“I’m pleased with our results through the first half of the year as we continue to demonstrate resiliency in our business throughout this global pandemic,” said Alan Trefler, founder and CEO, Pegasystems. “Clients and prospects continue to see value in our solutions, both for their short-term crisis related needs and their longer-term digital transformation goals, and we remain confident in our long-term opportunity.”
“Our subscription revenue grew 38 percent year over year in the first half of 2020, which reflects the impact of passing the midpoint of our cloud transition,” said Ken Stillwell, CFO, Pegasystems. “This impressive result demonstrates the power of growing ACV by more than 20 percent quarter in and quarter out. With over $500 million of cash on the balance sheet and a notable portfolio of enterprise clients, Pega is in a strong position to capture an even greater share of the more than $50 billion market for digital transformation solutions.”
Discussion of Non-GAAP financial measures
To supplement the financial results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”), we provide Non-GAAP measures, including in this release. We utilize several different financial measures, both GAAP and Non-GAAP, to analyze and assess the business’ overall performance, make operating decisions, and forecast and plan for future periods. Our annual financial plan is prepared on both a GAAP and a Non-GAAP basis. We use Non-GAAP measures in the evaluation process to establish management’s compensation because of the importance of these measures in managing the business.

The Non-GAAP measures exclude the effects of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, foreign currency transaction gains and losses, costs arising in connection with the issuance of our convertible senior notes and the related capped call transactions, gains and losses arising from our venture investments, gains and losses from our capped call transactions, gains and losses arising in connection with the change in the format of PegaWorld, and related income tax effects. We believe these Non-GAAP measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and our anticipated future results.
These Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures. They should only be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
