About Align Technology, Inc.
Align Technology designs, manufactures and markets Invisalign, a proprietary method for treating malocclusion, or the misalignment of teeth. Invisalign corrects malocclusion using a series of clear, nearly invisible, removable appliances that gently move teeth to a desired final position. Because it does not rely on the use of metal or ceramic brackets and wires, Invisalign significantly reduces the aesthetic and other limitations associated with braces. Invisalign is appropriate for treating adults and older teens. Align Technology was founded in April 1997 and received FDA clearance to market Invisalign in 1998.

NON-GAAP CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF OPERATIONS (unaudited) Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we use non-GAAP measures of gross profit, profit (loss) from operations, net profit (loss) and certain expenses (including sales and marketing, general and administrative and research and development), which exclude stock-based compensation to allow for a better comparison of results in the current period to those in prior periods that did not include FAS 123(R) stock-based compensation. We believe the non-GAAP measures that exclude stock-based compensation enhance the comparability of results against prior periods. In addition, we use these non-GAAP financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when publicly providing our business outlook and as a means to evaluate period-to- period comparisons. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
