Non-GAAP Results
We present non-GAAP supplemental performance measures in this press release.  We have presented this financial information because we believe the exclusion of non-cash charges allows for a more relevant comparison of our results of operations to other companies used by industry analysts and investors to compare our performance against that of our peer group and they provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance.

We use non-GAAP financial measures to help us make strategic decisions, establish budgets and operational goals for managing our business, analyze our financial results, and evaluate our performance. We also believe that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our core business and results of operations over multiple periods with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the way that these measures are calculated. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as the sole measure of our performance and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial statements portion of this release.

In the second quarter of 2021, non-GAAP gross profit was $28.3 million, or 82% of revenue, non-GAAP operating expenses were $16.2 million, or 47% of revenue, non-GAAP income from operations was $12.0 million, or 35% of revenue and non-GAAP net income was $12.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share.

Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws.  These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words "intend," "expect," "estimate," "project," "potential," "future," "may," "will," "would," "will be," and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are predictions, projections and other statements about future events that are based on current expectations and assumptions and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. All statements, other than statements of present or historical fact included in this press release, such as its strategy, future operations, estimated financial position, estimated revenue growth, prospects and pipeline expectations, estimated market growth, estimated backlog, plans and objectives of management and plans to become a public company are forward-looking statements. Many factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release, including but not limited to, risks related to new accounting pronouncements or changes in accounting guidance; changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political, and legal conditions; the ability to implement business plans, forecasts, and other expectations, and identify and realize additional opportunities; risks related to the rollout of Achronix's business and the timing of expected business milestones; the effects of competition on Achronix's business; the effects of the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry on Achronix's business; risks related to Achronix's customer concentration; the risks to Achronix's business if internal processes and information technology systems are not properly maintained; risks associated with Achronix's operational dependence on independent contractors and third parties; risks associated with Achronix's reliance on certain suppliers for, among other things, silicon wafers; risks and uncertainties related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic; risks and uncertainties related to Achronix's international operations, including possible restrictions on cross-border investments which could harm Achronix's financial position; and risks associated with Achronix's ability to develop new products and adapt to new markets. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. There may be additional risks that Achronix does not presently know, or that Achronix currently believe are immaterial, that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements as predictions of future events, and Achronix assumes no obligation and does not intend to update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable law.

In addition to disclosing financial results calculated in accordance with U. S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the operating

results presented contain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation expense

and expenses related to the change in fair value of our redeemable preferred stock warrants.


Management believes it is useful to provide these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation to comparable GAAP financial measures

as we believe non-GAAP measures provide useful supplemental information for investors to evaluate our operating results in the same manner 

as used by industry research analysts, all of whom present non-GAAP projections in their published reports.  As such, non-GAAP measures

provided by Achronix facilitate a more direct comparison of its performance with the financial reports published by the industry analysts.  

The items reconciling GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures and additional comments and the usefulness of each item are 

set forth below: 


(1)

Stock-based compensation is excluded by management when evaluating operating activities and for strategic decision making, forecasting 


future results and evaluating current performance. Management believes that utilizing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude this 


non-cash item is useful in providing an alternate measure that excludes the variability caused by different methodologies and subjective 


assumptions used in the valuation of equity awards across different companies.


(2)

Redeemable preferred stock warrant is excluded from the internal analysis of Achronix's operations and management does not view this


non-cash expense as reflective of the business' current performance. Management believes that utilizing non-GAAP financial measures


that exclude this non-cash item is useful in providing an alternate measure that excludes the variability caused by such item.


Non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP; therefore, the information is not necessarily comparable to other

companies' financial information and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures 

calculated in accordance with GAAP.
