Non-GAAP Financial Measurement
Adjusted net loss attributable to common shareholders
The Company has started reporting adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders. We believe the omission of non-cash income or expense based on fluctuations in the Company’s stock price, significantly outside of its control, is more reflective of the key factors that affect our operating performance. Since the equity-linked instruments were issued early in our existence, and there being no further performance requirements associated with earning the awards, we believe that omitting these fluctuations provide a useful supplemental measure in evaluating the performance of our operations and provides better transparency into our results of operations. Our management does not evaluate the Company’s performance, either financial or operational, inclusive of fluctuations in the intrinsic value of the awards issued prior becoming a public company.
The following is a reconciliation of adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders to net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders in accordance with GAAP:
