We may make forward-looking statements about, among other matters, revenue and revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA margin, earnings per share, cash flow, sales pipelines and strategic initiatives. Inclusion of this forward-looking information should not be regarded as a representation by us that we will achieve future plans, estimates or expectations. Such forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties and assumptions. A number of important factors could cause our actual results or performance to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which the statement is made, or to reflect occurrence of unanticipated events. Please refer to our earnings release, which can be found at our website at, for a discussion of these risk factors. You should also refer to our earnings release for an explanation of the non-GAAP financial measures discussed during this call, and for a reconciliation of those measures to the nearest applicable GAAP measures. These non-GAAP measures are indicators that management uses to provide additional, meaningful comparisons between current results and prior reported results and as a basis for planning and forecasting for future periods.
