First Quarter 2017 Financial Outlook

Impinj provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations; actual results may differ materially. Please refer to the comments below regarding forward-looking statements. For the first quarter of 2017, Impinj currently expects:

  • Revenue in the range of $30.0 million to $31.5 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA in the range of a loss of $1.0 million to income of $0.5 million

All forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures in this section titled "First Quarter 2017 Financial Outlook" exclude non-cash income and expenses. Impinj has not reconciled guidance for these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures because some items that impact these measures are either not within our control or not reasonably predictable, at least not without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which we have prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (GAAP), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP gross margin, net income and earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA. In computing these non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude the effects of stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, non-cash interest and other income/expense, and non-cash income tax expense not considered to be indicative of our ongoing core business operating results. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain income, expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of our ongoing core business operating results. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance. 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.
