Financial Outlook

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company expects revenues in the range of $64.0 million to $65.0 million, representing 20% to 22% year-over-year growth. The Company anticipates third quarter 2018 non-GAAP operating income in the range of breakeven to $1.0 million and non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share in the range of ($0.02) to non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.01, based on a tax provision of $500,000 to $700,000 and 29.3 million basic and 32.6 million diluted shares outstanding. Expectations of non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income (loss) per basic and diluted share exclude stock-based compensation expense and payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation.

For the full year 2018, the Company now expects revenues in the range of $265.0 million to $268.5 million, representing 23% to 25% year-over-year growth. The Company now anticipates full year 2018 non-GAAP operating income of $2.5 million to $4.5 million and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in the range of $0.00 to $0.05. This is based on a tax provision of $2.7 million to $3.2 million and 32.4 million diluted shares outstanding. Expectations of non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude stock-based compensation expense and payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation.

Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures

Varonis believes that the use of non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (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 and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, non-GAAP operating loss is calculated as operating loss excluding (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, non-GAAP net loss is calculated as net loss excluding (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation.

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 excludes payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation expense because, without excluding these tax expenses, investors would not see the full effect that excluding stock-based compensation expense had on our operating results. These expenses are tied to the exercise or vesting of underlying equity awards and the price of our common stock at the time of vesting or exercise, which factors may vary from period to period independent of the operating performance of our business. Similar to stock-based compensation expense, the Company believes that excluding this payroll tax expense provides investors and management with greater visibility to the underlying performance of our business operations and facilitates comparison with other periods as well as the results of other companies.

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 income (loss) or net income (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 and payroll tax expense related to stock-based compensation have been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, significant recurring expenses 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.
