement of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures may not be comparable to those of other companies.
EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Non-GAAP Financial Measures include adjustments for loss on extinguishment of debt, litigation settlements and judgment expense, impact of Master Settlement Agreement settlements, and impact of net interest expense capitalized to real estate ventures (for purposes of Adjusted Net Income only). For purposes of Adjusted EBITDA only, adjustments include equity in earnings from investments, equity in earnings from real estate ventures, stock-based compensation expense, transaction expenses and other, net.
