Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures:
non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin,
non-GAAP sales and marketing, non-GAAP research and development,
non-GAAP general and administrative, non-GAAP operating expenses,
non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP
net income/(loss) per share, adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow.

We believe that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide
useful information to management and investors regarding certain
financial and business trends relating to Everbridge’s financial
condition and results of operations. We use these non-GAAP measures for
financial, operational and budgetary decision-making purposes, to
understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, and
to generate future operating plans. We believe that these non-GAAP
financial measures provide useful information regarding past financial
performance and future prospects, and permit us to more thoroughly
analyze key financial metrics used to make operational decisions. We
believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an
additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating
results and trends and in comparing our financial measures with other
software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial
measures to investors.

We do not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an
alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.
The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that
they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP
to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they
are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of
judgment by management about which expenses and income are excluded or
included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to
compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial
measures in connection with GAAP results. We urge investors to review
the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable
GAAP financial measures, which are included in this press release, and
not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
