Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The press release includes information about certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP" or "U.S. GAAP"), including non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP adjusted operating income and margin, non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Management defines its non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

  • Non-GAAP gross margin represents the corresponding GAAP measure adjusted to exclude (1) stock-based compensation expense and (2) amortization of intangible assets.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted operating income represents the corresponding GAAP measure adjusted to exclude (1) stock-based compensation expense, (2) amortization of intangible assets, (3) impairment charges or asset write-offs, and (4) costs related to public stock offerings.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted net income represents the corresponding GAAP measure adjusted to exclude (1) stock-based compensation expense, (2) amortization of intangible assets, (3) impairment charges or asset write-offs, (4) costs related to debt repayments and (5) costs related to public stock offerings. Non-GAAP adjusted net income is calculated using an estimated long-term effective tax rate.
  • Non-GAAP net income per share represents non-GAAP adjusted net income defined above divided by dilutive shares outstanding.
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA represents net (loss) income adjusted to exclude (1) interest expense, (2) income tax provision (benefit), (3) depreciation and amortization, (4) amortization of intangible assets, (5) stock-based compensation expense, (6) amortization of debt issuance costs, (7) other expense (income), net, (8) impairment charges or asset write-offs, and (9) costs related to public stock offerings.
  • Free cash flow represents cash flows from operations less capital expenditures.

Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when viewed with our results under U.S. GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provide useful information about our period-over-period growth and provide additional information that is useful for evaluating our operating performance and manage the cash needs of our business. Additionally, management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more meaningful comparison of our operating results against those of other companies in our industry, as well as on a period to-period basis, because these measures exclude items that are not representative of our operating performance, such as amortization of intangible assets, interest expense and fair value adjustments to the interest rate swap. Management believes that including these costs in our results of operations results in a lack of comparability between our operating results and those of our peers in the industry, the majority of which are not highly leveraged and do not have comparable amortization costs related to intangible assets. However, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP adjusted operating income, non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and, accordingly, should not be considered as alternatives to gross margin, operating income, net income (loss), and cash flows provided by operations as indicators of operating performance.

A reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in the press release.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
