Non-GAAP Financial Measures
CyberArk believes that the use of non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income is helpful to our investors. These financial measures are not measures of the Company’s financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to operating income or net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP.

  • For the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, non-GAAP operating income is calculated as operating income excluding secondary offering related expenses, share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, and acquisition related expenses. For the three months and year ended December 31, 2014, non-GAAP operating income is calculated as operating income excluding share-based compensation expense.
  • For the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, non-GAAP net income is calculated as net income excluding secondary offering related expenses, share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, acquisition related expenses, and the tax effects related to the non-GAAP adjustments and for the three months and year ended December 31, 2014, non-GAAP net income is calculated as net income excluding share-based compensation expense and financial expenses resulting from the revaluation of warrants to purchase preferred shares.

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash expense, the Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude share-based compensation, secondary offering related expenses, acquisition related expenses, and amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions allows for more meaningful comparisons of its period to period operating results. Share-based compensation expense has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in the Company’s business and an important part of the compensation provided to its employees. In addition, the Company believes that excluding financial expenses with respect to revaluation of warrants to purchase preferred shares allows for more meaningful comparison between its net income from period to period, especially since upon the closing of the IPO, the warrants were exercised for ordinary shares, and as a result, are no longer evaluated at each balance sheet date. The Company believes that expenses related to its secondary offerings and acquisitions as well as amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions do not reflect the performance of its core business and would impact period-to-period comparability.

Non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company’s industry, as other companies in the industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures as they exclude expenses that may have a material impact on the Company’s reported financial results. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. CyberArk urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measures to evaluate its business.
