Notes to the First Quarter 2017 Financial Results and Operating Metrics and 2017 Business Outlook

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and restructuring.

Adjusted EBITDA minus capital expenditures is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as adjusted EBITDA less purchases of property, plant, and equipment and capitalization of software development costs. This measure was referred to as "free cash flow" prior to the fourth quarter of 2016.

Consumer segment includes net revenues from stationery and greeting cards, photo books, calendars and photo-based merchandise, photo prints, and the related shipping revenues and rental revenue. Consumer also includes net revenues from advertising and sponsorship programs.

Shutterfly Business Solutions (SBS) includes net revenues primarily from variable, four-color direct marketing collateral manufactured and fulfilled for business customers.

Average Order Value (AOV) is defined as total net revenues (excluding SBS) divided by total orders.

The foregoing financial guidance replaces any of the Company’s previously issued financial guidance which should no longer be relied upon.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures. Tables are provided at the end of this press release that reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures that the Company uses to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA minus capital expenditures. The method the Company uses to produce non-GAAP financial measures is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from methods used by other companies.

To supplement the Company’s consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information about the Company’s core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past financial performance and its prospects for the future. These adjustments to the Company’s GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company’s underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company’s financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to gross margins, operating income (loss), or net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP. For more information, please see Shutterfly’s SEC Filings, including the most recent Form 10-K and Form 10-Q, which are available on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Web site at www.sec.gov.
