A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in this press release in the accompanying tables. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Business Outlook

Castlight provided 2017 non-GAAP pro forma revenue guidance of $138 to $142 million when the Company announced its strategic acquisition of Jiff on January 4, 2017. The Jiff transaction closed on April 3, 2017, and the Company is now providing 2017 GAAP revenue outlook for the combined company based on Jiff's inclusion in Castlight's financial results beginning the second quarter and incorporating the impact of the write down of deferred revenue associated with purchase accounting.

For the full year 2017, the Company expects GAAP revenue in the range of $132 million to $136 million dollars. A table included in this press release reconciles the full year GAAP revenue guidance with the previously-issued non-GAAP pro forma revenue range. Castlight expects full year 2017 non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $31 to $35 million and non-GAAP net loss per share of approximately $0.24 to $0.28 based on approximately 125 to 127 million shares.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Castlight Health's financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also use and provide investors and others with non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance, including non-GAAP pro forma revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. Non-GAAP pro forma revenue excludes the impact of the deferred revenue write-down and includes Jiff first quarter 2017 revenue. Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, and non-GAAP operating loss exclude stock-based compensation, litigation settlement, charges related to a reduction in workforce, capitalization and amortization of internal-use software and charges related to the acquisition and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable. For a detailed explanation of these non-GAAP measures, refer to Appendix A.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors and others, facilitate the analysis of the company's core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods, and can help enhance overall understanding of the company's historical financial performance.

We have provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, except that we have not reconciled our non-GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance for the full year 2017 to comparable GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, capitalization and amortization of internal-use software and charges related to the acquisition, which are reconciling items between GAAP and non-GAAP operating loss. The factors that may impact our future stock-based compensation expense and capitalization and amortization of internal-use software are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and therefore we are unable to provide such guidance without unreasonable effort. Factors include our market capitalization and related volatility of our stock price and our inability to project the cost or scope of internally produced software and charges related to the proposed acquisition for the year.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. Castlight Health encourages investors and others to review the company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

CASTLIGHT HEALTH, INC.

RECONCILIATION OF GAAP TO NON-GAAP PRO FORMA REVENUE

(In millions)

(unaudited)



Annual Guidance


2017



GAAP revenue guidance

$132-136

Add back:


Deferred revenue fair value adjustment (1)

1.9

Jiff revenue Q1'17 (2)

3.7

Non-GAAP pro forma revenue guidance (3)

$138-142



 

(1) The close date of the Jiff acquisition occurred on April 3, 2017, subsequent to our fiscal quarter end. Accordingly, the deferred revenue fair value adjustment is a preliminary estimate and is subject to change upon the completion of purchase accounting. The impact on revenue related to purchase accounting as a result of these transactions limits the comparability of revenue between periods. While the deferred revenue written down in connection with Castlight's acquisition of Jiff will never be recognized as revenue under GAAP, we do not expect the acquisition to have an impact on future renewal rates of the contracts included within the deferred revenue write-down, nor do we expect revenue generated from new service and subscription contracts to be similarly impacted by purchase accounting adjustments. If this adjustment was not made, Castlight's future revenue growth rates could appear overstated.

(2) Non-GAAP pro forma revenue guidance combines the results of Jiff and Castlight as if Jiff was acquired at the beginning of our fiscal year 2017 and, therefore, includes Jiff's first quarter 2017 revenue as conformed to Castlight accounting policy.

(3) We believe presenting non-GAAP pro forma revenue guidance to include the impact of Jiff's first quarter revenue as if the transaction had been completed at the beginning of our fiscal year 2017, and excluding the impact of deferred revenue write-down, will aid in the comparability between periods and in assessing our overall operating performance. We have performed an initial review of Jiff's accounting policies, upon comprehensive review, we may identify other differences among the accounting policies of Castlight and Jiff that, when conformed, could have an impact on future revenue. Non-GAAP pro forma revenue has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP revenue. Other companies in our industry may calculate this measure differently, which may limit its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Appendix A: Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Deferred revenue fair value adjustment: In connection with the acquisition of Jiff, the deferred revenue balances from Jiff products were required to be written down due to purchase accounting in accordance with GAAP. While the deferred revenue written down in connection with the acquisitions will never be recognized as revenues under GAAP, we do not expect the acquisition of Jiff to have an impact on future renewal rates of the contracts included within the deferred revenue writedown, nor do we expect revenues generated from new service and subscription contracts to be similarly impacted by purchase accounting adjustments.

Jiff revenue Q1'17: An adjustment to Jiff's revenue to adhere to Castlight's accounting policies, in connection with the acquisition of Jiff.

Stock-based compensation: A non-cash expense arising from the grant of stock-based awards to employees.

Litigation settlement: Represents settlements of lawsuits related to Castlight's initial public offering and the acquisition of Jiff in the first quarter of 2016 and 2017, respectively.

Reduction in workforce: Expenses associated with the program Castlight undertook in the second quarter of 2016 to reduce the Company's workforce by fourteen percent.

Capitalization and amortization of internal-use software: Development costs incurred during the application development stage of our cloud-based service that we capitalize. Capitalized software development costs are included as part of property, plant and equipment and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the technology's estimated useful life.

Acquisition related costs: Transaction and integration costs associated with the Jiff acquisition. These costs include all incremental expenses incurred to effect a business combination. Acquisition costs include advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees. Integration costs include expenses directly related to integration of business and facility operations, information technology systems and infrastructure and other employee related costs.
