Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP financial measures by financial statement line items that exclude the effects of stock-based compensation, depreciation, restructuring costs, investigation costs and other expenses that we believe do not reflect our core operating performance. Our key non-GAAP liquidity and performance measures include adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss), see definitions of such below. We use adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) as key measures to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operating plans. We believe excluding those expenses inherent in calculating adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) can provide useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of our business. Accordingly, we believe that adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss) provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as it does for our management and board of directors. Our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding the effects of stock-based compensation, depreciation, restructuring costs, investigation costs, other income (expense), net, interest expense and income tax expense. Restructuring costs relate to an effort in the first quarter of 2018 to reduce headcount and sublease office space to match strategic and financial objectives and optimize resources for long term growth. Investigation costs relate to third party investigation costs incurred in relation to a complaint filed by a former employee, which resulted in the audit committee of our board of directors concluding that no credible evidence supported the former employee’s claims. We have added back all of the net restructuring and investigation costs because we do not believe they reflect our core operations. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)

We define non-GAAP net income (loss) differently for this report than we have defined it in the past, due to independent investigation costs that were recorded in third quarter of 2018. We define non-GAAP net income (loss) to consist of net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding the effects of stock-based compensation, depreciation, restructuring costs, investigation costs (for more information about restructuring and investigation costs, please refer to description in adjusted EBITDA above), amortization of debt issuance costs and non-cash income tax expense. We exclude the non-cash portion of income taxes because of our ability to offset a substantial portion of future income tax liabilities by utilizing our deferred tax assets, which primarily consist of federal net operating loss carryforwards and federal research and experimentation credit carryforwards. We have added back all of the net restructuring and investigation costs because we do not believe they reflect our core operations.
