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 loss and non-GAAP basic and diluted loss per share. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation from the Imperva unaudited condensed 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.
