Pro Forma1 Financial Results Comparison
RingCentral’s transition of direct phone sales to an agency model was completed in the second quarter of 2016 and reported revenues reflect the new business model. During the transition, the decision was made to exclude RingCentral’s carrier partners’ phone sales from the agency model, as the billing relationships to these customers are through the carriers. To provide the appropriate full year-over-year comparisons, pro forma adjustments to certain financial metrics for 2015 and first quarter of 2016 can be found in Table 6, which includes a reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP measures.

This press release contains “forward-looking statements”, including statements regarding our expectations regarding future financial results including our future revenues, our expectations regarding the traction of our growth drivers, our leadership position, and our planned investments. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on assumptions that may prove to be incorrect, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements are: our ability to grow at our expected rate of growth; our ability to add and retain larger and enterprise customers and enter new geographies and markets; our ability to continue to release, and gain customer acceptance of, new and improved versions of our services; our ability to compete successfully against existing and new competitors; our ability to enter into and maintain relationships with carriers and other resellers; our ability to manage our expenses and growth; and general market, political, economic, and business conditions, as well as those risks and uncertainties included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission; and in other filings we make with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.
All forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to RingCentral as of the date hereof, and we undertake no obligation to update these forward-looking statements, to review or confirm analysts’ expectations, or to provide interim reports or updates on the progress of the current financial quarter.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Our reported financial results include certain Non-GAAP financial measures, including Non-GAAP operating income (loss), Non-GAAP operating margin, and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) is defined as operating income (loss) excluding share-based compensation, acquisition related matters, and amortization of acquisition intangibles. Non-GAAP operating margin is defined as Non-GAAP operating income (loss) divided by total GAAP revenue. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) excluding share-based compensation, acquisition related matters, amortization of acquisition intangibles, tax benefit for release of valuation allowance, and intercompany remeasurement gains or losses.
We have included Non-GAAP operating income (loss), Non-GAAP operating margin, and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share in this press release because they are key measures used by us to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Non-GAAP operating income (loss), Non-GAAP operating margin, and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business.
Although Non-GAAP operating income (loss), Non-GAAP operating margin, and Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share are frequently used by investors in their evaluations of companies, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Because of these limitations, these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered alongside other financial performance measures.
Our reported results also include our total annualized exit monthly recurring subscriptions, RingCentral Office® annualized exit monthly recurring subscriptions, and net monthly subscriptions dollar retention. We define our total annualized exit monthly recurring subscriptions as our total monthly recurring subscriptions multiplied by 12. Our total monthly recurring subscriptions equal the monthly value of all customer subscriptions in effect at the end of a given month. We believe this metric is a leading indicator of our anticipated subscriptions revenue. We calculate our RingCentral Office® annualized exit monthly recurring subscriptions in the same manner as we calculate our total annualized exit monthly recurring subscriptions, except that only customer subscriptions from RingCentral Office® customers are included when determining monthly recurring subscriptions for the purposes of calculating this key business metric. We define Dollar Net Change as the quotient of (i) the difference of our Monthly Recurring Subscriptions at the end of a period minus our Monthly Recurring Subscriptions at the beginning of a period minus our Monthly Recurring Subscriptions at the end of the period from new customers we added during the period, (ii) all divided by the number of months in the period. We define our Average Monthly Recurring Subscriptions as the average of the Monthly Recurring Subscriptions at the beginning and end of the measurement period.
1 In 1Q16 RingCentral transitioned direct phone sales to an agency model, in which RingCentral receives a commission for phone sales instead of separately recognizing the full sale price and cost of the product. RingCentral is providing supplemental information on a pro forma basis to provide a clear comparison of the Company’s results with prior periods as-if the Company had transitioned phone sales to the new agency model on January 1, 2015. Carrier phone sales will remain under the direct phone sales model.
