A replay of this conference call will be available through February 24, 2015 at 877-870-5176 (domestic) or 858-384-5517 (international). The replay passcode is 6258283.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Varonis believes that the use of non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss is helpful to our investors. These measures, which the Company refers to as our non-GAAP financial measures, are not prepared in accordance with GAAP.

For the three months and year ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP operating loss is calculated as operating loss excluding stock-based compensation expense.

For the three months and year ended December 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP net loss is calculated as net loss excluding (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) financial expenses resulting from the revaluation of warrants to purchase convertible preferred stock.

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company's non-cash expense, the Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expense allow for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. In addition, the Company believes that excluding financial expenses with respect to revaluation of warrants to purchase convertible preferred stock allows for more meaningful comparison between our net loss from period to period, especially since upon the closing of the IPO, the warrants automatically converted into warrants to purchase our common stock, and as a result, are no longer evaluated at each balance sheet date. Each of our non-GAAP financial measures is an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own operating results over different periods of time. The non-GAAP financial data are not measures of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to operating loss or net loss or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. Further, stock-based compensation expense has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in our business and an important part of the compensation provided to our employees. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Varonis urges investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measures to evaluate our business.
