We benefitted from healthy demand across geographies, with particularly strong performance in EMEA and Asia Pacific due to the investments we have made in our sales infrastructure in these regions.” Mr. Kramer continued, “The completion of our initial public offering in November 2011 was an important milestone for our company. Imperva now has greater brand awareness and enhanced resources to execute its growth strategy and further extend its leadership position in the data security market. Looking ahead, we see numerous growth opportunities to expand our geographic reach and introduce additional products to enhance our offering, as well as target new markets. In addition, we intend to further develop our channel partnerships and internal sales efforts to drive adoption of our data security solutions worldwide.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Imperva reports all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement the Imperva unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, Imperva uses certain non-GAAP measures of financial performance. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the results of Imperva operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures used by Imperva include historical non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation from the Imperva unaudited consolidated statement of operations and give pro forma effect to the conversion of convertible preferred stock and issuance of common stock in connection with Imperva’s initial public offering as if both had happened at the beginning of each period presented.

For a description of these items, including the reasons why management adjusts for them, and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information” as well as the related tables that precede it. Imperva may consider whether other significant non-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded in calculating the non-GAAP financial measures it uses.

Imperva believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the performance of Imperva by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the company’s core business, operating results or future outlook. Imperva management uses, and believes that investors benefit from referring to, these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing operating results of Imperva, as well as when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons of the performance of Imperva to prior periods.

These forward-looking statements are subject to material risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ substantially from expectations. Investors should consider important risk factors, which include: the risk that demand for our data security solutions may not increase and may decrease; the risk that we may not timely introduce new products or versions of our products and that they may not be accepted by the market; the risk that competitors may be perceived by customers to be better positioned to help handle data security threats and protect their businesses from major risk; the risk that the growth of Imperva may be lower than anticipated; and other risks detailed under the caption “Risk Factors” in the company’s prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC on November 9, 2011 and the company’s other SEC filings.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to the reasons stated above, which are generally applicable to each of the items Imperva excludes from its non-GAAP financial measures, Imperva believes it is appropriate to exclude or give effect to certain items for the following reasons:

Stock-Based Compensation: When evaluating the performance of its consolidated results, Imperva does not consider stock-based compensation charges. Likewise, the Imperva management team excludes stock-based compensation expense from its operating plans. In contrast, the Imperva management team is held accountable for cash-based compensation and such amounts are included in its operating plans. Further, when considering the impact of equity award grants, Imperva places a greater emphasis on overall stockholder dilution rather than the accounting charges associated with such grants.

Imperva believes it is useful to provide a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes stock-based compensation in order to better understand the long-term performance of its business.

Conversion of Preferred and Shares from Initial Public Offering: Imperva believes it is useful to provide a non-GAAP financial measure that gives pro forma effect to the conversion of preferred stock and issuance of common stock in connection with Imperva’s initial public offering as if both had happened at the beginning of each period presented in order to have an alternative way to evaluate per share performance on a comparative basis.
