1) Amortization of acquired inventory step-up relates to the inventory acquired in the AngioScore acquisition.

2) Acquisition transaction, integration and other costs relate to the AngioScore and Stellarex acquisitions, which closed on June 30, 2014 and January 27, 2015, respectively, and included investment banking fees, accounting, consulting, and legal fees, severance and retention costs, and non-recurring costs associated with establishing manufacturing operations to support the Stellarex program. In addition, these costs included $1.2 million in the three months ended September 30, 2014, and $2.5 million and $18.9 million in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively, for legal fees, including legal fees and costs advanced, associated with a patent and breach of fiduciary duty matter in which AngioScore is the plaintiff.

3) Acquisition-related intangible asset amortization relates primarily to intangible assets acquired in the AngioScore acquisition in June 2014 and the Stellarex acquisition in January 2015.

4) Contingent consideration expense represents the accretion of the estimated contingent consideration liability related to future amounts payable to former AngioScore stockholders primarily based on sales of the AngioScore products and achievement of regulatory milestones.

5) During the three months ended September 30, 2015, we remeasured the contingent consideration liability related to the AngioScore regulatory milestones to its fair value and reduced it by approximately $4.3 million. The intangible asset impairment of $2.5 million was to record a partial impairment of the in-process research and development intangible assets acquired as part of the AngioScore acquisition.

During the three months ended June 30, 2015, we remeasured the contingent consideration liability related to the future AngioScore revenue-related payments to its fair value and reduced it by approximately $17.8 million. This reduction was the result of a decrease in our revenue estimates for the AngioSculpt products.

6) Income tax benefit for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 included a tax benefit of $1.3 million resulting from a reduction in the valuation allowance against our deferred tax assets related to the acquisition of AngioScore.

7) Per share amounts may not add due to rounding.

8) Acquisition transaction, integration and other costs consist of integration costs for the Stellarex and AngioScore acquisitions of $8.9 million and legal fees of $19.5 million, which includes legal fees and costs advanced, associated with a patent and breach of fiduciary duty matter in which AngioScore is the plaintiff.

9) Acquisition-related intangible asset amortization relates primarily to intangible assets acquired in the AngioScore acquisition in June 2014 and the Stellarex acquisition in January 2015. Contingent consideration expense represents the accretion of the estimated contingent consideration liability related to future amounts that may be payable to former AngioScore stockholders primarily based on sales of the AngioScore products and achievement of regulatory milestones.

Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental measures to analyze the underlying trends in our business, assess the performance of our core operations, establish operational goals and forecasts that are used in allocating resources and evaluate our performance period over period and in relation to our competitors' operating results.

The impact of foreign exchange rates is highly variable and difficult to predict. We use a constant currency basis to show the impact from foreign exchange rates on current period revenue compared to prior period revenue using the prior period's foreign exchange rates. In order to properly understand the underlying business trends and performance of our ongoing operations, we believe that investors may find it useful to consider the impact of excluding changes in foreign exchange rates from our revenue.

We believe presenting the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release provides investors greater transparency to the information used by our management for financial and operational decision-making and allows investors to see our results "through the eyes" of management. We also believe providing this information better enables our investors to understand our operating performance and evaluate the methodology used by management to evaluate and measure such performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Some limitations associated with using these non-GAAP financial measures are provided below:

  • Management exercises judgment in determining which types of charges or other items should be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures used.
  • Amortization expense, while not requiring cash settlement, is an ongoing and recurring expense and has a material impact on GAAP net income or loss and reflects costs to us not reflected in non-GAAP net loss. The intangible asset impairment, while not requiring cash settlement, reflects an economic cost to us not reflected in non-GAAP net loss.
  • Items such as the acquisition transaction and integration costs, contingent consideration expense and the change in fair value of contingent consideration liability excluded from non-GAAP net loss can have a material impact on cash flows and GAAP net loss and reflect economic costs to us not reflected in non-GAAP net loss.
  • Revenue growth rates stated on a constant currency basis, by their nature, exclude the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates, which may have a material impact on GAAP revenue.
  • Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and therefore other companies may calculate similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.
