Business Perspective

"Our software license revenue growth, up 25 percent year to date, is a sign that more global enterprises see Pega as a better way to achieve their strategic business goals," said Alan Trefler, Founder and CEO of Pegasystems. "This trend was also evident at PegaWORLD 2013 in Orlando in June, where we hosted a record number of clients, partners and prospects, with keynotes from global brands such as Cisco, AIG, and Accenture. Their success stories show that Pega is being used to drive rapid transformational change that boosts operational efficiency, better engages customers, and improves sales and marketing effectiveness. We also previewed our Pega 7 platform, which will change the game by making it faster and easier to create highly scalable BPM, Case Management and CRM solutions. Clients clearly continue to see an agility advantage in our unified platform, and Pega 7 takes this advantage to a whole new level."

"We were pleased to see improved results and growth across all geographic regions, particularly in Europe. Our global partner ecosystem drove more client implementations in the quarter, and the involvement of our partner organizations continues to steadily increase. During the quarter, we also saw our leadership ranking in CRM continue to improve with the world's largest independent industry analyst firm, citing Pega as the best overall provider for large scale call centers with complex processes. When you combine this with our #1 position in BPM and Case Management, it makes for a powerful combination," concluded Mr. Trefler.

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 and stock-based compensation. 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.
