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 income and 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.
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 benefit (expense). Restructuring costs relate to us initiating an effort in the first quarter 2018 to reduce headcount and sublease office space to align our strategic and financial objectives and to optimize resources for long-term growth. Investigation costs relate to costs incurred by us to investigate a complaint made by a former employee. We have excluded from adjusted EBITDA the net restructuring and investigation costs because we do not believe they reflect our core operations.
Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)
We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as 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 the description in adjusted EBITDA above); amortization of debt issuance costs; and non-cash income tax benefit (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 comprise primarily federal net operating loss carryforwards and federal research and experimentation credit carryforwards. We have excluded from non-GAAP net income (loss) the net restructuring and investigation costs because we do not believe they reflect our core operations.
