Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information calculated other than in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). The non-GAAP measures presented by the Company are not measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP and may exclude items that are significant in understanding and assessing the Company's financial results. Therefore, these measures should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operations or other measures of profitability, liquidity or performance under GAAP. Arbe's presentation of these measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which expense and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP measures used in this press release are Non-GAAP Net Loss and Adjusted EBITDA. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they present a measure of the Company's core business that management uses internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the Company's Net Loss can be found immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows included in this press release. In evaluating Arbe, undue reliance should not be placed on the non-GAAP financial information.

Forward-Looking Statements 

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Such statements include information regarding Arbe's current beliefs, plans and expectations, including, without limitation, Arbe's belief that it will continue to be able to execute strongly on its business plan.

Forward-looking statements are made on the basis of management's current views and assumptions and are not guarantees of future performance. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, and actual events that occur, to differ materially from results contemplated by the forward-looking statements.
