Non-GAAP Disclosure
In addition to the company's financial results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the company provides non-GAAP measures that it determines to be useful in evaluating its operating performance. The company presents EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, as well as non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA consist of net loss after adjustment for those items shown in the table below. The company defines non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin as GAAP gross profit and GAAP gross margin, respectively, excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets. The amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets used in the calculation of non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin pertain only to the amortization associated with developed technology acquired and recorded through purchase accounting transactions. The amortization of these intangible assets will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating the company’s operating performance. The company uses this non-GAAP financial information to evaluate ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental information purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For example, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets although such measures include the revenue associated with the acquisitions. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP, see below "EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliations" and “Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin Reconciliations.”

About Cologuard
The Cologuard test was approved by the FDA in August 2014, and results from Exact Sciences’ prospective 90-site, point-in-time, 10,000-patient pivotal trial were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in March 2014. The Cologuard test is included in the American Cancer Society’s (2018) colorectal cancer screening guidelines and the recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (2021) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (2016). The Cologuard test is indicated to screen adults 45 years of age and older who are at average risk for colorectal cancer by detecting certain DNA markers and blood in the stool. Do not use the Cologuard test if you have had precancer, have inflammatory bowel disease and certain hereditary syndromes, or have a personal or family history of colorectal cancer. The Cologuard test is not a replacement for colonoscopy in high risk patients. The Cologuard test performance in adults ages 45-49 is estimated based on a large clinical study of patients 50 and older. The Cologuard test performance in repeat testing has not been evaluated.

The Cologuard test result should be interpreted with caution. A positive test result does not confirm the presence of cancer. Patients with a positive test result should be referred for diagnostic colonoscopy. A negative test result does not confirm the absence of cancer. Patients with a negative test result should discuss with their doctor when they need to be tested again. Medicare and most major insurers cover the Cologuard test. For more information about the Cologuard test, visit www.cologuard.com. Rx only.

About Oncotype DX
The Oncotype DX® portfolio of breast, colon and prostate cancer tests applies advanced genomic science to reveal the unique biology of a tumor in order to optimize cancer treatment decisions. In breast cancer, the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® test is the only test that has been shown to predict the likelihood of chemotherapy benefit as well as recurrence in invasive breast cancer. Additionally, the Oncotype DX Breast DCIS Score test predicts the likelihood of recurrence in a pre-invasive form of breast cancer called DCIS. In prostate cancer, the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score® test predicts disease aggressiveness and further clarifies the current and future risk of the cancer prior to treatment intervention, and the Oncotype DX AR-V7 Nucleus DetectTM test helps determine which patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC)



are resistant to androgen receptor (AR)-targeted therapies. The Oncotype DX AR-V7 Nucleus Detect test is performed by Epic Sciences at its centralized, CLIA-certified laboratory in San Diego and offered exclusively by Exact Sciences. The Oncotype tests have redefined personalized medicine by making genomics a critical part of cancer diagnosis and treatment. To learn more about Oncotype tests, visit www.OncotypeIQ.com, www.MyBreastCancerTreatment.org or www.MyProstateCancerTreatment.org.

About Exact Sciences' Therapy Selection Program
Exact Sciences' therapy selection program includes two comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) tests to help physicians identify the genomic mutations driving advanced cancers, leading patients to better care through targeted cancer treatments. The oncomap ExTra test, formerly known as GEM ExTra®, detects damage in tumor genes and provides a complete biological picture of certain refractory, rare, or aggressive cancers. With an extensive panel of approximately 20,000 genes and 169 introns, the oncomap ExTra test is one of the most comprehensive genomic (DNA) and transcriptomic (RNA) panels available today. The oncomap ExTra test provides physicians, academic medical centers, and biopharma researchers with vital interpreted information to understand changes to a patient's tumor genomic profile and recommend therapeutic treatment plans. For patients with advanced and metastatic cancer, the company offers the oncomap test, formerly known as Oncotype MAP, a rapid, comprehensive tumor profiling panel, which delivers results in three to five business days and allows physicians to understand a patient's tumor profile and recommend actionable targeted therapies or clinical trials.

About PreventionGenetics
Founded in 2004 and located in Marshfield, Wisconsin, PreventionGenetics is a CLIA and ISO 15189:2012 accredited laboratory. PreventionGenetics delivers clinical genetic testing of the highest quality at fair prices with exemplary service to people around the world.

(1) Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, the Company is making changes to its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures following guidance from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Company will no longer include research and development charges from asset acquisitions as an adjustment to EBITDA. Included in EBITDA during the three months ended March 31, 2021, is a $52.3 million charge to research and development expense from the Company acquiring a worldwide exclusive license to the proprietary Targeted Digital Sequencing ("TARDIS") technology from The Translational Genomics Research Institute ("TGen"). The acquisition was treated as an asset acquisition under U.S. GAAP and resulted in the full amount being charged to research and development expense.

(2) Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, the Company made an update to its non-GAAP measures policy to include the Company's 401(k) match expense in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA. The Company matches a portion of Exact Sciences employees' contributions annually in the form of the Company's common stock. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2021 has been updated accordingly for comparative purposes. Of the $65.5 million incurred for the three months ended March 31, 2022, $52.4 million is related to stock-based compensation and $13.0 million is related to the 401(k) match expense. Of the $71.2 million incurred for the three months ended March 31, 2021, $63.1 million is related to stock-based compensation and $8.1 million is related to the 401(k) match expense.

(3) Represents acquisition and related integration costs incurred as a result of the Company's business combinations and asset acquisitions, a majority of which relates to our acquisition of Thrive Earlier Detection Corp. ("Thrive") for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. Stock-based compensation including the incremental fair value of assumed stock awards and accelerated vesting from post-acquisition qualified termination events was zero and $100.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, $5.2 million of total stock-based compensation costs were related to stock awards that were cash-settled. Legal and other professional service fees were $0.7 million and $15.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. A gain of $26.7 million and an expense of $2.9 million was incurred for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, resulting from the remeasurement of the contingent consideration liabilities in connection with business combinations.
