(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 costs are primarily related to the Restructuring Plan that Dexcom announced on February 21, 2019.
(3) Represents costs associated with a settlement of litigation and proceedings related to a patent infringement lawsuit.
(4) Non-cash interest expense represents accretion of the debt discount associated with our senior convertible notes.
(5) Loss on extinguishment of debt is related to the repurchase and conversions of our Senior Convertible Notes due 2022.
(6) Loss from equity investments is related to our investment in Tandem Diabetes Care, Inc.
(7) 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. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019, we tax-effected GAAP-only items at a 0% tax rate because we recorded a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets.
(8) 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.
(9) Our 2023 senior convertible notes are dilutive on a GAAP basis 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.
(10) The sum of the non-GAAP net income per share components may not equal the totals due to rounding.

ABOUT NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The accompanying press release dated February 11, 2021 contains non-GAAP financial measures. Table E reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures in that press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). 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.

Dexcom reports 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.

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 exclude the following items from non-GAAP gross profit:

  • COVID-19 costs

We exclude the following items from non-GAAP operating income:

  • Amortization of intangible assets

  • Collaborative research and development fees

  • Business transition and related costs

  • COVID-19 costs

  • Litigation settlement costs

In addition to the items listed above, we exclude the following items from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share:

  • Non-cash interest expense on senior convertible notes

  • Loss on extinguishment of debt

  • Income and loss from equity investments

  • Adjustments related to taxes

We believe that presentation of financial results that exclude these items provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of our core operating results as well as comparison of operating results across reporting periods. 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.

The following are descriptions of the items we exclude from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share.

Amortization of intangible assets. When we acquire an entity, we are required by GAAP to record the fair values of the intangible assets of the entity on our balance sheet and amortize them over their useful lives. We exclude these non-cash amortization charges from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Collaborative research and development fees. Represents milestone and incentive payments under our collaborative research and development arrangement. We may elect to pay these fees by issuing shares of our common stock, and when we do so we exclude these non-cash fees from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Business transition and related costs. Represents 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. We exclude business transition and related costs from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are unrelated to our ongoing business operating results.

COVID-19 costs. 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. Cost incurred include items like incremental payroll costs, consulting support, IT infrastructure and facilities related costs. We exclude these costs from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are unrelated to our ongoing business operating results.

Litigation settlement costs. Represents costs associated with the settlement of litigation and proceedings related to a patent infringement lawsuit. We exclude significant one-time litigation settlement charges and related costs when evaluating our operating performance because we do not incur such charges on a predictable basis and exclusion of such charges enables more consistent evaluation of our operating performance.

Non-cash interest expense on senior convertible notes. Represents the accretion of the debt discount associated with our senior convertible notes. We exclude these non-cash interest expenses from our non-GAAP financial measures.

Loss on extinguishment of debt. Represents losses associated with repurchases and/or conversions of our senior convertible notes. We exclude these losses from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are unrelated to our ongoing business operating results.

Income and loss from equity investments. Income and loss from equity investments is related to our investment in Tandem Diabetes Care. We exclude income and loss from equity investments from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are unrelated to our ongoing business operating results.

Adjustments related to taxes. For periods with a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets, we reflect no income tax effects for our non-GAAP adjustments because we record a full valuation allowance on our deferred tax assets. We also exclude the impact of the Company’s valuation allowance release related to deferred tax assets.

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, and litigation settlement costs.
