Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding Upland's financial results, Upland has disclosed in the table below and elsewhere in this press release Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Upland provided a reconciliation below of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Upland defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss, calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus discontinued operations, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, net, other expense (income), net, provision for income taxes, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses, and one-time litigation expense.

Upland discloses Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by management, investors, and others to understand and evaluate our financial and operating performance, establish our annual operating budgets and operational goals and to assess the effectiveness of our business strategies. Upland believes it also provides more consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates period-to-period comparisons of our operations and also facilitates comparisons with other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. However, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA together with other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our other GAAP results.

Upland's 2015 revenue guidance excludes the impact of reductions due to deferred revenue discounts as a result of GAAP purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisitions of Solution Q, Inc. and Mobile Commons, Inc. in the fourth quarter of 2014. Upland estimates the total amount of any such adjustments in 2015 to be less than $250 thousand.

Upland's earnings press releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations can be found in the financial tables that accompany this release.
