Castlight Health announced today that Randy Womack, chief operating officer, will step down September 30, 2014 after nearly four years of service with the company. Mr. Womack’s responsibilities will be assumed by other members of Castlight’s management team after a seamless transition process is completed.
Additionally, Concur CEO Steve Singh has joined Castlight’s Board of Directors, effective immediately. Concurrently, directors Bob Kocher, M.D., partner at Venrock, and Christopher P. Michel, managing director at Nautilus Ventures, departed the Board. Dr. Kocher will remain as an advisor to the company, and Bryan Roberts, co-founder of Castlight and general partner at Venrock, remains Castlight’s Chairman of the Board. These changes follow the April addition of Ed Park, executive vice president and chief operating officer of athenahealth to the Board of Directors.
“We would like to thank Randy for his efforts to help make Castlight such a great company and achieve such strong momentum as a business. Randy has decided to leave the company with the success of his third IPO to pursue his passion for startups. We wish him every success in his future endeavors,” said Colella. “Moving forward, Castlight has an incredibly strong group of experienced, proven leaders. I look forward to working with them to continue to capture growth and realize innovation opportunities.”

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 and non-GAAP net loss per share. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from GAAP financial measures in that they exclude stock-based compensation, expense for a warrant issued to a third-party service provider 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 third quarter and full fiscal year of 2014 to comparable GAAP operating loss and net loss per share guidance because we do not provide guidance for stock-based compensation expense and warrant expense, which are reconciling items between GAAP and non-GAAP operating loss. The factors that may impact our future stock-based compensation expense and warrant expense 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.
