“We executed well across the business in the first quarter. Renewals were very strong and included our two largest, non-governmental customers that were up for renewal in 2015. Both signed renewals with us that increased their investments in Castlight solutions,” said Giovanni Colella, president and chief executive officer of Castlight Health. “In addition to these renewals and upsells, we were pleased to continue adding new large employers as customers in the first quarter, including Viacom, McKesson, and the State of Mississippi.”

Q2 2015 Guidance: Revenue for the company’s second quarter is expected to be $17.6 million to $17.9 million, representing growth of 67% to 70% on a year-over-year basis. We expect to generate a non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $16.5 million to $17.5 million and a non-GAAP net loss per share of $0.18 to $0.19 based on 94 million weighted average basic and diluted shares outstanding.
Full Year 2015 Guidance: Revenue for the company’s full year 2015 is expected to be in the range of $74 million to $77 million, an increase of 62% to 69% year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating loss is expected to be in the range of $64 million to $67 million. Non-GAAP basic and diluted loss per share is expected to be in the range of $0.66 to $0.71 based on 95 to 97 million weighted average basic and diluted common shares outstanding.
For both the second quarter and the full year 2015, non-GAAP guidance excludes the effects of stock-based compensation expense and capitalization and amortization of internal-use software.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Castlight Health’s financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we also use and provide investors and others with non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance, including non-GAAP gross margin (loss), non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from GAAP financial measures in that they exclude stock-based compensation, warrant expense, capitalization and amortization of internal-use software and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable.
We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors and others, facilitate the analysis of the company’s core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods, and can help enhance overall understanding of the company’s historical financial performance.
We have provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, except that we have not reconciled our non-GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance for the second quarter of 2015 to comparable GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense and capitalization and amortization of internal-use software, which are reconciling items between GAAP and non-GAAP operating loss. The factors that may impact our future stock-based compensation expense and capitalization and amortization of internal-use software are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, and therefore we are unable to provide such guidance without unreasonable effort.
These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. Castlight Health encourages investors and others to review the company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
