1See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for important information about our use of constant currency and other non-GAAP measures.

2See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for important information about our use of non-GAAP measures and further information about our non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP operating income measures.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: a) non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP operating income, b) non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share ("EPS"), and c) constant currency.

Non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP operating income. The Company defines non-GAAP operating expenses as total operating expenses, excluding the IPR&D charge in connection with the MVI Health Inc. asset acquisition. Non-GAAP operating income is defined as operating income (loss), excluding the same IPR&D charge.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS. The Company defines non-GAAP net income as net income excluding a) the IPR&D charge in connection with the MVI Health Inc. asset acquisition in the third quarter of 2018, b) the one-time effect of the transition tax from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (the "Tax Reform Act") in the first quarter of 2018, and c) the effects of the excess tax benefits associated with share-based compensation arrangements, net of any related valuation allowance. The Company defines non-GAAP diluted EPS as GAAP diluted EPS, excluding the effects of the same items above.

Constant currency. The Company's constant currency revenue disclosures estimate the impact of changes in foreign currency rates on the translation of the Company's current period revenue as compared to the applicable comparable period in the prior year. This impact is derived by taking the current local currency revenue and translating it into U.S. dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates used to translate the local currency revenue for the applicable comparable period in the prior year, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the Company's results or business.

Full reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures is set forth in the tables below.

Our management believes the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this press release are useful to investors in assessing the operating performance of our business and provide meaningful comparisons to prior periods and thus a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Specifically, we consider the change in constant currency revenue as a useful metric as it provides an alternative framework for assessing how our underlying business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. We consider non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics as they provide an alternative framework for assessing how our underlying business performed. These metrics exclude the effects of the IPR&D charge in connection with the MVI Health Inc. asset acquisition, and, in the case of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS, the one-time effect of the transition tax from the Tax Reform Act, as well as the effects of excess tax benefits associated with share-based compensation arrangements, net of any related valuation allowance.

The non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release may be different from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to GAAP measures. We urge investors to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

Forward-Looking Statements
Except for historical information, certain statements in this press release are forward-looking in nature and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us. Our business and operations are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and, consequently, actual results may differ materially from those projected by any forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from those projected include, but are not limited to: failure to sustain or grow profitability or generate positive cash flows; failure to effectively introduce and market new products; delays in product introductions; significant competition; inability to further penetrate our current customer base, expand our user base and increase the frequency of use of our products by our customers; inability to achieve or maintain satisfactory pricing and margins; manufacturing difficulties; permanent write-downs or write-offs of our inventory; product defects or failures; unfavorable outcomes in clinical trials; inability to maintain our culture as we grow; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; potential adverse regulatory actions; and potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures or investments we may make. These risks and uncertainties, as well as others, are discussed in greater detail in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, which we expect to file with the SEC on or before March 2, 2020. There may be additional risks of which we are not presently aware or that we currently believe are immaterial which could have an adverse impact on our business. Any forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations, estimates and assumptions regarding future events and are applicable only as of the dates of such statements. We make no commitment to revise or update any forward-looking statements in order to reflect events or circumstances that may change.

2 On August 31, 2018, the Company acquired a controlling interest in MVI Health Inc. which was accounted for as an asset acquisition. In connection with the transaction, the Company recorded a $30.8 million IPR&D charge during year ended December 31, 2018, in the consolidated statements of operations related to the acquired technology under development from MVI Health Inc. Of the total IPR&D charge, $27.4 million was attributable to the net loss of Penumbra, Inc in the third quarter of 2018. There was no effect on the benefit from income taxes for the year ended December 31, 2018 related to the IPR&D charge.


3 On December 22, 2017, the Tax Reform Act was enacted into law. This new tax law, among other changes, reduces the Company's U.S. federal statutory corporate income tax rate from 34% to 21% effective January 1, 2018. During the first quarter of 2018, the Company recorded a provisional tax charge for the one-time transition tax on the undistributed earnings of its foreign subsidiaries. During the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, the Company completed its accounting for the tax effect of the transition tax under ASC 740 and adjusted the previously recorded provisional tax charge. The adjustment was deemed immaterial to the consolidated financial statements


4 In accordance with Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, all excess tax benefits related to share-based compensation is recognized as an income tax benefit, instead of in stockholders' equity.
