Prior to the start of the Quiet Period, the public can continue to rely on the expectations published in this 2014 Guidance section as being Manhattan Associates' current expectation on matters covered, unless Manhattan Associates publishes a notice stating otherwise.

GAAP VERSUS NON-GAAP PRESENTATION

The Company provides adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share in this press release as additional information regarding the Company's operating results. These measures are not in accordance with – or an alternative to – GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share measures used by other companies. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors' ability to understand and compare the Company's results and guidance, because the measures provide important supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of its business, as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results, and because the Company's competitors and peers typically publish similar non-GAAP measures. This release should be read in conjunction with the Company's Form 8-K earnings release filing for the quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude the impact of equity-based compensation and acquisition-related costs and the amortization thereof – all net of income tax effects. Reconciliations of the Company's GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP adjustments are included in the supplemental information attached to this release.
