2021 Annual Guidance Update
For the year ending December 31, 2021, the Company is updating its financial guidance as follows:
Sales are estimated to be in the range of $625 million to $640 million, which represents an annual sales growth of 25 percent to 28 percent compared to 2020. The Company’s prior sales guidance for 2021 was estimated to be in the range of $600 million to $615 million.
Includes international sales of approximately $125 million to $130 million, which represents an annual sales growth of 50 percent to 56 percent compared to 2020. The Company’s prior international sales guidance for 2021 was estimated to be in the range of $105 million to $110 million.
Gross margin is estimated to be approximately 55 percent
Adjusted EBITDA(1) is estimated to be 14 percent to 15 percent of sales
Non-cash charges included in cost of goods sold and operating expenses are estimated to be approximately $80 million, which include:
Approximately $65 million in non-cash, stock-based compensation expense
Approximately $15 million of depreciation and amortization
EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as net income (loss) excluding income taxes, interest and other non-operating items and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA further adjusts for the change in fair value of common stock warrants and non-cash stock-based compensation expense. This definition of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from similar measures used by other companies, even when similar terms are used to identify such measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by the Company to evaluate operating performance, generate future operating plans and make strategic decisions for the allocation of capital. The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA to provide information that may assist investors in understanding its financial results. However, Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a substitute for net loss.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Certain non-GAAP financial measures are presented in this press release, including Adjusted EBITDA, to provide information that may assist investors in understanding the Company’s financial results and assessing its prospects for future performance. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are important indicators of our operating performance because they exclude items that are unrelated to, and may not be indicative of, our core operating results. These non-GAAP financial measures, as we calculate them, may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and may not be appropriate measures for comparing the performance of other companies relative to the Company. These non-GAAP financial results are not intended to represent, and should not be considered to be more meaningful measures than, or alternatives to, measures of operating performance as determined in accordance with GAAP. To the extent we utilize such non-GAAP financial measures in the future, we expect to calculate them using a consistent method from period to period. A reconciliation of each of the GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable non-GAAP financial measures has been provided under the heading "Reconciliation of GAAP versus Non-GAAP Financial Results" in the financial statement tables attached to this press release. Consistent with SEC regulations, we have not provided a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in reliance on the "unreasonable efforts" exception set forth in the applicable regulations, because there is substantial uncertainty associated with predicting any future adjustments that we may make to our GAAP financial measures in calculating our non-GAAP financial measures.
