To provide investors and others with additional information regarding Workday-s results, we have disclosed the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, and free cash flows. Workday has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These non-GAAP financial measures, other than free cash flows, differ from GAAP in that they exclude share-based compensation, employer payroll taxes on employee stock transactions, a one-time charge related to our contribution of 500,000 shares of common stock to the Workday Foundation and non-cash interest expense related to our convertible senior notes, as applicable. Free cash flows differ from GAAP cash flows from operating activities in that it treats capital expenditures and assets acquired under a capital lease as a reduction to cash flows.

Workday-s management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, and for internal budgeting and forecasting purposes, for short- and long-term operating plans, and to evaluate Workday-s financial performance and the ability of operations to generate cash. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures reflect Workday-s ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparisons and analysis of trends in Workday-s business, as they exclude expenses that are not reflective of ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating Workday-s operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. Additionally, management believes information regarding free cash flows provides investors and others with an important perspective on the cash available to make strategic acquisitions and investments, to fund ongoing operations and to fund other capital expenditures.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and others in assessing Workday-s operating performance due to the following factors:

Share-based compensation. Although share-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation of Workday-s employees and executives, management believes it is useful to exclude share-based compensation in order to better understand the long-term performance of our core business and to facilitate comparison of our results to those of peer companies. Moreover, determining the fair value of certain of the share-based instruments we utilize involves a high degree of judgment and estimation and the expense recorded may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the vesting or future exercise of the related share-based awards. Unlike cash compensation, the value of stock options, which is an element of our ongoing share-based compensation expense, is determined using a complex formula that incorporates factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond our control.

Employer payroll taxes on employee stock transactions. The amount of employer payroll taxes on employee stock transactions is dependent on Workday-s stock price and other factors that are beyond our control and do not correlate to the operation of the business.

Amortization of debt discount and issuance costs. Under GAAP, we are required to separately account for liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the convertible senior notes that were issued in private placements in June 2013. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes we are required to recognize the effective interest expense on our convertible senior notes and amortize the issuance costs over the term of the notes. The difference between the effective interest expense and the contractual interest expense and the amortization expense of issuance costs are excluded from management-s assessment of our operating performance because management believes that these non-cash expenses are not indicative of ongoing operating performance. Management believes that the exclusion of the non-cash interest expense provides investors an enhanced view of the company-s operational performance.

Equity Grant to Workday Foundation. During the third quarter of fiscal 2013, Workday granted 500,000 shares of common stock to the Workday Foundation. The Workday Foundation is a non-profit organization established to provide grants, humanitarian relief and employee matching contributions and support volunteerism and social development projects. This grant resulted in a one-time charge of $11.3 million, which was recorded to the General and administrative expenses line of the statement of operation. Management does not expect to make future grants of shares to the Foundation and therefore considers this charge non-recurring. As such, management believes it is useful to exclude this one-time charge in order to better understand the ongoing expenses of our core business and to facilitate comparison of our results across periods.

Additionally, we believe that the non-GAAP financial measure, free cash flows, is meaningful to investors because we review cash flows generated from or used in operations after deducting capital expenditures, whether purchased or leased, due to the fact that these expenditures are considered to be an ongoing operational component of our business.

The use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations as they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect Workday-s operations. Workday compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. Management encourages investors and others to review Workday-s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
