DYCOM INDUSTRIES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TO COMPARABLE GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (CONTINUED)

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). In the Company's quarterly results releases, trend schedules, conference calls, slide presentations, and webcasts, it may use or discuss Non-GAAP financial measures, as defined by Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company believes that the presentation of certain Non-GAAP financial measures in these materials provides information that is useful to investors because it allows for a more direct comparison of the Company's performance for the period reported with the Company's performance in prior periods. The Company cautions that Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company's reported GAAP results. Management defines the Non-GAAP financial measures used in this release as follows:

  • Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues - contract revenues from businesses that are included for the entire period in both the current and prior year periods. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues were also adjusted for the additional week as a result of the Company's 52/53 week fiscal calendar. The Non-GAAP adjustment is calculated independently for each comparative period as (i) total fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 contract revenues less, (ii) contract revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 from businesses acquired that were not owned for the full period in both the current and prior year period, (iii) divided by 14 weeks. Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenue growth is calculated as the percentage change in Non-GAAP Organic Contract Revenues over those of the comparable prior year period. Management believes organic growth is a helpful measure for comparing the Company's revenue performance with prior periods.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA - net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of fixed assets, stock-based compensation expense, loss on debt extinguishment, and certain non-recurring items. Management believes Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure for comparing the Company's operating performance with prior periods as well as with the performance of other companies with different capital structures or tax rates.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income - GAAP net income before loss on debt extinguishment, non-cash amortization of the debt discount, certain non-recurring items and any tax impact related to these items.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share - Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

Management excludes or adjusts each of the items identified below from Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income and Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted Earnings per Common Share:

  • Non-cash amortization of the debt discount - The Company's 0.75% convertible senior notes due September 2021 were allocated between debt and equity components. The difference between the principal amount and the carrying amount of the liability component of the convertible senior notes represents a debt discount. The debt discount is being amortized over the term of the convertible senior notes but does not result in periodic cash interest payments. The Company has excluded the non-cash amortization of the debt discount from its Non-GAAP financial measures because it believes it is useful to analyze the component of interest expense for the convertible senior notes that will be paid in cash. The exclusion of the non-cash amortization from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a consistent measure for assessing financial results.
  • Loss on debt extinguishment - The Company incurred a pre-tax charge of approximately $16.3 million for early extinguishment of debt in connection with the redemption of its 7.125% senior subordinated notes in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Management believes excluding the loss on debt extinguishment from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures assists investors' overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance. The Company believes this type of charge is not indicative of its core operating results. The exclusion of the loss on debt extinguishment from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a consistent measure for assessing the current and historical financial results.
  • Acquisition transaction related costs - The Company incurred costs of approximately $0.7 million in connection with an acquisition during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. The exclusion of the acquisition transaction related costs from the Company's Non-GAAP financial measures provides management with a consistent measure for assessing financial results.
  • Tax impact of adjusted results - The tax impact of the adjusted results for the three months and fiscal year ended July 29, 2017 and July 30, 2016 was calculated utilizing a Non-GAAP effective tax rate which approximates the Company's effective tax rate used for financial planning. The tax impact included in the Company's guidance for the quarter ending October 28, 2017 was calculated using an effective tax rate used for financial planning and forecasting future results.
