Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and the Rule of 40 framework are non-GAAP metrics. We are not providing a reconciliation of guidance or targets for adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin or Rule of 40 to GAAP net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because we are unable to predict certain items included in GAAP net income without unreasonable efforts.
We report financial results in accordance with GAAP. We also evaluate our performance using certain non-GAAP financial metrics, including adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin and the Rule of 40 framework. Our management believes that these non-GAAP measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial metrics, provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business.
These non-GAAP financial measures are not measures of performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives or substitutes for the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful for the purposes described below, they have limitations associated with their use, since they exclude items that may have a material impact on our reported results and may be different from similar measures used by other companies.
We define adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, long-term incentive compensation, restructuring and other related charges, and certain non-recurring items, including acquisition related costs, lease exit costs, rebranding costs, and non-routine shareholder matters. We use adjusted EBITDA as a simplified measure of performance for use in communicating our performance to investors and analysts and for comparisons to other companies within our industry. As a performance measure, we believe that adjusted EBITDA presents a view of our operating results that is most closely related to serving our customers. By excluding interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, long-term incentive compensation, impairment of intangible assets, restructuring costs, and certain other non-recurring items, we are able to evaluate performance without considering decisions that, in most cases, are not directly related to meeting our customers’ requirements and were either made in prior periods (e.g., depreciation, amortization, long-term incentive compensation, non-routine shareholder matters), deal with the structure or financing of the business (e.g., interest, one-time strategic action costs, restructuring costs, impairment charges) or reflect the application of regulations that are outside of the control of our management team (e.g., taxes). In addition, removing the impact of these items helps us compare our core business performance with that of our competitors.
We define adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue for a specified period.
We define the Rule of 40 as the sum of (i) our adjusted EBITDA margin for a specified period plus (ii) our year-over-year revenue growth rate, expressed as a percentage, for the same period. For example, a Rule of 40 attainment level of 30% would mean that the sum of our adjusted EBITDA margin for a specified period plus the year-over-year revenue growth rate for that period would equal 30%. We use the Rule of 40 as a financial framework because it is a well-known framework in our industry, and therefore helpful to our investors; it allows us to measure our progress in achieving a balance between adjusted EBITDA margins and revenue growth; and it enables us to measure our financial performance against those of our peers.
