Key Business Metrics and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We review the key business and financial metrics discussed below. We use these measures to evaluate our business, measure our performance, identify trends affecting our business, formulate business plans, and make strategic decisions.

Key Business Metrics

Active Customers

As of the last date of each reported period, we determine our number of Active Customers by counting the total number of individual customers who have ordered at least once directly from our apps or websites during the relevant period. A customer is anyone who has created an account on our apps or websites, identified by a unique email address. The change in Active Customers in a reported period captures both the inflow of new customers as well as the outflow of existing customers who have not made a purchase in the period. We view the number of Active Customers as a key indicator of our potential for growth in total net revenues, the reach of our network, the awareness of our brand, and the engagement of our customers.

Total Net Revenues per Active Customer

Total net revenues per Active Customer is the total net revenues generated in a period divided by the total number of Active Customers in that period. A key driver of growth is increasing the frequency and the level of spend of Active Customers who are shopping on our apps or websites. We therefore view total net revenues per Active Customer as a key indicator of engagement and retention of our customers and our success in increasing the share of wallet.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. However, management believes that certain non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with additional useful information in evaluating our performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different than similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures.

Constant Currency Revenue and Constant Currency Revenue Growth

The effect of currency exchange rates on our business is an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons. Our financial reporting currency is the U.S. dollar ("USD") and changes in foreign exchange rates can significantly affect our reported results and consolidated trends. For example, our business generates sales predominantly in Korean Won ("KRW"), which are favorably affected as the USD weakens relative to the KRW, and unfavorably affected as the USD strengthens relative to the KRW. We use constant currency revenue and constant currency revenue growth for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate comparisons between periods. We believe the presentation of our results on a constant currency basis in addition to U.S. GAAP results helps improve the ability to understand our performance because they exclude the effects of foreign currency volatility that are not indicative of our actual results of operations.

Constant currency information compares results between periods as if exchange rates had remained constant. We define constant currency revenue as total revenue excluding the effect of foreign exchange rate movements, and use it to determine the constant currency revenue growth on a comparative basis. Constant currency revenue is calculated by translating current period revenues using the prior period exchange rate. Constant currency revenue growth (as a percentage) is calculated by determining the increase in current period revenue over prior period revenue, where current period foreign currency revenue is translated using prior period exchange rates.

These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Results on a constant currency basis, as we present them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies and are not a measure of performance presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income/(loss) for a period before depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, income tax expense (benefit), other income (expense), net, equity-based compensation, impairments, and other items that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operations. Adjusted EBITDA margin is defined as adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total net revenues. We use adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin as key measures to evaluate and assess our performance and allocate internal resources. We believe adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are frequently used by investors and other interested parties in evaluating companies in the e-commerce industry for period-to-period comparisons as they remove the impact of certain items that are not representative of our core business, such as material non-cash items and certain variable charges. However, other companies may calculate adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin in a manner different from ours and therefore they may not be directly comparable to similar terms used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities or as measures of liquidity or alternatives to net income/(loss) as indicators of operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin have limitations as analytical tools, and you should consider them in addition to, and not in isolation or as substitutes, for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

Segment Gross Profit and Segment Gross Profit Margin

During the first quarter of 2022, with our change in reporting segments, we began providing segment gross profit and segment gross profit margin. Segment gross profit is defined as gross profit for a period attributable to each respective reportable segment. Segment gross profit margin is defined as segment gross profit as a percentage of segment net revenues. We believe segment gross profit and segment gross profit margin are frequently used by investors and other interested parties in evaluating companies in the e-commerce industry for period-to-period comparisons. However, other companies may calculate segment gross profit and segment gross profit margin in a manner different from ours and therefore they may not be directly comparable to similar terms used by other companies. Segment gross profit and segment gross profit margin are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities or as measures of liquidity or alternatives to consolidated gross profit as indicators of operating performance or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Segment gross profit and segment gross profit margin have limitations as analytical tools, and you should consider them in addition to, and not in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

Adjusted Gross Profit and Adjusted Gross Profit Growth

As a result of the FC Fire, we have presented adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross profit growth which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted gross profit is defined as gross profit for a period before the inventory losses recognized from the FC Fire. Adjusted gross profit growth is calculated by determining the change in gross profit over prior period gross profit adjusting gross profit for the inventory losses recognized from the FC Fire. We believe adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross profit growth are useful to investors and other interested parties in evaluating our results with other companies in the e-commerce industry for period-to-period comparisons as they remove the impact of certain items that are not representative of our core business. Adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross profit growth are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to gross profit, gross profit growth or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted gross profit and adjusted gross profit growth have limitations as analytical tools, and you should consider them in addition to, and not in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

Adjusted Net Loss and Adjusted Net Loss Growth

As a result of the FC Fire, we have presented adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss growth which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted net loss is defined as net loss for a period before the losses recognized from the FC Fire. Adjusted net loss growth is calculated by determining the change in net loss over prior period net loss adjusting for the losses recognized from the FC Fire. We believe adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss growth are useful to investors and other interested parties in evaluating our results with other companies in the e-commerce industry for period-to-period comparisons as they remove the impact of certain items that are not representative of our core business. Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss growth are not measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net loss, net loss growth or any other measures of performance derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss growth have limitations as analytical tools, and you should consider them in addition to, and not in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures

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 of expenses that may be incurred in the future, although it is important to note that these factors could be material to Coupang’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.

The following tables present the reconciliations from each U.S. GAAP measure to its corresponding non-GAAP measure for the periods noted:
