help us maintain our considerable market-share lead. And consistent
with our strategy of expanding the Informatica footprint with our
marquee customers, we signed the highest-ever number of repeat

    investments, increased demand for real-time decision making, and
    need for unified business views.
  • Expanded relationship with IBM. The existing
    relationship with IBM has been expanded, with the IBM Data
    Management group using Informatica on an OEM basis for DB2
    migrations. IBM and Informatica have also created an
    “On-Demand Performance Management” solution that
    leverages PowerCenter, PowerAnalyzer, and IBM WebSphere Business
    Integration.
  • Completed integration of Striva, a provider of mainframe
    integration solutions.
    The acquisition of Striva was announced
    and completed in the third quarter of 2003, with the former Striva
    team now fully integrated as Informatica employees. Striva’s
    technology extends Informatica’s leadership in comprehensive
    enterprise data integration and business intelligence with its
    innovative mainframe technology for high-speed bulk data movement
    and patented solution for real-time change data capture in legacy
    and non-legacy environments.
  • Informatica Developer Network hit 10,000 members in over 80
    countries.
    Aimed at accelerating the creation of effective
    customer-developed and third-party add-on solutions, the
    two-year-old collaborative online community is unique in the
    industry. The Informatica Developer Network enables customers and
    their in-house developers to interact, share knowledge, and extend
    the business value of their Informatica integration and business
    intelligence implementations.
  • Acknowledged as industry’s leading data integration
    vendor.
    IDC ranked Informatica the leading vendor in the global
    data integration market for the fourth year in a row. The October
    report, “Worldwide Data Integration Software Forecast and
    Analysis, 2002-2007,” ranked Informatica as the leading
    vendor in the data integration space, as measured by revenue. IDC

    Software Leadership Council. The council is a unique, collaborative
    forum bringing together the viewpoints of senior executives from
    more than 30 of the most accomplished software vendors in the
    world.
  • Voted third-most influential IT solutions provider by
    Intelligent Enterprise magazine.
    According to the magazine,
    Informatica was selected for the list based on its strengthened
    focus on data integration, particularly with the acquisition of
    Striva for mainframe data integration and its launch of the
    SuperGlue metadata management solution, “one of the most
    interesting software releases of the year.”
  • Received “Reader’s Choice Award” from
    Intelligent Enterprise magazine.
    The readers of CMP Media’s
    Intelligent Enterprise magazine voted for Informatica PowerCenter
    as their data integration software of choice. Named as part of the

    PowerCenter received the most votes in the category of Data

To supplement the company’s condensed consolidated
financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, Informatica uses
pro forma measures of net income and net income per share, which
are adjusted to exclude certain charges and expenses discussed
above and in the attached supplemental consolidated statements of
operations which the company believes are appropriate to enhance an
overall understanding of its historical financial performance.
These adjustments to the company’s current period GAAP
results are made with the intent of providing both management and
investors a more complete understanding of the company’s
underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace
performance. Informatica believes that the inclusion of these pro
forma financial measures provides consistency and comparability
with its historical reports of financial results, as well as
comparability to similar companies in the company’s industry,
many of which present the same pro forma financial measures to
investors. In addition, these pro forma results are among the
primary indicators management uses as a basis for its planning and
forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional
information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a
substitute for net income or net income per share prepared in
accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the
United States.
