Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for standing by. And welcome to the GTY Third Quarter 2019 Earnings Call.
I will now turn the call over to John Curran, Chief Financial Officer of GTY. Mr. Curran, the floor is yours.
Thank you and good morning everyone. I'm John Curran, GTY's CFO. And I would like to welcome you to our third quarter earnings conference call for 2019. With me on today's call are Steve Rohleder, GTY's CEO and Chairman, and Harry You, GTY's Vice Chairman.
Please note that our earnings release and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q are available on the GTY website at www.gtytechnology.com, both contain highly detailed information about our financial results. During the call, we may use a non-GAAP financial measure, if we believe it is useful to investors or if we believe it will help investors better understand our results or business trends. You can see a reconciliation of certain items from GAAP to non-GAAP in Exhibit 2 of the earnings release.
Any forward-looking statements we made in the earnings release or any that we may make during this call are based on information that we believe to be true as of today. Things up and change, however, and actual results may differ materially from those projected or anticipated. Please refer to our cautionary statements in the earnings release under the heading forward-looking statements. You should also refer to our SEC filings, including our prospectus on Form 424B4 filed on June 6, 2019, for a list of risk factors applicable to GTY.

During the quarter, we hired over 20 new sales and marketing professionals to the team and we expect to add a similar number in Q4 as we build out our organization to support our 2020 growth plans.
