Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Eloqua has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. This information includes non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, pro forma weighted average shares outstanding and free cash flow. Non-GAAP operating loss is based on GAAP operating loss and excludes stock-based compensation expense; non-GAAP net loss is based on GAAP net loss and excludes accretion of dividends on redeemable preferred stock, stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of warrants and income tax (benefit) expense; free cash flow is based on net cash (used in) provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment. Eloqua uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures in evaluating Eloqua's ongoing operational performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of GAAP to the non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the tables included as part of this press release.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
