The Company has been informed by its independent registered public accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche LLP, that the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”) conducted an inspection of the audit that Deloitte & Touche LLP performed relating to the Company’s financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2010. Deloitte & Touche has also informed the Company that in connection with this inspection the PCAOB has raised certain questions regarding the Company’s accounting treatment of goodwill of $12.7 million relating to its acquisition of Make the Web Better in the second quarter of 2010. As a result, the Company is currently evaluating these questions and considering whether any change to the Company’s accounting for this transaction would be necessary. If the Company were to determine that a change in the accounting for this transaction is necessary, the Company expects to be required to restate its financial statements for the second quarter of 2010 and all subsequent periods, including its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010. Any change in the accounting would likely result in a non-cash charge, and the resulting restatement would not affect the Company’s previously reported revenue or Adjusted EBITDA. The Company believes that any such restatement would primarily impact 2010, and that it would not have a material effect on the quarter ended September 30, 2011.
