Basis of Presentation and Non-GAAP Measures

Upon emergence from bankruptcy on December 31, 2009, SuperMedia adopted fresh start accounting in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Accordingly, SuperMedia’s 2010 financial results were significantly affected. At December 31, 2009, the balances in deferred revenue and deferred directory costs were adjusted to their fair value of zero, which had a significant non-cash impact on our 2010 consolidated statement of operations. For the readers' convenience, the financial information accompanying this release provides a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results.
