Use of Non-GAAP Measures
Dermira is providing non-GAAP operating expenses that do not include stock-based compensation expense. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Dermira's management uses the non-GAAP information internally to evaluate its ongoing business, continuing operational performance and cash requirements, and believes the non-GAAP information is useful to investors as it provides a basis for evaluating Dermira's cash requirements and additional insight into the underlying operating results and Dermira's ongoing performance in the ordinary course of its operations.
This non-GAAP measure may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, this non-GAAP measure is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Dermira believes that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with its results of operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate Dermira's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.
Dermira excludes from its non-GAAP operating expenses stock-based compensation expense, which consists primarily of expenses for stock options under Accounting Standards Codification 718, Compensation–Stock Compensation. Dermira excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP operating expense measure primarily because it is a non-cash expense that Dermira does not believe is reflective of ongoing operating results in the period incurred.
