We present non-GAAP supplemental performance measures in this press release. We have presented this financial information because we believe the exclusion of non-cash charges allows for a more relevant comparison of our results of operations to other companies used by industry analysts and investors to compare our performance against that of our peer group and they provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core operating performance.
We use non-GAAP financial measures to help us make strategic decisions, establish budgets and operational goals for managing our business, analyze our financial results, and evaluate our performance. We also believe that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our core business and results of operations over multiple periods with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. However, non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies due to differences in the way that these measures are calculated. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as the sole measure of our performance and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial statements portion of this release.
In the second quarter of 2021, non-GAAP gross profit was $28.3 million, or 82% of revenue, non-GAAP operating expenses were $16.2 million, or 47% of revenue, non-GAAP income from operations was $12.0 million, or 35% of revenue and non-GAAP net income was $12.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share.
