Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Perficient uses non-GAAP measures, such as EBITDA, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude certain expenses. Perficient believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important representations of a company’s financial performance and uses such non- GAAP information internally to evaluate and manage its operations. Management has provided information regarding EBITDA to assist investors in analyzing Perficient’s financial position and results of operations. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance the user’s overall understanding of our financial performance, but are not intended to be regarded as an alternative to or more meaningful than GAAP measures. The non-GAAP measures presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation of EBITDA to operating income (loss) and net income (loss) is included in the unaudited consolidated statements of operations.
