  COLUMBIA, MD, Nov 01 (Marketwire) -- 
Sourcefire, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIRE), a leader in intelligent cybersecurity
solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter
ended September 30, 2012.

    "Sourcefire achieved record revenue for the third quarter. We saw broad
based strength across our business driven by our market-leading FirePOWER
platform and our growing distribution capabilities," said Marty Roesch,
interim CEO of Sourcefire. "Today's sophisticated threats require an
approach that provides continuous capability across all phases of an
attack; before it begins, during the time it is in progress and even
after it is missed by other defenses. Our threat centric approach
addresses the full attack continuum and drives our innovation, resulting
in more effective protection for our customers. This, combined with the
investments we are making in our go-to-market strategy, is enabling us to
achieve significant levels of growth."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Outlook 

    Based on information as of October 30, 2012, Sourcefire expects revenue
for the fourth quarter of 2012 in the range of $62.0 million to $64.0
million, net income per diluted share in the range of $0.03 to $0.05 and,
on an adjusted basis, net income per diluted share in the range of $0.27
to $0.29. Sourcefire's expectation of adjusted net income per diluted
share excludes stock-based compensation expense of $10.0 million to $10.2
million (inclusive of $3.7 million of expense due to vesting acceleration
of restricted shares in connection with the retirement of the Company's
former CEO) and amortization of acquired intangible assets of
approximately $0.3 million, and includes an assumed 35% tax rate. 

    For fiscal year 2012 Sourcefire expects revenue in the range of $217.7
million to $219.7 million, net income per diluted share in the range of
$0.11 to $0.13 and adjusted net income per diluted share in the range of
$0.80 to $0.82. Sourcefire's expectation of full year 2012 adjusted net
income per share excludes stock-based compensation expense in the
expected range of $26.1 million to $26.3 million and amortization of
acquired intangible assets and other acquisition-related expenses of
approximately $2.8 million and includes an assumed tax rate of 35%.

    Non-GAAP Measures

    To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in
accordance with GAAP, Sourcefire considers certain financial measures
that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including non-GAAP
adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, adjusted income from
operations, adjusted income from operations as a percentage of revenue
and free cash flow.

    Sourcefire uses these non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to GAAP
financial measures, to evaluate its operating and financial performance
and to compare such performance to that of prior periods and to the
performance of its competitors. The Company also uses these non-GAAP
financial measures in making operational and financial decisions and in
establishing operational goals. Sourcefire believes that providing these
non-GAAP financial measures to investors, as a supplement to GAAP
financial measures, helps investors to evaluate the Company's operating
and financial performance and trends in its business, consistent with how
management evaluates such performance and trends. The Company also
believes these non-GAAP financial measures may be useful to investors in
comparing its performance to the performance of other companies, although
Sourcefire's non-GAAP financial measures are specific to it and the
non-GAAP financial measures of other companies may not be calculated in
the same manner.

    Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Net Income per Share, Adjusted Income from
Operations and Adjusted Income from Operations as a Percentage of
Revenue: In evaluating the operating performance of its business,
Sourcefire excludes certain charges and credits that are required by
GAAP. These non-GAAP measures exclude (i) stock-based compensation, which
does not involve the expenditure of cash, (ii) amortization of
acquisition-related intangible assets, which does not involve the
expenditure of cash, and (iii) other acquisition-related expenses, which
are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the Company's business in the
ordinary course. For 2012 Sourcefire expects non-GAAP results to be
adjusted to reflect the effect of an assumed tax rate of 35%. This
adjustment is intended to normalize the tax rate and provide a tax rate
that approximates the Company's expected long-term GAAP tax rate. 

    Free Cash Flow: Sourcefire defines free cash flow as net cash provided by
operating activities minus capital expenditures. The Company considers
free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information
to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the
business that, after the purchase of property and equipment, can be used
for strategic opportunities, including investing in the business, making
strategic acquisitions and strengthening the balance sheet.

    These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in
accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for, or
superior to, GAAP results. The non-GAAP measures included in this press
release have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure in the table
following the financial statements attached to this press release.
