The non-GAAP measures used in this presentation are reconciled to their comparable GAAP measures in our press release announcing
Q3 2020 results published today and filed as an exhibit to our 8-K filed with the SEC today, and the operational metrics used in this presentation are defined in the supplemental financial information datasheet available on ir.avid.com. Avid believes the non-GAAP measures and the operational metrics provided in this presentation provide helpful information to investors with respect to evaluating the Company's performance. However, these non-GAAP measures and operational metrics may vary from how other companies present such measures. Non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP.
The presentation also includes expectations for Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Free Cash Flow, which are forward- looking non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these forward-lookingnon-GAAP measures are not included in this presentation, due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections of some of the information excluded from the estimation of the non-GAAP results, together with some of the excluded information not being ascertainable or accessible at this time. As a result, the Company is unable to quantify certain amounts that would be required to be included in the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure without unreasonable efforts.
Certain information provided in this presentation includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
