In particular, the following factors, among others, could cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements: the market for on-demand services may develop more slowly than expected; quarterly operating results may fluctuate more than expected; unexpected disruptions of service at the Company's data centre may occur; a security breach may impact operations; risks associated with material defects or errors in the Company's software or the effect of undetected computer viruses could impact operations; the risk of technological developments and innovations by others; our ability to successfully integrate and manage OpenAir, Inc.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company's stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including net loss, weighted average shares outstanding, and net loss per share. Non-GAAP net loss also excludes expenses related to the amortisation of acquisition-related intangible assets. Non-GAAP net loss excludes these expenses as they are non-cash items, can be difficult to predict, and are often excluded by other companies. Additionally, non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding, the denominator for the non-GAAP net loss per share calculation for the periods during 2007, assumes that the conversion of preferred stock and the issuance of common stock as part of the Company's Initial Public Offering had occurred at the beginning of the applicable period. The Company considers these events to be non-routine, and believes these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors.
The Company considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operational performance of the Company and are used by the Company's management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the financial performance of a company. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the Company's operating results. The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
