- Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $400 million to $440 million, an increase of up to 10% versus 2019 results.

1 The Company's full year outlook for 2020 is based on the current book of business as well as information available today regarding the potential effect of the coronavirus and the current recession. There are a number of factors, including the potential for a second wave of virus infections and related business implications, that we may not be able to accurately predict. In addition, the 2020 outlook includes the impact of deconsolidating our joint venture in China, which was finalized in the second quarter 2020, and the divestiture of Diebold Nixdorf Portavis GmbH, which was finalized in the first quarter 2020. Collectively, these two businesses generated approximately $110 million of revenue in 2019 and are expected to generate approximately $80 million of revenue in 2020.
2 The foreign currency impact is estimated based on exchange rates as of May 31, 2020.
3 With respect to the Company's non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA outlook for 2020, the Company is not providing a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure because it is unable to predict with reasonable certainty those items that may affect such measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. These measures primarily exclude the future impact of restructuring actions and net non-routine items. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, net income calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" for additional information regarding the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures.
Year-to-date Financials Year-to-date financial results include preliminary results for April and May of 2020 that have been prepared by the Company based on currently available information and have not been reviewed by the Company's independent auditors. Preliminary results require a greater degree of estimation and assumptions than a typical period end closing process. As a result, second quarter results, and the actual results for April and May of 2020 included therein, may differ materially from the preliminary results presented above due to the finalization of quarterly financial and accounting procedures. The above preliminary results should not be considered a substitute for the financial statements for the second quarter ending June 30, 2020 prepared in accordance with GAAP, and investors should not place undue reliance upon the preliminary results.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Information To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, the Company considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including non-GAAP results, free cash flow/(use), EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA. The Company calculates constant currency by translating the prior year results at the current year exchange rate. The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, to evaluate the Company's operating and financial performance and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of the Company's competitors. Also, the Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in establishing operational goals. The Company also believes providing these non-GAAP financial measures to investors, as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, helps investors evaluate the Company's operating and financial performance and trends in the Company's business, consistent with how management evaluates such performance and trends. The Company also believes these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful to investors in comparing its performance to the performance of other companies, although its non-GAAP financial measures are specific to the Company and the non-GAAP financial measures of other companies may not be calculated in the same manner. The Company provides EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because the Company believes that investors and securities analysts will find EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to be useful measures for evaluating the Company's operating performance and comparing the Company's operating performance with that of similar companies that have different capital structures and for evaluating the Company's ability to meet the Company's future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements. The Company is also providing EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA in light of the Company's credit agreement and the issuance of the Company's 8.5% senior notes due 2024. For additional information regarding the Company's use of non-GAAP financial measures, please refer to the Company's press release of June 22, 2020 and its financial statements as published under https://investors.dieboldnixdorf.com/.
