1 Dollar-Based Net Expansion Rate (DBNER) measures the change in existing customers’ revenue from usage of our platform over a twelve month period, excluding the effect of new and churned customers.. We calculate DBNER by dividing the revenue for a given period from customers who remained customers as of the last day of the given period (the “current” period) by the revenue from the same customers for the same period measured one year prior (the “base” period). The revenue included in the current period excludes revenue from (i) customers that churned after the end of the base period and (ii) new customers that entered into a customer agreement after the end of the base period.
