These forward-looking statements reflect Carvana’s current expectations and projections with respect to, among other things, its financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance, and business. These statements may be preceded by, followed by or include the words "aim," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "forecast," "intend," "likely," "outlook," "plan," "potential," "project," "projection," "seek," "can," "could," "may," "should," "would," "will," the negatives thereof and other words and terms of similar meaning. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. Among these factors are risks related to the “Risk Factors” identified in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for 2022 and our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. There is no assurance that any forward-looking statements will materialize. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which reflect expectations only as of this date. Carvana does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments, or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As appropriate, Carvana supplements its results of operations determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) with - and discusses forward looking guidance with - certain non-GAAP financial measurements that are used by management, and which Carvana believes are useful to investors, as supplemental operational measurements to evaluate our financial performance. These measurements should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for reported GAAP results because they may include or exclude certain items as compared to similar GAAP-based measurements, and such measurements may not be comparable to similarly-titled measurements reported by other companies. Rather, these measurements should be considered as an additional way of viewing aspects of Carvana operations that provide a more complete understanding of its business. Carvana strongly encourages investors to review its consolidated financial statements included in publicly filed reports in their entirety and not rely solely on any one, single financial measurement or communication.

Carvana refers to the following non-GAAP measures in this press release: Adjusted EBITDA and Total gross profit per retail unit, non-GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss plus income tax expense, interest expense, other (income) expense, net, depreciation and amortization in cost of sales and SG&A, share-based compensation including the CEO Milestone Gift in cost of sales and SG&A, and restructuring costs, minus revenue related to Carvana’s Root warrants.

Gross profit, non-GAAP is defined as GAAP gross profit plus depreciation and amortization in cost of sales and share-based compensation including the CEO Milestone Gift in cost of sales, minus revenue related to Carvana’s Root warrants. Total gross profit per retail unit, non-GAAP is Gross profit, non-GAAP divided by retail vehicle unit sales.

Carvana believes that these metrics are useful measures to it and to its investors because they exclude certain financial, capital structure, and non-cash items that it does not believe directly reflects its core operations and may not be indicative of Carvana recurring operations, in part because they may vary widely across time and within its industry independent of the performance of its core operations. Carvana believes that excluding these items enables it to more effectively evaluate its performance period-over-period and relative to its competitors.

1 order to clearly demonstrate Carvana’s progress and highlight the most meaningful drivers within its business, Carvana continues to use forecasted Non-GAAP financial measures (forecasted Non-GAAP total gross profit per unit and Adjusted EBITDA) as it looks toward Q2 2023 and beyond. Carvana has not provided a quantitative reconciliation of forecasted GAAP measures to forecasted Non-GAAP measures within this communication because it is unable, without making unreasonable efforts, to calculate one-time or restructuring expenses. These items could materially affect the computation of forward-looking GAAP financial metrics.
