ActivIdentity is presenting non-GAAP numbers in this press release as it believes the one-time charges for non-recurring items and the non-cash charges distort the period to period results and that investors will benefit from the comparison of information from period to period without these items. Please refer to the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation table for further detail. Certain financial results are subject to the application of accounting estimates, especially with regards to fair value accounting. Management has used what it believes to be appropriate valuation techniques to assess the fair value of impaired investments and the fair value of undelivered elements in multi-element software arrangements.
