Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(In millions, except per share data)

(Unaudited)

 

(1)

Represents costs associated with the COVID-19 outbreak related to taking the necessary precautions for essential personnel to operate safely both in person as well as remotely.

(2)

Business transition and related costs are primarily related to the Restructuring Plan that Dexcom announced on February 21, 2019.

(3)

Represents costs related to a patent infringement lawsuit.

(4)

Represents costs associated with a settlement of litigation and proceedings in 2020 related to a patent infringement lawsuit.

(5)

Represents expense incurred in the fourth quarter of 2021 associated with the 2018 collaboration and licensing agreement with Verily Life Sciences.

(6)

Represents a gain from the sale of an equity investment.

(7)

Loss on extinguishment of debt is related to the conversions and/or repurchases of our senior convertible notes.

(8)

Non-cash interest expense represents accretion of the debt discount associated with our senior convertible notes.

(9)

For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021, tax adjustments were primarily related to the excess tax benefits from stock compensation vesting. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, we exclude the impact related to the Company’s valuation allowance release of $285.5 million.

(10)

Net income used for calculating diluted earnings per share for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was $363.2 million, including an add back of $8.0 million interest expense, net of tax, under the if-converted method for our 2023 senior convertible notes.

(11)

The adjustment for the three months ended December 31, 2021 is for the transition from GAAP diluted net loss per share, which excludes diluted shares, to non-GAAP diluted net income per share, which includes diluted shares. The adjustment for the three months ended December 31, 2020 is related to removing the dilutive impact of our 2023 senior convertible notes due to the tax benefit from the release of the Company’s valuation allowance as discussed in note 13 below.

(12)

The sum of the non-GAAP net income per share components may not equal the totals due to rounding.

(13)

The non-GAAP diluted weighted-average shares outstanding for the three months ended December 31, 2020 excludes 5.2 million shares related to our 2023 senior convertible notes which were dilutive for GAAP due to the tax benefit from the release of the Company’s valuation allowance. As the valuation allowance release is excluded from non-GAAP net income, we exclude the dilutive impact of the 2023 senior convertible notes from non-GAAP dilutive weighted-average shares outstanding. The 2023 senior convertible notes are also hedged through an anti-dilutive bond hedge arrangement.

ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The accompanying press release dated February 10, 2022 contains non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share as well as adjusted EBITDA.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. We believe that they provide useful information about operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our operating performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by senior management in our financial and operational decision making. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude amounts that we do not consider part of ongoing operating results when planning and forecasting and when assessing the performance of the organization and our senior management. We compute non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year. We may consider whether other significant items that arise in the future should be excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures.

We report non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles, differ from GAAP measures with the same names, and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar names that are used by other companies. We believe that non-GAAP financial measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures. We encourage investors to carefully consider our results under GAAP, as well as our supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliations between these presentations, to more fully understand our business.

Table E reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures in the press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

We exclude the following items from non-GAAP financial measures for non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share:

  • Amortization of acquired intangible assets
  • Collaborative research and development fees associated with milestone and incentive payments under our collaborative research and development arrangements paid or payable by issuing shares of our common stock
  • Business transition and related costs associated with acquisition, integration and business transition activities, including severance, relocation, consulting, leasehold exit costs, third party merger and acquisition costs, and other costs directly associated with such activities
  • COVID-19 costs associated with the COVID-19 outbreak related to taking the necessary precautions for essential personnel to operate safely both in person as well as remotely. Costs incurred include items like incremental payroll costs, consulting support, IT infrastructure and facilities related costs
  • Income or loss from equity investments
  • Intellectual property litigation costs
  • Litigation settlement costs
  • Non-cash interest expense on senior convertible notes for the accretion of the debt discount associated with our senior convertible notes
  • Loss on extinguishment of debt associated with repurchases and/or conversions of our senior convertible notes
  • Adjustments related to taxes for the excluded items above, as well as excess benefits or tax deficiencies from stock-based compensation, the one-time impact from release of valuation allowance in 2020, and the quarterly impact of other discrete items

Adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash operating charges for share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization as well as non-operating items such as interest income, interest expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, income and loss from equity investments, and income tax expense or benefit. For the reasons explained above, adjusted EBITDA also excludes non-cash collaborative research and development fees, business transition and related costs, COVID-19 costs, litigation settlement costs, and intellectual property litigation costs.
