About the Presentation of Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA represents net income (loss) adjusted for (1) interest expense, net of interest income, (2) income tax provision (benefit), (3) depreciation and amortization, (4) amortization of intangible assets, (5) stock-based compensation expense, (6) amortization of debt and equity issuance costs, (7) other (income) expense and (8) our grant receipts from government agencies that were received in a given period so that these receipts are reflected on a cash basis. Items (1) through (7) are excluded from net income (loss) internally when evaluating our operating performance. Item (8) is included as we believe this adjustment for grant receipts is indicative of our core operating performance both because it reflects our ability to secure and receive grant receipts in a given period and such receipts are matched with the expenses associated with initiating the business operations that those grant receipts were designed, in part, to offset. Management believes Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA allows investors to make a more meaningful comparison between our operating results over different periods of time, as well as with those of other companies in our industry, because it both includes grant receipts from government agencies and excludes items such as interest expense and other adjustments related to financing activities that we believe are not representative of our operating performance.
