Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this release, Fleetmatics’ non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP adjusted earnings, non-GAAP diluted adjusted earnings per share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are not presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations of results of operations. Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin exclude share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP adjusted earnings and non-GAAP diluted adjusted earnings per share exclude share-based compensation; amortization of intangible assets; foreign currency transaction (gain) loss; certain non-recurring litigation and settlement costs; certain non-recurring secondary public offering costs; acquisition-related transaction costs; the tax effects related to these items, and the tax reserve component of the income tax provision.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) plus (benefit) provision for income taxes; interest (income) expense, net; foreign currency transaction (gain) loss, net; depreciation and amortization of property and equipment; amortization of capitalized in-vehicle devices owned by customers; amortization of intangible assets; share-based compensation; certain non-recurring litigation and settlement costs; certain non-recurring secondary public offering costs; and acquisition-related transaction costs.

We calculate our net churn for a period by dividing (i) the number of vehicles under subscription added from existing customers less vehicles under subscription lost from existing customers over that period by (ii) the total vehicles under subscription at the beginning of that period. A positive net churn in each period means we added more vehicles from existing customers than we lost from those customers during the particular period.

Management presents these non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the company's performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the company's financial and operational performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We intend to provide these non-GAAP financial measures as part of our future earnings discussions and, therefore, the inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures will provide consistency in our financial reporting. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

The Company’s earnings press releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations can be found on the Investors section of the Company’s web site at ir.fleetmatics.com.
