Cash equivalents consist of investments in money market funds with maturities of three months or less from the date of purchase. Marketable securities consist of commercial paper, government securities and corporate debt securities, and are classified as available-for-sale securities. The Company views these securities as available to support current operations and has classified all available-for-sale securities as current assets. Available-for-sale securities are carried at fair value with unrealized gains and losses, if any, included in stockholders’ equity. Unrealized gains and losses are charged against other income (expense), net, for declines in fair value below the cost of an individual investment that is deemed to be other than temporary. The Company has not identified any marketable securities as other-than-temporarily impaired for the periods presented. The cost of securities sold is based upon a specific identification method.Restricted cash. As of December 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company had an outstanding letter of credit collateralized by a money market account of zero and $— million, respectively, for certain duty related requirements.zero— millionAccounts receivable. Accounts receivable are stated at invoice value less estimated allowances for doubtful accounts. Allowances are recorded based on the Company’s assessment of various factors, such as: historical experience, credit quality of its customers, age of the accounts receivable balances, geographic related risks, economic conditions and other factors that may affect a customer’s ability to pay. The allowance for doubtful accounts as of September 30, 2022 and 2021 was $0.7 million and $0.7 million, respectively.0.70.7Inventory. Inventory consists of finished goods and component parts, which are purchased directly from contract manufacturers or from suppliers. Inventory is stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value on a first-in, first-out basis. The Company writes down its inventory for estimated obsolescence or excess inventory equal to the difference between the cost of inventory and estimated market value plus the estimated cost to sell. The Company’s assessment of market value is based upon assumptions around market conditions and estimated future demand for its products within a specified time horizon, generally 12 months, product life cycle status, product development plans and current sales levels. Adjustments to reduce inventory to net realizable value are recognized in cost of revenue.Point of purchase (POP) displays. The Company provides retailers with POP displays, generally free of charge, in order to facilitate the marketing of the Company’s products within retail stores. The POP displays contain a display that broadcasts video images taken by GoPro cameras along with product placement available for cameras and accessories. POP display costs are capitalized as long-term assets and charged to sales and marketing expense over the expected period of benefit, which generally ranges from 24 to 36 months. Cash outflows and amortization related to POP displays are classified as operating activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows.Amortization expense for POP displays was $2.8 million, $2.8 million and $4.2 million in 2022, 2021 and 2020, respectively.2.82.84.2
Property and equipment, net. Property and equipment are stated at cost and are depreciated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the assets, ranging from one to nine years. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the lease term or their expected useful life. Property and equipment pending installation, configuration or qualification are classified as construction in progress. Costs of maintenance and repairs that do not improve or extend the lives of the respective assets are expensed as incurred.
Depreciation expense was $9.8 million, $9.8 million and $14.5 million in 2022, 2021 and 2020, respectively. In 2020, the Company recorded accelerated depreciation charges in connection with its plans to vacate certain leased office facilities as disclosed in Note 11 Restructuring charges.

Fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the reporting date. The Company estimates and categorizes the fair value of its financial assets by applying the following hierarchy:
Level 1
Valuations based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to directly access.
Level 2
Valuations based on quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; valuations for interest-bearing securities based on non-daily quoted prices in active markets; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
Level 3
Valuations based on inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
A financial instrument’s level within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of any input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
Leases. The Company leases its office space and facilities under cancelable and non-cancelable operating leases. Operating leases are presented as operating lease right-of-use (ROU) assets, short-term operating lease liabilities and long-term operating lease liabilities on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets. ROU assets represent the Company’s right to control the use of an underlying asset for the lease term and lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease.
Operating lease ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at the lease commencement date based on the present value of future lease payments. The Company determines its incremental borrowing rate based on the approximate rate at which the Company would borrow, on a secured basis, to calculate the present value of future lease payments. Lease expenses are recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Certain leases include an option to renew with terms that can extend the lease term from one to five years. The exercise of a lease renewal option is at the Company’s sole discretion and is included in the lease term when the Company is reasonably certain it will exercise the option.
Prior to January 1, 2019, the Company recognized leases under Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 840, Leases, which had the following differences from the current lease standard, ASC 842, Leases:
Operating leases were previously not recorded on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets.
The Company calculated a liability for future costs to be incurred under a lease for its remaining term without economic benefit to the Company upon determination of a cease-use date. The fair value of the liability was determined based on remaining lease payments, estimated sublease income and the effects of any prepaid or deferred items recognized under the lease.
Goodwill and acquired intangible assets. Goodwill represents the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of the net assets acquired in a business combination. Acquired intangible assets other than goodwill are amortized over their useful lives unless the lives are determined to be indefinite. For intangible assets acquired in a business combination, the determination of the estimated fair values of the assets received involves significant judgments and estimates. These judgments can include, but are not limited to, the cash flows that an asset is expected to generate in the future, technology obsolescence, and the appropriated weighted-average cost of capital. Valuation approaches consistent with the market approach, income approach and/or cost approach are used to measure fair value.
Impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets. The Company performs an annual assessment of its goodwill during the fourth quarter of each calendar year or more frequently if indicators of potential impairment exist, such as an adverse change in business climate or a decline in the overall industry demand, that would indicate it is more likely than not that the fair value of its single reporting unit is less than its carrying value. There was no impairment of goodwill recorded for any periods presented. For the Company’s annual impairment testing in 2022, the Company did not identify any indicators of potential impairment of its single reporting unit. Other indefinite-lived intangible assets are assessed for impairment at least annually. If their carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value, the difference is recorded as an impairment.
Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment, intangible assets subject to amortization and right-of-use assets, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset group may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the carrying amount to the estimated future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset group. If it is determined that an asset group is not recoverable, an impairment charge is recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset group exceeds its fair value. The Company recorded a $12.5 million right-of-use asset impairment in 2021 primarily related to its headquarter campus as described further in Note 11 Restructuring charges. The Company used the following significant assumptions to determine the impairment charge: future sublease rental rates, future sublease market conditions and a discount rate based on the weighted-average cost of capital. The Company did not record any impairment charges in 2021 or 2019.
12.5Warranty. The Company records a liability for estimated product warranty costs at the time product revenue is recognized. The Company’s standard warranty obligation to its end-users generally provides a 12-month warranty coverage on all of its products except in the European Union where the Company provides a 24-month warranty. The Company also offers extended warranty programs for a fee. The Company’s estimate of costs to service its warranty obligations is based on its historical experience of repair and replacement of the associated products and expectations of future conditions. The warranty obligation is affected by product failure rates and the related use of materials, labor costs and freight incurred in correcting any product failure.1224
Convertible Senior Notes. In April 2017, the Company issued $175.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.50% Convertible Senior Notes due April 15, 2022 (2022 Notes). In November 2020, the Company issued $143.8 million aggregate principal amount of 1.25% Convertible Senior Notes due November 15, 2025 (2025 Notes). Concurrently with the issuance of the 2025 Notes, the Company used a portion of the net proceeds to repurchase part of the 2022 Notes. See Note 4 Financing Arrangements for additional details.
The Company accounts for its 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes in accordance with ASC 470-20, Debt with Conversion and Other Options. As the Company’s 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes have a net settlement feature and may be settled wholly or partially in cash upon conversion, the Company is required to separately account for the liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the instrument. The carrying amount of the liability component of the instrument is determined by estimating the fair value of a similar liability without the conversion option using income and market based approaches. The amount of the equity component is then calculated by deducting the fair value of the liability component from the principal amount of the instrument. The difference between the principal amount and the liability component represents a debt discount that is amortized to interest expense over the remaining term of the convertible senior notes using an effective interest rate method. The equity component is not remeasured as long as it continues to meet the conditions for equity classification. In accounting for the issuance costs related to the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes, the allocation of issuance costs incurred between the liability and equity components were based on their relative values.
The total consideration for the 2022 Notes partial repurchase was separated into liability and equity components by estimating the fair value of a similar liability without a conversion option and assigning the residual value to the equity component. The effective interest rate used to estimate the fair value of the liability component of the 2022 Notes partial repurchase is based on the income approach used to determine the effective interest rate of the 2025 Notes, adjusted for the remaining term of the 2022 Notes. The gain or loss on extinguishment of the debt was subsequently determined by comparing repurchase consideration allocated to the liability component to the sum of the carrying value of the liability component, net of the proportionate amounts of unamortized debt discount and remaining unamortized debt issuance costs.
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470- 20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (ASU 2020-06), which simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. This accounting standard update, which we adopted effective January 1, 2022, will have a significant impact on the ongoing accounting of the 2022 and 2025 Notes. Refer to section Recent Accounting Pronouncements for additional details on the adoption of this accounting standard update.
Shipping costs. Amounts billed to customers for shipping and handling are classified as revenue, and the Company’s related shipping and handling costs incurred are classified as cost of revenue.Sales taxes. Sales taxes collected from customers and remitted to respective governmental authorities are recorded as liabilities and are not included in revenue.Advertising costs. Advertising costs consist of costs associated with print, television and e-commerce media advertisements and are expensed as incurred. The Company incurs promotional expenses resulting from payments under event, resort and athlete sponsorship contracts. These sponsorship arrangements are considered to be executory contracts and, as such, the costs are expensed as performance under the contract is received. The costs associated with the preparation of sponsorship activities, including the supply of GoPro products, media team support, and activation fees are expensed as incurred. Prepayments made under sponsorship agreements are included in prepaid expenses or other long-term assets depending on the period to which the prepayment applies. Advertising costs were $35.8 million, $34.1 million and $67.3 million in 2022, 2021 and 2020, respectively.35.834.167.3Foreign currency. The U.S. dollar is the functional currency of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries. The Company remeasures monetary assets or liabilities denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar using exchange rates prevailing on the balance sheet date, and non-monetary assets and liabilities at historical rates. Foreign currency remeasurement and transaction gains and losses are included in other income (expense), net and have not been material for any periods presented.
Income taxes. The Company utilizes the asset and liability method for computing its income tax provision, under which deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the expected future consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates. Management makes estimates, assumptions and judgments to determine the Company’s provision for income taxes, deferred tax assets and liabilities, and any valuation allowance recorded against deferred tax assets. The Company assesses the likelihood that its deferred tax assets will be recovered from future taxable income in each tax jurisdiction and, to the extent the Company believes recovery is not likely, establishes a valuation allowance. In the period ended September 30, 2021, the Company assessed its deferred tax assets and based on the weight of available evidence, the Company concluded that it was more likely than not that its United States federal and state deferred tax assets would be realized. Therefore, in 2022 the Company released $1.7 million of valuation allowances, which resulted in a non-cash net benefit to earnings for the year ended December 31, 2021.
The Company recognizes the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized from such positions are then measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon settlement. Interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits are recognized within income tax expense.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their date. If any of management's assumptions prove incorrect or should unanticipated circumstances arise, the Company's actual results could materially differ from those anticipated by such forward-looking statements. The differences could be caused by a number of factors or combination of factors including, but not limited to, those factors identified and detailed in Risk Factors in Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.

GoPro, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

1. Summary of business and significant accounting policies
GoPro, Inc. and its subsidiaries (GoPro or the Company) make it easy for the world to capture and share itself in immersive and exciting ways, helping people get the most out of their photos and videos. The Company is committed to developing solutions that create an easy, seamless experience for consumers to capture, create, manage and share engaging personal content. To date, the Company’s cameras, mountable and wearable accessories, and subscription and service have generated substantially all of its revenue. The Company sells its products globally on its website, and through retailers and wholesale distributors. The Company’s global corporate headquarters are located in San Mateo, California.
Basis of presentation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for financial information set forth in the Accounting Standards Codification (ASC), as published by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and with the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Company’s fiscal year ends on December 31, and its fiscal quarters end on March 31, June 30 and September 30.
The Company’s operating results, financial position and cash flows for fiscal year 2021 were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As the global impact of the pandemic continued to evolve in 2021, the Company utilized its direct-to-consumer sales channel strategy to maximize its reach to customers. This action, along with a reduction in on-going operating expenses, helped accelerate the Company’s ability to achieve consistent profitability in 2021. The Company’s operating results for the first nine months of 2022 were negatively impacted by a stronger U.S. dollar as well as inflationary pressure on operating costs such as wages, and component price increases.
The condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which are normal and recurring in nature, that management believes are necessary for the fair statement of the Company's financial statements, but are not necessarily indicative of the results expected in future periods. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at December 31, 2021, has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date, but does not include all the disclosures required by GAAP. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K (Annual Report) for the year ended December 31, 2021.
In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt - Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470- 20) and Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (ASU 2020-06), which simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. This accounting standard update, which was adopted effective January 1, 2022, has a significant impact on the ongoing accounting of the 2022 and 2025 Convertible Senior Notes. Due to the adoption of this accounting standard update under the modified retrospective method, prior periods were not restated. Refer to the Recent Accounting Standards section below for additional details on the adoption of this accounting standard update. There have been no other material changes in the Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates from those disclosed in its Annual Report.
Principles of consolidation. These condensed consolidated financial statements include all the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of estimates. The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported and disclosed in the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Significant estimates and assumptions made by management include those related to revenue recognition and the allocation of the transaction price (including sales incentives, sales returns and implied post contract support), inventory valuation, product warranty liabilities, the valuation, impairment and useful lives of long-lived assets (property and equipment, operating lease right-of-use assets, intangible assets and goodwill), fair value of convertible senior notes, and income taxes. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on historical experience and on various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, including but not limited to the potential impacts arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the results of which form the basis for making judgments

GoPro, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The extent and continued impact of COVID-19 has been taken into account by management in making the significant assumptions and estimates related to the above; however, if the duration and spread of the outbreak, the impact on the Company’s customers, and the effect on the Company’s contract manufacturers, vendors and supply chains is different from the Company’s estimates and assumptions, then actual results could differ materially. Given the uncertainty with respect to COVID-19, the Company’s estimates and assumptions may evolve as conditions change. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations could be affected.
Comprehensive income (loss). For all periods presented, comprehensive income (loss) approximated net income (loss). Therefore, the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income (Loss) have been omitted.
Revenue recognition. The Company derives substantially all of its revenue from the sale of cameras, mounts, accessories, subscription and service, and implied post contract support to customers. The transaction price recognized as revenue represents the consideration the Company expects to be entitled to and is primarily comprised of product revenue, net of returns and variable consideration, which includes sales incentives provided to customers.
The Company’s camera sales contain multiple performance obligations that can include the following four separate obligations: a) a camera hardware component (which may be bundled with hardware accessories) and the embedded firmware essential to the functionality of the camera component delivered at the time of sale, b) a subscription and service, c) the implied right for the customer to receive post contract support after the initial sale (PCS), and d) the implicit right to the Company’s downloadable free apps and software solutions. The Company’s PCS includes the right to receive, on a when and if available basis, future unspecified firmware upgrades and features as well as bug fixes, and email, chat and telephone support.
The Company recognizes revenue from its sales arrangements when control of the promised goods or services are transferred to its customers, in an amount that reflects the amount of consideration expected to be received in exchange for the transferred goods or services. For the sale of hardware products, including related firmware and free software solutions, revenue is recognized when transfer of control occurs at a point in time, which generally is at the time the hardware product is shipped and collection is considered probable. For customers who purchase products directly from GoPro.com, the Company retains a portion of the risk of loss on these sales during transit, which are accounted for as fulfillment costs. For PCS, revenue is recognized ratably over 24 months, which represents the estimated period PCS is expected to be provided based on historical experience.
The Company recognizes subscription and service revenue ratably over the subscription term, with any payments received in advance of services rendered recorded as deferred revenue. The Company offers the GoPro subscription which offers a range of services, including unlimited cloud storage supporting source video and photo quality, camera replacement and damage protection, access to a high-quality live streaming service on GoPro.com as well as discounts on GoPro gear, mounts and accessories. The Company also offers the Quik subscription that provides access to a suite of simple single-clip and multi-clip editing tools.
For the Company’s camera sale arrangements with multiple performance obligations, revenue is allocated to each performance obligation based on its relative standalone selling price. Standalone selling prices are based on observable price at which the Company separately sells its products, subscriptions, and services. If a standalone selling price is not directly observable, then the Company estimates the standalone selling prices considering market conditions and entity-specific factors. For example, the standalone selling price for PCS is determined based on a cost-plus approach, which incorporates the level of support provided to customers, estimated costs to provide such support, and the amount of time and costs that are allocated to efforts to develop the undelivered elements.
The Company's standard terms and conditions of sale for non-web-based sales do not allow for product returns other than under warranty. However, the Company grants limited rights of return, primarily to certain large retailers. The Company reduces revenue and cost of sales for the estimated returns based on analyses of historical return trends by customer class and other factors. An estimated return liability along with a right to recover assets are recorded for future product returns. Return trends are influenced by product life cycles, new

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
product introductions, market acceptance of products, product sell-through, the type of customer, seasonality and other factors. Return rates may fluctuate over time, but are sufficiently predictable to allow the Company to estimate expected future product returns.
The Company provides sales commissions to internal and external sales representatives which are earned in the period in which revenue is recognized, and are recognized as expenses as incurred.
Deferred revenue as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, includes amounts related to the Company’s subscription and PCS. The Company’s short-term and long-term deferred revenue balances totaled $53.9 million and $48.5 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. Of the deferred revenue balance as of December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company recognized $9.0 million and $6.6 million of revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $37.9 million and $24.6 million of revenue during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Of the deferred revenue balance as of June 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recognized $18.4 million and $13.3 million of revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
Sales incentives. The Company offers sales incentives through various programs, including cooperative advertising, price protection, marketing development funds and other incentives. Sales incentives are considered to be variable consideration, which the Company estimates and records as a reduction to revenue at the date of sale. The Company estimates sales incentives based on historical experience, product sell-through and other factors.
Segment information. The Company operates as one operating segment as it only reports financial information on an aggregate and consolidated basis to its Chief Executive Officer, who is the Company’s chief operating decision maker.

Recent accounting standards
StandardDescriptionCompany’s date of adoption
Effect on the condensed consolidated financial statements or other significant matters
Standards that were adopted
Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40)
ASU No. 2020-06

This standard simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity. ASU 2020-06 (1) simplifies the accounting for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock by removing the existing guidance in ASC 470-20, Debt: Debt with Conversion and Other Options, that requires entities to account for beneficial conversion features and cash conversion features in equity, separately from the host convertible debt or preferred stock, (2) revises the scope exception from derivative accounting in ASC 815-40 for freestanding financial instruments and embedded features that are both indexed to the issuer’s own stock and classified in stockholders’ equity, by removing certain criteria required for equity classification, and (3) revises the guidance in ASC 260, Earnings Per Share, to require entities to calculate diluted earnings per share (EPS) for convertible instruments by using the if-converted method. Companies are allowed to adopt this standard via either a modified retrospective method of transition or a fully retrospective method of transition. Under the modified retrospective method, entities should apply the guidance to transactions outstanding as of the beginning of the fiscal year in which the amendments are adopted. Transactions that were settled (or expired) during prior reporting periods are unaffected. The cumulative effect of the change should be recognized as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings at the date of adoption.
January 1, 2022
The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 using the modified retrospective transition method. As a result, prior period numbers were not restated.

Upon adoption, the Company recorded a net decrease to opening additional paid-in-capital of $78.2 million, with the impact primarily related to the reclassification of Senior Convertible Notes conversion feature’s fair value from additional paid-in-capital to short-term and long-term debt. Additionally, the Company recorded a decrease to opening accumulated deficit of approximately $47.1 million, with the impact related to the reclassification of the previously amortized debt discount and deferred financing costs. After adoption, the Company saw a reduction in its reported interest expense. In addition, the Company recorded a reversal of U.S. deferred tax liabilities (net) of $7.3 million, resulting in an additional corresponding decrease to opening accumulated deficit. The Company adopted the use of the if-converted method for calculating diluted earnings per share for its Senior Convertible Notes, which 1) resulted in an increase in weighted-average diluted shares outstanding, and 2) allowed for the adding back of the after-tax impact of interest charges for the period to the numerator.
Although there are several other new accounting standards issued or proposed by the FASB, which the Company has adopted or will adopt, as applicable, the Company does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

The Company’s assets that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis within the fair value hierarchy are summarized as follows:

Government securities 41,909 41,909  24,399 24,399 
Total marketable securities$ $131,619 $131,619 $ $137,830 $137,830 
(1)    Included in cash and cash equivalents in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Cash balances were $128.8 million and $217.8 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively.
Cash equivalents are classified as Level 1 because the Company uses quoted market prices to determine their fair value. Marketable securities are classified as Level 2 because the Company uses alternative pricing sources and models utilizing market observable inputs to determine their fair value. The contractual maturities of available-for-sale marketable securities as of September 30, 2022 were all less than one year in duration. At September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had no financial assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis that were classified as Level 3, which are valued based on inputs supported by little or no market activity.
At September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the amortized cost of the Company’s cash equivalents and marketable securities approximated their fair value and there were no material realized or unrealized gains or losses, either individually or in the aggregate.
In April 2017, the Company issued $175.0 million principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (2022 Notes), which were repaid on April 15, 2022. In November 2020, the Company issued $143.8 million principal amount of Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (2025 Notes) (see Note 4 Financing arrangements). The estimated fair value of the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes is based on quoted market prices of the Company’s instruments in markets that are not active and are classified as Level 2 within the fair value hierarchy. The Company estimated the fair value of the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes by evaluating quoted market prices and calculating the upfront cash payment a market participant would require to assume these obligations. The calculated fair value of the 2022 Notes was $132.4 million as of December 31, 2021, while the calculated fair value of the 2025 Notes was $128.8 million and $189.0 million as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The calculated fair value is highly correlated to the Company’s stock price and as a result, significant changes to the Company’s stock price will have a significant impact on the calculated fair value of the 2025 Notes.
For certain other financial assets and liabilities, including accounts receivable, accounts payable and other current assets and liabilities, the carrying amounts approximate their fair value primarily due to the relatively short maturity of these balances.
The Company also measures certain non-financial assets at fair value on a nonrecurring basis, primarily goodwill, intangible assets and operating lease right-of-use assets, in connection with periodic evaluations for potential impairment.

In January 2021, the Company entered into a Credit Agreement (2021 Credit Agreement) which provides for a revolving credit facility (2021 Credit Facility) under which the Company may borrow up to an aggregate amount of $50.0 million. The 2021 Credit Facility will terminate and any outstanding borrowings become due and payable on the earlier of (i) January 2024 and (ii) unless the Company has cash in a specified deposit account in an amount equal to or greater than the amount required to repay the Company’s convertible notes due April 2022, 91 days prior to the maturity date of such convertible notes. Concurrently with the execution of the 2021 Credit Agreement in January 2021, the Company terminated its previous 2016 Credit Agreement, which would otherwise have matured in March 2021.
The amount that may be borrowed under the 2021 Credit Agreement may be based on a customary borrowing base calculation if the Company’s Asset Coverage Ratio is at any time less than 1.50. The Asset Coverage Ratio is defined as the ratio of (i) the sum of (a) the Company’s cash and cash equivalents in the United States plus specified percentages of other qualified debt investments (Qualified Cash) plus (b) specified percentages of the net book values of the Company’s accounts receivable and certain inventory to (ii) $50.0 million.
At the Company’s option, borrowed funds accrue interest at either (i) a floating rate per annum equal to the base rate plus a margin of from 0.50% to 1.00% depending on the Company’s Asset Coverage Ratio or (ii) a per annum rate equal to the rate at which dollar deposits are offered in the London interbank market plus a margin of from 1.50% to 2.00% depending on the Company’s Asset Coverage Ratio. The Company is required to pay a commitment fee on the unused portion of the 2021 Credit Facility of 0.375% to 0.50% per annum, based on the

level of utilization of the 2021 Credit Facility. Amounts owed under the 2021 Credit Agreement are guaranteed by certain of the Company’s United States subsidiaries and secured by a first priority security interest in substantially all of the assets of the Company and certain of its subsidiaries (other than intellectual property, which is subject to a negative pledge restricting grants of security interests to third parties).
The 2021 Credit Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, and affirmative and negative covenants. The negative covenants include restrictions on the incurrence of liens and indebtedness, certain investments, dividends, stock repurchases and other matters, all subject to certain exceptions. In addition, the Company is required to maintain Liquidity (the sum of unused availability under the credit facility and the Company’s Qualified Cash) of at least $55.0 million (of which at least $40.0 million shall be attributable to Qualified Cash), or, if the borrowing base is then in effect, minimum unused availability under the credit facility of at least $10.0 million. The 2021 Credit Agreement also includes customary events of default that include, among other things, non-payment of principal, interest or fees, inaccuracy of representations and warranties, violation of certain covenants, cross default to certain other indebtedness, bankruptcy and insolvency events, material judgments and change of control. Upon an event of default, the lender may, subject to customary cure rights, require the immediate payment of all amounts outstanding.
At September 30, 2022, the Company was in compliance with all financial covenants contained in the 2021 Credit Agreement. The Company has made no borrowings from the 2021 Credit Facility to date, however, there is an outstanding letter of credit of $5.2 million for certain duty related requirements. This was not collateralized by any cash on hand.
2022 Convertible Notes
In April 2017, the Company issued $175.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.50% Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 (2022 Notes), which were repaid in full on April 15, 2022. The 2022 Notes were senior, unsecured obligations of the Company with a maturity date of April 15, 2022. The 2022 Notes could be converted into cash, shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, or a combination thereof, at the Company’s election, at an initial conversion rate of 94.0071 shares of Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the 2022 Notes, which was equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $10.64 per share of common stock, subject to adjustment. The Company historically paid interest on the 2022 Notes semi-annually in arrears on April 15 and October 15 of each year.

The indenture did not allow for early redemption of the 2022 Notes by the Company, and no sinking fund was provided for the 2022 Notes. The indenture included customary terms and covenants, including certain events of default after which the 2022 Notes may be due and payable immediately.
Holders had the option to convert the 2022 Notes in multiples of $1,000 principal amount at any time prior to January 15, 2022, but only in the following circumstances:
during any calendar quarter beginning after the calendar quarter ending on September 30, 2017, if the last reported sale price of Class A common stock for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the last 30 consecutive trading days of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter was greater than or equal to 130% of the conversion price of the 2022 Notes on each applicable trading day;
during the five-business day period following any five consecutive trading day period in which the trading price for the 2022 Notes was less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of Class A common stock and the conversion rate for the 2022 Notes on each such trading day; or
upon the occurrence of specified corporate events.
During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the preceding conditions allowing holders of the 2022 Notes to early convert were not met.
At any time on or after January 15, 2022 until the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date of the 2022 Notes on April 15, 2022, a holder could have converted its 2022 Notes, in multiples of $1,000 principal amount. Holders of the 2022 Notes who converted their 2022 Notes in connection with a make-whole fundamental change (as defined in the indenture) were, under certain circumstances, entitled to an increase in the conversion rate. In addition, in the event of a fundamental change prior to the maturity date,

holders would, subject to certain conditions, have the right, at their option, to require the Company to repurchase for cash all or part of the 2022 Notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2022 Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the repurchase date. These conditions allowing holders of the 2022 Notes to convert were not met by the maturity date of April 15, 2022.
Concurrently with the November 2020 issuance of the 2025 Notes, the Company used $56.2 million of the net cash proceeds from the 2025 Notes to repurchase $50.0 million principal amount of the 2022 Notes through an individual, privately negotiated transaction. The $56.2 million net cash proceeds were allocated between long-term debt (liability component) of $50.6 million and additional paid-in capital (equity component) of $5.4 million on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets, and the remaining $0.2 million was related to the payment of interest. The fair value of the liability component was measured using rates determined for similar debt instruments without a conversion feature. The Company’s effective interest rate of 2.4% was based on the trading details of the 2022 Notes immediately prior to the repurchase date to determine the volatility of the 2022 Notes, and their remaining term. The cash consideration allocated to the equity component was calculated by deducting the fair value of the liability component and interest payment from the total aggregate cash consideration. The difference between the fair value of the 2022 Notes repurchased and the carrying value of $45.2 million resulted in a $5.4 million loss on extinguishment of debt.
In connection with the 2022 Notes offering, the Company entered into a prepaid forward stock repurchase transaction (Prepaid Forward) with a financial institution (Forward Counterparty). Pursuant to the Prepaid Forward, the Company used approximately $78.0 million of the net proceeds from the offering of the 2022 Notes to fund the Prepaid Forward. The aggregate number of shares of the Company’s Class A common stock underlying the Prepaid Forward was approximately 9.2 million. The original expiration date for the Prepaid Forward was April 15, 2022, with the option for early settlement in whole or in part. Upon settlement of the Prepaid Forward, the Forward Counterparty would deliver to the Company the number of shares of Class A common stock underlying the Prepaid Forward or the portion thereof being settled early. The shares purchased under the Prepaid Forward were treated as treasury stock on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets (and not outstanding for purposes of the calculation of basic and diluted income (loss) per share), but remained outstanding for corporate law purposes, including for purposes of any future stockholders’ votes, until the Forward Counterparty delivered the shares underlying the Prepaid Forward to the Company.
In the fourth quarter of 2020, 8.8 million shares out of the 9.2 million shares of Class A common stock underlying the Prepaid Forward were early settled and delivered to the Company. In April 2021, the remaining 0.4 million shares of Class A common stock underlying the Prepaid Forward were early settled and delivered to the Company. There was no financial statement impact due to the return of shares; however, shares outstanding for corporate law purposes were reduced by the early settlement.
On April 15, 2022, the Company repaid $125.0 million of principal and $2.2 million of accrued interest in cash to the debt holders to fully settle the 2022 Notes on the maturity date. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company’s average stock price did not exceed the initial conversion price of $10.64 of the 2022 Notes, so there was no further dilution.
2025 Convertible Notes
In November 2020, the Company issued $125.0 million aggregate principal amount of 1.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 and granted an option to the initial purchasers to purchase up to an additional $18.8 million aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Notes to cover over-allotments, of which $18.8 million was subsequently exercised during November 2020, resulting in a total issuance of $143.8 million aggregate principal amount of the 2025 Notes. The 2025 Notes are senior, unsecured obligations of the Company and mature on November 15, 2025, unless earlier repurchased or converted into shares of Class A common stock under certain circumstances. The 2025 Notes are convertible into cash, shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, or a combination thereof, at the Company’s election, at an initial conversion rate of 107.1984 shares of Class A common stock per $1,000 principal amount of the 2025 Notes, which is equivalent to an initial conversion price of approximately $9.3285 per share of common stock, subject to adjustment. The Company pays interest on the 2025 Notes semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year.
The Company may redeem all or any portion of the 2025 Notes on or after November 20, 2023 for cash if the last reported sale price of the Company’s common stock has been at least 130% of the conversion price then in effect

for least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during any 30 consecutive trading day period (including the last trading day of such period) ending on, and including, the trading day immediately preceding the date on which the Company provides the redemption notice, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2025 Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued interest and unpaid interest to, but excluding the redemption date. No sinking fund is provided for the 2025 Notes. The indenture includes customary terms and covenants, including certain events of default after which the 2025 Notes may be due and payable immediately.
Holders have the option to convert the 2025 Notes in multiples of $1,000 principal amount at any time prior to August 15, 2025, but only in the following circumstances:
during any calendar quarter beginning after the calendar quarter ending on March 31, 2021, if the last reported sale price of Class A common stock for at least 20 trading days (whether or not consecutive) during the last 30 consecutive trading days of the immediately preceding fiscal quarter is greater than or equal to 130% of the conversion price of the 2025 Notes on each applicable trading day;
during the five-business day period following any five consecutive trading day period in which the trading price for the 2025 Notes is less than 98% of the product of the last reported sale price of Class A common stock and the conversion rate for the 2025 Notes on each such trading day;
if the Company calls any or all of the 2025 Notes for redemption, at any time prior to the close of business on the scheduled trading day immediately before the redemption date; or
upon the occurrence of specified corporate events.
At any time on or after August 15, 2025 until the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the maturity date of the 2025 Notes on November 15, 2025, a holder may convert its 2025 Notes, in multiples of $1,000 principal amount. Holders of the 2025 Notes who convert their 2025 Notes in connection with a make-whole fundamental change (as defined in the indenture) are, under certain circumstances, entitled to an increase in the conversion rate. In addition, in the event of a fundamental change prior to the maturity date, holders will, subject to certain conditions, have the right, at their option, to require the Company to repurchase for cash all or part of the 2025 Notes at a repurchase price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the 2025 Notes to be repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the repurchase date. During the three months ended September 30, 2022, the conditions allowing holders of the 2025 Notes to convert were not met.
In connection with the offering of the 2025 Notes, the Company paid $10.2 million to enter into privately negotiated capped call transactions with certain financial institutions (Capped Calls). The Capped Calls have an initial strike price of $9.3285 per share, which corresponds to the initial conversion price of the 2025 Notes. The Capped Calls cover, subject to anti-dilution adjustments substantially similar to those applicable to the conversion rate of the 2025 Notes, the number of Class A common stock initially underlying the 2025 Notes. The Capped Calls are generally expected to reduce potential dilution to the Company’s Class A common stock upon any conversion of the 2025 Notes and/or offset any cash payments the Company is required to make in excess of the principal amount of converted 2025 Notes, as the case may be, with such reduction and/or offset subject to a cap, initially equal to $12.0925, and is subject to certain adjustments under the terms of the Capped Call transactions. The Capped Calls will expire in November 2025, if not exercised earlier.
The Capped Calls are subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of specified extraordinary events affecting the Company, including merger events, tender offers and announcement events. In addition, the Capped Calls are subject to certain specified additional disruption events that may give rise to a termination of the Capped Calls, including nationalization, insolvency or delisting, changes in law, failures to deliver, insolvency filings and hedging disruptions. For accounting purposes, the Capped Calls are separate transactions, and not part of the terms of the 2025 Notes. As these transactions meet certain accounting criteria, the Capped Calls are recorded in stockholders’ equity as a reduction to additional paid-in capital and will not be remeasured as long as they continue to meet certain accounting criteria.
Accounting for the 2022 and 2025 Convertible Notes
Pre adoption of ASU 2020-06
The 2022 and 2025 Convertible Notes were separated into liability and equity components for accounting

purposes. The carrying amounts of the liability component were initially calculated by measuring the fair value of similar liabilities that do not have associated convertible features. The carrying amounts of the equity component representing the conversion option were determined by deducting the fair value of the liability component from the par value of the respective Convertible Senior Notes. This difference represents the debt discount that was amortized to interest expense over the respective terms of the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes using the effective interest rate method. Upon issuance, the carrying amounts of the liability component from the issuance of the 2022 Notes and the 2025 Notes of $128.3 million and $106.9 million, respectively were recorded in long-term debt on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. The carrying amounts of the equity component representing the conversion option was determined to be $46.7 million and $36.9 million for the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes, respectively, upon issuance. The equity component was recorded in additional paid-in-capital and is not remeasured so long as it continued to meet the conditions for equity classification.
The liability component was accreted up to the face value of the 2022 Notes of $175.0 million and 2025 Notes of $143.8 million, which resulted in non-cash interest expense being recognized in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The accretion of the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes to par to long-term debt was amortized into interest expense over the term of the 2022 Note and 2025 Notes using an effective interest rate of approximately 10.5% and 7.5%, respectively.
In accounting for the debt issuance costs of $5.7 million and $4.7 million related to the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes, respectively, the Company allocated each of the total amounts incurred to the liability and equity components of the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes based on their relative values. Issuance costs attributable to the liability component of the 2022 Notes were $4.2 million upon issuance and were amortized, along with the debt discount, to interest expense over the contractual term of the 2022 Notes at an effective interest rate of 10.5%. Issuance costs attributable to the liability component of the 2025 Notes were $3.5 million upon issuance and were amortized, along with the debt discount, to interest expense over the contractual term of the 2025 Notes at an effective interest rate of 7.5%. Issuance costs attributable to the equity component were $1.5 million and $1.2 million for the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes, respectively, and were netted against the equity component representing the conversion option in additional paid-in-capital.
Post adoption of ASU 2020-06
On January 1, 2022, the Company adopted ASU 2020-06 based on the modified retrospective transition method. Under such transition, prior-period information has not been retrospectively adjusted. Upon adoption of ASU 2020-06, the Company is no longer recording the conversion feature of its 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes in equity. Instead, the Company combined the previously separated equity component with the liability component, which together are now classified as debt, thereby eliminating the subsequent amortization of the debt discount as interest expense. Similarly, the portion of debt issuance costs previously allocated to equity was reclassified to debt and amortized as interest expense. Accordingly, the Company recorded a decrease to additional paid-in-capital of $78.2 million, a decrease to accumulated deficit of $47.1 million, and an increase to the debt balance of the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes of $2.3 million and $28.8 million, respectively. In addition, the Company recorded the reversal of U.S. deferred tax liabilities (net) of $7.3 million associated with the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes upon the adoption of ASU 2020-06, with a corresponding decrease to accumulated deficit for the same amount.
As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the outstanding principal on the 2022 Notes was zero and $125.0 million, respectively, the unamortized debt discount was zero and $2.4 million, respectively, the unamortized debt issuance cost was zero and $0.2 million, respectively, and the net carrying amount of the liability was zero and $122.4 million, respectively, which was recorded as short-term debt within the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. For the three months ended September 30, 2022, and 2021, the Company recorded interest expense of zero and $1.1 million, respectively, for contractual coupon interest, and zero and $0.1 million, respectively, for amortization of debt issuance costs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, and 2021, the Company recorded interest expense of $1.3 million and $3.3 million, respectively, for contractual coupon interest, and $0.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively, for amortization of debt issuance costs. For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded zero and $2.0 million, respectively, for amortization of the debt discount, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded zero and $5.8 million, respectively, for amortization of the debt discount.
As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the outstanding principal on the 2025 Notes was $143.8

million, the unamortized debt discount was zero and $29.8 million, respectively, the unamortized debt issuance cost was $3.0 million and $2.7 million, respectively, and the net carrying amount of the liability was $140.8 million and $111.3 million, respectively, which was recorded as long-term debt within the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded interest expense of $0.4 million and $0.4 million, respectively, for contractual coupon interest, and $0.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, for amortization of debt issuance costs. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded interest expense of $1.3 million and $1.3 million, respectively, for contractual coupon interest, and $0.7 million and $0.6 million, respectively, for amortization of debt issuance costs. For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded zero and $1.6 million, respectively, for amortization of the debt discount, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, the Company recorded zero and $4.7 million, respectively, for amortization of the debt discount.

5. Stockholders' equity
Stock Repurchase Program. On January 27, 2022, the Company’s board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $100 million of its Class A capital stock. Stock repurchases under the program may be made periodically using a variety of methods, including without limitation, open market purchases, block trades or otherwise in compliance with all federal and state securities laws and state corporate law and in accordance with the single broker, timing, price, and volume guidelines set forth in Rule 10b-18 and Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as such guidelines may be modified by the SEC from time to time. This stock repurchase program has no time limit and may be modified, suspended, or discontinued at any time. The Company currently intends to hold its repurchased shares as treasury stock.
As of September 30, 2022, the remaining amount of share repurchases under the program was $68.4 million. The following table summarizes share repurchases during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022. There were no share repurchases during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Equity incentive plans. The Company has outstanding equity grants from its three stock-based employee compensation plans: the 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (2014 Plan), the 2010 Equity Incentive Plan (2010 Plan) and the 2014 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP). No new options or awards have been granted under the 2010 Plan since June 2014. Outstanding options and awards under the 2010 Plan continue to be subject to the terms and conditions of the 2010 Plan. Options granted under the 2014 Plan generally expire within ten years from the date of grant and generally vest over one to four years. Restricted stock units (RSUs) granted under the 2014 Plan generally vest over two to four years based upon continued service and are settled at vesting in shares of the Company’s Class A common stock. Performance stock units (PSUs) granted under the 2014 Plan generally vest over three years based upon continued service and the Company achieving certain financial and operating targets, and are settled at vesting in shares of the Company’s Class A common stock. The Company accounts for forfeitures of stock-based payment awards in the period they occur. The ESPP allows eligible employees to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock through payroll deductions at a price equal to 85% of the lesser of the fair market value of the stock as of the first date or the ending date of each six-month offering period. For additional information regarding the Company’s equity incentive plans, refer to the 2021 Annual Report.
