- Recorded first full year of operating profit since 2011
"From all perspectives, fiscal 2019 was a very successful year," said Joshua H. Levine, president and chief executive officer. "We generated 12 percent gross order growth for the year while our efforts to increase efficiencies led to the Company's first operating profit since 2011. Additionally, we set a new quarterly revenue record during the fourth quarter. From a strategic growth perspective, we advanced our opportunities in China which is the world's fastest growing radiotherapy market. It should be noted that our progress during fiscal 2019 came without significant revenue contribution from the China market as the process for awarding and issuing Class A and B user licenses for radiotherapy systems is still in an early phase."

2020 Financial Guidance
The Company is introducing guidance for fiscal year 2020 as follows:
- Total revenue is expected to range between $410.0 million to $420.0 million due to the expected delay in timing of Class A system revenue with total revenue during the first half of the year expected to be slightly below fiscal 2019 levels. The total revenue range includes the impact of 25% Chinese tariffs currently in place
- Adjusted EBITDA is expected to range between $19.0 million to $24.0 million, including a loss of approximately $2 million from our China joint venture equity interest
Guidance for non-GAAP financial measures excludes depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense, net and provision for income taxes.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Accuray has supplemented its GAAP net loss with a non-GAAP measure of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation ("adjusted EBITDA"). Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the company and facilitates a meaningful comparison of results for current periods with previous operating results. A reconciliation of GAAP net loss (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) to non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA is provided in the schedule below.
There are limitations in using these non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures. Investors and potential investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
