Radware® (NASDAQ: RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service level for applications in virtual, cloud and software defined data centers, today announced its consolidated financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2016.

“Radware’s third quarter of 2016 was characterized by an accelerated shift towards an increased proportion of service and subscription sales, pressuring revenues in the short term, but reflecting a desired strategic transition in our business model,” said Roy Zisapel, Radware President & CEO. “Through our unified infrastructure for delivery and security of applications, we have become a key enabler of the transition of applications to the cloud, clearly one of the most dominant technological trends today. We are also strongly positioned to benefit from the ever-evolving security threats. Events over the past few weeks highlighted the Internet of Things security risks, and we expect demand for our products to increase as new threat vectors continue to emerge. Radware enjoys a unique product portfolio with very strong technologies, which provides genuine competitive advantages in a very exciting market. I therefore have strong confidence in the Company’s growth prospects”.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Radware uses non-GAAP measures of gross profit, operating income, financial income, net income and earnings per share, which are adjustments from results based on GAAP to exclude stock-based compensation expenses, in accordance with ASC No. 718, amortization of intangible assets, litigation costs and exchange rate differences, net on balance sheet items included in finance income. Such exchange rate differences may vary from period to period due to changes in exchange rates driven by general market conditions or other circumstances outside of the normal course of Radware's operations. Management believes that exclusion of these charges allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent across past, present and future periods. Furthermore, Radware uses a measure called “total deferred revenues” which is defined as the sum of short and long term deferred revenues on the balance sheet and uncollected billed amounts that were offset against trade receivables, and are not presented on the balance sheet. Radware’s management believes the non-GAAP financial information provided in this release is useful to investors for the purpose of understanding and assessing Radware’s ongoing operations. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release, to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, is included with the financial information contained in this press release. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP information in evaluating and operating business internally and, as such, has determined that it is important to provide this information to investors.
