Restructuring Program

Today, the Company is announcing a restructuring program to align its operations with its evolving business needs. This is also due, in part, to the recent unexpected churn of a large customer. Under this program, the Company intends to reduce operating expenses by 10 to 15 percent. The actions associated with this program are expected to be largely completed by September 30, 2018. The Company expects to take a restructuring charge in the third quarter of 2018, which will be excluded from its full year 2018 non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share calculation.

Business Outlook

The Company is reiterating its previously-issued 2018 outlook. For the full year 2018, the Company expects:

GAAP revenue in the range of $150 million to $155 million

Non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $15 million to $20 million

Non-GAAP net loss per share of approximately $0.11 to $0.15 based on approximately 137 million to 138 million shares

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Castlight Health's financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also use and provide investors and others with non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance, including non-GAAP gross profit and margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP other income, net, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. Non-GAAP gross profit and margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP other income, net and non-GAAP net loss exclude stock-based compensation, litigation settlement,  amortization of intangibles, amortization of internal-use software, lease exit and related charges, changes in fair value of contingent consideration liability, restructuring charges and charges related to the acquisition of Jiff and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors and others, facilitate the analysis of the company's core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods, and can help enhance overall understanding of the company's historical financial performance.

We have provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, except that we have not reconciled our non-GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance for the full year 2018 to comparable GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense, and capitalization and amortization of internal-use software, which are reconciling items between GAAP and non-GAAP operating loss. The factors that may impact our future stock-based compensation expense, and capitalization and amortization of internal-use software are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and therefore we are unable to provide such guidance without unreasonable effort. Factors include our market capitalization and related volatility of our stock price and our inability to project the cost or scope of internally produced software.

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. Castlight Health encourages investors and others to review the company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
