Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Actuate management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various performance measures. In addition to our GAAP results, we also consider adjusted net income, which we refer to as non-GAAP net income. We further consider various components of non-GAAP net income such as non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expense. Non-GAAP net income is generally based on the revenues of our product, maintenance and services business operations and the costs of those operations, such as cost of revenue, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses, that management considers in evaluating our ongoing core operating performance. Non-GAAP net income consists of net income excluding amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, equity plan-related compensation expenses and other charges and gains which management does not consider reflective of our core operating business. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased technology, trade names, customer relationships, employment agreements and other intangible assets issued in connection with acquisitions. Restructuring charges consist of severance and benefits, excess facilities and asset-related charges and include strategic reallocations or reductions of personnel resources. Equity plan-related compensation expenses represent the fair value of all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, as required under SFAS No. 123 (revised 2004), "Share-Based Payment" (SFAS 123R). For purposes of comparability across other periods and against other companies in our industry, non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the Company would accrue using a normalized effective tax rate applied to the non-GAAP results.
Non-GAAP net income is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. Moreover, it should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of our liquidity. We present non-GAAP net income because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our performance.
Management excludes from non-GAAP net income certain recurring items to facilitate its review of the comparability of the Company's core operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such items are not related to the Company's ongoing core operating performance as viewed by management. Management uses this view of its operating performance for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocations of resources. Additionally, when evaluating potential acquisitions, management excludes the items described above from its consideration of target performance and valuation.
The Company believes that, in general, these items possess one or more of the following characteristics: their magnitude and timing is largely outside of the Company's control; they are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course; they are unusual and the Company does not expect them to occur in the ordinary course of business; or they are non-operational, or non-cash expenses involving stock option grants.
The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is warranted for several reasons:
1) Such non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional analytical tool for understanding the Company's financial performance by excluding the impact of items that may obscure trends in the core operating performance of the business;
2) Since the Company has historically reported non-GAAP results to the investment community, the Company believes the inclusion of non-GAAP numbers provides consistency and enhances investors' ability to compare the Company's performance across financial reporting periods;
3) These non-GAAP financial measures are employed by the Company's management in its own evaluation of performance and are utilized in financial and operational decision making processes, such as budget planning and forecasting;
4) These non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons to the operating results of other companies in our industry, which use similar financial measures to supplement their GAAP results, thus enhancing the perspective of investors who wish to utilize such comparisons in their analysis of the Company's performance.
Set forth below are additional reasons why specific items are excluded from the Company's non-GAAP financial measures:
a) Amortization charges for purchased technology and other intangible assets are excluded because they are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of the Company's acquisition transactions. We analyze and measure our operating results without these charges when evaluating our core performance. Generally, the impact of these charges to the Company's net income tends to diminish over time following an acquisition.
b) While stock-based compensation calculated in accordance with SFAS 123R constitutes an ongoing and recurring expense of the Company, it is not an expense that typically requires or will require cash settlement by the Company. We therefore exclude these charges for purposes of evaluating our core performance as well as with respect to evaluating any potential acquisition.
c) Restructuring charges are primarily related to severance costs and/or the disposition of excess facilities driven by modifications of business strategy. These costs are excluded because they are inherently variable in size, and are not specifically included in the Company's annual operating plan and related budget due to the rapidly changing facts and circumstances typically associated with such modifications of business strategy. Restructuring charges also include expenses related to idle facilities. Operating expenses related to idle facilities are excluded because the charges are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course. Because these costs are unrelated to the Company’s core operations, they are not included in the Company’s annual operating plan;
d) Income tax expense is adjusted by the amount of additional expense or benefit that we would accrue if we used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results in the calculation of our tax liability, taking into consideration the Company's long-term tax structure. Starting in the quarter ended March 31, 2009, the Company began to use a normalized effective tax rate of 20%. In 2008 a rate of 30% was used. This item is excluded because the rate remains subject to change based on several factors, including variations over time in the geographic business mix and statutory tax rates.
In the future, the Company expects to continue reporting non-GAAP financial measures excluding items described above and the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above. Accordingly, exclusion of these and other similar items in our non-GAAP presentation should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
As stated above, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. However, non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results. In the future, the Company expects to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above and expects to continue reporting non-GAAP financial measures excluding such items. Some of the limitations in relying on non-GAAP financial measures are:
Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, a detailed reconciliation between the Company's GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in this press release and is available in the investor relations section of the Company's web site at http://www.actuate.com/investor. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information strictly as a supplement to the GAAP results that are contained in this press release and in the Company's SEC filings.

(a) This table contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Such measures are intended to serve as a supplement to the GAAP results presented elsewhere in this press release, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for such GAAP results. See the section entitled Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in this press release for additional information regarding: the manner in which management uses these non-GAAP financial measures; the economic substance behind management's decision to use such measures; the material limitations associated with use of these non-GAAP financial measures as compared to the use of the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures; the manner in which management compensates for these limitations when using these non-GAAP financial measures; and the substantive reasons why management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors.
(b) Amortization of purchased technology acquired in the Performancesoft acquisition transaction in January of fiscal year 2006. Purchased technology is amortized over the estimated life of the underlying asset.
(c) Amortization of other intangibles includes identifiable intangible assets including trade names, employment agreements and customer relationships acquired through various acquisition transactions. Other identified intangibles are amortized over the estimated remaining life of the underlying intangibles.
(d) Actuate accounts for stock compensation expense under the fair value method. Actuate adopted the modified prospective transition method as defined under FASB 123R, “Share-Based Payment” (“SFAS 123(R)”). Actuate is presenting this non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share financial measure which excludes stock based compensation expense for all periods presented. For the three months ended March 31, 2009, stock-based expense included approximately (in thousands): $280, $192, $328, and $805, related to cost of services revenues, sales and marketing expense, research and development expense and general and administrative expense, respectively.

In fiscal 2009 the Company is using a normalized effective tax rate of 20%. In fiscal 2008, the Company used a normalized effective rate of 30%. This item is excluded because the rate remains subject to change based on several factors, including variations over time in the geographic business mix and statutory tax rates.
