Our solid execution combined with our differentiated solutions continue to drive our success across all geographies and verticals. Increased network complexity and digital transformation are both acting as catalysts for Tufin in our large, under-penetrated market.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash expense, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash share-based compensation expense allows for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. This non-GAAP financial measure is an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating our operating results over different periods.

Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP operating profit (loss) differently or not at all, which reduces the usefulness of non-GAAP operating profit (loss) as a comparative measure. You should consider non-GAAP operating profit (loss) along with other financial performance measures, including operating profit, and our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Tufin 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 measure to evaluate its business.

  • We define non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit excluding share-based compensation expense.
  • We define non-GAAP operating profit (loss) as operating profit excluding share-based compensation expense.
  • We define non-GAAP net income as net income excluding share-based compensation expense.

Guidance for non-GAAP financial measures excludes, as applicable, share-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability and significance of, the amounts of share-based compensation expense that are excluded from the guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures for future periods is not available without unreasonable effort.
