AtriCure Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results
"Amidst tremendous uncertainty in this challenging environment, our team at AtriCure has shown both resiliency and leadership without missing a beat. We are continuing to support our clinician partners in creative and evolving ways while maintaining our patient-first culture," said Michael Carrel, President and Chief Executive Officer of AtriCure. "We are pleased by our second quarter results, which as expected, experienced a trough in April, then a rapid return in May, followed by steady volumes through June. In addition, we achieved significant milestones on our strategic initiatives with the release of the CONVERGE clinical trial data in May as well as further progress on aMAZE, continued success with Cryo Nerve Block, and ongoing training and education programs."
Mr. Carrel continued, "While we are encouraged by the improvement in our business throughout the second quarter, we have begun to experience more regional variability and procedure slowdowns in July in response to the recent resurgence of COVID-19 cases and related restrictions. Despite the continued uncertainty, as we look forward, we are extremely confident about our future. We were able to strengthen our balance sheet this quarter, allowing us to continue to invest in our people as well as our pillars to ensure that AtriCure is well positioned for durable growth over the next several years with a robust pipeline of clinical and product innovation."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement AtriCure's condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, AtriCure uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release as supplemental financial metrics.
Revenue reported on a constant currency basis is a non-GAAP measure and is calculated by applying previous period foreign currency exchange rates, which are determined by the average daily Euro to Dollar exchange rate, to each of the comparable periods. Management analyzes revenue on a constant currency basis to better measure the comparability of results between periods. Because changes in foreign currency exchange rates have a non-operating impact on revenue, the Company believes that evaluating growth in revenue on a constant currency basis provides an additional and meaningful assessment of revenue to both management and the Company's investors.
Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as Net loss before other income/expense (including interest), income tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense, share-based compensation expense, acquisition costs, and change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities. Management believes in order to properly understand the short-term and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of these excluded items in addition to GAAP measures. The excluded items vary in frequency and/or impact on our continuing results of operations and management believes that the excluded items are typically not reflective of our ongoing core business operations and financial condition. Further, management uses adjusted EBITDA for both strategic and annual operating planning, and previously used adjusted EBITDA as a performance metric in the annual incentive plan. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA reported in this release to the most comparable GAAP measure for the respective periods can be found in the table captioned "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjusted (Loss) Income (Adjusted EBITDA)" later in this release.
Adjusted loss per share is a non-GAAP measure which calculates the net loss per share before non-cash adjustments to expenses related to the adjustment in value of contingent consideration liabilities. Management believes this metric provides a better measure of comparability of results between periods, as such adjustments can be significant and vary in value and are not reflective of our core business. A reconciliation of adjusted loss per share reported in this release to the most comparable GAAP measure for the respective periods can be found in the table captioned "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Adjusted Loss Per Share" later in this release.
The non-GAAP financial measures used by AtriCure may not be the same or calculated the same as those used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for AtriCure's financial results prepared and reported in accordance with GAAP.
