Visits. RetailMeNot defines a visit as a group of interactions that take place on one of RetailMeNot's websites within a given time frame as measured by Google Analytics, a product that provides digital marketing intelligence. A single visit can contain multiple page views, events, social interactions, custom variables and e-commerce transactions. A single visitor can open multiple visits. Visits can occur on the same day, or over several days, weeks or months. As soon as one visit ends, there is then an opportunity to start a new visit. A visit ends either through the passage of time or a campaign change, with a campaign generally meaning arrival via search engine, referring site or campaign-tagged information. A visit ends through passage of time either after thirty minutes of inactivity or at midnight Pacific Time. A visit ends through a campaign change if a visitor arrives via one campaign or source, leaves the site, and then returns via another campaign or source. Visits for the period do not include interactions through our mobile applications.
Net Revenues Per Visit. Net revenues per visit is defined as net revenues for the period divided by visits for the period.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To provide investors with additional information regarding RetailMeNot's financial results, RetailMeNot has disclosed in the table below and elsewhere herein adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. RetailMeNot has provided a reconciliation below of adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. RetailMeNot defines adjusted EBITDA as net income plus depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, third-party acquisition-related costs, other non-cash operating expenses (including asset impairment charges and compensation-related charges associated with seller notes issued in connection with acquisitions), net interest expense, other non-operating income or expense (including changes in fair value of warrant liabilities and contingent consideration) and income taxes, net of any foreign exchange income or expense.
RetailMeNot discloses adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by RetailMeNot and its board of directors to understand and evaluate RetailMeNot's financial and operating performance, establish budgets and operational goals and as an element in determining executive compensation. RetailMeNot believes it also facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that RetailMeNot excludes in this non-GAAP financial measure and facilitates comparisons with other peer 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 you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of RetailMeNot's results as reported under GAAP. Because of these limitations, you should consider adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net income and RetailMeNot's other GAAP results.
