Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Key Metrics:

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related costs, amortization of intangible assets acquired in mergers and acquisitions, and related tax effects. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance and regularly review these measures as we evaluate our business.

We believe these non-GAAP measures provide investors and other users of our financial information consistency and comparability with our past financial performance and facilitate period to period comparisons of operations. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating our operating performance compared to that of other companies in our industry, as they generally eliminate the effects of certain items that may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance.

We use these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP measures as part of our overall assessment of our performance, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and quarterly forecasts, to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies and to communicate with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. The definitions of our non-GAAP measures may differ from the definitions used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. In addition, other companies may not publish these or similar metrics. Thus, our non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We compensate for these limitations by providing investors and other users of our financial information a reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to the related GAAP financial measures. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure and to view our non-GAAP measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures attached to this release.

With respect to Coupa’s guidance as provided under “Business Outlook” above, Coupa has not reconciled its expectations as to non-GAAP loss from operations to GAAP loss from operations or non-GAAP net loss per share to GAAP net loss per share because certain items excluded from non-GAAP operating loss, such as charges related to stock-based compensation expense, litigation-related costs, amortization of intangible assets acquired in mergers and acquisitions, and related tax effects, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time. The effect of these excluded items may be significant.

We also use key metrics such as cumulative spend under management, which represents the aggregate amount of money that has been transacted through our core Coupa platform for all of our customers collectively since we launched our platform. We calculate this metric by aggregating the actual transaction data, such as invoices, purchase orders and expenses, from customers on our core Coupa platform. While we do not believe this metric is directly correlated to our financial results, we believe the adoption of our core platform, as evidenced by growth in cumulative spend under management, drives additional value to our customers, which will enhance our ability to acquire new customers and to increase renewals and upsells to existing customers.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This release includes forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical facts, including the statements in “Business Outlook" are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on Coupa’s current expectations and projections about future events and trends that Coupa believes may affect its financial condition, results of operations, strategy, short- and long-term business operations and objectives, and financial needs.

These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may cause actual results to differ materially, including: we have a limited operating history, which makes it difficult to predict our future operating results; if we are unable to attract new customers, the growth of our revenues will be adversely affected; because our platform is sold to large enterprises with complex operating environments, we encounter long and unpredictable sales cycles; the markets in which we participate are intensely competitive; our business depends substantially on our customers renewing their subscriptions and purchasing additional subscriptions from us; risks and liabilities related to breach of our security measures or unauthorized access to customer data; if we fail to develop widespread brand awareness cost-effectively, our business may suffer; and we have experienced rapid growth in recent periods, and if we fail to manage our growth effectively, we may be unable to execute our business plan, maintain high levels of service or adequately address competitive challenges.

These and other risks and uncertainties that could affect Coupa’s future results are included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in Coupa’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on June 9, 2017, which is available at www.investors.coupa.com and on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Further information on potential risks that could affect actual results will be included in other filings Coupa makes with the SEC from time to time.

The forward-looking statements in this release reflect Coupa’s expectations as of September 5, 2017. Coupa undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason after the date of this release to conform these statements to actual results or to changes in our expectations.
