1 A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
For the fourth quarter and full year 2017, Mindbody expects to report:
- Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 in the range of $48.5 million to $49.5 million, representing 27% to 30% growth over the fourth quarter of 2016.
- Revenue for the full year of 2017 in the range of $181.4 million to $182.4 million, representing approximately 31% growth over the full year of 2016.
- Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2017 in the range of $0.0 to $1.0 million and diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the fourth quarter of approximately 48.8 million shares.
- Non-net loss for the full year of 2017 in the range of $(1.0) million to $0.0 and weighted average shares outstanding for the full year of approximately 44.3 million shares.
The outlook for non-GAAP net income (loss) excludes estimates for stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis because we do not provide guidance on GAAP net loss, primarily as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. In particular, stock-based compensation expense is impacted by MINDBODY’s future hiring and retention needs, as well as the future fair market value of MINDBODY’s Class A common stock, all of which is difficult to predict and is subject to constant change. The actual amount of these expenses during 2017 will have a significant impact on MINDBODY’s future GAAP financial results. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In this press release, MINDBODY has provided financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). We disclose the following historical non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, basic and diluted. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in understanding and evaluating ongoing operating results and trends in the same manner as our management and board of directors. Our use of these non-GAAP financial measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. Because of these and other limitations, you should consider these non-GAAP financial measures along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. We have provided a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as our net loss before stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, provision for income taxes, and other income (expense), net, which consisted of interest income (expense), net, and other income (expense), net.
We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this press release because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Adjusted EBITDA has a number of limitations, including the following: (1) although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; (2) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs, the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation, or tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; and (3) other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, basic and diluted
We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as the respective GAAP balance attributable to common stockholders adjusted for: (1) stock-based compensation expense and (2) amortization of acquired intangible assets. Non-GAAP net income per share, basic and diluted, is calculated as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted-average shares outstanding and the diluted weighted-average shares outstanding, respectively. Non-GAAP net loss per share, basic and diluted, is calculated as non-GAAP net loss divided by the weighted-average shares outstanding. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2016, we changed these definitions to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, in addition to the other adjustments that have been previously reported. Adjusting for this item is consistent with how management internally evaluates and assesses our ongoing core operational performance. While management’s view of our ongoing operational performance has not changed significantly from prior periods, amortization of acquired intangible assets has and may continue to vary from period to period due to episodic acquisitions completed, rather than our ongoing business operations. Accordingly, we believe that excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets provides a more comprehensive understanding of our core operating results, enables more meaningful comparisons with our historical results and better aligns with our disclosures with our peers. These changes have been applied retroactively to all periods presented. These non-GAAP financial measures have a number of limitations, including the following: these non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation expense, which has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in MINDBODY’s business; and other companies, including companies in our industry, may exclude different non-recurring items in their calculation of these non-GAAP financial measures, which reduces their usefulness as a comparative measure.
