Notes to Consolidated and Condensed Financial Statements
(Unaudited)
 
1. Basis of Presentation
Wayfair Inc. (the “Company”) is one of the world's largest online destinations for the home. Through its e-commerce business model, the Company offers visually inspired browsing, compelling merchandising, easy product discovery and attractive prices for over eight million products from over 10,000 suppliers.
The consolidated and condensed financial statements and other disclosures contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are those of the Company. The consolidated and condensed balance sheet data as of December 31, 2016 was derived from audited financial statements. The accompanying consolidated and condensed balance sheet as of March 31, 2017, the consolidated and condensed statements of operations, consolidated and condensed statements of comprehensive loss, and consolidated and condensed statements of cash flows for the periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 are unaudited. The unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the audited consolidated financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position as of March 31, 2017 and statements of operations, comprehensive loss, and cash flows for the periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. The financial data and the other information disclosed in these notes to the consolidated and condensed financial statements related to these periods are unaudited.
The consolidated and condensed statements of operations, comprehensive loss, and cash flows for the period ended March 31, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations and cash flows that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2017, or for any other period. 
2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
The Company has identified the significant accounting policies that are critical to understanding its business and results of operations. The Company believes that there have been no significant changes during the three months ended March 31, 2017 to the items disclosed in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, included in Part II, Item 8, Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
3. Marketable Securities and Fair Value Measurements
Marketable Securities
As of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, all of the Company’s marketable securities were classified as available-for-sale and their estimated fair values were $97.5 million and $99.7 million, respectively. The Company periodically reviews its available-for-sale securities for other-than-temporary impairment. The Company considers factors such as the duration, severity and the reason for the decline in value, the potential recovery period, and its intent to sell. As of March 31, 2017, the Company’s available-for-sale securities primarily consisted of corporate bonds and other government obligations that are priced at fair value. During the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, the Company did not recognize any other-than-temporary impairment loss. The maturities of the Company’s long-term marketable securities generally range from one to three years. The cost basis of a marketable security sold is determined by the Company using the specific identification method. During the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, we did not have any realized gains or losses.
 The following tables present details of the Company’s marketable securities as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 (in thousands):

Fair Value Measurements
The Company's financial assets and liabilities are measured at fair value, which is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows:
Level 1—Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2—Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, unadjusted quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or inputs other than quoted prices that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full-term of the asset or liability
Level 3—Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the asset or liability
This hierarchy requires the Company to use observable market data, when available, and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value. The Company measures its cash equivalents and short-term and long-term investments at fair value. The Company classifies its cash equivalents and restricted cash within Level 1 because the Company values these investments using quoted market prices. The fair value of the Company's Level 1 financial assets is based on quoted market prices of the identical underlying security. The Company classifies short-term and long-term investments within Level 2 because unadjusted quoted prices for identical or similar assets in markets are not active. The Company does not have any assets or liabilities classified as Level 3 financial assets.  
The following tables set forth the fair value of the Company’s financial assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016 based on the three-tier value hierarchy (in thousands):

Property and equipment depreciation and amortization expense was $20.1 million and $10.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. 
6. Commitments and Contingencies
Leases
The Company leases office and warehouse spaces under non-cancelable leases. These leases expire at various dates through 2027 and include discounted rental periods and fixed escalation clauses, which are amortized straight-line over the terms of the lease. Rent expense under operating leases was $11.6 million and $7.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The Company has issued letters of credit for approximately $11.4 million and $10.6 million as security for these lease agreements as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.
As of December 31, 2016, the future minimum rental commitments under non-cancelable leases with initial or remaining terms in excess of one year totaled $568.7 million. Subsequent to December 31, 2016, the Company entered into additional non-cancelable leases in the United States ("U.S.") with initial or remaining terms in excess of one year with total future minimum lease commitments of $50.2 million. Future lease payments have not been reduced by minimum sublease rentals of $9.3 million due to the Company in the future under non-cancelable subleases through 2020.
The Company establishes assets and liabilities for the estimated construction costs incurred under lease arrangements where the Company is considered the owner for accounting purposes only, or build-to-suit leases, to the extent the Company is involved in the construction of structural improvements or takes construction risk prior to commencement of a lease. Upon occupancy of facilities under build-to-suit leases, the Company assesses whether these arrangements qualify for sales recognition under the sale-leaseback accounting guidance. If the Company continues to be the deemed owner, the facilities are accounted for as financing leases.
The construction of one warehouse lease arrangement was completed during the three months ended June 30, 2016, and because the Company concluded it had a letter of credit of $1.2 million, the Company did not meet the sale-leaseback criteria for derecognition of the building asset and liability. Another warehouse lease arrangement was completed in the three months ended March 31, 2017, and because the Company concluded it had a letter of credit of $0.8 million, the Company did not meet the sale-leaseback criteria for derecognition of the building asset and liability. Accordingly, these leases were accounted for as financing obligations and $28.9 million and $12.6 million was recorded in "Lease financing obligation" in the Company’s unaudited consolidated and condensed balance sheets as of June 30, 2016 and March 31, 2017, respectively. The monthly rent payments made to the lessor under the lease agreement are recorded in the Company’s financial statements as land lease expense and principal and interest on the financing obligation. Interest expense on the lease financing obligation reflects the portion of the Company's monthly lease payments that is allocated to interest expense. For the three months ended March 31, 2017, land lease expense was $0.1 million and interest expense on lease financing obligations was $0.9 million. As of March 31, 2017, future minimum commitments related to the financing obligations were $3.5 million and $19.2 million for principal and interest, respectively, through March 31, 2022.
 Collection of Sales or Other Similar Taxes
 Based on the location of the Company’s current operations, it collects and remits sales tax. The Company does not currently collect sales or other similar taxes for the sale of goods in states where no obligation to collect these taxes is required

10


under applicable law. Several states have presented the Company with assessments, alleging that it is required to collect and remit sales or other similar taxes. The aggregate amount of claims from these states, not including taxes allegedly owed for periods subsequent to such assessments or interest and penalties after the date the Company last received such assessments, is approximately $21.9 million. The Company does not believe that it was obligated to collect and remit such taxes, and intends to vigorously defend its position. At this time, the Company believes any losses that may arise from these assessments would be immaterial; however, no assurance can be given as to the outcome of these assessments.
Legal Matters
In September 2016, a putative class action complaint was filed against the Company in the Superior Court of the province of Quebec (Naomi Zouzout v. Wayfair LLC, Case No. PQ 500-06-000809-166) by an individual on behalf of herself and on behalf of all other similarly situated individuals alleging violations of various Canadian consumer protection statutes. Among other remedies, this lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive money damages, costs, and various fees. The Company intends to defend the lawsuit vigorously. At this time, based on available information regarding this litigation, the Company is unable to reasonably assess the ultimate outcome of this case or determine an estimate, or a range of estimates, of potential losses.
From time to time the Company is involved in claims that arise during the ordinary course of business. Although the results of litigation and claims cannot be predicted with certainty, the Company does not currently believe that the outcome of any of these other legal matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company's results of operation or financial condition. Regardless of the outcome, litigation can be costly and time consuming, as it can divert management’s attention from important business matters and initiatives, negatively impacting the Company's overall operations. In addition, the Company may also find itself at greater risk to outside party claims as it increases its operations in jurisdictions where the laws with respect to the potential liability of online retailers are uncertain, unfavorable, or unclear.
7. Equity-Based Compensation
The board of directors of the Company adopted the 2014 Incentive Award Plan ("2014 Plan") to grant cash and equity incentive awards to eligible service providers in order to attract, motivate and retain the talent for which the Company competes. The 2014 Plan is administered by the board of directors of the Company with respect to awards to non-employee directors and by the compensation committee with respect to other participants and provides for the issuance of stock options, SARs, restricted stock, restricted stock units ("RSUs"), performance shares, stock payments, cash payments, dividend awards and other incentives. Prior to the adoption of the 2014 Plan, Wayfair LLC issued certain equity awards pursuant to the Wayfair LLC Amended and Restated Common Unit Plan (the “2010 Plan”), which was administered by the board of directors of Wayfair LLC. Awards issued under this plan that remain outstanding currently represent Class A or Class B common stock of the Company.
8,603,066 shares of Class A common stock were initially available for issuance under awards granted pursuant to the 2014 Plan. The 2014 Plan also contains an evergreen provision whereby the shares available for future grant are increased on the first day of each calendar year beginning January 1, 2016 and ending on and including January 1, 2024. As of January 1, 2017, 8,389,750 shares of Class A common stock were available for future grant under the 2014 Plan. Shares or RSUs forfeited, withheld for minimum statutory tax obligations, and unexercised stock option lapses from the 2010 and 2014 Plans are available for grants of awards under the 2014 Plan. All equity awards granted prior to the initial public offering ("IPO") were subject to two vesting conditions: (i) a service period (typically five years) and (ii) a performance condition (a liquidity event in the form of either a change of control or an IPO, each as defined in the 2010 Plan). Employees were able to retain provisionally vested stock options and shares upon departure. The Company determined that a liquidity event was not probable until the closing of its IPO on October 7, 2014, and as such, no expense was recognized until that date. After the IPO, awards for employees still providing service continue to vest over the remaining service period. Any future grants of awards are expected to vest over the service period.
The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2016-09, "Compensation - Stock Compensation" ("ASU 2016-09") as of January 1, 2017. For additional information, refer to Note 13, Recent Accounting Pronouncements.

8. Segment and Geographic Information
Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available that is evaluated on a regular basis by the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”) in deciding how to allocate resources to an individual segment and in assessing performance. The Company’s CODM is its Chief Executive Officer. 
Beginning the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company changed its operating and reportable segments to U.S. and International. These segments reflect changes in the way the CODM allocates resources and evaluates financial performance, which is based upon each segment's Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as loss before depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation and related taxes, interest and other income and expense, provision for income taxes, and non-recurring items. These charges are excluded from evaluation of segment performance because it facilitates reportable segment performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis. Refer to Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies for the accounting policies of segments.
The Company allocates certain operating expenses to the operating and reportable segments, including "Customer service and merchant fees," "Merchandising, marketing and sales," and "Operations, technology, general and administrative" based on

12


the usage and relative contribution provided to the segments. It excludes from the allocations certain operating expense lines, including "Depreciation and amortization, "Equity based compensation and related taxes," "Interest (income), net," "Other (income) expense, net," and "Provision for income taxes." There are no revenue transactions between the Company's reportable segments.
U.S.
The U.S. segment primarily consists of amounts earned through product sales through the Company's sites in the U.S. and through sites operated by third parties in the U.S.
International
The International segment primarily consists of amounts earned through product sales through the Company's international sites.
Revenue from external customers for each group of similar products and services are not reported to the CODM. Separate identification of this information for purposes of segment disclosure is impractical, as it is not readily available and the cost to develop it would be excessive. No individual country outside of the U.S. provided greater than 10% of total revenue.

9. Income Taxes
Income tax expense was $0.2 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. The income tax expense recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 is primarily related to various foreign income tax assessments, state income taxes and to a lesser extent the amortization of goodwill for tax purposes for which there is no corresponding book deduction.
Deferred income taxes reflect the impact of temporary differences between the amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and such amounts as measured by tax laws. The Company has deferred tax assets related to its net operating loss carryforwards accumulated since the fourth quarter of 2014 and related to net operating loss carryforwards of certain of its foreign subsidiaries. A valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets is required if, based upon the available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The Company reassesses the valuation allowance on a quarterly basis and has provided a valuation allowance for the full amount of its net deferred tax assets.
The Company had no unrecognized tax benefits as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits as a component of income tax expense.

10. Stockholders’ Equity (Deficit)
Preferred Stock
The Company authorized 10,000,000 shares of undesignated preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share, for future issuance. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had no shares of undesignated preferred stock issued or outstanding.
Common Stock
The Company authorized 500,000,000 shares of Class A common stock, $0.001 par value per share, and 164,000,000 shares of Class B common stock, $0.001 par value per share, of which 50,971,401 and 49,945,202 shares of Class A common stock and 35,475,888 and 35,885,692 shares of Class B common stock were outstanding as of March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively. The rights of the holders of Class A common stock and Class B common stock are identical, except with respect to voting and conversion rights. Each share of Class A common stock is entitled to one vote per share and each share of Class B common stock is entitled to ten votes per share. Each share of Class B common stock may be converted into one share of Class A common stock at the option of its holder and will be automatically converted into one share of Class A common stock upon transfer thereof, subject to certain exceptions. In addition, upon the date on which the outstanding shares of Class B common stock represent less than 10% of the aggregate number of shares of the then outstanding Class A common stock and Class B common stock, or in the event of the affirmative vote or written consent of holders of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding shares of Class B common stock, all outstanding shares of Class B common stock shall convert automatically into Class A common stock. Subject to preferences that may apply to any shares of preferred stock outstanding at the time, the holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends out of funds legally available if the Board, in its discretion, determines to issue dividends and then only at the times and in the amounts that the Board may determine. Since the IPO through March 31, 2017, 35,220,479 shares of Class B common stock were converted to Class A common stock. 
11. Credit Agreement
On February 22, 2017, the Company entered into a $40 million credit card program and a credit agreement consisting of a $100 million secured revolving credit facility (the "Revolver") with Citibank, N.A. ("Citibank"). The Citibank credit facility replaced the Company's existing credit facility with Bank of America, N.A. ("Bank of America"), which was terminated on February 22, 2017 as described below.
The Citibank Revolver has a $40 million letter of credit sublimit and a $10 million swing line sublimit, and a final maturity date of February 21, 2020. Wayfair LLC is the borrower (the "Borrower") under the Citibank credit agreement. Subject to certain conditions, the Borrower has the right to increase the Revolver by $25 million. Borrowings under the Revolver will bear interest through maturity at a variable rate based upon, at the Borrower’s option, either the Eurodollar rate or the base rate (which is the highest of (x) Citibank's prime rate, (y) one-half of 1.00% in excess of the federal funds effective rate, and (z) 1.00% in excess of the one-month Eurodollar rate), plus, in each case an applicable margin. From closing until September 30, 2019, the applicable margin for Eurodollar rate loans is 1.75% per annum and the applicable margin for base rate loans is 0.75% per annum. After September 30, 2019, the applicable margin is subject to specified changes depending on the applicable consolidated leverage ratio. Any amounts outstanding under the Revolver are due at maturity. In addition, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the credit agreement, the Borrower is required to make certain mandatory prepayments prior to maturity.
The Citibank credit agreement contains affirmative and negative covenants customarily applicable to senior secured credit facilities, including covenants that, among other things, will limit or restrict the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries, subject to negotiated exceptions, to incur additional indebtedness and additional liens on their assets, engage in mergers or acquisitions or dispose of assets, pay dividends or make other distributions, voluntarily prepay other indebtedness, enter into transactions with affiliated persons, make investments, and change the nature of their businesses. In addition, the Citibank credit agreement requires the Company to maintain certain financial ratios. As of March 31, 2017, the Company was in compliance with its covenants under the Revolver.
The Company previously had a credit agreement with Bank of America, which was replaced by the Citibank credit agreement on February 22, 2017. The Bank of America credit agreement provided the Company with a $20.0 million revolving line of credit to support direct borrowings and letters of credit, provided that a maximum of $5.0 million could be applied to direct borrowings under the revolving line of credit, plus an additional $45.0 million credit card program (which the Company continued to utilize on a transitional basis as of March 31, 2017), for a maximum aggregate commitment of $65.0 million. Subject to the terms and conditions of the Bank of America credit agreement, advances under the line of credit, if any, would bear interest at the LIBOR rate, plus 1.75%. The Bank of America credit agreement also required the Company to maintain certain covenants, including debt service coverage, tangible net worth and unencumbered liquid assets.

15


The Company did not borrow any amounts under the Revolver or the Bank of America credit agreement during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and the year ended December 31, 2016.
12. Net Loss per Share
Basic and diluted net loss per share is presented using the two class method required for participating securities: Class A and Class B common stock. The rights of the holders of Class A and Class B common stock are identical, except with respect to voting and conversion. Each share of Class A common stock is entitled to one vote per share and each share of Class B common stock is entitled to ten votes per share. Each share of Class B common stock may be converted into one share of Class A common stock at any time at the option of the stockholder, and will be automatically converted into one share of Class A common stock upon a sale or transfer, subject to certain limited exceptions. In addition, upon the date on which the outstanding shares of Class B common stock represent less than 10% of the aggregate number of shares of the then outstanding Class A common stock and Class B common stock, or in the event of the affirmative vote or written consent of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding shares of Class B common stock, all outstanding shares of Class B common stock will automatically convert into Class A common stock.
Basic net loss per share attributable to common stockholders is computed using the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share attributable to common stockholders is computed using the weighted-average number of shares of common stock and, if dilutive, common stock equivalents outstanding during the period. The Company's common stock equivalents consist of shares issuable upon the release of restricted stock units, and to a lesser extent, the incremental shares of common stock issuable upon the exercise of stock options and unvested restricted stock. The dilutive effect of these common stock equivalents is reflected in diluted earnings per share by application of the treasury stock method. The Company's basic and diluted net loss per share are the same because the Company has generated net loss attributable to common stockholders and common stock equivalents are excluded from diluted net loss per share because they have an antidilutive impact.
The Company allocates undistributed earnings between the classes on a one-to-one basis when computing net loss per share. As a result, basic and diluted net loss per Class A and Class B shares are equivalent.

13. Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Stock Compensation
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, "Compensation - Stock Compensation" ("ASU 2016-09"). This ASU revises the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and an option to recognize gross stock compensation expense with actual forfeitures recognized as they occur, as well as certain classifications on the statement of cash flows. This ASU is effective for annual reporting periods

16


beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting year, and early adoption is permitted.
The Company adopted ASU 2016-09 as of January 1, 2017 using a modified retrospective approach with the option to recognize gross stock compensation expense with actual forfeitures recognized as they occur, with a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings recognized as of January 1, 2017 of $8.7 million. The adoption of ASU 2016-09 also requires all income tax adjustments to be recorded in the consolidated and condensed statements of operations.
Revenue Recognition
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" ("ASU 2014-09"). This ASU is a comprehensive new revenue recognition model that requires a company to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to a customer at an amount that reflects the consideration it expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. This ASU was originally effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and early adoption was not permitted.
In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers – Deferral of the Effective Date" (ASU-2015-14), which defers the effective date of ASU 2014-09 for one year and permits early adoption as early as the original effective date of ASU 2014-09. Accordingly, ASU 2014-09 is now effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 and early adoption is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting year.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-08, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers - Principal versus Agent Considerations" ("ASU 2016-08"). This ASU clarifies the implementation guidance for principal versus agent considerations in ASU 2014-09. This ASU is effective at the same period as ASU 2015-14 and ASU 2014-09.
Management expects to adopt ASU 2014-09, ASU 2015-14, and ASU 2016-08 (collectively, the "Revenue Recognition Accounting Pronouncements") for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods within that reporting year. While management is still in its assessment process, management generally expects to identify substantially similar performance obligations after adoption of the Revenue Recognition Accounting Pronouncements as compared with deliverables and separate units of accounting under previous revenue recognition guidance. Therefore, the Company generally does not expect the impact of the adoption of the Revenue Recognition Accounting Pronouncements to be significant to its consolidated financial statements. Management expects to apply the Revenue Recognition Accounting Pronouncements retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the Revenue Recognition Accounting Pronouncements recognized at the date of initial application recorded as an adjustment to retained earnings, referred to as the "Modified Retrospective Approach."
Leases
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, "Leases" ("ASU 2016-02"). This ASU revises the accounting related to leases by requiring lessees to recognize a lease liability and a right-of-use asset for all leases. The new lease guidance also simplifies the accounting for sale and leaseback transactions. This ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and early adoption is permitted. Management expects to adopt ASU 2016-02 for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Management is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this ASU on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and expects it will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements, primarily the consolidated balance sheets and related disclosures.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the consolidated and condensed financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. As a result of many factors, such as those included in the Special Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements and Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.
The following discussion includes financial information prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), as well as certain adjusted or non-GAAP financial measures such as Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP diluted net loss per share and free cash flow. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes (or includes) amounts that are included in (or excluded from) the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management believes the use of these non-GAAP measures on a consolidated and reportable segment basis assists investors in understanding the ongoing operating performance of our business by presenting comparable financial results between periods. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, including reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.
Unless the context requires otherwise, references in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to “Wayfair,” “the Company,” “we,” “us” or “our” refer to Wayfair Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. 
Overview
We are one of the world's largest online destinations for the home. Through our e-commerce business model, we offer visually inspired browsing, compelling merchandising, easy product discovery and attractive prices for over eight million products from over 10,000 suppliers. Because of the large market opportunity we see in front of us, we are currently investing across our business, including investments to expand our international business, build our proprietary logistics network and to continue developing various product categories.
Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2016, we changed our operating and reportable segments from one segment to two operating and reportable segments, U.S. and International. The following table presents Direct Retail and Other net revenues attributable to the Company’s reportable segments for the periods presented (in thousands):

Key Financial and Operating Metrics
We measure our business using both financial and operating metrics. Our free cash flow metric is measured on a consolidated basis. Our net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA metrics are measured on a consolidated and segment basis. See Note 8, Segment and Geographic Information, included in Part I, Item 1, Unaudited Consolidated and Condensed Financial Statements, of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. All other key financial and operating metrics are derived and reported from our Direct Retail sales, which includes sales generated primarily through our sites. These metrics do not include net revenue derived from the sites operated by our retail partners. We do not have access to certain customer level information on net revenue derived through our retail partners and therefore cannot measure or disclose it.
We use the following metrics to assess the near-term and longer-term performance of our overall business (in thousands, except LTM Net Revenue per Active Customer and Average Order Value):

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA
To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, we have disclosed here and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as loss before depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation and related taxes, interest and other income and expense, provision for income taxes, and non-recurring items. We have provided a reconciliation below of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. 
We have included Adjusted EBITDA in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to evaluate our operating performance, generate future operating plans, and make strategic decisions regarding the allocation of capital. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons on a period-to-period basis. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.
Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are: 
Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect equity based compensation and related taxes;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in our working capital;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect income tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us;
Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect depreciation and interest expenses associated with the lease financing obligations; and

19


Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Because of these limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss and our other GAAP results.
The following table reflects the reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated (in thousands):

Free Cash Flow
To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, we have also disclosed here and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q free cash flow, a non-GAAP financial measure that we calculate as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less net cash used to purchase property and equipment and site and software development costs. We have provided a reconciliation below of free cash flow to net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
We have included free cash flow in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q because it is an important indicator of our business performance as it measures the amount of cash we generate. Accordingly, we believe that free cash flow provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management.
Free cash flow has limitations as an analytical tool because it omits certain components of the cash flow statement and does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Further, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate free cash flow differently. Accordingly, you should not consider free cash flow in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Because of these limitations, you should consider free cash flow alongside other financial performance measures, including net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, capital expenditures and our other GAAP results.

Key Operating Metrics (Direct Retail)
Active Customers
As of the last date of each reported period, we determine our number of active customers by counting the total number of individual customers who have purchased at least once directly from our sites during the preceding twelve-month period. The change in active customers in a reported period captures both the inflow of new customers as well as the outflow of existing

20


customers who have not made a purchase in the last twelve months. We view the number of active customers as a key indicator of our growth.
LTM Net Revenue Per Active Customer
We define LTM net revenue per active customer as our total net revenue derived from Direct Retail sales in the last twelve months divided by our total number of active customers for the same preceding twelve-month period. We view LTM net revenue per active customer as a key indicator of our customers' purchasing patterns, including their initial and repeat purchase behavior.
Orders Delivered
We define orders delivered as the total Direct Retail orders delivered in any period, inclusive of orders that may eventually be returned. As we ship a large volume of packages through multiple carriers, actual delivery dates may not always be available, and as such we estimate delivery dates based on historical data. We recognize net revenue when an order is delivered and therefore orders delivered, together with average order value, is an indicator of the net revenue we expect to recognize in a given period. We view orders delivered as a key indicator of our growth.
Average Order Value
We define average order value as total Direct Retail net revenue in a given period divided by the orders delivered in that period. We view average order value as a key indicator of the mix of products on our sites, the mix of offers and promotions and the purchasing behavior of our customers.
Factors Affecting our Performance
We believe that our performance and future success depend on a number of factors that present significant opportunities for us but also pose risks and challenges, including those set forth under Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
Components of Our Results of Operations
Net Revenue
Net revenue consists primarily of sales of product from our sites and through the sites of our online retail partners and includes related shipping fees. We deduct cash discounts, allowances and estimated returns from gross revenue to determine net revenue. We recognize product revenue upon delivery to our customers. Net revenue is primarily driven by growth of new and active customers and the frequency with which customers purchase. The products offered on our sites are fulfilled with product we ship to our customers directly from our suppliers and, increasingly, from our CastleGate warehouses.
We also generate net revenue through third-party advertisers that pay us based on the number of advertisement related clicks, actions, or impressions for advertisements placed on our sites. Net revenue earned under these arrangements is included in net revenue and net revenue through our third-party advertisers is recognized in the period in which the click, action or impression occurs. This revenue has not been material to date.
Cost of Goods Sold
Cost of goods sold consists of the cost of product sold to customers, shipping and handling costs and shipping supplies and fulfillment costs. Fulfillment costs include costs incurred in operating and staffing the fulfillment centers, such as costs attributed to receiving, inspecting, picking, packaging and preparing customer orders for shipment. Cost of goods sold also includes direct and indirect labor costs, including equity-based compensation, for fulfillment center oversight, including payroll and related benefit costs. The increase in cost of goods sold is primarily driven by growth in orders delivered, the mix of the product available for sale on our sites and transportation costs related to delivering orders to our customers.
We earn rebates on our incentive programs with our suppliers. These rebates are earned upon shipment of goods. Amounts due from suppliers as a result of these rebate programs are included as a receivable and are reflected as a reduction of cost of goods sold on the consolidated and condensed statements of operations. We also perform logistics services for suppliers through our CastleGate solution, which are earned upon completion of preparing customer orders for shipment and are reflected as a reduction of cost of goods sold on the consolidated and condensed statements of operations. We expect cost of goods sold expenses to remain relatively stable as a percentage of net revenue but some fluctuations are expected due to the wide variety of products we sell.

21


Customer Service and Merchant Fees
Customer service and merchant fees consist of labor-related costs, including equity-based compensation, of our employees involved in customer service activities and merchant processing fees associated with customer payments made by credit cards and debit cards. Increases in our customer service and merchant fees are driven by the growth in our revenue and are expected to remain relatively consistent as a percentage of revenue.
Advertising
Advertising consists of direct response performance marketing costs, such as display advertising, paid search advertising, social media advertising, search engine optimization, comparison shopping engine advertising, television advertising, direct mail, catalog and print advertising. We expect advertising expense to continue to increase but decrease as a percentage of net revenue over time due to our increasing base of repeat customers.
Merchandising, Marketing and Sales
Merchandising, marketing and sales expenses include labor-related costs, including equity-based compensation, for our category managers, buyers, site merchandisers, merchants, marketers and the team who executes our advertising strategy. Sales, marketing and merchandising expenses are primarily driven by investments to grow and retain our customer base. We expect merchandising, marketing and sales expenses to continue to increase as we grow our net revenue.
Operations, Technology and General and Administrative
Operations, technology, general and administrative expenses primarily include labor-related costs, including equity-based compensation, of our operations group that lead our supply chain and logistics, our technology team, building and supporting our sites, and our corporate general and administrative, which includes human resources, finance and accounting personnel. Also included are administrative and professional service fees including audit and legal fees, insurance and other corporate expenses, including depreciation and rent. We anticipate that we will incur additional personnel expenses, professional service fees, including audit and legal, investor relations, costs of compliance with securities laws and regulations, and higher director and officer insurance costs related to operating as a public company. We expect operations, technology, general and administrative expenses will continue to increase as we grow our net revenue and operations.
Interest (Expense) Income, Net
Interest (expense) income, net consists primarily of interest earned on cash, cash equivalents and short-term and long-term investments held by us and partially offset by interest expense on the lease financing obligation.
Other Income, Net
Other income, net consists primarily of foreign currency gains (losses).

In the three months ended March 31, 2017, net revenue increased by $213.5 million, or 28.6% compared to the same period in 2016, primarily as a result of an increase in Direct Retail net revenue. In the three months ended March 31, 2017, Direct Retail net revenue increased by $228.5 million, or 32.1% compared to the same period in 2016, primarily due to sales to a larger customer base, as the number of active customers increased 45.8% as of March 31, 2017 compared to March 31, 2016. Additionally, LTM net revenue per active customer increased 0.5% as of March 31, 2017 compared to March 31, 2016. The $15.0 million or 42.3% decrease in Other revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2017 as compared to the same period in 2016 was primarily due to decreased sales through our retail partners, as we continue to focus more on our Direct Retail business over time.

Excluding the impact of equity based compensation and related taxes, customer service costs and merchant processing fees increased by $7.4 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, primarily due to the increase in net revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2017.
Our advertising expenses increased by $20.6 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, primarily as a result of an increase in online and television advertising. Advertising decreased as a percentage

23


of net revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 primarily due to increased leverage from our growing base of repeat customers, and television advertising expense not increasing at the same rate as revenue growth in the U.S., partially offset by advertising investments in Europe and Canada.
Excluding the impact of equity based compensation and related taxes, merchandising, marketing and sales expenses increased by $10.8 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016, primarily due to an increase in headcount to grow and retain our customer base.
Excluding the impact of equity based compensation and related taxes operations, technology, general and administrative expense increased by $28.9 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016. As our revenue continues to grow, we have invested in headcount in both operations and technology to continue to deliver a great experience for our customers. The increase in operations, technology, general and administrative expense was primarily attributable to personnel costs, rent, information technology, and depreciation and amortization.

Since our inception, we have financed our operations, capital expenditures and acquisitions primarily through cash flows generated by operations and, since 2011, also through private sales of convertible redeemable preferred stock and sales of common stock in connection with our IPO. Since inception through March 31, 2017, we have raised a total of approximately $646.0 million from the sale of preferred stock and common stock, net of costs and expenses associated with such financings, or approximately $453.8 million, net of repurchases of our securities and dividends paid to Series A redeemable convertible preferred stockholders.
We believe that our existing cash and cash equivalents and investments, together with cash generated from operations and the cash available under our revolving credit facility, will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs for at least the foreseeable future. However, our liquidity assumptions may prove to be incorrect, and we could exhaust our available financial resources sooner than we currently expect. In addition, we may elect to raise additional funds at any time through equity, equity linked or debt financing arrangements. Capital expenditures were 3.8% of net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016, and related primarily to putting a new data center online, our ongoing investments in our technology infrastructure, and equipment purchases and improvements for leased warehouses within our expanding supply chain network. Capital expenditures were 2.4% of net revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, below our forecast of 4.0% to 5.0% of net revenue, primarily due to the timing of our build out of our technology infrastructure and logistics network, including our CastleGate warehouses. For the full year 2017, we expect capital expenditures to be approximately 3.0% of net revenue. Our future capital requirements and the adequacy of available funds will depend on many factors, including those described herein and in our other filings with the SEC, including those set forth under in Part I, Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our Annual Report on

24


Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. We may not be able to secure additional financing to meet our operating requirements on acceptable terms, or at all. 
Operating Activities
Cash (used in) provided by operating activities consisted of net loss adjusted for certain non-cash items including depreciation and amortization, equity-based compensation, and certain other non-cash expenses, as well as the effect of changes in working capital and other activities. Operating cash flows can be volatile and are sensitive to many factors, including changes in working capital and our net loss.
Cash used in operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $46.1 million and was driven primarily by net loss of $56.5 million, cash used in operating assets and liabilities of $23.3 million, and other non-cash items of $0.3 million, partially offset by certain non-cash items including depreciation and amortization expense of $20.4 million and equity based compensation of $13.6 million.
Cash used in operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $51.2 million and was driven primarily by net loss of $41.2 million, cash used in operating assets and liabilities of $30.0 million, and other non-cash items of $0.2 million, partially offset by certain non-cash items including depreciation and amortization expense of $10.5 million and equity based compensation of $9.7 million.
 Investing Activities
Our primary investing activities consisted of purchases of property and equipment, particularly purchases of servers and networking equipment, investment in our sites and software development, purchases and disposal of short-term and long-term investments, and leasehold improvements for our facilities.
Cash used in investing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $20.8 million and was primarily driven by purchases of short-term and long-term investments of $16.2 million, purchases of property and equipment of $12.0 million, site, and software development costs of $10.9 million, partially offset by net increase in the maturity of short-term investments of $18.3 million.
Cash used in investing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $28.2 million and was primarily driven by purchases of property and equipment of $23.9 million, purchases of short-term and long-term investments of $28.5 million, and site and software development costs of $5.5 million, partially offset by net increase in the maturity of short-term investments of $29.6 million.
Financing Activities
Cash used in financing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $0.5 million and was primarily due to $0.6 million statutory minimum taxes paid related to net share settlements of equity awards, partially offset by $0.1 million net proceeds from exercise of stock options.
Cash used in financing activities in the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $6.6 million and was primarily due to $6.6 million statutory minimum taxes paid related to net share settlements of equity awards, partially offset by less than $0.1 million net proceeds from exercise of stock options.
Credit Agreement
For information regarding our credit agreement, see Note 11, Credit Agreement, included in Part I, Item 1, Unaudited Consolidated and Condensed Financial Statements, of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not engage in any off-balance sheet activities. We do not have any off-balance sheet interest in variable interest entities, which include special purpose entities and other structured finance entities.

There have been no material changes to our contractual obligations and estimates as compared to the contractual obligations described in Contractual Obligations included in Part II, Item 7, Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, except as disclosed in Note 6, Commitments and Contingencies, included in Part I, Item 1, Unaudited Consolidated and Condensed Financial Statements, of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Critical Accounting Policies

25


Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. The preparation of our financial statements and related disclosures requires us to make estimates, assumptions and judgments that affect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, net revenue, costs and expenses and related disclosures. We believe that the estimates, assumptions and judgments involved in the accounting policies described below have the greatest potential impact on our financial statements and, therefore, we consider these to be our critical accounting policies. Accordingly, we evaluate our estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis. Our actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions. 
There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates as compared to the critical accounting policies and estimates described in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, included in Part II, Item 8, Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
We have operations both within the U.S. and internationally, and we are exposed to market risks in the ordinary course of our business, including the effects of foreign currency fluctuations, interest rate changes and inflation. Information relating to quantitative and qualitative disclosures about these market risks is set forth below.
Interest Rate Sensitivity
Cash and cash equivalents and short-term and long-term investments were held primarily in cash deposits, certificates of deposit, money market funds, and corporate debt. The fair value of our cash, cash equivalents and short-term and long-term investments would not be significantly affected by either an increase or decrease in interest rates due mainly to the short-term nature of these instruments. Interest on the revolving line of credit incurred pursuant to the credit agreement described herein would accrue at a floating rate based on a formula tied to certain market rates at the time of incurrence; however, we do not expect that any change in prevailing interest rates will have a material impact on our results of operations.
Foreign Currency Risk
Most of our sales are denominated in U.S. dollars, and therefore, our revenue is not currently subject to significant foreign currency risk. Our operating expenses are denominated in the currencies of the countries in which our operations are located or in which net revenue is generated, and may be subject to fluctuations due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates, particularly changes in the British Pound, Euro and Canadian Dollar. Fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates may cause us to recognize transaction gains and losses in our statement of operations. To date, foreign currency transaction gains and losses have not been material to our financial statements, and we have not engaged in any foreign currency hedging transactions.
Inflation
We do not believe that inflation has had a material effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations. We continue to monitor the impact of inflation in order to minimize its effects through pricing strategies, productivity improvements and cost reductions. If our costs were to become subject to significant inflationary pressures, we may not be able to fully offset such higher costs through price increases. Our inability or failure to do so could harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.



27


ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Our management, with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by Rule 13a-15(d) or 15d-15(d) of the Exchange Act during the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

SIXTH AMENDMENT TO LEASE
THIS SIXTH AMENDMENT TO LEASE (“Sixth Amendment”) is made and entered into as of the 22 day of February, 2017 by and between COPLEY PLACE ASSOCIATES, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Landlord”), and WAYFAIR LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Tenant”).
Reference is made to the following:
A.That certain lease (“Original Lease”) dated as of April 18, 2013, by and between Landlord and Tenant as amended by a First Amendment to Lease (“First Amendment”) dated as of February 11, 2014 and a Second Amendment to Lease (“Second Amendment”) dated as of October 24, 2014 and a Third Amendment to Lease dated as of October 8, 2015 (“Third Amendment”) and a Fourth Amendment to Lease dated as of February 3, 2016 (“Fourth Amendment”) as supplemented by a letter agreement dated July 28, 2016 (the Fourth Amendment as so supplemented, the “Supplemented Fourth Amendment”) and a Fifth Amendment to Lease dated as of July 29, 2016 (“Fifth Amendment”) by and between Landlord and Tenant (the Original Lease as amended by the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Third Amendment, the Supplemented Fourth Amendment and the Fifth Amendment is referred to herein as the “Lease”) of space in the Office Section of the Building containing 881,660 rentable square feet, known as Copley Place, in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts consisting of approximately 544,479 rentable square feet of space on the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Floors of Four Copley Place and on the Second, Third, Fifth and Sixth Floors of Three Copley Place and on the First, Third, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Floors of One Copley Place and on the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Floors of Two Copley Place (collectively, the “Current Premises”); and

A.
The Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces shall be delivered to Tenant as of the applicable Add to Premises Date in as-is, where-is condition, except that Landlord shall deliver the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces broom-clean and free of all occupants, furniture, debris and other personal property. Subject to the foregoing, without limitation, Landlord shall have no responsibility for any condition or construction within the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces or for any condition above the finished ceilings except with regard to utilities and conduits serving premises other than the Premises, except that the foregoing shall not relieve Landlord from its obligations to deliver the Premises with all base Building systems operational at the Premises and to repair and maintain the Building components described in Section 8.02 of the Original Lease (as the same may be amended from time to time) in accordance with and subject to said Section 8.02 of the Original Lease (as the same may be amended from

-3-



time to time). Subject to the foregoing, the obligations of Landlord under Exhibit B-2 of the Original Lease shall not be applicable to the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces nor shall Tenant have any right to any Allowance with respect to the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces under Article 38 of the Original Lease. Tenant shall be responsible for the demolition of the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces and for all construction therein and for installation of telecommunications, business equipment and furniture (all of which shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Lease regarding Alterations as if the amendment 6 Expansion Spaces were a part of the Premises) and all costs in connection therewith including without limitation, electricity used incident to such demolition and construction therein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, all work necessary to prepare the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces for Tenant’s occupancy shall be performed at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Lease. Furthermore, if any alterations or modifications to the Building are required under applicable Legal Requirements by reason of the density of Tenant’s usage if in excess of ordinary office-related use or the Alterations made by Tenant to the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces which are not ordinary office leasehold improvements, the cost of such Building modifications (including, without limitation, to bathrooms) shall be paid by Tenant.
B.
Solely for the purpose of determining Tenant’s obligations with respect to restoration of the Premises at the end of the Term, all Alterations made by Tenant to initially prepare the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces shall be deemed “Initial Alterations”; accordingly, Tenant shall not be required to remove or restore any of such Alterations (or Alterations that were comparable replacements thereof) whether or not the same are Specialty Alterations. Tenant shall not be required to pay Landlord for the use of elevators and hoists during the making of initial Alterations to the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces.
5.    Letter of Credit. Tenant agrees, on or before October 1, 2017 to increase the Letter of Credit Amount to $6,908,000.00. Section 1.21 of the Lease is hereby amended accordingly.
6.    Boardroom Relocation. Tenant shall be solely responsible for all costs and expenses related to the relocation of its boardroom (the “Boardroom Relocation”); provided, however, Landlord shall provide an allowance for construction and relocation costs (including the purchase of new furniture, fixtures, and equipment for the boardroom) related to the Boardroom Relocation in an amount not to exceed One Hundred Nineteen Thousand One Hundred Eighty and 00/100 Dollars ($119,180.00) (the “Boardroom Allowance”). If the actual cost of the Boardroom Relocation is less than the Boardroom Allowance, Tenant shall not be entitled to any credit, payment or abatement on account thereof. If the actual cost of the Boardroom Relocation exceeds the Boardroom Allowance, Tenant shall be responsible for all

-4-



amounts in excess thereof. Landlord agrees to pay the Boardroom Allowance to Tenant within forty-five (45) days of completion of the Boardroom Relocation and Landlord’s receipt of invoices therefor, together with the contractor’s waiver of liens with respect to such work.
7.    Potential Expansion Space. Section 7 of the Fifth Amendment (including Exhibit “E” of the Fifth Amendment) is hereby deleted in its entirety and is of no further force or effect. In addition, Tenant hereby acknowledges that it did not exercise any rights under said Section 7 prior to January 1, 2017.
8.    Fifth Amendment Right of First Offer. Tenant hereby acknowledges that the terms and conditions of its right of first offer under Section 9 of the Fifth Amendment shall not apply to the leasing of the Amendment 6 Expansion Spaces contemplated under this Sixth Amendment; provided, however, that Tenant’s rights under said Section 9 of the Fifth Amendment shall remain in full force and effect with respect to all of the other space described therein.
9.    Brokerage. Tenant represents that Tenant has dealt with (and only with) Transwestern/RBJ as broker in connection with this Sixth Amendment, and that insofar as Tenant knows, no other broker negotiated this Sixth Amendment or is entitled to any commission in connection therewith. Tenant agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Landlord its employees and agents from and against any claims made by any broker or finder other than the broker described above for a commission or fee in connection with this Sixth Amendment or any sublease hereunder (but nothing herein shall be construed as permitting any such sublease) provided that Landlord has not in fact retained such broker or finder. Landlord agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Tenant, its employees and agents from and against any claims made by any broker or finder named above or any other broker claiming to have earned a commission or fee in connection with this Sixth Amendment, provided Tenant has not in fact retained such broker or finder. In addition, Landlord shall pay the fees of Transwestern/RBJ with respect to this Sixth Amendment in accordance with a separate agreement with such broker.
10.    Miscellaneous.
A.
This Sixth Amendment sets forth the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the matters set forth herein. There have been no additional oral or written representations or agreements. Under no circumstances shall Tenant be entitled to any Rent abatement, improvement allowance, leasehold improvements, or other work to the Premises, or any similar economic incentives that may have been provided Tenant in connection with entering into the Lease, unless specifically set forth in this Sixth Amendment or the Lease as amended hereby. Exhibits attached hereto are incorporated herein by reference.
B.
Landlord and Tenant hereby agree to execute, acknowledge and deliver, in recordable form, an amended notice of the Lease to reflect all of the Premises leased by Tenant under the Lease, consistent with the provisions of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 183, Section 4. Landlord

-5-



represents and warrants to Tenant that as of the date of Landlord’s execution of this Sixth Amendment, there is no mortgage on the Building or the Property. Landlord shall request and use reasonable efforts to obtain from the DOT a recognition agreement with respect to this Sixth Amendment consistent with the provisions of the last paragraph of Article 21 of the Lease.
C.
Except as herein modified or amended, the provisions, conditions and terms of the Lease shall remain unchanged and in full force and effect.
D.
In the case of any inconsistency between the provisions of the Lease and this Sixth Amendment, the provisions of this Sixth Amendment shall govern and control.
E.
Submission of this Sixth Amendment by Landlord is not an offer to enter into this Sixth Amendment, but rather is a solicitation for such an offer by Tenant. Neither party shall be bound by this Sixth Amendment until such party has executed and delivered the same to the other party.
[Signatures appear on the next succeeding page]

The registrant’s other certifying officer and I are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) and internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f)) for the registrant and have:
