Notes to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations:

Guidance Software reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. To supplement this information, we present in this release total non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, operating expenses, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), as well as non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. Total non-GAAP revenue consists of GAAP revenue as reported and adds back the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment booked for GAAP purposes. Non-GAAP gross profit consists of GAAP gross profit as reported and adds back the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment and stock-based compensation expense booked for GAAP purposes. Non-GAAP operating income (loss) consists of GAAP operating income (loss) as reported and adds back the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment booked for GAAP purposes and excludes amortization of intangibles, acquisition-related expenses, share-based compensation expense, and a one-time state sales tax charge. Non-GAAP net income (loss) consists of GAAP operating income (loss) as reported and adds back the acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment booked for GAAP purposes and excludes amortization of intangibles, acquisition-related expenses, share-based compensation expense, and a one-time state sales tax charge.

Non-GAAP net income (loss) also excludes the tax provision.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures for internal managerial purposes, when publicly providing our business outlook, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. We describe limitations specific to each non-GAAP financial measure below. Management generally compensates for limitations in the use of non-GAAP financial measures by relying on comparable GAAP financial measures and providing investors with a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Accordingly, management and the Board of Directors do not consider these excluded costs for purposes of evaluating the performance of the business, and they exclude such costs when evaluating the performance of the Company, its business units and its management teams and when making decisions to allocate resources among the Company's business units.

Acquisition-related Deferred Revenue. Acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustment reflects the fair value adjustment to deferred revenues acquired in business combinations. The fair value of deferred revenue represents an amount equivalent to the estimated cost plus an appropriate profit margin, to perform services related to the acquiree's software and product support, which assumes a legal obligation to do so, based on the deferred revenue balances as of the acquisition date. Guidance Software adds back this deferred revenue for its non-GAAP financial measures because it believes the inclusion of this amount directly correlates to the underlying performance of Guidance Software operations and facilitates comparisons of pre-merger results of legacy Guidance Software and CaseCentral to that of the Company's post-merger results.

Acquisition-related Expenses. Acquisition-related expenses are fees and expenses, including legal, investment banking and accounting fees and other integration-related expenses, incurred in connection with announced transactions. Guidance Software excludes acquisition-related expenses from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Guidance Software business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods.

Amortization of Intangibles. Amortization of intangibles is a non-cash expense arising from the acquisition of intangible assets in connection with acquisitions. Guidance Software excludes acquisition-related amortization expense from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Guidance Software business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions and full amortization of previously acquired intangible assets. Investors should note that the use of these intangible assets contributed to revenue in the periods presented and will contribute to future revenue generation and the related amortization expense will recur in future periods.

Stock-based Compensation Expense. Stock-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense arising from the grant of stock awards to employees. Guidance Software excludes stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Guidance Software business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of the timing of grants of new stock-based awards, including grants in connection with acquisitions. Investors should note that stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to employees whose efforts contributed to the operating results in the periods presented and are expected to contribute to operating results in future periods and such expense will recur in future periods.

State Sales Tax One-time Charge. The sales tax one-time charge is expenses accrued for sales taxes that may be due to a taxing authority. Guidance Software excludes the sales tax charge from non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because it believes the amount of the expense in the specific period it occurred is a one-time charge and does not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Guidance Software’s business operations.

Forward Looking Statements:

This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements in this release involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. There can be no assurance that demand for the Guidance Software's products will continue at current or greater levels, or that the Company will continue to grow revenues, or be profitable. There are also risks that the Guidance Software's pursuit of providing network security and eDiscovery technology might not be successful, or that if successful, it will not materially enhance the Guidance Software's financial performance; that the Company could fail to retain key employees; that changes in customer requirements and other general economic and political uncertainties could impact the Guidance Software's relationship with its customers; and that delays in product development, competitive pressures or technical difficulties could impact timely delivery of next-generation products; and other risks and uncertainties that are described from time to time in Guidance Software's periodic reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company specifically disclaims any responsibility for updating these forward-looking statements.
