Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and constant currency revenue.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses and expenditures that may not be indicative of our recurring core business operating results, such as our revenues excluding the impact for foreign currency fluctuations or our operating performance excluding not only non-cash charges, but also discrete cash charges that are infrequent in nature. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to our historical performance and liquidity as well as comparisons to our competitors' operating results. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and they are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the health of our business. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see the tables provided below in this release.

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 non-recurring litigation expenses.

Upland defines non-GAAP net income (loss) as its net income (loss), plus the impact of amortization of purchased intangible assets, amortization debt discount, adjustments to original acquisition-based purchase accounting, stock-based compensation expenses, third party acquisition-related costs, non-recurring litigation expenses, and the related tax effect of the adjustments above.

Upland defines constant currency revenue as reported revenue adjusted for foreign currency exchange rates. In order to compute constant currency revenue, Upland converts the current period's local currency revenue using the average exchange rates from the equivalent prior period to arrive at constant currency revenue. The foreign exchange impact equals the difference between the current period revenue in U.S. dollars and the current period revenue in constant currency.

Upland's revenue guidance excludes the impact of reductions due to deferred revenue discounts as a result of GAAP purchase accounting adjustments related to the acquisition of Ultriva, Inc. in the fourth quarter of 2015. Upland estimates the total amount of any such adjustments in the fourth quarter of 2015 to be less than $200 thousand.
