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.”

As of July 16, 2015, SolarWinds is providing its financial outlook for its third quarter of 2015 and full year of 2015. The financial information below represents forward-looking non-GAAP financial information, including an estimate of non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of revenue and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, for the third quarter of 2015 and for the full year 2015. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude, among other items mentioned below, stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes. SolarWinds cannot reasonably estimate the expected stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes for these future periods as the amounts depend upon such factors as the future price of SolarWinds– stock for purposes of computation. In addition, costs related to non-recurring items and acquisitions are not costs that SolarWinds can estimate because they are a function of what non-recurring items and acquisitions, if any, occur and the kind of costs incurred in connection with any such non-recurring items or acquisitions. To determine projected revenue growth rates on a constant currency basis for the third quarter and full year 2015, expected revenue from entities reporting in foreign currencies was translated into U.S. dollars using the comparable prior year period–s average foreign currency exchange rates.

SolarWinds– management currently expects to achieve the following results for the third quarter of 2015:

Total revenue on a reported basis in the range of $130 to $134 million, or 15% to 19% growth over the third quarter of 2014. Total revenue on a constant currency basis in the range of $135 to $138 million, or 19% to 23% growth over the third quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP operating income representing 41% to 42% of revenue.

Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.49 to $0.53.

Weighted average outstanding diluted shares of approximately 77.8 million.

SolarWinds– management currently expects to achieve the following results for the full year 2015:

Total 2015 revenue on a reported basis in the range of $502 to $512 million, or 17% to 19% year-over-year growth. Total revenue on a constant currency basis in the range of $521 to $530 million, or 22% to 24% year-over-year growth.

Non-GAAP operating income for the full year representing 41.5% to 42.0% of revenue.

These forward-looking statements are based on management–s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management. Forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical facts and may be identified by terms such as “believe,” “feel,” “expect,” “will,” “plan,” “intend,” “estimate,” “continue,” or similar expressions and the negatives of those terms. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, the following: (a) the inability to generate significant volumes of sales leads from Internet search engines, marketing campaigns and traffic to our websites; (b) the inability to expand our sales operations effectively; (c) the inability to increase sales to existing customers and to attract new customers; (d) SolarWinds– ability to successfully identify, complete, and integrate acquisitions; (e) the possibility that general economic conditions or uncertainty cause information technology spending to be reduced or purchasing decisions to be delayed; (f) the timing and success of new product introductions and product upgrades by SolarWinds or its competitors; (g) the presence or absence of occasional large customer orders, including in particular those placed by the U.S. federal government; (h) the possibility that our operating income could fluctuate and may decline as percentage of revenue as we make further expenditures to expand our operations in order to support additional growth in our business; (i) potential foreign exchange gains and losses related to expenses and sales denominated in currencies other than the functional currency of an associated entity; and (j) such other risks and uncertainties described more fully in documents filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the risk factors discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2014 filed on February 23, 2015 and the Form 10-Q that SolarWinds anticipates filing on or before August 10, 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.

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.
