Non-GAAP net profit is defined as GAAP net profit after including deferred revenues related to the fair value adjustment resulting from purchase accounting and excluding stock based compensation expenses, amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, regulatory matters, acquisition related expenses and compensation expenses related to the acquisitions.These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP results and a full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results are provided in the accompanying Tables 2 and 3. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes that they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of the Company's operating performance. "Our continued growth is being driven by strong market fundamentals, namely the continued dramatic growth in data over mobile and fixed line networks," commented Rami Hadar, Allot Communications' President and Chief Executive Officer. "The Allot Service Gateway offers service providers superior performance along with the broadest range of value-added services available on the market today, and services, particularly our video suite, have been a significant differentiator for our customers.
