QlikTech's expectations of total revenue, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP income (loss) per diluted common share for the first quarter and full year 2013 assume that foreign currency exchange rates for the first quarter and full year 2013 will approximate current exchange rates.
QlikTech currently intends to publish, in each quarterly earnings release, certain expectations with respect to future financial performance. Those statements, including the guidance provided above, are forward looking, and actual results may differ materially.

A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the closest GAAP financial measure, is presented in the financial tables below under the headings “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to GAAP” and “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Revenue to GAAP Revenue.” QlikTech believes that the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release can assist investors in understanding and assessing QlikTech’s on-going core operations and prospects for the future and provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing QlikTech’s financial results with other companies in QlikTech’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. In addition, QlikTech believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency into the indicators used by management as a basis for its internal budgeting and operational decision making.
