Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products for

“Revenue and profitability exceeded our expectations in the fourth quarter,

Guidewire Software. “Investments in sales, delivery and new products helped us
to advance our market leadership position in fiscal 2013 by expanding our
customer base, including several key Tier 1 wins and our 50^th PolicyCenter
customer. We also achieved more multi-product and Suite transactions than last
year and achieved the milestone of bringing our 100^th customer into live
production.”

Ryu added, “We believe it is still early days in the global P/C insurance
industry's generational transition from decades-old legacy systems to
flexible, upgradeable platforms for their core operations. We plan to continue
to invest in expanding both our product and sale capabilities in fiscal 2014
to capitalize on this significant opportunity."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures:
Non-GAAP operating income, Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP
earnings per share.

Guidewire believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide
useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and
business trends relating to Guidewire's financial condition and results of
operations. The Company's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare
the company's performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, for
purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation
and for budgeting and planning purposes. The Company believes that the use of
these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to
use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the
Company's financial measures with other software companies, many of which
present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Management of the Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in
isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance
with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is
that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to
be recorded in the Company's financial statements. In addition, they are
subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by
management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in
determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for
these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in
connection with GAAP results. Guidewire urges investors to review the
reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP
financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly
financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single
financial measure to evaluate the Company's business.

Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the
non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are included with the
financial tables at the end of this release.

that we violate their intellectual property rights could substantially harm
