Notes to the First Quarter 2014 Financial Results and Business Outlook

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that the Company defines as adjusted EBITDA less purchases of property, plant, and equipment and capitalization of software development costs.

Non-GAAP earnings per share is defined as non-GAAP net income (loss), which excludes interest expense related to the Company's issuance of 0.25% convertible senior notes in May 2013, divided by diluted non-GAAP shares outstanding, which is GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding less any shares issuable under the Company's convertible senior notes.

Consumer category includes net revenues from stationery and greeting cards, photo books, calendars and photo-based merchandise, photo prints, and the related shipping revenues and rental revenue. Consumer also includes net revenues from advertising and sponsorship programs.

Enterprise category includes net revenues primarily from variable, four-color direct marketing collateral manufactured and fulfilled for business customers.

Average Order Value (AOV) is defined as total net revenues (excluding Enterprise) divided by total orders.

Tables are provided at the end of this press release that reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures that the Company uses to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP gross profit margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and operating margin, adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share.

Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation.
