Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the financial measures presented in this press release in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), EnerNOC also presents a non-GAAP financial measure relating to adjusted EBITDA.
A “non-GAAP financial measure” refers to a numerical measure of the Company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position, or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the Company’s financial statements. EnerNOC provides the non-GAAP measure listed above as additional information relating to EnerNOC’s operating results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial information presented here should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for or superior to, the financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered measures of the Company’s liquidity. There are significant limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, these measures may differ from the non-GAAP information, even where similarly titled, used by other companies and therefore should not be used to compare the Company’s performance to that of other companies.
The non-GAAP measure used in this press release differ from GAAP in that they exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation, amortization expense related to acquisition-related intangible assets, as well as in certain measures, the related impact of these adjustments on the provision for income taxes. In addition, investors should note the following:
• EnerNOC defines “Adjusted EBITDA” as net income (loss), excluding depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, interest, income taxes and other income (expense). Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that are either not part of the Company’s core operations or do not require a cash outlay, such as stock-based compensation. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization expense, which is based on the Company’s estimate of the useful life of tangible and intangible assets. These estimates could vary from actual performance of the asset, are based on historic cost incurred to build out the Company’s deployed network, and may not be indicative of current or future capital expenditures.
EnerNOC’s management uses this non-GAAP measure when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. EnerNOC’s management believes that such measures help indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business, are important in comparing current results with prior period results, and are useful to investors and financial analysts in assessing the Company’s operating performance. For example, EnerNOC’s management considers adjusted EBITDA to be an important indicator of the Company’s operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of the Company’s historical operating trend.
