Forward-Looking Statements

This release includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The company’s actual results may differ from its expectations, estimates and projections and, consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. Words such as “expect,” “estimate,” “project,” “budget,” “forecast,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “believes,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, the company’s expectations with respect to future performance or the Transaction, including the expected timing of the closing of the Transaction; considerations taken into account by GTY’s Board of Directors in approving the Transaction; and expectations for GTY following the closing of the Transaction. These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside of the company’s control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (1) the impact of public health crises, epidemics and pandemics such as the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations, our customers and the economy, including the duration, spread and severity of such crises, and variants, vaccinations, treatments, testing, and recurrences; (2) the costs of acquisitions and the risk that the ongoing integration of the businesses acquired in our business combination and any subsequent acquisitions disrupts current plans and operations; (3) the ability to fully recognize the anticipated benefits of the business combination and any subsequent acquisitions, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to grow and manage growth profitably; (4) the ability to attract, retain, and motivate its key employees and, if they depart, to recruit, hire, and motivate replacements with comparable or better knowledge, skills and abilities; (5) our failure to generate sufficient cash flow from our business to make payments on our debt; (6) our ability to raise or borrow additional funds on acceptable terms; (7) changes in applicable laws or regulations and the adoption of new accounting standards, statements, and interpretations; (8) legal proceedings and investigations that could harm our business, including those relating to former special purpose acquisition companies; (9) the possibility that the company may be adversely affected by other economic, business or competitive factors, including inflation; (10) the possibility that the conditions to the closing of the Transaction are not satisfied, including the risk that required approvals from GTY’s shareholders for the Transaction or required regulatory approvals to consummate the Transaction are not obtained; (11) potential litigation relating to the Transaction; (12) uncertainties as to the timing of the consummation of the Transaction; (13) the ability of each party to consummate the Transaction; (14) possible disruption related to the Transaction to GTY’s current plans and operations, including through the loss of customers and employees; and (15) other risks and uncertainties included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We caution you that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive, and readers should not place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. We do not undertake or accept any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect any change in our expectations or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based, except as required by applicable securities laws.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, GTY has provided in this release certain financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP defined as “non-GAAP financial measures,” which include (i) non-GAAP revenues, (ii) non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, (iii) and non-GAAP loss from operations.

GTY’s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to the corresponding GAAP measures, in evaluating GTY’s ongoing operational performance and trends. However, it is important to note that particular items GTY excludes from, or includes in, its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the items excluded from, or included in, similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in the same industry. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to such GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.

Non-GAAP Revenues. Non-GAAP revenues are defined as GAAP revenues adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting resulting from its business combination which reduced its acquired contract liabilities to fair value. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP revenues is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments to revenues to allow for a direct comparison between periods.

Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin. Non-GAAP gross profit is defined as GAAP gross profit adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting resulting its business combination and share-based compensation. Non-GAAP gross margin is defined as non-GAAP gross profit divided by non-GAAP revenues. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP gross profit and margin is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments to allow for a direct comparison between periods.

Non-GAAP Loss From Operations. Non-GAAP loss from operations is defined as GAAP loss from operations adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting to revenues resulting from its business combination, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation, acquisition related costs, goodwill impairment expense, restructuring expenses and the change in fair value of contingent consideration. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP loss from operations is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of certain non-cash and acquisition related expenses to allow a direct comparison of loss from operations between periods.

Non-GAAP Net Loss. Non-GAAP net loss is defined as GAAP net loss adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting to revenues resulting from GTY’s business combination, the amortization of acquired intangible assets, share-based compensation, acquisition related costs, goodwill impairment expense, restructuring expenses, the change in fair value of contingent consideration, loss from repurchase/issuance of shares and the change in fair value of warrant liability. The company believes that presenting non-GAAP loss from operations is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of certain non-cash and acquisition related expenses to allow a direct comparison of loss from operations between periods.

Operating Metrics

We define the number of customers as the number of accounts with a unique account identifier for which we have an active contract in the period indicated. New customers have signed a new contract with a GTY entity in the period.

We define ARR as the annualized revenue run-rate of subscription, maintenance or transaction-based agreements from all customers at a point in time. For transaction based CityBase contracts we use the following calculation: For large projects (>$10K per month) with 12 months or more of history we use the trailing 12 months of history. For large projects with less than 12 months, we calculate an annualized value based on history available. For small projects (<$10K per month) we annualize the most recent month’s activity.

Average ARR per customer is calculated by dividing total ARR at the end of the period by the number of customers at the end of the period.
