Third Quarter 2020 Financial Considerations
Impinj is continuing to monitor the impact of Covid-19 on its business, including how Covid-19 will affect customers, end users, suppliers and other business partners. However, given the uncertainty regarding the duration and severity of the epidemiological, economic and operational impacts of Covid-19, as of the date of this report Impinj cannot reasonably estimate the pandemic’s impact on its operating results for third-quarter 2020 or future periods.
For additional information regarding the impact of Covid-19 on our business, operating results, financial condition and prospects, please see Impinj’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q expected to be filed on the date hereof.
Proposed Settlement of Stockholder and Securities Class Action Lawsuits
Securities Class Action Lawsuits
On July 9, 2020, following a private settlement mediation with lead plaintiff in the federal securities class actions and plaintiff in the New York State securities class action discussed below, the parties in both actions executed a stipulation of settlement that resolves the claims asserted in both actions. The proposed settlement provides for a payment to the plaintiff class of $20.0 million. Our insurers will contribute approximately $14.6 million to the settlement, and we will contribute the remaining settlement amount of approximately $5.4 million. Accordingly, we recorded a provision of $5.4 million related to our estimated settlement amount to general and administrative expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020. The proposed settlement is subject to preliminary and, following notice to class members, final approval by the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington.
Shareholder Derivative Actions
On July 10, 2020, following a private settlement mediation, the parties in this action executed a stipulation of settlement to settle and resolve the claims asserted in this consolidated derivative action. The proposed settlement requires us to implement certain corporate governance changes and the payment of up to $900,000 to plaintiffs’ counsel for attorneys’ fees and expenses. Our insurers will contribute the entire amount paid for attorneys’ fees and expenses. The proposed settlement is subject to preliminary and, following notice to shareholders, final approval by the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. On July 15, 2020, the court entered an order requesting that the parties file supplemental briefing in respect of their joint motion for preliminary approval of the settlement. These supplemental briefs are due August 5, 2020.

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, our key non-GAAP performance measures include adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP net income (loss), as defined 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 these measures provides 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 similarly termed non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
We define adjusted EBITDA differently in this release than we have previously, by excluding proposed litigation settlements of class-action and derivative lawsuits including related costs, such as that we incurred in second-quarter 2020. Our consequent definition of adjusted EBITDA is 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; settlement and related costs; other income, net; interest expense; loss on debt extinguishment; and income tax benefit (expense). We have excluded settlement and related costs because we do not believe they reflect our core operations and us excluding them enables more consistent evaluation of our operating performances. Excluding the settlement and related costs 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 release than we have previously, by excluding proposed litigation settlements of class-action and derivative lawsuits including related costs, such as that we incurred in second-quarter 2020. Our consequent definition of non-GAAP net income (loss) is 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; settlement and related 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 our current period presentation. Excluding settlement and related costs did not impact non-GAAP net income previously reported for prior periods.
GAAP requires that certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion be accounted for as separate liability and equity components in a manner that reflects our non-convertible debt borrowing rate. This accounting results in the debt component being treated as though it was issued at a discount, with the debt discount being amortized as additional non-cash interest expense over the debt instrument term 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.
