In connection with our acquisition of PowerReviews, which closed in June 2012, we expanded the types of clients that we serve. To reflect differences among our clients and the services that we offer, we now define our clients as "active enterprise clients" and "active network clients," the definitions of which are set forth herein. Historical references to active clients for periods prior to the closing of the acquisition include both active enterprise clients and active network clients on an aggregate basis. As a result of this prospective nomenclature change resulting from our acquisition of PowerReviews, active clients and active client retention rates for periods prior to June 2012 and after June 2012 may not be directly comparable as we have not made this distinction retrospectively. This change also has a corresponding impact on metrics that are driven by the number of clients, such as revenue per active client.
