Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements that are not purely historical regarding the company or management’s intentions, hopes, beliefs, expectations and strategies for the future. Because such statements deal with future events, they are subject to various risks and uncertainties, and actual results could differ materially from the company’s current expectations.

Forward-looking statements in this release include, but are not limited to, the closing of the acquisition by Thoma Bravo . It is important to note that actual outcomes and Keynote’s actual results could differ materially from those in such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include risks and uncertainties such as risks related to the stockholder approval of and closing of the acquisition by Thoma Bravo . Readers should also refer to the risks outlined in Keynote’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission , including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2012 , and its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and any current reports on Form 8-K filed during the fiscal year.

All forward-looking statements and reasons why results might differ included in this release are made as of the date of this press release, based on information available to Keynote as of the date of this press release, and Keynote assumes no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements or reasons why results might differ.

Non-GAAP Measures

This press release includes information on Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income per share, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin and free cash flow. These measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Non-GAAP net income is calculated by adjusting GAAP net income (loss) for the provision (benefit) for income taxes, cash taxes from on-going operations, stock-based compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangibles, and any unusual items. In the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration and the expenses associated with the acquisition of DeviceAnywhere were considered unusual items. In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the expenses associated with the announced acquisition by Thoma Bravo were considered an unusual item. Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated by dividing Non-GAAP net income by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Free cash flow is defined as cash flow from operations less cash used to purchase property, equipment and software. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income, taxes, depreciation, amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation, other income (expense), net, and any unusual items. In the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration and the expenses associated with the acquisition of DeviceAnywhere were considered unusual items. In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the expenses associated with the announced acquisition by Thoma Bravo were considered an unusual item. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenue. These measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and because these amounts are not determined in accordance with GAAP, they should not be used exclusively in evaluating the company’s business and operations. Accordingly, the company believes that this non-GAAP information is only useful as an additional means for investors to evaluate the company’s operating performance, when reviewed in conjunction with the company’s GAAP financial statements. Management also uses this information as an additional means for measuring the performance of the company. The company compensates for these limitations by realizing that these amounts are not determined in accordance with GAAP and, therefore, should not be used exclusively in evaluating its business and operations.
