In particular, the following factors, among others, could cause results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements: the market for on-demand services may develop more slowly than expected or than it has in the past; adverse and unpredictable macro-economic conditions or reduced investments in on-demand applications and information technology spending; quarterly operating results may fluctuate more than expected; unexpected disruptions of service at one or more of our data centers may occur; a security breach may impact operations; risks associated with material defects or errors in our software or the effect of undetected computer viruses could impact operations; the risk of technological developments and innovations by others; our ability to successfully identify other businesses and technologies for acquisition that will complement our business and the ability to successfully acquire and integrate those businesses and technologies; the risk of loss of power or disruption in Internet service; failure to manage growth and effectively scale the organisation; failure to protect and enforce our intellectual property rights; assertions by third parties that we infringe their intellectual property rights; the ability to manage operations when faced with competitive pricing and marketing strategies by competitors or changing macro-economic conditions; the risk of losing key employees; evolving government regulation of the Internet, data privacy and ecommerce; changes to current accounting rules; changes in foreign exchange rates; and general political or destabilising events, including war, conflict or acts of terrorism; and other risks and uncertainties.

For a detailed discussion of these and other cautionary statements, please refer to the risk factors discussed in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including but not limited to our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 24, 2016 and any subsequently filed reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K.  All documents are available through the SEC's Electronic Data Gathering Analysis and Retrieval system ("EDGAR") at www.sec.gov or NetSuite's website at www.netsuite.com.sg.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Our stated results include certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating income, net income, weighted average shares outstanding, and net income per share.  Non-GAAP operating income excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation expense, amortisation of intangible assets, transaction costs for business combinations and costs associated with Oracle's pending purchase of NetSuite.  Non-GAAP net income excludes expenses related to stock-based compensation expense, amortisation of intangible assets, transaction costs for business combinations, costs associated with Oracle's pending purchase of NetSuite, non-cash interest expense on convertible debt and income tax benefit associated with business combination.  Non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income exclude these expenses as they are often excluded by other companies to help investors understand the operational performance of their business, and in the case of stock-based compensation, can be difficult to predict.  We believe these adjustments provide useful comparative information to investors.

We consider these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of our operating performance and are used by our management for that purpose.  In addition, investors often use measures such as these to evaluate the operating performance of a company.  Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding our operating results.  The non-GAAP results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
