Business Perspective

"We had an extraordinary finish to the year as clients turned to our Build for Change® technology to improve customer experience and drive operational efficiency," said Alan Trefler, Founder and CEO of Pegasystems. "Our uniquely unified BPM and CRM offering continued to resonate globally as we achieved record bookings in the fourth quarter from both new and existing clients who deepened and broadened their commitments to Pega. We gained important new name customers in the public sector, as well as two of the world's top five global insurance companies. In addition to the 18% license revenue growth for 2012, our deepening relationships with customers added over $45 million to our license backlog. We continue to see buyers using Pega to more effectively future-proof their existing systems and ERP investments, leveraging Pega to dramatically increase business agility as well as fuel rapid and continuous innovation."

"We anticipate our growth momentum to continue as we move into 2013, with forecasted annual revenues targeting $510 million and forecasted net income of approximately $33.2 million or $0.83 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, or $48.1 million or $1.20 per diluted share on a Non-GAAP basis. Similar to years past, we expect 2013 will be back-end loaded, and therefore revenue for the first half of 2013 is anticipated to be about 45% of annual guidance," concluded Mr. Trefler.

Mr. Trefler will host a conference call and live Webcast associated with this announcement at 6:00 p.m. EST on February 20, 2013. Dial-in information is as follows: 1 (877) 348-9349 (domestic) or 1 (678) 809-1046 (international).

Discussion of Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S., ("GAAP"), the Company provides Non-GAAP measures, including in this release. Pegasystems' management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and Non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, for making operating decisions, and for forecasting and planning for future periods. The Company's annual financial plan is prepared both on a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis, and both are approved by our board of directors. In addition and as a consequence of the importance of these measures in managing the business, the Company uses Non-GAAP measures and financial performance results in the evaluation process to establish management's compensation.

The Non-GAAP measures exclude amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation and relocation expenses associated with the move of our office headquarters. The Company believes that these Non-GAAP measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and our anticipated future results. These Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the Company's GAAP to Non-GAAP measures is included in the financial schedules at the end of this release.

FOOTNOTES FOR RECONCILIATON OF
SELECTED GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP MEASURES

(1) This presentation includes Non-GAAP measures. Our Non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. For a detailed explanation of the adjustments made to comparable GAAP measures, the reasons why management uses these measures, the usefulness of these measures and the material limitations on the usefulness of these measures see disclosure under Discussion of Non-GAAP Measures included earlier in this release and below. Our Non-GAAP financial measures reflect adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax effects:

Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the amortization expense of intangible assets from our Non-GAAP operating expenses and net earnings measures. Amortization of intangible assets is inconsistent in amount and frequency and is significantly affected by the timing and size of our acquisitions. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to our revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to our future period revenues as well. Amortization of intangible assets will recur in future periods.

Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded stock-based compensation expense from our Non-GAAP operating expenses and net earnings measures. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, and we believe such compensation contributed to the revenues earned during the periods presented and that it will contribute to the generation of future period revenues, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expense.

Headquarters relocation expenses: We completed the move of our office headquarters in the third quarter of 2012 and ceased use of the former space in the fourth quarter of 2012. As a result of this planned move, we accelerated the depreciation on certain leasehold improvements and furniture and fixtures to be abandoned from our prior headquarters. We recorded duplicate rent and rent-related expenses, incremental depreciation, equipment and moving expenses of $1.6 million and $8.5 million associated with the move of our office headquarters during the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012, respectively. We believe these incremental and duplicate expenses as a result of our moving our headquarters are not representative of our ongoing business.
