Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains financial information and performance measures determined by methods other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). Vanda's management believes these non-GAAP measures provide a greater understanding of ongoing operations and enhance comparability of results with prior periods as well as demonstrate the effects of significant gains and charges in the current period.
Vanda believes that a meaningful analysis of its financial performance requires an understanding of the factors underlying that performance. Vanda's management believes that these non-GAAP metrics are useful supplements for it and investors to Vanda's GAAP financial information because these measures exclude significant elements which management believes are not reflective of Vanda's operating results. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. In addition, it is subject to inherent limitations as it reflects the exercise of judgments by management in determining this non-GAAP financial measure.
This press release includes a projection of 2017 non-GAAP Operating expenses, excluding cost of goods sold, a forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure under the heading "2017 Financial Guidance". This non-GAAP financial measure is determined by excluding cost of goods sold, stock-based compensation and intangible asset amortization. Vanda is unable to reconcile this non-GAAP guidance to GAAP because it is difficult to predict the future impact of these adjustments.
This non-GAAP financial measure, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies since not all companies may calculate these measures in an identical manner and, therefore, they are not necessarily an accurate measure of comparison between companies.
