Additionally, the Company expects that its full year 2022 total revenue growth will be in excess of 40%.

Fully Diluted Share Count: Approximately 129.6 million shares as of September 30, 2021. Excluding shares that are issuable with respect to outstanding options and restricted stock units (“RSUs”) that have been granted but have not yet vested or satisfied the service-based vesting condition per their terms, the fully diluted share count is 114.0 million. Both measures are calculated on a treasury stock method basis with respect to all common and preferred shares assuming a hypothetical per-share price of $32.02, the price of our series F preferred stock offering.

These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. Refer to the Forward-Looking Statements safe harbor below for information on the factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from these forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss per share expectations exclude expenses related to stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes (inclusive of stock-based compensation expense associated with the satisfaction of the performance-based vesting condition upon the Company’s listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market related to RSUs, for which the service-based vesting condition has already been met), amortization of acquired intangible assets, and non-recurring costs, such as direct listing costs. Direct listing costs are expected to be between $15.2 million and $15.5 million in Q3 2021 and $17.3 million and $17.7 million for the full year 2021. A reconciliation to GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share has not been provided as the quantification of certain items included in the calculation of GAAP loss from operations and GAAP net loss per share cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time without unreasonable efforts. For example, the non-GAAP adjustment for stock-based compensation expense requires additional inputs such as the number and value of awards granted that are not currently ascertainable, and the non-GAAP adjustment for amortization of acquired intangible assets depends on the timing and value of intangible assets acquired that cannot be accurately forecasted.
