Non-GAAP Financial Measures & Definitions

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Mavenir discloses non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, which are non-GAAP financial measures, as supplemental measures. Non-GAAP operating loss represents operating loss before depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation. Non-GAAP net loss represents non-GAAP operating loss after interest and taxes, as adjusted for uncertain tax positions component. Non-GAAP net loss per share represents non-GAAP net loss divided by our adjusted weighted average common shares outstanding, which assumes the conversion of preferred shares as of the beginning of the period. These measures are used by management to evaluate our business and management believes these measures may help investors evaluate the Company's fundamental operational performance. Management believes these non-GAAP measures facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period by excluding potential differences caused by variations in capital structures, tax position, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation expense and certain other expenses. These measures are not measures of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or a substitute for net loss, operating loss or other performance measures as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Please refer to the accompanying tables entitled “Reconciliation of GAAP Financial Measures to Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Non-GAAP Net Loss Per Share” for a reconciliation of consolidated GAAP operating loss to non-GAAP operating loss, consolidated GAAP net loss to non-GAAP net loss.

In determining our guidance for the second quarter and full year of 2014 set forth in “Guidance,” we have chosen to use non-GAAP measures for all metrics other than revenue. The non-GAAP metrics exclude the effects of depreciation, amortization, foreign exchange gains or losses, and stock-based compensation. The effects of these two items are difficult to forecast in advance as they relate to future foreign exchange rates and future stock prices, which are subject to external factors that are difficult to predict. As a result, Mavenir does not give guidance on GAAP metrics other than revenue.

Forward-looking statements include the statements under “Guidance” above, statements regarding Mavenir’s expectations with respect to revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share, as well as statements about transformation of mobile networks by mobile service providers, their transition to all-IP technology and software-based solutions and Mavenir’s views about its ability to deliver solutions that enable this transformation and transition. Forward-looking statements can generally be identified by words such as "anticipates," "may," "can," "believes," "expects," "projects," "intends," "likely," “target,” "will," "to be" and other expressions that are predictions or indicate future events, trends or prospects, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words.

Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements include risks regarding the timing of the adoption of 4G by mobile service providers around the world; mobile service providers’ investment in next-generation communications technology; our ability to sell solutions to mobile service providers, particularly those serving large numbers of customers; the length and variability of the sales cycles for our solutions; actions taken by our competitors; our ability to negotiate acceptable financial terms with our mobile service provider customers; the performance of our solutions when implemented in mobile service provider networks; management’s ability to accurately forecast Mavenir’s financial results; the timing of revenues and the application of complex revenue recognition rules to such revenues; prolonged negative economic conditions in domestic and global markets; and other factors described in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("the SEC"), including under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and in Mavenir’s other SEC filings. There is no assurance that Mavenir’s expectations will be realized. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if Mavenir’s underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those expected, estimated or projected.
