Fortinet also offered the following update to its guidance for the full year 2017

 

 

Guidance for non-GAAP financial measures excludes stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets. We have not reconciled non-GAAP metrics to GAAP metrics because certain items that impact these measures are uncertain, out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

 

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
