from existing demand partners, including the Tremor Video DSP buyer
platform, which the company sold in August 2017; growth of OTT and

Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and beliefs
and are not guarantees of future performance or events. Investors are
cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.
Furthermore, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on
which they are made, and, except as required by law, Telaria disclaims
any obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect
future events or circumstances.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures: To supplement its consolidated
financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance
with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Telaria
reports Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We
define Adjusted EBITDA as net loss plus (minus): interest expense and
other income (expense), net, provision for income taxes, depreciation
and amortization expense, non-cash stock-based compensation expense,
non-cash stock-based long-term incentive compensation, executive
severance and retention costs, acquisition related costs, litigation
costs associated with class action securities litigation, mark-to-market
expense, impairment charges, other professional fees, and other
adjustments. We use Adjusted EBITDA for financial and operational
decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons.
We believe that the use of Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information
about our operating results, enhances the overall understanding of our
past financial performance and future prospects, and allows for greater
transparency with respect to a key metric that is used by management in
its financial and operational decision making. Non-GAAP financial
measures should be considered in addition to results and guidance
prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a
substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. With respect to our
expectations under "Guidance" above, reconciliation Adjusted EBITDA
guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available
without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high
variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the costs and
charges excluded from this non-GAAP measure, in particular, the measures
and effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to equity
compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable
fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of these
costs and charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable,
impact on our future GAAP financial results.
