Tintri Remain Confident In Its Competitive Position And In The Strength Of Its Value Proposition

Tintri, Inc. reported results for its second quarter fiscal 2018 ended July 31, 2017.

In the quarter, we received the largest order in the company’s history and added new enterprise logos. Additionally, we experienced continued momentum in our land-and-expand strategy with more purchases from current customers. We enter the second half of our fiscal year having just announced a new all-flash platform and additional software offerings—these further enhance our differentiation and better enable our customers to transition to the enterprise cloud.”

Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook

As we look ahead, we are providing the following outlook for the quarter ending October 31, 2017. We expect:

  • Revenue in the range of $36 to $37 million;

  • Non-GAAP loss per share in the range of ($0.77) to ($0.81), using 31.2 million weighted-average shares outstanding.

All forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures contained in this section titled "Third Quarter Fiscal 2018 Financial Outlook" exclude stock-based compensation expense, payroll tax expense related to stock-based activities, and, as applicable, other special items. We have not reconciled guidance for non-GAAP loss per share to its most directly comparable GAAP measure because the items that have been excluded are uncertain and cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure guidance to the corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable effort.
