Statement regarding use of non-GAAP financial measures

The Company reports non-GAAP results for revenue, gross profit and margins, operating loss and margins, net loss, basic and diluted net loss per share, adjusted EBITDA and gross billings in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's financial measures under GAAP include stock-based compensation expense, contra-revenue, acquisition-related items, depreciation expense, and other income/expense, net. Management believes the presentation of operating results that exclude these items provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the Company's core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. Management also believes that this supplemental non-GAAP information is therefore useful to investors in analyzing and assessing the Company's past and future operating performance.

Non-GAAP revenue is calculated as GAAP revenue excluding the non-GAAP contra-revenue adjustments associated with the issuance of equity to an affiliate of AT&T. Management believes non-GAAP revenue offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Gross Billings are calculated as non-GAAP revenue plus the quarterly sequential change in total deferred revenue. Management believes gross billings offer investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Non-GAAP gross profit is calculated as non-GAAP revenue less our non-GAAP cost of revenue. Management believes non-GAAP gross profit offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Non-GAAP gross margin is calculated as non-GAAP gross profit divided by non-GAAP revenue. Management believes non-GAAP gross margin offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Non-GAAP operating loss is calculated as GAAP operating loss plus non-GAAP revenue adjustments and non-GAAP cost of revenue and operating expense adjustments. Management believes non-GAAP operating loss offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Non-GAAP operating margin is calculated as non-GAAP operating loss divided by non-GAAP revenue. Management believes non-GAAP operating margin offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Non-GAAP net loss is calculated as GAAP net loss plus non-GAAP revenue adjustments and non-GAAP cost of revenue and operating expense adjustments. Management believes non-GAAP net loss offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share is calculated as non-GAAP net loss divided by the weighted average shares outstanding for the period. Management believes non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as gross billings minus non-GAAP cost of revenue and operating expenses plus depreciation expense. Management believes adjusted EBITDA offers investors useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business, and will help investors better understand our business.

Use of forward-looking statements

This release contains "forward-looking statements" regarding our performance, including in the section titled "Financial Outlook." Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on potentially inaccurate assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements. If any such risks or uncertainties materialize or if any of the assumptions prove incorrect, our results could differ materially from the results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements we make.

The important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) we have a history of losses, and we may not become profitable in the future, (ii) we have a limited operating history, which makes it difficult to predict our future results of operations, and (iii) we do not have an adequate history with our support subscription offerings or pricing models to accurately predict the long-term rate of support subscription customer renewals or adoption, or the impact these renewals and adoption will have on our revenues or results of operations.

Further information on these and other factors that could affect our financial results and the forward-looking statements in this press release are included in our Form 10-K filed on March 27, 2015, Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 filed on May 14, 2015 and in other filings we make with the Securities Exchange Commission from time to time, particularly under the caption Risk Factors.

We undertake no obligation, and do not intend, to update these forward-looking statements.
