Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release contains references to Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP operating revenues, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP variable profit and non-GAAP variable profit margin of Dave, which are adjusted from results based on generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and exclude certain expenses, gains and losses.

The Company defines and calculates non-GAAP operating revenues as operating revenues, net excluding direct loan origination costs and ATM fees. The Company defines and calculates non-GAAP operating expenses as operating expenses excluding non-variable operating expenses. The Company defines non-variable operating expenses as all advertising and marketing operating expenses, compensation and benefits operating expenses, and certain operating expenses (legal, rent, technology/infrastructure, depreciation, amortization, charitable contributions, other operating expenses, upfront Member account activation costs and upfront Dave Banking expenses). The Company defines and calculates non-GAAP variable profit as non-GAAP operating revenues excluding non-GAAP operating expenses.
