The risks and uncertainties referred to above include, but are not limited to, risks associated with LifeLock’s ability to achieve or maintain profitability on an annual basis; LifeLock’s ability to protect its customers’ confidential information; LifeLock’s ability to maintain and enhance its brand recognition and reputation; the competitive nature of the industries in which LifeLock conducts its business; LifeLock’s ability to maintain access to data sources; LifeLock’s ability to retain its existing customers and attract new customers; LifeLock’s ability to improve its services and develop and introduce new services with broad appeal; LifeLock’s ability to maintain existing and secure new relationships with strategic partners; the effects of laws, regulations, and enforcement; the outcome of any litigation or regulatory proceeding; LifeLock’s ability to protect its intellectual property and not infringe on the intellectual property of others; and other “Risk Factors” set forth in LifeLock’s most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

LifeLock, Inc. assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

LifeLock’s reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted net income, non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, and free cash flow. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, change in fair value of embedded derivative, other income (expense), income tax (benefit) expense, and share-based compensation. Non-GAAP adjusted net income is defined as net income (loss) adjusted for amortization, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, change in fair value of embedded derivatives, income tax benefit resulting from acquisitions, and share-based compensation. Non-GAAP adjusted net income per share is defined as Non-GAAP adjusted net income per share of stock assuming all preferred stock converted at the later of the start of the period or date of issuance and excluding the impact of warrants to acquire Series E and Series E-2 preferred stock. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less capital expenditures, which consist of purchases of property, equipment, and software.

LifeLock has included adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted net income, and non-GAAP adjusted net income per share in this press release because they are key measures used by LifeLock’s management and board of directors to understand and evaluate its core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve its annual budget, and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP adjusted net income can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of LifeLock’s core business. Additionally, adjusted EBITDA is a key financial measure used in determining management’s incentive compensation.

LifeLock has included free cash flow in this press release because it typically presents a more conservative measure of cash flow as purchases of property and equipment are necessary components of ongoing operations. LifeLock believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is useful in evaluating its business because free cash flow reflects the cash surplus available to fund the expansion of its business after payment of capital expenditures relating to the necessary components of ongoing operations. LifeLock also believes that the use of free cash flow provides consistency and comparability with its past financial performance, facilitates period-to-period comparisons of operations, and also facilitates comparisons with other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results.

Although adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP adjusted net income, and free cash flow are frequently used by investors in their evaluations of companies, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered alongside other financial performance measures.

LifeLock has not reconciled adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income guidance or non-GAAP adjusted net income per share guidance to net income per share guidance because it does not provide guidance for share-based compensation expense, provision for income taxes, interest income, interest expense, change in fair value of warrant liabilities, change in fair value of embedded derivatives, other income and expenses, depreciation expense or amortization of intangible assets, which are reconciling items between net income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA and net income (loss) and non-GAAP adjusted net income (loss). As items that impact net income (loss) are out of LifeLock’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, LifeLock is unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, reconciliation to net income (loss) is not available without unreasonable effort. For a reconciliation of historical non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures, see the reconciliation tables included in this press release.
