NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The accompanying press release dated April 30, 2007 contains non-GAAP financial measures. Table C reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures contained in the press release to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP total cost of revenue, non-GAAP gross profit and related gross profit as a percentage of revenue, non-GAAP profit (loss) from operations and related non-GAAP profit (loss) as a percentage of revenue, non-GAAP net profit (loss) and basic and diluted non-GAAP net profit (loss) per share.

Chordiant continues to provide all information required in accordance with GAAP and does not suggest or believe non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Chordiant believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its operating results primarily because they exclude amounts the Company does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of certain functions, certain geographies or certain members of senior management.

The operating budgets of functional managers do not include share-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs and certain other excluded items that may impact their functions profitability, and accordingly, we exclude these amounts from our measures of functional performance. We also exclude these amounts from our internal planning and forecasting process.

We believe that our non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate the comparison of results for current periods and guidance for future periods with results for past periods. We exclude the following items from our non-GAAP financial measures:

Stock-based compensation expense. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expenses, which consist of expenses for stock options and restricted stock. Additionally, recent comparative periods also include stock-based compensation for certain stock options that were subject to variable accounting. Under variable accounting, movements in the market value of our stock caused significant unpredictable charges or benefits from period to period. The operating budgets of functional or geographic managers do not include share-based compensation expenses impacting their functions income (loss) and, accordingly, we exclude share-based compensation expenses from our measures of functional or geographic performance. While share-based compensation is a significant expense affecting our results of operations, management excludes share-based compensation from our budget and planning process. We exclude share-based compensation expenses from our non-GAAP financial measures for these reasons and the other reasons stated above. We compute weighted average dilutive shares using the method required by SFAS 123(R) for both GAAP and non-GAAP diluted net income per share.

Amortization of purchased intangible assets. In accordance with GAAP, amortization of purchased intangible assets in cost of revenue includes amortization of software and other technology assets related to acquisitions and acquisition-related charges in operating expenses includes amortization of other purchased intangible assets such as customer lists and covenants not to compete. Acquisition activities are managed on a corporate-wide basis and the operating budgets of functional or geographic managers do not include acquisition-related costs impacting their functions income (loss). We exclude these amounts from our measures of segment performance and from our budget and planning process. We exclude amortization of intangible assets from our non-GAAP financial measures for these reasons and the other reasons stated above.

Restructuring expense and infrequent charges. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude restructuring expense and infrequent charges. Restructuring expense consists of expenses for idle facilities and expenses for severance charges related to reductions in our workforce. Infrequent charges primarily relate to severance expense associated with executive management. The operating budgets of functional or geographic managers do not include restructuring expenses and infrequent charges or the financial impact to their functions or geographies income (loss). Accordingly, we exclude restructuring expenses and infrequent charges from measures of functional or geographic performance. We also exclude these expenses in non-GAAP financial measures for these reasons and the other reasons stated.

Chordiant refers to these non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating and measuring the performance of our ongoing operations and for planning and forecasting in future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate our internal comparisons to historical operating results. Historically, we have reported similar non-GAAP financial measures and believe that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in our financial reporting. We compute non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and year to year.

Chordiant believes that non-GAAP measures have significant limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Chordiant's financial results as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate Chordiant's financial results in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Because of these limitations, Chordiant qualifies the use of non-GAAP financial information in a statement when non-GAAP information is presented. In addition, the exclusion of the charges and expenses indicated above from the non-GAAP financial measures presented does not indicate an expectation by Chordiant management that similar charges and expenses will not be incurred in subsequent periods.

The reconciliations of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures in Table D and Table E include all information reasonably available to Chordiant at the date of this press release. These tables include adjustments that we can reasonably predict. Events that could cause the reconciliation to change include, but are not limited to, strategic investments including acquisitions and goodwill and other asset impairment.
