Discussion of Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S., ("GAAP"), the Company provides Non-GAAP measures, including in this release. Pegasystems' management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and Non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, for making operating decisions, and for forecasting and planning for future periods. The Company's annual financial plan is prepared both on a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis, and both are approved by our board of directors. In addition and as a consequence of the importance of these measures in managing the business, the Company uses Non-GAAP measures and financial performance results in the evaluation process to establish management's compensation.
The Non-GAAP measures exclude amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation and relocation expenses associated with the move of our office headquarters. The Company believes that these Non-GAAP measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and our anticipated future results. These Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP to Non-GAAP measures is included in the financial schedules at the end of this release.
Certain statements contained in this press release may be construed as "forward-looking statements" as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including those relating to our future financial performance, including our revenue and net income. The words "anticipate," "project," "expect," "plan," "intend," "believe," "estimate," "should", "target," "forecast," "could," "preliminary," "guidance" and similar expressions, among others, identify forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date the statement was made. These statements are based on current expectations and assumptions and involve various risks and uncertainties, which could cause the Company's actual results to differ from those expressed in such forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among others, variation in demand for our products and services and the difficulty in predicting the completion of product acceptance and other factors affecting the timing of our license revenue recognition, the ongoing uncertainty and volatility in the global financial markets related to the European sovereign debt crisis, the ongoing consolidation in the financial services and healthcare markets, reliance on third party relationships, the potential loss of vendor specific objective evidence for our professional services, and management of the Company's growth. Further information regarding these and other factors which could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements contained in this press release is contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 and other recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release represent the Company's views as of February 20, 2013. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements and there are no assurances that the matters contained in such statements will be achieved. Although subsequent events may cause the Company's view to change, the Company does not undertake and specifically disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements whether as the result of new information, future events or otherwise. The statements should therefore not be relied upon as representing the Company's view as of any date subsequent to February 20, 2013.
