    an increase in cash-based operating expenses of approximately 25%, excluding certain strategic initiatives;


    additional cash-based expenditures of approximately $40 million focused on incremental strategic initiatives, including DexCom’s partnership with Verily, DexCom’s data platform, and manufacturing capacity and commercial expansion; and


    continued increases in cash-based net income compared to fiscal year 2015.
