Conference Call Information

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: Non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, non-GAAP weighted-average common shares outstanding and adjusted EBITDA.

We define non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share as excluding the impact of stock-based compensation. The weighted-average shares outstanding used to calculate non-GAAP net loss per share gives effect to the conversion of the preferred stock as of the beginning of each of the periods presented, if any.

We define adjusted EBITDA as net loss adjusted to exclude our income tax provision, other income (expense), including interest, depreciation and amortization, and stock-based compensation.

We believe that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Opower’s financial condition and results of operations. We use these non-GAAP measures for financial, operational and budgetary decision-making purposes, and to compare our performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information regarding past financial performance and future prospects, and permit us to analyze key financial metrics used to make operational decisions more thoroughly. 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 measures with other software companies, many of which disclose similar non-GAAP financial measures.

We do not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is their exclusion of significant income and expenses that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management on which income and expenses are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures that is included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
