Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our unaudited consolidated selected financial data presented on a basis consistent with GAAP, this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA; non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share. We have included non-GAAP measures in this press release because they are key measures used by our management to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends and generate future operating plans, make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital, and investments in initiatives that are focused on cultivating new markets for our solutions. We also use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, as performance measures under our executive bonus plan. Further, we believe that these non-GAAP measures of our financial results provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating Alarm.com's results of operations, business trends and financial condition. While we believe the use of these non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors and management in analyzing our financial performance, non-GAAP measures have inherent limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts and transactions that are included in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP measures do not serve as an alternative to GAAP nor do we consider our non-GAAP measures in isolation, accordingly we present non-GAAP financial measures only in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to consider non-GAAP measures only in conjunction with our GAAP financials and to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures which are included in this press release.

With respect to our expectations under "Financial Outlook" above, reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA  and Adjusted Net Income guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, non-ordinary course litigation expense and acquisition-related expense can have unpredictable fluctuations based on unforeseen activity that is out of our control and/or cannot reasonably be predicted. We expect the above charges to have a significant and potentially highly variable impact on our future GAAP financial results. The litigation expense we exclude from this calculation relates to non-ordinary course litigation expenses, including ongoing intellectual property litigation. Notably, we do not adjust for ordinary course legal expenses resulting from maintaining and enforcing our intellectual property portfolio and license agreements.

Alarm.com excludes one or more of the following items from non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation: We exclude stock-based compensation expense, which relates to equity incentives primarily awarded to employees of Alarm.com, because they are non-cash charges that we do not consider when assessing the operating performance of our business. Included in stock-based compensation expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 is $0.8 million related to the purchase of an employee's stock awards. Additionally, the determination of stock-based compensation expense can be calculated using various methodologies and is dependent upon subjective assumptions and other factors that vary on a company by company basis. Therefore, we believe that excluding stock-based compensation from our non-GAAP financial measures improves the comparability of our results to the results of other companies in our industry.

Litigation expense: We exclude non-ordinary course litigation expense because we do not consider legal costs incurred in litigation and litigation-related matters of non-ordinary course lawsuits, particularly costs involved in ongoing intellectual property litigation to be indicative of our core operating performance. We do not adjust for ordinary course legal expenses resulting from maintaining and enforcing our intellectual property portfolio and license agreements.

Acquisition-related expense: Included in operating expense are external incremental costs directly related to completing the acquisition and integration of the Connect and Piper businesses units from Icontrol Networks, Inc. Included in the acquisition-related expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 is $0.6 million of expense we incurred in the first quarter of 2016 prior to the announcement of the proposed acquisition in June 2016. We exclude acquisition-related expense from our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these transaction and integration costs on our total operating expenses.

Amortization: GAAP requires that operating expenses include the amortization of acquired intangible assets, which principally include acquired customer relationships, developed technology and trade names.  We exclude amortization of intangibles from our non-GAAP financial measures because we do not consider amortization when we evaluate our on-going business operations, nor do we factor amortization expense into our evaluation of potential acquisitions, or our measurement of the performance of those acquisitions. We believe that the exclusion of amortization expense enables the comparison of Alarm.com's performance to other companies in our industry as other companies may be more or less acquisitive than Alarm.com and therefore amortization expense may vary significantly by company based on their acquisition history.

Interest expense: We exclude interest expense in calculating our adjusted EBITDA calculation. For non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to common stockholders and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share - basic and diluted, we do not exclude interest expense. We made this retrospective change in the second quarter of 2016. For 2015 and the first quarter of 2016, we excluded interest expense from all of our non-GAAP measures. During these periods, the amount of interest expense ranged from $41,000 to $50,000 per quarter and was primarily related to our debt facility.

Other income / (expense), net: We exclude other income / (expense), net because we do not consider it part of our ongoing results of operations.
