Transaction with Turn/River Capital

As announced on April 6, 2022, Tufin entered into a definitive agreement whereby funds advised by Turn/River Capital, a U.S.-based private equity firm will acquire all outstanding ordinary shares of Tufin. The shareholders of the Company approved the merger proposal brought before the special general meeting of shareholders held on June 7, 2022, by the requisite majority in accordance with the Israeli Companies Law. The transaction remains on track, subject to the satisfaction of certain additional customary closing conditions. Upon completion of the transaction, the Company’s ordinary shares will no longer be listed on any public market.

In light of the pending transaction, Tufin will not be hosting an earnings conference call to discuss these results and Tufin will not be providing guidance for the third quarter or for the full fiscal year 2022.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude, as applicable, share-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring costs, as well as, the tax effect of these non-GAAP adjustments, allows for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. These non-GAAP financial measures are an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating our operating results over different periods:

  • We define non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit excluding share-based compensation expense.

  • We define non-GAAP operating income (loss) as operating income (loss) excluding share-based compensation expense and expenses associated with the pending merger transaction.

  • We define non-GAAP net income (loss) as net income (loss) excluding share-based compensation expense and expenses associated with the pending merger transaction and the tax effect of these non-GAAP adjustments.

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash expense, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash share-based compensation expense allow for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. In addition, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude expenses associated with the pending merger transaction allow for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period since these non-recurring costs are not representative or indicative of our ongoing operations. We also believe that the tax effects related to the non-GAAP adjustments set forth above do not reflect the performance of our core business and would impact period-to-period comparability.

Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) differently or not at all, which reduces the usefulness these non-GAAP financial measures for comparison. You should consider these non-GAAP financial measures along with other financial performance measures, including gross profit, operating income (loss) and net income (loss), and our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Tufin urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business.

Guidance for non-GAAP financial measures excludes, as applicable, share-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring costs, as applicable. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis due to the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability and significance of, the amounts of share-based compensation expense and certain non-recurring costs, as applicable, that are excluded from the guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures for future periods is not available without unreasonable effort.
