Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, QlikTech uses measures of non-GAAP income (loss) from operations, non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per basic and diluted common share and constant currency. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP financial measure is presented in the financial tables below under the headings "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to GAAP" and "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Revenue to GAAP Revenue." QlikTech believes that the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release can assist investors in understanding and assessing QlikTech's on-going core operations and prospects for the future and provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing QlikTech's financial results with other companies in QlikTech's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. In addition, QlikTech believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency into the indicators used by management as a basis for its internal budgeting and operational decision making.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations is determined by taking GAAP loss from operations and adding back stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock transactions, and amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP net income (loss) is determined by taking GAAP loss before benefit for income taxes and adding back stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock transactions, and amortization of intangible assets and the result is tax affected at an estimated long-term effective tax rate of 30%. QlikTech believes these adjustments provide useful information to both management and investors due to the following factors:

  • Stock-based compensation. Although stock-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation of QlikTech's employees and executives, determining the fair value of the stock-based instruments involves a high degree of judgment and estimation and the expense recorded may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the future exercise or termination of the related stock-based awards. Furthermore, unlike cash compensation, the value of stock-based compensation is determined using a complex formula that incorporates factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond QlikTech's control. Management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation in order to better understand the long-term performance of QlikTech's core business and to facilitate comparison of its results to those of peer companies.
  • Employer payroll taxes on stock transactions. The amount of employer payroll taxes on stock transactions is dependent on QlikTech's stock price and other factors that are beyond QlikTech's control and do not correlate to the operation of its business.
  • Amortization of intangible assets. A portion of the purchase price of QlikTech's acquisitions is generally allocated to intangible assets, such as intellectual property, and is subject to amortization. However, QlikTech does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle. Additionally, the amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and the term of its related amortization can vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition. Therefore, management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that adjust for the amortization of intangible assets provides investors and others with a consistent basis for comparison across accounting periods.

To determine the revenue growth rates on a constant currency basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, revenue from entities reporting in foreign currencies was translated into U.S. dollars using the comparable prior year period's foreign currency exchange rates.

This press release includes forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures under the heading "Business Outlook". These non-GAAP financial measures were determined by excluding stock-based compensation expense, employer payroll taxes on stock transactions, and amortization of intangible assets and assuming an estimated long-term effective tax rate of 30%. QlikTech's expectations of its estimated long-term effective tax rate have been revised for 2013 from 32% to 30% as a result of reductions in the corporate tax rates in several foreign jurisdictions where it operates. We are unable to reconcile this non-GAAP guidance to GAAP because it is difficult to predict the future impact of these adjustments. In addition, these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures assume that foreign currency exchange rates for the third quarter of 2013 and full year 2013 will approximate current foreign currency exchange rates.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant elements that are required by GAAP to be recorded in QlikTech's financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management of QlikTech presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. As previously mentioned, a reconciliation of our historic non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided below.
