Non-GAAP financial measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. This non-GAAP information supplements and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles. Non-GAAP financial measures are used internally to manage the business, such as in establishing an annual operating budget and in reporting to lenders. Non-GAAP financial measures are used by Monotype management in its operating and financial decision-making because management believes these measures reflect ongoing business in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Accordingly, Monotype believes it is useful for investors and others to review both GAAP and non-GAAP measures in order to (a) understand and evaluate current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does and (b) compare in a consistent manner the company's current financial results with past financial results. The primary limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures are that these measures may not be directly comparable to the amounts reported by other companies and they do not include all items of income and expense that affect operations. Monotype management compensates for these limitations by considering the company's financial results and outlook as determined in accordance with GAAP and by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release.

Forward-looking statements

This press release may contain forward-looking statements including those related to future revenues and operating results, the growth of the company's Creative Professional business and OEM business, the execution of the company's growth strategy and anticipated business momentum that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause the company's actual results to differ materially. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to: risks associated with changes in the economic climate, including decreased demand for fonts or products that incorporate the company's text imaging solutions; risks associated with the interruption of certain manufacturing chains as a result of natural disasters; risks associated with changes in the financial markets, including the availability of credit; risks associated with increased competition, which may result in the company losing customers or force it to reduce prices; risks associated with the development and market acceptance of new products or product features; risks associated with the company's ability to adapt its products to new markets and to anticipate and quickly respond to evolving technologies and customer requirements; and risks associated with the ownership and enforcement of the company's intellectual property. Additional disclosure regarding these and other risks faced by the company is available in the company's public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the risk factors included in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012 and subsequent filings. The forward-looking financial information set forth in this press release reflects estimates based on information available at this time. These amounts could differ from actual reported amounts stated in the company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2012.
