1 Adjusted-EBITDA is defined as GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation expenses. Please see the attached schedule for a reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted-EBITDA, and a discussion of why the Company believes adjusted-EBITDA is a useful financial measure to investors and how Company management uses this financial measure.

2 Non-GAAP net income excludes stock-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets. Please see the attached schedule for a reconciliation of GAAP net income to non-GAAP diluted net income per common share.

Share Repurchase and Credit Facility Update

During the second quarter, ValueClick repurchased approximately 5.9 million shares of the Company's outstanding common stock for approximately $99.5 million. On June 28, ValueClick's board of directors authorized a $100 million increase to the program, such that $100.5 million of the Company's capital may be used to repurchase shares of the Company's common stock going forward.
