CFO Transition:

The Company is also announcing that Chief Financial Officer Bill Sorenson plans to retire from the Company in 2023 and that it will commence a search for his successor. Mr. Sorenson will continue in his capacity throughout the search process and then will serve as an advisor to the company until his departure in August 2023 ensuring a smooth transition and onboarding of a new chief financial officer.

"Bill has been an incredible partner, leader, and team builder," said Yancey Spruill. "His financial acumen and experience have been critical over the past three years as we have turned the company around while dealing with a global pandemic, improved our financial profile through raising over $2.5 billion in capital and positioned the company to scale and achieve our first billion of revenue in 2024."

A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, expenses that may be incurred in the future. For example, stock-based compensation expense-related charges are impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions, the future fair market value of our common stock, and our future hiring and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to constant change. Accordingly, a reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort and we are unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, although it is important to note that these factors could be material to our results computed in accordance with GAAP.
