Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company's stated results include certain non-GAAP measures, including net loss, weighted average shares outstanding, and net loss per share. Non-GAAP net loss excludes stock-based compensation as these expenses are non-cash items that are difficult to predict and are often excluded by other companies. Additionally, non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding, the denominator for the non-GAAP net loss per share calculation, assumes the conversion of preferred stock and the issuance of common stock as part of the Company's Initial Public Offering had occurred at the beginning of the applicable period. The Company considers these events to be non-routine, and believes these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors.
The Company considers these non-GAAP measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operational performance of the Company and are used by the Company's management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the financial performance of a company. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the Company's operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
