Quarterly Conference Call

A conference call will be webcast live today at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET and will be available through February 28, 2011, at . This call may contain forward-looking statements and other material information regarding the Company's financial and operating results.

About Non-GAAP Financial Information

The accompanying press release dated February 8, 2011, contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Tables are provided in the press release that reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP consolidated net income and the related per diluted share amounts, non-GAAP consolidated operating income, and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP financial measure adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and acquisition-related expenses. Within the Company's reconciliation to non-GAAP diluted net income per share, the impact of undistributed earnings allocated to participating securities has been excluded.

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. Management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation, acquisition-related expenses, and amortization of acquired intangibles because they do not reflect the underlying performance of the Company's business operations. These adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company's financial results. The presentation of non-GAAP measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to financial results determined in accordance with GAAP.

Background Information

The Company reports consolidated operations in U.S. dollars and operates in two geographic segments: North America and International. The North America segment is comprised of all operations in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and the International segment is comprised of all non-North America operations, which includes operations in Europe and Asia. The Company generates substantially all of its revenues from its restaurant customers; it does not charge any fees to diners for reservations. The Company's revenues primarily include installation fees for the Electronic Reservation Book (including training), monthly subscription fees and a fee for each restaurant guest seated through online reservations. The financial results and other information in this press release reflect the acquisition of toptable.com, as applicable.
