In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements because they contain words such as may, will, should, expects, plans, anticipates, could, intends, target, projects, contemplates, believes, estimates, predicts, potential or continue or the negative of these words or other similar terms or expressions that concern our expectations, strategy, plans or intentions. Forward-looking statements in this press release include, but are not limited to, Twitter s 3 strategies and business plans and Twitter s expectations regarding its revenue, adjusted EBITDA, capital expenditures and stock-based compensation expense for the third quarter and full year Twitter s expectations and beliefs regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include the possibility that: our user base and engagement do not continue to grow; advertisers reduce or discontinue their spending on Twitter; data partners reduce or discontinue their purchases of data licenses from Twitter; and Twitter experiences expenses that exceed its expectations. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in Twitter s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Additional information will also be set forth in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to Twitter as of the date hereof, and Twitter disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, except as required by law. Non-GAAP Financial Measures To supplement Twitter s financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, Twitter considers certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including adjusted EBITDA, non-gaap net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA margin and non-gaap EPS. Twitter defines adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization expense, interest and other expenses and provision (benefit) for income taxes; and Twitter defines non- GAAP net income (loss) as net loss adjusted to exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets and the income tax effects related to acquisitions. Adjusted EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing adjusted EBITDA by revenue. Twitter uses the non-gaap financial measures of adjusted EBITDA, non-gaap net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA margin and non-gaap EPS in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Twitter believes that adjusted EBITDA, non-gaap net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA margin and non-gaap EPS help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be masked by the effect of the expenses that we exclude in adjusted EBITDA, non-gaap net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA margin and non-gaap EPS. Twitter also believes that adjusted EBITDA, non-gaap net income (loss), adjusted EBITDA margin and non- GAAP EPS provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of Twitter s past performance and future prospects and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by Twitter s management in its financial and operational decision-making. Twitter uses these measures to establish budgets and operational goals for managing its business and evaluating its performance. Twitter is presenting these non- GAAP financial measures to assist investors in seeing Twitter s operating results through the eyes of management, and because it believes that these measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing Twitter s core business operating results over multiple periods with other companies in its industry. These non-gaap financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-gaap financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies. For future periods, Twitter is unable to provide a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net loss as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, depreciation and amortization expense, interest and other expenses and provision (benefit) for income taxes, that are expected to be incurred in the future. 4 Contacts Investors: Nils Erdmann Press: Jim Prosser 5 TWITTER, INC.
