Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 
The primary purpose of using non-GAAP financial measures is to provide supplemental information that the Company believes may prove useful to investors and to enable investors to evaluate the Company’s results in the same way as management. The Company also presents the non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they assist investors in comparing the Company’s performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis, as well as comparing the Company’s results against the results of other companies, by excluding items that the Company does not believe are indicative of its core operating performance. Specifically, the Company uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance; to prepare the annual operating budget; to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of the Company’s business; to evaluate the effectiveness of the Company’s business strategies; to provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance; to facilitate a comparison of the Company’s results with those of other companies, many of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results; and in communications with the Company’s board of directors concerning financial performance. Investors should be aware however, that not all companies define these non-GAAP measures consistently. The Company discloses the following non-GAAP financial measures:
 
Non-GAAP Gross Revenue. For the calculation of Non-GAAP gross revenue, the Company excludes selling discounts and allowances when evaluating the gross amount of its revenue. Gross revenue is an important metric because this is how the Company believes investors and competitors compare financial results of beverage companies since with additional scale distributors and retailers will have less ability to force discounts and allowances on smaller companies in the market, which will help identify the full value to an investor, competitor or potential acquirer.
 
EBITDA is net loss adjusted to exclude interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expense.
  
Adjusted EBITDA. For the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, the Company also excludes the following items for the periods presented:
 
Stock-Based Compensation Expense: The Company’s compensation strategy includes the use of stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees, directors and consultants. This strategy is principally aimed at aligning the employee interests with those of the Company’s stockholders and to achieve long-term employee retention, rather than to motivate or reward operational performance for any particular period. As a result, stock-based compensation expense varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period.
 
Gain from the Sale of Long-lived Assets: Gains from the sale of land, buildings and other long-lived assets are excluded since they do not relate core business activities.
 
 
 
 
Other Debt Financing Expenses: Other debt financing expenses include collateral monitoring, unused line fees and other expenses related to the Company’s credit agreements. Since these amounts related to the Company’s debt financing structure, they are excluded since they do not relate to core business activities.
 
Gain on Change in Fair Value of Embedded Derivatives: The Company’s former Siena Revolver credit facility included features that were determined to be embedded derivatives requiring bifurcation and accounting as separate financial instruments. The Company has excluded gains and losses related to the changes in fair value of embedded derivatives given the nature of the fair value requirements. The Company cannot manage these amounts as part of its business operations nor are the gains and losses part of its core business activities, so they have been excluded.
