Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
GTY has provided in this release the following non-GAAP financial measure: non-GAAP revenue.
GTY’s management uses non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to the corresponding GAAP measures, in evaluating GTY’s ongoing operational performance and trends. However, it is important to note that particular items GTY excludes from, or includes in, its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the items excluded from, or included in, similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies in the same industry. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the following reconciliation of non-GAAP revenue to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, revenue.
Non-GAAP Revenue. Non-GAAP revenue is defined as GAAP revenue adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting resulting from its business combination which reduced its acquired contract liabilities to fair value. The Company believes that presenting non-GAAP revenue is useful to investors as it eliminates the impact of the purchase accounting adjustments to revenues to allow for a direct comparison between current and future periods.
