The total number of HSAs for which we serve as a non-bank custodian ("HSA Members") as of July 31, 2017 was 2.9 million, an increase of 26% from 2.3 million as of July 31, 2016.

Business outlook

We are increasing our business outlook for the year ended January 31, 2018. We are increasing our revenue outlook from a range between $222.0 million and $227.0 million to a range between $223.0 million and $228.0 million, our net income from a range between $33.0 million and $37.0 million to a range between $41.0 million and $45.0 million, our Adjusted EBITDA from a range between $78.0 million and $83.0 million to a range between $79.0 million and $84.0 million. We also expect our non-GAAP net income to be in a range between $39.0 million and $43.0 million, up from our prior range between $38.0 million and $42.0 million. Our non-GAAP net income is calculated by adding back to net income all non-cash stock-based compensation expense, net of an estimated statutory tax rate of 38%, and the impact of excess tax benefits due to the adoption of Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-09. Our non-GAAP net income outlook results in a non-GAAP net income per diluted share range between $0.64 and $0.68 (based on an estimated 62.0 million diluted weighted-average shares outstanding), up from our prior range between $0.62 and $0.67.

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used throughout this release to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is included with the financial tables at the end of this release.

Non-GAAP financial Information

To supplement our financial information presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. We define Adjusted EBITDA as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and other certain non-operating items. Non-GAAP net income is calculated by adding back to net income all non-cash stock-based compensation expense, net of an estimated statutory tax rate of 38%, and the impact of excess tax benefits due to the adoption of ASU 2016-09. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by diluted weighted-average shares outstanding.

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 GAAP; 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.
