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 and twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP operating income is calculated as operating income excluding stock-based compensation expense.
  • For the three months ended December 31, 2014, non-GAAP net income is calculated as net income excluding stock-based compensation expense and for the three months ended December 31, 2013, non-GAAP net income is calculated as net income excluding (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) financial expenses resulting from the revaluation of warrants to purchase preferred shares.
  • For the twelve months ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP net income is calculated as net income excluding (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) 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 stock-based compensation expense allows for more meaningful comparisons of its period to period operating results. Stock-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. Each of these financial measures is an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating the Company’s own operating results over different periods of time.

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.
