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, if applicable for the periods presented, the effects of stock-based compensation, depreciation, investigation costs, restructuring costs and other expenses that we believe do not reflect our core operating performance. Our key non-GAAP performance measures include adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss), the definitions of which are 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 items can provide useful information for period-to-period comparisons of our business to allow investors and others to understand and evaluate 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.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define adjusted EBITDA differently in this report than we have in the past, due to loss on debt extinguishment incurred in connection with the December 2019 repayment of our senior credit facility. We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding, if applicable for the periods presented, the effects of stock-based compensation; depreciation; investigation costs; restructuring costs; other income, net; interest expense; loss on debt extinguishment and income tax benefit (expense). We have excluded loss on debt extinguishment because we do not believe they reflect our core operations. The exclusion of loss on debt extinguishment does not impact adjusted EBITDA previously reported for prior periods.

Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)

We define non-GAAP net income (loss) differently in this report than we have in the past due to the prepayment penalty on debt extinguishment incurred in connection with repayment of our senior credit facility and amortization of debt discount related to the equity component of the convertible notes we issued in December 2019. Amortization of debt issuance costs and non-cash income tax benefit (expense) are no longer excluded from non-GAAP net income (loss). We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding, if applicable for the periods presented, the effects of stock-based compensation; depreciation; investigation costs; restructuring costs; amortization of debt discount related to the equity component of our convertible notes; and prepayment penalty on debt extinguishment. We have revised the prior period non-GAAP net income (loss) to conform to current period presentation. Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be accounted for as separate liability and equity components in a manner that reflects our non-convertible debt borrowing rate. This results in the debt component being treated as though it was issued at a discount, with the debt discount being accreted as additional non-cash interest expense over the term of the notes using the effective interest method. As a result, we believe that excluding this non-cash interest expense attributable to the debt discount in calculating our non-GAAP net income (loss) is useful because this interest expense is not indicative of our ongoing operational performance. We incurred prepayment penalty on debt extinguishment in connection with the December 2019 repayment of our senior credit facility, which was included in loss on debt extinguishment in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. Because of the non-recurring nature of the prepayment fees, we believe this expense is not representative of ongoing operation costs.
