Non-GAAP financial information

Our previously provided guidance for fiscal year 2023 includes certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per diluted share, to supplement our financial information presented on a GAAP basis. For definitions of these non-GAAP measures, as well as reconciliations of the applicable non-GAAP financial measures to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measures, see our press release issued on December 6, 2022. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from GAAP; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare current results with results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies.
