Non-GAAP Financial Information and Other Disclosures
Momenta uses a non-GAAP financial measure, non-GAAP operating expense, to provide operating expense guidance. Momenta believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors because it provides greater transparency regarding Momenta's operating performance and excludes non-cash stock compensation and is net of collaborative reimbursement revenues from Sandoz and Baxalta. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered an alternative to GAAP total operating expense and should not be considered a measure of Momenta's liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as substitutes for measures calculated in accordance with GAAP and should only be used to supplement an understanding of Momenta's operating results as reported under GAAP. Momenta has not provided a GAAP reconciliation for its forward-looking non-GAAP 2016 operating expense because Momenta cannot reliably predict without unreasonable efforts the timing or amount of the factors that substantially contribute to the projection of stock compensation expense, which is excluded from the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure. The Company does not believe that such a reconciliation would be meaningful to stockholders.
