"2019 was a productive and successful year for Dario on multiple fronts, as we lay the foundation for operational and financial execution in 2020 and beyond. The Dario platform continued to produce meaningful clinical data that we believe highlights its ability to positively modify user behavior with the goal of better managing chronic conditions for improved health outcomes," said Erez Raphael, DarioHealth's Chief Executive Officer. "While we are early in our commercial launch, we believe our strong user engagement and clinical data position Dario to be a market leading product. With clinical data and capital in hand, and our belief that we are a novel and innovative company in the DTx industry, our primary focus shifts to making the necessary investments to expand our SAAS based membership model into our B2B2C service offering. We believe that this approach is already reflected in the improved gross profits in the second half of 2019, and is expected to provide broader patient adoption, more predictable revenue streams, lower customer acquisition costs and higher gross margins. We are assembling a best in class management team to support these initiatives and have attracted executive commercial talent with relevant experience to take our platform to the next level. We are excited about our prospects in 2020, where we intend to continue implementing our disruptive DTx capabilities and working with additional healthcare providers and payers, and look forward to sharing additional, positive developments in the coming weeks."
Zvi Ben-David, Dario's Chief Financial Officer, Secretary and Treasurer added, "Although this transformation of Dario is still ongoing, the most recent financial results show encouraging signs of a positive impact. Revenues derived from membership (SaaS sales) increased from $562,000 in 2018 to $2.9 million in 2019. Gross profit improved from 13% in Q4 2018 to 46.7% in Q4 2019. We also strengthened our balance sheet with a successful financing in 2019, supplying us with what we believe to be the necessary capital to execute on our strategy and providing cash runway into 2021."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with peer companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.
Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures provided in the financial statement tables below.
Billings (non-GAAP). We define billings as revenue recognized in accordance with GAAP plus the change in deferred revenue from the beginning to the end of the period and adjustment to the deferred revenue balance due to adoption of the new revenue recognition standard less any deferred revenue balances acquired from business combination(s) during the period. We consider billings to be a useful metric for management and investors because billings drive future revenue, which is an important indicator of the health and viability of our business. There are a number of limitations related to the use of billings instead of GAAP revenue. First, billings include amounts that have not yet been recognized as revenue and are impacted by the term of security and support agreements. Second, we may calculate billings in a manner that is different from peer companies that report similar financial measures. Management accounts for these limitations by providing specific information regarding GAAP revenue and evaluating billings together with GAAP revenue.
