Basis of Presentation and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Upon emergence from bankruptcy on December 31, 2009, SuperMedia adopted fresh start accounting in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, SuperMedia’s 2010 financial results were significantly affected. On 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 2010 consolidated statement of operations. Included in the 2011 and 2010 financial statements are adjustments made in order to provide investors with financial results more closely aligned to SuperMedia’s internal measurement. Pro forma adjustments are transactions related to the fresh start accounting included in the 2010 financial statements. Adjustments and pro forma adjustments are utilized to assist in the comparability of the periods presented.

For the readers’ convenience, the financial information accompanying this release provides a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP and adjusted pro forma non-GAAP results. SuperMedia believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance. Specifically, SuperMedia believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that SuperMedia believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring SuperMedia’s performance and SuperMedia believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes.
