Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated selected financial data presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders, non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, and non-GAAP weighted average fully diluted common shares outstanding. We have included non-GAAP measures in this press release because they are key measures used by our management to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends and generate future operating plans, make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital, and investments in initiatives that are focused on cultivating new markets for our solutions. We believe that these non-GAAP measures of our financial results provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating's results of operations, business trends and financial condition. While we believe the use of these non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors and management in analyzing our financial performance, non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts and transactions that are included in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP measures do not serve as an alternative to GAAP nor do we consider our non-GAAP measures in isolation, accordingly we present non-GAAP financial measures only in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to consider non-GAAP measures only in conjunction with our GAAP financials and to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures which are included in this press release.

With respect to our expectations under "Financial Outlook" above, reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, the measures and effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results. excludes one or more of the following items from non-GAAP financial measures:

Dividends paid to participating securities and income allocated to participating securities. Dividends paid to participating securities relate to $19.0 million of the $20.0 million June 2015 cash dividends paid in June 2015 to our preferred stockholders at the rate of (1) $0.36368 per share of Series A preferred stock and (2) $0.72736 per share of Series B preferred stock and Series B-1 preferred stock. We are excluding these dividends and income allocated to participating securities to improve the comparability of our results from period to period. Immediately prior to the completion of our offering on July 1, 2015, all of our outstanding shares of preferred stock converted into an aggregate of 35,017,884 shares of our common stock and, in future periods, all of our net income will be available to common stockholders.

Stock-based compensation: We exclude stock-based compensation expense, which relates to equity incentives primarily awarded to employees of, because they are non-cash charges that we do not consider when assessing the operating performance of our business. Included in the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 stock-based compensation expense is $0.8 million related to the repurchase of an employee's stock awards. Additionally, the determination of stock-based compensation expense can be calculated using various methodologies and is dependent upon subjective assumptions and other factors that vary on a company by company basis. Therefore, we believe that excluding stock-based compensation from our non-GAAP financial measures improves the comparability of our results to the results of other companies in our industry.

Litigation expense: We exclude litigation expense because we do not consider legal costs incurred in intellectual property litigation to be indicative of our core operating performance.

Amortization: GAAP requires that operating expenses include the amortization of acquired intangible assets, which principally include acquired customer relationships, developed technology and trade names. We exclude amortization of intangibles for our non-GAAP financial measures because we do not consider amortization when we evaluate our on-going business operations, nor do we factor amortization expense into our evaluation of potential acquisitions, or our measurement of the performance of those acquisitions. We believe that the exclusion of amortization expense enables the comparison of's performance to other companies in our industry as other companies may be more or less acquisitive than and therefore amortization expense may vary significantly by company based on their acquisition history.

Interest expense: We exclude interest expense because we do not consider it part of our ongoing results of operations.

Other (expense) / income, net: We exclude other (expense) / income, net because we do not consider it part of our ongoing results of operations.
