These forward-looking statements are based on management's current expectations or beliefs and are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Among other things, management has prepared the estimated revenues and earnings per share information above in good faith based upon j2s internal reporting for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012. Such information has not yet been subject to j2s normal quarterly financial closing processes and its independent registered public accounting firm has not commenced its review of these results.

RECONCILIATION OF ESTIMATED NON-GAAP EARNINGS PER SHARE TO ESTIMATED EARNINGS PER SHARE
We disclose Non-GAAP Earnings per Share as a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure to enhance the publics, analysts, investors and our own understanding of, and highlight trends in, our Earnings per Share excluding the impact of share-based compensation and related taxes and items, if any, that we believe are not representative of our core operations.
The following table sets forth a reconciliation of estimated Q2 2012 Non-GAAP Earnings per Share to estimated Q2 2012 Earnings per Share, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure:
|Low Estimate||High Estimate|
|Revenues||$88.8 million||$89.5 million|
|Net Income||$30.3 million||$31.4 million|
|Net Income per Diluted Share||$0.66||$0.68|
|Non-GAAP Net Income per Diluted Share(1)||$0.68||$0.71|
(1) Non-GAAP Earnings per Share excludes share-based compensation totaling approximately $0.03.
Non-GAAP Earnings per Share is not in accordance with, or an alternative to, Earnings per Share, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, Non-GAAP Earnings per Share is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. This non-GAAP measure has limitations in that it does not reflect all of the amounts associated with the companys results of operations determined in accordance with GAAP.
