“We delivered strong third quarter results led by Consumer revenue growth of 23 percent year-over-year, expanding profitability, and strong cash flow generation which is a testament to our team’s execution. Through more than 30 years of leadership and innovation we have built a trusted global cybersecurity brand by seamlessly securing a consumer’s digital experience and defending many of the world’s largest organizations from sophisticated attacks and nation-state threats. The cybersecurity landscape has never been more intense and the need for our solutions is as important as ever. We are very excited to embark on this next leg of our journey as a public company,” said Peter Leav, McAfee’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

FOUNDATION TECHNOLOGY WORLDWIDE LLC
APPENDIX A
EXPLANATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER ITEMS

Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Income Margin, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

We define adjusted operating income for the total Company as net income (loss), excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets, equity-based compensation expense, interest expense and other, net, provision for income tax expense, foreign exchange (gain) loss, net, and other costs that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. We define adjusted operating income for our Consumer and Enterprise segments as segment operating income (loss), excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets, equity-based compensation expense and other costs attributable to the segment that we do not believe are reflective of the segment’s ongoing operations. We present this reconciliation of adjusted operating income (loss) to operating income for Consumer and Enterprise segments because operating income (loss) is the primary measure of profitability used to assess segment performance and is therefore the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure for our operating segments. Adjusted operating income margin is calculated as adjusted operating income divided by net revenue. We define adjusted EBITDA as adjusted operating income, excluding the impact of depreciation expense and other non-operating costs. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by net revenue.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Margin

We define adjusted net income as net income (loss), excluding the impact of amortization of intangible assets, amortization of debt issuance costs, equity-based compensation expense, other costs, and certain non-recurring tax benefits and expenses that we do not believe to be reflective of our ongoing operations and the tax impact of these adjustments. Adjusted net income margin is calculated as adjusted net income divided by net revenue.

Adjustments for Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted Net Income

Below are additional information to the adjustments for adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net income:

(1)

 

As a result of the Sponsor Acquisition, cash awards were provided to certain employees who held Intel equity awards in lieu of equity in Foundation Technology Worldwide LLC. In addition, as a result of the Skyhigh acquisition, cash awards were provided to certain employees who held Skyhigh equity awards in lieu of equity in Foundation Technology Worldwide LLC and vest over multiple periods based on employee service requirements. As these rollover awards reflect one-time grants to former employees of the Predecessor Business and Skyhigh Networks in connection with these transactions, and the Company does not have a comparable cash-based compensation plan or program in existence, we believe this expense is not reflective of our ongoing results.

(2)

 

Represents both direct and incremental costs in connection with business acquisitions, including acquisition consideration structured as cash retention, third party professional fees, and other integration costs.

(3)

 

Represents both direct and incremental costs associated with our separation from Intel, including standing up our back office and costs to execute strategic restructuring events, including third-party professional fees and services, transition services provided by Intel, severance, and facility restructuring costs.

(4)

 

Represents management fees paid to certain affiliates of our Sponsors and Intel pursuant to the Management Services Agreement. The Management Services Agreement has been terminated subsequent to the IPO and we paid a one-time fee of $22 million to such parties in October 2020.

(5)

 

Represents costs incurred in connection with transformation of the business post-Intel separation. Also includes the cost of workforce restructurings involving both eliminations of positions and relocations to lower cost locations in connection with MAP and other transformational initiatives, strategic initiatives to improve customer retention, activation to pay and cost synergies, inclusive of duplicative run rate costs related to facilities and data center rationalization.

(6)

 

Represents severance to be paid for executive terminations not associated with a strategic restructuring event.

(7)

 

Represents the tax impact of all of the above adjustments, as well as excluding the non-recurring tax benefits and expenses related to changes resulting from tax legislation, the assessment or resolution of tax audits or other significant events.

Unlevered free cash flow

We define unlevered free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities add interest payments less capital expenditures. We consider unlevered free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business that can be used for strategic opportunities, including investing in our business, making strategic acquisitions, and strengthening the balance sheet.
