Ned Harding, chief technology officer (CTO) and co-founder, has decided to step down from the CTO position. Mr. Harding will serve in an advisory capacity to the board of directors and executive management through 2019. The board of directors has appointed Derek Knudsen as CTO, effective August 13, 2018. Mr. Knudsen will be responsible for software engineering, engineering operations, and information technology. In addition, the board of directors has appointed Scott Jones, the company’s chief revenue officer (CRO), as president and CRO. Mr. Jones joined the company in January 2017 as CRO, and as president he will be responsible for all go-to-market activities, including marketing.

The entire Alteryx team thanks him for everything he has done over the past two decades,” said Stoecker. “In order to support our continued growth, we are making a few organizational changes. With Ned’s transition to an advisor, we have the opportunity to reimagine the CTO role for a rapidly growing organization and I’m pleased to welcome Derek Knudsen to the Alteryx community as our new CTO. In addition, we have appointed Scott Jones, our CRO, as President and CRO of Alteryx, consolidating all of our go-to-market activities under Scott to best position Alteryx for sustained growth for years to come.”
As of August 8, 2018, guidance for the third quarter 2018 and full year 2018 is as follows:Third Quarter 2018 Guidance: Revenue is expected to be in the range of $49.0 million to $50.0 million.Non-GAAP loss from operations is expected to be in the range of $(2.5) million to $(3.5) million.Non-GAAP net loss per share is expected to be in the range of $(0.04) to $(0.06) based on approximately 61.5 million non-GAAP weighted-average basic and diluted shares outstanding. Full Year 2018 Guidance: Revenue is now expected to be in the range of $191.0 million to $193.0 million.Non-GAAP loss from operations is now expected to be in the range of $(13.0) million to $(15.0) million.Non-GAAP net loss per share is now expected to be in the range of $(0.24) to $(0.27) based on approximately 61.0 million non-GAAP weighted-average basic and diluted shares outstanding.
The financial outlook above for non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss per share exclude estimates for stock-based compensation expense, acquisition related adjustments, amortization of debt discount, and other non-recurring items. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis primarily as a result of the uncertainty regarding, and the potential variability of, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition related adjustments, amortization of debt discount, and other non-recurring items. In particular, stock-based compensation expense is impacted by our future hiring and retention needs, as well as the future fair market value of our Class A common stock, all of which is not within our control, is difficult to predict, and is subject to constant change. The actual amount of these expenses during 2018 will have a significant impact on our future GAAP financial results. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial guidance measures to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Operating Measures
To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, and non-GAAP weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. The presentation of these financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
We use non-GAAP measures to internally evaluate and analyze financial results. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and enable comparison of our financial results with other public companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures. We exclude the following items from one or more of our non-GAAP financial measures:
Stock-based compensation expense. We exclude stock-based compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that excluding this item provides meaningful supplemental information regarding operational performance. In particular, companies calculate stock-based compensation expense using a variety of valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions.
Acquisition related adjustments. We exclude amortization of intangible assets and changes in fair value of contingent consideration, and related income tax adjustments, which are non-cash, related to business combinations from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures. We exclude such expenses as they are related to a business combination and have no direct correlation to the operation of our business.
Accretion of Series A redeemable convertible preferred stock. We exclude accretion relating to our Series A redeemable convertible preferred stock from non-GAAP net loss per share because this is a non-cash item that will not recur in the periods following the three months ended March 31, 2017.
Convertible senior notes adjustments: We exclude the portion of amortization of debt discount and income tax adjustments that relate to the equity component of our convertible notes, which are non-cash, from certain of our non-GAAP financial measures. We exclude such expenses as they are non-cash and have no direct correlation to the operation of our business.
In addition, we adjust non-GAAP weighted-average diluted shares outstanding to include the conversion of the redeemable convertible preferred stock into shares of common stock as though the conversion had occurred at the beginning of each of the respective periods.
Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, we exclude stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and amortization of debt discount which are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future. The non-GAAP measures we use may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. We compensate for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP items excluded from these non-GAAP financial measures.
The company also uses annual recurring revenue (ARR) as one of our operating measures to assess the health and trajectory of our business. ARR should be viewed independently of revenue and deferred revenue as ARR is a performance metric and is not intended to be combined with any of these items. ARR represents the total annual contract value for active customer subscription contracts as of the measurement date.
