  • GAAP gross margins were 73% in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 79% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

  • GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $8.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.  Gigamon considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of the company, exclusive of unusual events or factors that do not directly affect what we consider to be our core operating performance, and are used by the company's management for that purpose. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company. Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the company's operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure attached to this release.

Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
