Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures. Tables are provided at the end of this press release that reconcile the non-GAAP financial measures 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 margins, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and the related operating income (loss) margins, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. The method the Company uses to produce non-GAAP financial measures is not computed according to GAAP and may differ from methods used by other companies. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing the Company's liquidity that, when viewed with GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company's cash flows. For more information, please see Shutterfly's SEC Filings.

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, we believe that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information about the Company's core operating results and thus are appropriate to enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past financial performance and its prospects for the future. These adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of the Company's underlying operational results and trends and performance. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company's financial results, develop budgets, manage expenditures, and determine employee compensation. The presentation of additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to net income (loss) or net income (loss) per share determined in accordance with GAAP.
