“We enter the new year with a strong balance sheet, a record backlog level, and an excellent competitive position coupled with a market environment that appears to be continuing to gradually improve,” said Mr. Marr. “Our guidance reflects our expectation that current business trends will continue in 2013,” continued Mr. Marr.
“Our guidance also includes costs of significant investments in our business that we believe will enhance our market leadership and improve long-term revenue and margin growth. These investments include expenses associated with the implementation of new electronic filing contracts, including our TexFile contract to provide a statewide e-filing system for Texas courts. The Texas Supreme Court recently issued an order mandating e-filing in civil cases, with a phase-in beginning January 2014, that we expect will significantly increase our transaction volumes and revenues from that contract. In addition, we plan to accelerate hiring in 2013 to ensure that we are well-positioned to deliver our current backlog and anticipated new business.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Tyler Technologies has provided in this press release financial measures that have not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are therefore considered non-GAAP financial measures. This information includes non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Tyler’s ongoing operational performance. Tyler believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures discussed above exclude share-based compensation expense and expenses associated with amortization of intangibles arising from business combinations. We use these measures and believe they are useful to investors because they provide additional insight in comparing results from period to period.
