Property of Rimini Street ©2018 29 About Non - GAAP Financial Measures and Certain Key Metrics To provide investors and others with additional information regarding Rimini Street’s results, we have disclosed the followin g n on - GAAP financial measures and certain key metrics. We have described below Active Clients, Annualized Subscription Revenue and Revenue Retention Rate, each of which is a key operational metric for our business. In addition, we hav e disclosed EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA. Rimini Street has provided a reconciliation of each non - GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Due to a valuation allowance fo r o ur deferred tax assets, there were no tax effects associated with any of our non - GAAP adjustments. These non - GAAP financial measures are also described below. The primary purpose of using non - GAAP measures is to provide supplemental information that may prove useful to investors and to enable investors to evaluate our results in the same way management does. We also present the non - GAAP financial measures because we believe they assist investors in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consis ten t basis, as well as comparing our results against the results of other companies, by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Specifically, management uses these non - GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare our annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business; to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; to provide consistency and c omp arability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of our results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non - GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communication with our board of d irectors concerning our financial performance. Investors should be aware however, that not all companies define these non - GAAP measures consistently. An Active Client is a distinct entity that purchases our services to support a specific product, including a company, an educational or govern men t institution, or a business unit of a company. For example, we count as two separate active clients when support for two different products is being provided to the same entity. We believe that our ability to expand our activ e c lients is an indicator of the growth of our business, the success of our sales and marketing activities, and the value that our services bring to our clients. Annualized Subscription Revenue is the amount of subscription revenue recognized during a quarter and multiplied by four. This gives us an indication of the re venue that can be earned in the following 12 - month period from our existing client base assuming no cancellations or price changes occur during that period. Subscription revenue excludes any non - recurring revenue, which has been insignificant to date. Revenue Retention Rate is the actual subscription revenue (dollar - based) recognized over a 12 - month period from customers that were clients on the day prior to the start of such 12 - month period, divided by our Annualized Subscription Revenue as of the day prior to the start of the 12 - month period. Specifically, management is excluding the following items from its non - GAAP financial measures, as applicable, for the periods p resented: • Stock - Based Compensation Expense : The company’s compensation strategy includes the use of stock - based compensation to attract and retain employees. This strateg y is principally aimed at aligning the employee interests with those of our stockholders and to achieve long - term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. As a result, stock - based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period. • Litigation Costs, Net of Related Insurance Adjustments : Litigation costs and the associated insurance recoveries and adjustments to the deferred settlement liability relate to out sid e costs on the litigation activities, for which we are currently appealing the 2016 judgment and for which we have asserted certain counterclaims. These costs reflect the ongoing l iti gation we are involved with, and do not relate to the day - to - day operation or our core business of serving our clients. • Write - off of Deferred Financing Costs: The write - off of deferred financing costs relates to certain costs that were expensed in 2016 because we determined that the ar rangements related to these costs would not result in future financings when we completed our credit facility in June 2016. As such, these write - offs are not related to how we manage our business and operational decisions on an ongoing basis. • Loss on Embedded Derivatives and Redeemable Warrants, Net: Our credit facility includes features that were determined to be embedded derivatives requiring bifurcation and accounting as s eparate financial instruments. We have determined to exclude the gains and losses on embedded derivatives and redeemable warrants related to the change in fair valu e o f these instruments given the financial nature of this fair value requirement. We are not able to manage these amounts as part of our business operations nor are the costs core to servicing our clients and have excluded them. EBITDA is net loss, adjusted to exclude: interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA adjusted to exclude: other debt financing expenses, stock - based compensation expense, write - off of deferred financing costs, gains and losses on embedded derivatives and redeemable warrants, and litigation costs, net of insurance recoveries.
