Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the consolidated financial figures produced and presented by GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP measure throughout this news release: Margin after adjusting for EBITDA.
We subtract revenue from our Root warrants from our net loss plus income tax expense, interest expense, other (income) expense, net, depreciation and amortisation in cost of sales and SG&A, goodwill impairment, share-based compensation including the CEO Milestone Gift in cost of sales and SG&A, and restructuring costs.
With the ADESA Purchase, we no longer include the negligible depreciation and amortisation expenses that have been a part of cost of sales in the total. Margin from Adjusted EBITDA to Revenues is the ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to Revenues.
Our investors and we find that Adjusted EBITDA Margin is helpful because it eliminates the impact of certain financial and capital structure variables that we do not feel represent our ongoing business.
