Additionally, we experienced continued momentum in our land-and-expand strategy with more purchases from current customers. We enter the second half of our fiscal year having just announced a new all-flash platform and additional software offerings—these further enhance our differentiation and better enable our customers to transition to the enterprise cloud.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook
As we look ahead, we are providing the following outlook for the quarter ending October 31, 2017.  We expect:

  • Revenue in the range of $36 to $37 million;
  • Non-GAAP loss per share in the range of ($0.77) to ($0.81), using 31.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding.

All forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures contained in this section titled “Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook” exclude stock-based compensation expense, payroll tax expense related to stock-based activities, and, as applicable, other special items.  We have not reconciled guidance for non-GAAP loss per share to its most directly comparable GAAP measure because the items that have been excluded are uncertain and cannot be reasonably predicted.  Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures and other key performance measures:  non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, pro forma non-GAAP net loss per share, free cash flow, and free cash flow as a percentage of revenue.  In computing these non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude the effects of certain items such as stock-based compensation expense, IPO-related expenses not netted against IPO proceeds, and adjustment to Series E, E-1, and F Convertible Preferred Stock related to our IPO.  Free cash flow is a performance measure that our management believes provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after necessary capital expenditures, and we define free cash flow as net cash used in operating activities less purchases of property and equipment.  The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.  We use these non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures for financial and operational decision-making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons.  Our management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses and expenditures such as stock-based compensation expense that may not be indicative of our ongoing core business operating results.  We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when analyzing historical performance and liquidity, and planning, forecasting, and analyzing future periods.  However, these non-GAAP financial and key performance measures have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.  Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, pro forma non-GAAP net loss per share, and free cash flow are not substitutes for gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, loss from operations, operating margin, net loss or net loss attributable to common stockholders, net loss per share or net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, net loss per share or net loss per share attributable to common stockholders, or net cash used in operating activities, respectively.  In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures as tools for comparison.  We urge you to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures and key performance measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures included below in the tables captioned “Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Profit Measures,” and “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Cash Used In Operating Activities to Non-GAAP Free Cash Flow,” and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
