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, future prospects, and forecasts concerning Keynote's expected revenue, GAAP and Non-GAAP earnings per share and the underlying assumptions related to these forecasts. 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 Keynote's ability to successfully market and sell its services to new or existing customers, especially mobile enterprise customers; the uncertain impact global economic conditions, particularly in Europe, will have on Keynote's business or the businesses of current or potential customers; the timing of achieving customer acceptance for certain of Keynote's products, which affects the timing of revenue recognition; Keynote's ability to develop and introduce new services in a timely manner and customer acceptance of new services; the extent to which demand for Keynote's various services fluctuates; the extent to which existing customers renew their subscriptions and purchase additional services, particularly enterprise customers; Keynote's ability to attract and retain new customers; Keynote's ability to operate its international operations and manage related costs successfully; the impact of changes in foreign exchange rates, which can be significant; Keynote's ability to retain key employees; pricing pressure with respect to Keynote's services; unforeseen expenses; competition in Keynote's markets; costs associated with any future acquisitions; the effect of acquisitions by competitors in Keynote's target markets; and Keynote's ability to keep pace with changes in the mobile and Internet infrastructure as well as other technological changes. 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 was 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 was 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.
