Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On May 3, 2011, ValueClick, Inc. ("ValueClick" or the "Company") announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011 and provided initial guidance for the fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2011. The full text of the press release issued in connection with the announcement is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
The information in this Form 8-K and the Exhibit attached hereto shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
Net income from continuing operations before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, and stock-based compensation expenses ("Adjusted-EBITDA"), a non-GAAP financial measure, is included in the attached press release at Exhibit 99.1. Adjusted-EBITDA, as defined above, may not be similar to Adjusted-EBITDA measures used by other companies and is not a measurement under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Management believes that Adjusted-EBITDA provides useful information to investors about the Company's performance because it eliminates the effects of period-to-period changes in income from interest on the Company's cash and marketable securities and the costs associated with income tax expense, capital investments, and stock-based compensation expense which are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations.
Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share, a non-GAAP financial measure defined as GAAP diluted net income from continuing operations per common share before the impact of stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, and other non-recurring events is also included in the attached press release at Exhibit 99.1. Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share, as defined above, may not be similar to non-GAAP diluted net income per common share measures used by other companies and is not a measurement under GAAP. Management believes that non-GAAP diluted net income per common share provides useful information to investors about the Company's performance because it eliminates the effects of items which are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations.
Management uses Adjusted-EBITDA and Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share in evaluating the overall performance of the Company's business operations.
Though management finds Adjusted-EBITDA and Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share useful for evaluating aspects of the Company's business, its reliance on these measures are limited because excluded items often have a material effect on the Company's earnings and earnings per common share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, management uses Adjusted-EBITDA and Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share in conjunction with GAAP earnings and earnings per common share measures. The Company believes that Adjusted-EBITDA and Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share provide investors with additional tools for evaluating the Company's core performance, which management uses in its evaluation of the Company's overall performance, and a base line for assessing the future earnings potential of the Company. While the GAAP results are more complete, the Company prefers to allow investors to have these supplemental metric since, with a reconciliation to GAAP, it may provide greater insight into the Company's financial results.
The non-GAAP measures included in the press release at Exhibit 99.1 should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, other measures of the Company's results of operations or financial position prepared in accordance with GAAP.
