Revenue Disaggregation

(In millions)
(Unaudited)
The following supplemental table presents segment revenues by revenue category from
continuing operations for the three months and fiscal year ended, June 30, 2020 and 2019:

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company determined that certain revenue
within the CDKI segment categorized as Subscription should be applied to On-site license
and installation. As a result, for the three months and year ended June 30, 2019, the
Company has reclassified $5.2 million and $17.9 million of revenue to conform to the
current year presentation. This reclassification did not impact the Consolidated Statements
of Operations.
CDK Global, Inc.
Performance Metrics
(Unaudited)
CDK management regularly reviews the following key performance measures to evaluate
business results and make operating and strategic decisions. These measures are intended
to provide directional information regarding trends in our recurring subscription revenues.
The following table summarizes these measures for recurring subscription revenues in our
segments.

(a) Average revenue per Dealer Management System (DMS) customer site has been updated
for fiscal 2019 to reflect budgeted foreign exchange rates for fiscal 2020.
(b) DMS Customer Sites – We track the number of retail customer sites with an active DMS
that sell vehicles in the automotive and adjacent markets as an indicator of our opportunity
set for generating subscription revenue. We consider a DMS to be active if we have billed a
subscription fee for that solution during each applicable month presented in the table.
Adjacent markets include heavy truck dealerships that provide vehicles to the over-the-road
trucking industry, recreation dealerships in the motorcycle, marine, and recreational vehicle
industries, and heavy equipment dealerships in the agriculture and construction equipment
industries.
(c) Average Revenue Per DMS Customer Site – Average revenue per DMS customer site is an
indicator of the scope of adoption of our solutions by DMS customers, and we monitor
changes in this metric to measure the effectiveness of our strategy to deepen our
relationships with our current customer base through upgrading and expanding solutions.
We calculate average revenue per DMS customer site by dividing revenue generated from
our solutions, in an applicable quarterly period by the average number of DMS customer
sites in the same period. The metric excludes subscription revenue generated by customers
not included in our DMS customer site count as well as subscription revenue related to
certain installation and training activities that is deferred then recognized as revenue over
the life of the contract.  Revenue underlying this metric is based on budgeted foreign
exchange rates. When we discuss growth in average revenue per DMS customer site,
revenue for the comparable prior period has been adjusted to reflect budgeted foreign
exchange rates for the current period.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We disclose certain financial measures for our consolidated and operating segment results
on both a GAAP and a non-GAAP (adjusted) basis. The non-GAAP financial measures
disclosed should be viewed in addition to, and not as an alternative to, results prepared in
accordance with GAAP.  Our use of each of the following non-GAAP financial measures may
differ from similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies, and
other companies may not define these non-GAAP financial measures, or reconcile them to
the comparable GAAP financial measures, in the same way.

We use adjusted earnings before income taxes, adjusted provision for income taxes,
adjusted net earnings attributable to CDK, adjusted diluted earnings attributable to CDK per
share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin internally to evaluate our performance
on a consistent basis, because those measures adjust for the impact of certain items that we
believe do not directly reflect our underlying operations. By adjusting for these items we
believe we have more precise inputs for use as factors in (i) our budgeting process, (ii)
making financial and operational decisions, (iii) evaluating ongoing segment and overall
operating performance on a consistent period-to-period basis and relative to our
competitors, (iv) target leverage calculations, (v) debt covenant calculations, and (vi)
determining incentive-based compensation.
We believe our non-GAAP financial measures are helpful to users of the financial statements
because they (i) provide investors with meaningful supplemental information regarding
financial performance by excluding certain items, (ii) permit investors to view performance
using the same tools that management uses, and (iii) otherwise provide supplemental
information that may be useful to investors in evaluating our ongoing operating results on a
consistent basis. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures,
when considered in addition to the corresponding GAAP financial measures and the
reconciliations to those measures disclosed below, provides investors with a better
understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business than could be obtained
absent these disclosures.
We incorporated additional adjustments within our calculations of non-GAAP financial
measures where management has deemed it appropriate to better reflect our underlying
operations. These adjustments are inconsistent in amount and frequency and do not
directly reflect our underlying operations. Therefore, management believes that excluding
such information provides us with a better understanding of our ongoing operating
performance across periods. Prior period information has been revised to conform to the
new presentation.
Adjusted Earnings before Income Taxes
Management has excluded the following items from adjusted earnings before income taxes
for the periods presented:
 Total stock-based compensation expense included within Cost of revenues and Selling,
general and administrative expenses.

 Amortization of acquired intangible assets consists of amortization of intangible assets such
as customer lists, purchased software, and trademarks acquired in connection with business
combinations. Although we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets from our
non-GAAP measure, we believe that it is important for the users of the financial statements
to understand that the associated intangible assets contribute to revenue generation.
 Transaction and integration-related expenses include: (i) legal, accounting, outside service
fees, and other costs incurred in connection with assessment and integration of acquisitions
and other strategic business opportunities; and (ii) post-close adjustments to acquisition-
related contingent consideration, reported within Cost of revenues and Selling, general and
administrative expenses.
 Legal and other expenses, including litigation provision, related to regulatory and
competition matters included within Selling, general and administrative expenses, and
Litigation provision.

and systems and tools used by the Company. The investment to implement this holistic
business reform, including the design and implementation of a new enterprise resource
planning (“ERP”) system will be completed over a three-year time horizon. The expense is
included within Cost of revenues and Selling, general and administrative expenses.

incurred in connection with our business transformation plan. Restructuring expense in

foreign earnings that are no longer considered indefinitely reinvested as of March 31, 2020.

to the COVID-19 pandemic and its potential impact on CDK’s liquidity needs. In the fourth
quarter of fiscal 2020, an adjustment was made to true up the estimate recorded in the
third quarter of fiscal 2020.
 In fiscal 2019, decrease in valuation allowance associated with a deferred tax asset for a
capital loss carryforward which the Company expected to utilize in connection with the plan
to divest the Digital Marketing Business. In fiscal 2020, based on new information about the
plan for the sale the valuation allowance was restored.
 
 In fiscal 2020, a one-time tax benefit of $1.2 million for an adjustment of an accrual for
foreign withholding taxes related to undistributed earnings and in fiscal 2019, a one-time
tax expense of $3.4 million from a revaluation of deferred tax assets associated with
executive compensation as a result of the Tax Reform Act offset by $0.6 million tax benefit
due to a true-up to the one-time transition tax initially recorded in fiscal 2018 as a result of
the Tax Reform Act.
Adjusted Net Earnings Attributable to CDK and Adjusted Diluted Net Earnings Attributable to
CDK per Share
For each respective presentation, management has excluded loss (earnings) from
discontinued operations, net of taxes associated with the Company’s plan to divest Digital
Marketing Business, in addition to the items described above for adjusted earnings before
income taxes and adjusted provision for income taxes from adjusted net earnings
attributable to CDK and adjusted diluted net earnings attributable to CDK per share.
The portion of expense related to noncontrolling interest of $0.1 million, has been removed
from legal and other expenses related to regulatory and competition matters during the

interest of $0.3 million and $0.1 million has been removed from amortization of acquired

Free Cash Flow
We also review free cash flow from continuing operations as a measure of our ability to
generate additional cash from our business operations. Free cash flow from continuing
operations is defined as cash flow from operating activities less net cash flows used in
operating activities attributable to discontinued operations, amounts paid for capital
expenditures and capitalized software and change in restricted cash. Free cash flow from
continuing operations should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for
consolidated net income as a measure of our performance and net cash provided by
operating activities as a measure of our liquidity.

The change in restricted cash is funds held for clients before remittance to agencies for
titling and registration services on behalf of those clients. Funds receivable was $40.7
million and $32.3 million as of June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively.
Constant Currency
We use constant currency revenues and constant currency adjusted earnings before income
taxes to review revenues and adjusted earnings before income taxes for our consolidated
and operating segment results on a constant currency basis to understand underlying
business trends. To present these results on a constant currency basis, current period
results for entities reporting in currencies other than the U.S. dollar were translated
into U.S. dollar using the average monthly exchange rates for the comparable prior period.
As a result, constant currency results neutralize the effects of foreign currency.
