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.
