Additional highlights include:

  • On October 21, 2015, SolarWinds announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Silver Lake Partners and Thoma Bravo, LLC in a transaction valued at approximately $4.5 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, SolarWinds stockholders will receive $60.10 in cash for each share of SolarWinds common stock. The transaction is expected to be completed in the first calendar quarter of 2016, subject to receipt of stockholder approval, regulatory approvals as well as satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

  • SolarWinds introduced a number of new product enhancements that added depth and breadth across its portfolio of Network and Systems Management and Cloud products and also announced exciting new product releases within its MSP business:

    • SolarWinds N-able announced the release of MSP Anywhere, which adds a new cloud-based remote control access and support platform that provides managed service providers (MSPs) with instant and on-demand remote support and access to Windows® PCs and Mac®, as well as iOS® and Android®-based mobile devices from virtually any device. MSP Anywhere was acquired as part of the company's recent purchase of BeAnywhere®.

    • SolarWinds N-able also introduced MSP Manager, which adds a cloud-based IT service management platform that provides small to medium-sized MSPs to run a more efficient, effective and profitable IT service organization. MSP Manager was acquired as part of the company's recent purchase of Capzure®.

    • SolarWinds released Database Performance Analyzer 10.0, extending support to MySQL®. With the addition of MySQL, SolarWinds® DPA now supports the top three database platforms -- Microsoft® SQL Server®, Oracle® and MySQL -- plus more, thereby providing database administrators (DBAs), application developers and operations teams with enterprise-grade database performance tuning, metric visibility and resource correlation based on a unique wait-time-analytics and resource correlation approach to help improve the performance of corporate, cloud and SaaS applications based on any of these databases from within a single management dashboard.

    • SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor, which provides IT with the necessary insight into storage resources and the potential performance impact on virtual machines and applications that are dependent on storage elements, added support for additional EMC®, Hitachi®, HP® and IBM® storage array families and now provides monitoring capabilities for hierarchical storage pools.

    • SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, a powerful security information and event management (SIEM) product designed for resource-constrained IT organizations, introduced the addition of a threat intelligence feed to help IT security pros identify known, proven threats and limit the impact of cyber-attacks.

    • SolarWinds' Librato® real-time cloud monitoring solution added a new turnkey integration for Docker, providing Librato's developer and devops users with the ability to monitor and visualize application performance inside of Docker containers. Docker joins Librato's list of more than 90 collection agents and language bindings, including Amazon CloudWatch™ and Heroku®. Other new turnkey integrations provide monitoring for NGINX® web servers and Redis™ servers as well as performance insight into Ruby on Rails® and Rack application stacks.

  • SolarWinds IT management products received recognition from Redmond magazine's 2015 Reader's Choice Awards in 12 different categories, including network, systems and application, database, security, and remote monitoring management. Most notably, SolarWinds Network Management Software, Network Performance Monitor, Server & Application Monitor, and NetFlow Traffic Analyzer were distinguished with the Platinum award. In addition, SolarWinds N-able ranked among the world's Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), according to Penton's fifth-annual Talkin' Cloud® 100 report.

  • In support of its mission to champion the IT Pro, SolarWinds established the third Tuesday of every September, beginning September 15, 2015, as IT Professionals Day to honor all IT professionals as the unsung heroes of modern business and hosted its fourth edition of thwackCamp on July 15-16, 2015 to provide educational and interactive content to help IT pros answer the age-old question, "What will you solve next?"

The financial results included in this press release are preliminary and pending final review by the company and its external auditors. Financial results will not be final until SolarWinds files its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period. Information about SolarWinds' use of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided below under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

In light of the pending acquisition by Silver Lake Partners and Thoma Bravo, the Company will not be holding an earnings conference call to discuss its financial results. Additionally, SolarWinds is withdrawing previously provided financial guidance for the full year 2015.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release, and the documents to which the Company refers you in this communication, contains not only historical information, but also forward-looking statements made pursuant to the safe-harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements represent the Company's expectations or beliefs concerning future events, including the timing of the transaction and other information relating to the transaction. Forward-looking statements include information concerning possible or assumed future results of operations of the Company, the expected completion and timing of the transaction and other information relating to the transaction. Without limiting the foregoing, the words "believes," "anticipates," "plans," "expects," "intends," "forecasts," "should," "estimates," "contemplate," "future," "goal," "potential," "predict," "project," "projection," "may," "will," "could," "should," "would," "assuming" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. You should read statements that contain these words carefully. They discuss the Company's future expectations or state other forward-looking information and may involve known and unknown risks over which the Company has no control. Those risks include, (i) the risk that the transaction may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, which may adversely affect the Company's business and the price of the common stock of the Company, (ii) the failure to satisfy of the conditions to the consummation of the transaction, including the adoption of the merger agreement by the stockholders of the Company and the receipt of regulatory approvals from various domestic and foreign governmental entities (including any conditions, limitations or restrictions placed on these approvals) and the risk that one or more governmental entities may deny approval, (iii) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement, (iv) the risk that the definitive merger agreement may be terminated in circumstances that require the Company to pay a $159 million termination fee and/or reimburse the buyers' expenses; (v) risks regarding the failure to obtain the necessary financing to complete the merger, (vi) the effect of the announcement or pendency of the transaction on the Company's business relationships, operating results and business generally, (vii) risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations, (viii) risks related to diverting management's attention from the Company's ongoing business operations, and (ix) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against us related to the merger agreement or the transaction. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this communication or the date of any document incorporated by reference in this document. Further risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those matters expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements are described in the Company's SEC reports, including but not limited to the risks described in the Company's Annual Report on Forms 10-K for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2015 and June 30, 2015 and the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2015 that SolarWinds anticipates filing on or before November 9, 2015. All information provided in this release is as of the date hereof and SolarWinds undertakes no duty to update this information except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures. The tables below set forth a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to a GAAP financial measure that we consider to be most comparable. SolarWinds believes that each of these non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of its core business operations. SolarWinds' management and Board of Directors use certain of these non-GAAP measures to assess operational performance, allocate resources, prepare annual budgets, and determine employee incentive compensation. Accordingly, these measures may provide helpful insight to investors into the motivation and decision-making of management in operating the business. SolarWinds' management and Board of Directors analyzes revenue growth on a constant currency basis in order to provide a comparable framework for assessing how the business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

SolarWinds also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are used by investors and security analysts to (a) compare and evaluate its performance from period to period and (b) compare its performance to those of its competitors. These non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their financing and accounting methods, the book value of their assets, their capital structures and the method by which their assets were acquired.

There are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation between companies. Certain items that are excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures can have a material impact on operating and net income.

As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the most comparable GAAP measures. SolarWinds' management and Board of Directors compensate for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reviewing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures that are set forth in the tables below.

(1) Amortization of Intangible Assets. We provide non-GAAP information which excludes expenses for the amortization of intangible assets which primarily relate to purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions. We believe that eliminating this expense from our non-GAAP measures is useful to investors, because the amortization of intangible assets can be inconsistent in amount and frequency and is significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of our acquisition transactions, which also vary in frequency from period to period. Accordingly, we analyze the performance of our operations in each period without regard to such expenses.

(2) Stock-Based Compensation Expense and Related Employer-Paid Payroll Taxes. We provide non-GAAP information which excludes expenses for stock-based compensation and related employer-paid payroll taxes. We believe the exclusion of these items allows for financial results that are more indicative of our continuing operations. We believe that the exclusion of stock-based compensation expense provides for a better comparison of our operating results to prior periods and to our peer companies as the calculations of stock-based compensation vary from period to period and company to company due to different valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types. Employer-paid payroll taxes on stock-based compensation is dependent on our stock price and the timing of the taxable events related to the equity awards, over which our management has little control, and does not correlate to the core operation of our business. Because of these unique characteristics of stock-based compensation and the related employer-paid payroll taxes, management excludes these expenses when analyzing the organization's business performance.

(3) Acquisition Related Adjustments. We exclude certain expense items resulting from acquisitions including the following, when applicable: (i) amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions (see Note 1 for further discussion); (ii) legal, accounting and advisory fees to the extent associated with acquisitions; (iii) changes in fair value of contingent consideration; (iv) costs related to due diligence and integrating the acquired businesses; (v) deferred compensation expense related to acquisitions; and (vi) restructuring costs, including adjustments related to changes in estimates, related to acquisitions. We consider these adjustments, to some extent, to be unpredictable and dependent on a significant number of factors that are outside of our control. Furthermore, acquisitions result in non-continuing operating expenses, which would not otherwise have been incurred by us in the normal course of our organic business operations, with respect to each acquisition. We believe that providing non-GAAP information for acquisition related expense items in addition to the corresponding GAAP information allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our continuing operations, and also facilitates comparisons to our historical results and results of less acquisitive peer companies, both with and without such adjustments.

(4) Restructuring Charges. We provide non-GAAP information that excludes restructuring charges such as severance, relocation and benefits and the estimated costs of exiting and terminating facility lease commitments, including accelerated depreciation on leasehold improvements and fixed assets, as they relate to our corporate restructuring and exit activities. These restructuring charges are inconsistent in amount and are significantly impacted by the timing and nature of these events. Therefore, although we may incur these types of expenses in the future, we believe that eliminating these charges for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures facilitates a more meaningful evaluation of our current operating performance and comparisons to our past operating performance.

(5) Income Tax Effect of Non-GAAP Exclusions. We believe providing financial information with and without the income tax effect of excluding items related to our non-GAAP financial measures provide our management and users of the financial statements with better clarity regarding the ongoing performance and future liquidity of our business.

(6) Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share Item. We provide non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The non-GAAP diluted earnings per share amount was calculated based on our non-GAAP net income and the shares used in the computation of GAAP diluted earnings per share.
