This press release contains forward-looking statements, including those in management quotations and under the caption “Business Outlook”. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the words "may," "will," "expect," "intend," "plan," "objective," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "predict," "project," "potential," "continue" and "ongoing," or the negative of these terms, or other comparable terminology intended to identify statements about the future. All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements about our growth strategy; our operating results, including revenue, gross margin, net loss and adjusted EBITDA; market trends; and quotations from management. These forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that could cause actual results and the timing of events to differ materially from future results that are expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include our history of net losses and limited operating history, which make it difficult to evaluate our prospects, our fluctuating quarterly results of operations, and our dependence on a limited number of customers in a highly competitive industry. These and other risk factors are discussed under “Risk Factors” in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 that has been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and in our future filings and reports with the SEC, including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to YuMe as of the date hereof, and YuMe assumes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), we report adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We calculate adjusted EBITDA as net income, excluding income taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in understanding our operating results in the same manner as management and the board of directors. This non-GAAP information is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP information presented by other companies. Non-GAAP financial information should not be viewed as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Users of this non-GAAP financial information should consider the types of events and transactions for which adjustments have been made.
We have included adjusted EBITDA in this release because it is a key measure we use to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our operating results because it excludes some expenses that may mask underlying trends.
In the table following the financial statements attached to this press release, the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. With respect to adjusted EBITDA expectations provided under “Business Outlook” above, quantitative reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is not feasible, because unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price makes it difficult to estimate accurately future stock-based compensation expenses that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures. We expect the variability of the above charges may have a significant and unpredictable impact on our future GAAP financial results.
1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net income, adjusted to exclude income taxes, interest, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation. We believe that adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as management and the board of directors. This non-GAAP information is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP information of other companies. Non-GAAP information should not be viewed as a substitute for, or superior to, net income prepared in accordance with GAAP as a measure of our profitability or liquidity. Users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions for which adjustments have been made.
