“New World Systems is highly complementary to Tyler and the combination supports our strategy of being an industry leader in all major enterprise applications essential to local government,” said John S. Marr Jr., Tyler’s president and CEO. “We’re pleased to welcome New World’s clients and team of professionals to the Tyler family, and we look forward to integrating Tyler’s Odyssey courts and justice solution with New World’s public safety platform to create a unique end-to-end enterprise criminal justice solution.”

These estimates are non-GAAP measures that reflect certain adjustments Tyler makes to provide insight into operating results. A description of those adjustments is provided below.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Tyler Technologies has provided in this press release guidance and estimates with respect to non-GAAP financial measures. We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating Tyler’s ongoing operational performance. Tyler believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures discussed above exclude: the impact of fair value adjustments required under GAAP relating to acquired customer support contracts which would have otherwise been recognized on a standalone basis; share-based compensation expense and the employer portion of payroll taxes on employee stock transactions; and expenses associated with amortization of intangibles arising from business combinations; and fees and expenses associated with acquisitions. Because Tyler does not predict special items that might occur in the future, and its outlook is developed at a level of detail different than that used to prepare GAAP financial measures, Tyler is not providing a reconciliation to GAAP of its forward-looking financial measures for the year ending December 31, 2016.
We use these measures and believe they are useful to investors because they provide additional insight in comparing results from period to period. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP measures used by Tyler Technologies may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
