This press release contains “forward-looking statements,” including statements regarding our revenue expectations for the third quarter, our expectation that we will report a profit on a non-GAAP basis, and our expectation that we will deliver strong third quarter results. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on assumptions that may prove to be incorrect, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ include sales execution risks for the remainder of the quarter and any material adjustments that may arise in connection with the completion of the company's customary quarterly close and review procedures.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release references profit on a non-GAAP basis. Profit on a non-GAAP basis does not have any standardized meaning and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
