“While governmental changes in three key Asia regions and continued economic malaise in Europe impacted our overall number, I am happy to report that we signed up more than 50 new logos in the quarter and we are rolling out a new demand generation program globally,” said Jim McNeil, president and CEO of FalconStor. “Additionally, the increased interest in cloud computing has resulted in more activity surrounding our data migration capabilities. We fully expect our work in migration to have a positive impact on this year’s performance.”
The Company also recently announced the promotion of Gary Quinn to chief operating officer and the hiring of Rob Zecha as chief product officer. The appointments of these two industry veterans were made to further drive the Company’s global deployment of best practices in engineering and in sales and marketing.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company’s management refers to these non-GAAP financial measures in making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company’s operating performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management’s internal comparisons to the Company’s historical operating results and comparisons to competitors’ operating results. We include these non-GAAP financial measures (which should be viewed as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, their comparable GAAP measures) in this press release because we believe they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency into the supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The non-GAAP financial measures exclude (i) costs associated with the Company’s class action and derivative lawsuits, government investigations, and related legal fees and (ii) noncash stock-based compensation charges and any potential tax effects. For a reconciliation of our GAAP and non-GAAP financial results, please refer to our Non-GAAP Operating Data GAAP Reconciliation, presented in this release.
