Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On August 16, 2021, Danimer Scientific, Inc. (“Danimer” or the “Company”) issued a press release announcing its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021. A copy of this press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The press release contains the following non-GAAP measures: “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Adjusted EBITDAR” and “Adjusted Gross Profit”. The Company believes that each of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDAR and Adjusted Gross Profit is useful to investors in evaluating the Company’s performance because each measure considers the performance of Danimer’s operations, excluding decisions made with respect to capital investment, financing and other non-recurring charges. Danimer believes these non-GAAP metrics offer additional financial information that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliation to GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of its results of operations and the factors and trends affecting its business. The non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP financial measures within the press release. The Company cautions that non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the Company’s reported GAAP results. Additionally, the Company notes that there can be no assurance that the above referenced non-GAAP financial measures are comparable to similarly titled financial measures used by other publicly traded companies
The information in this Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K and Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing of Danimer, whether made before or after the date hereof, regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing, unless expressly incorporated by specific reference to such filing.
Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
