Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose Adjusted EBITDA and Pro Forma non-GAAP EPS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and other certain non-cash statement of operations items. We define Pro Forma non-GAAP EPS as net income per diluted share, calculated on a pro forma basis to give effect to the conversion of all of our outstanding convertible preferred stock and redeemable convertible preferred stock into common stock, which occurred on August 4, 2014 in connection with our IPO, as if such conversion occurred at the beginning of the fiscal year. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. The company cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare current results with results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies. Whenever we use these non-GAAP financial measures, we provide a reconciliation of the applicable non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed in the tables below.
