Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial tables included in this press release.
Business Highlights:Leading life sciences companies Novo Nordisk and Biogen, among others, subscribed to Revenue Cloud as part of our SaaS transition program, which will enable each customer to migrate from an on-premise system to a modern SaaS solution. Seagate, a global leader in data storage solutions, expanded their usage of Revenue Cloud with a subscription to our Channel Data Management application. Our cloud optimization initiative, which centers on improving delivery and development by powering Revenue Cloud with AWS’s infrastructure, progressed this quarter with the transition of Edwards Life Sciences, Shionogi, Ipsen, and Allegro Microsystems, among others. Integra Life Sciences recently added an acquired business unit to Revenue Cloud and in their next phase they will roll out our cloud platform to their international business units.
As of November 6, 2018, we are providing guidance for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and the full fiscal year ending September 30, 2019.
Model N adopted ASC 606 beginning with its fiscal year 2019 using the modified retrospective method. The adoption of this accounting standard will be a headwind to our fiscal year 2019 financial results. The cumulative effect adjustment on total revenues is expected to be approximately $7.1 million with $3.2 million related to our Subscription revenues and $3.9 million related to our Professional Services revenues. The adoption will also impact our sales commissions accounting. We will capitalize sales commissions in fiscal year 2019. We expect this will lower our fiscal year expense by approximately $1.0 million. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be negatively impacted by approximately $2.2 million, which represents the impact of the adoption on our Subscription revenues less the positive impact we expect to realize with the capitalization of our sales commissions expense.
(1) The subscription cumulative effect adjustment for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 is expected to be approximately $1.1 million, and the adjustment for the full year fiscal 2019 is expected to be approximately $3.2 million. (2) The Company does not expect any cumulative effect adjustment to Professional Services for the first quarter of fiscal 2019. The adjustment for the full year fiscal 2019 is expected to be approximately $3.9 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.
Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.
Our reported results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net (loss) income per share, and adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP gross profit excludes stock-based compensation expense, acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment and valuation allowance resulting from Revitas acquisition as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business and, in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict and therefore we have not provided a reconciliation of forecasted Non-GAAP results with GAAP. In addition, stock-based compensation expense varies from period to period and company to company due to such things as differing valuation methodologies and changes in stock price. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss, adjusted depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition & integration related expenses, deferred revenue adjustment, interest (income) expense, net, and other (income) expenses, net, and provision (benefit) for income taxes. Reconciliation tables are provided in this press release.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Model N uses non-GAAP measures of adjusted EBITDA, gross profit, loss from operations, net loss, weighted average shares outstanding and net loss per share, which are adjusted to exclude certain legal expenses, Channel Insight and Revitas acquisition related costs, deferred revenue adjustment and valuation allowance resulting from Revitas acquisition, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets and includes dilutive shares where applicable. We believe these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Model N’s underlying operating results and trends and our marketplace performance. The non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance that are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these non-GAAP results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for operating loss, net loss or basic and diluted net loss per share prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and are subject to limitations.
While a large component of our expenses incurred in certain periods, we believe investors may want to exclude the effects of these items in order to compare our financial performance with that of other companies and between time periods:
(a) Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash item. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies. In the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, the Company issued Mr. Rinat 572,601 common shares, with fair value approximately $10.5 million, in connection with his transition agreement when he resigned as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Board. Mr. Rinat’s 375,234 performance-based restricted stock units were cancelled and the previously recorded expense of approximately $2.0 million was reversed into general and administrative expenses.
(b) Amortization of intangible assets resulted principally from acquisitions. Intangible asset amortization is a non-cash item. As such, we believe exclusion of these expenses provides for a better comparison of our operation results to prior periods and to our peer companies.
(c) In January 2017, we acquired Revitas, as part of the acquisition we incurred certain non-recurring integration costs. We believe that exclusion of these acquisition related adjustments and costs provides for a better comparison of our operation results to prior periods and to our peer companies.
(d) Represents deferred revenue adjustment resulting from purchase price accounting that is related to the Revitas acquisition and is a non-cash item. As such, we believe this adjustment provides for a better comparison of our operation results to prior periods and to our peer companies.
(e) In the third quarter of fiscal 2018, we recorded approximately $3.1 million of expense in connection with the repayment of our first term loan, of which approximately $1.6 million is non-cash unamortized discounts and deferred financing costs and $1.5 million in prepayment penalty. The charges were recorded as interest expense.
