              Yahoo! Inc.
  Note to Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income
This press release and its attachments include the non-GAAP financial
measures of revenues excluding traffic acquisition costs or TAC,
operating income before depreciation, amortization, and stock-based
compensation expense, free cash flow, non-GAAP net income, and non-
GAAP net income per share, which are reconciled to gross profit,
income from operations, cash flow from operating activities, net
income, and net income per share, respectively, which we believe are
the most comparable GAAP measures. We use these non-GAAP financial
measures for internal managerial purposes, when publicly providing
our business outlook, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons.
We describe limitations specific to each non-GAAP financial measure
below. Management generally compensates for limitations in the use of
non-GAAP financial measures by relying on comparable GAAP financial
measures and providing investors with a reconciliation of the non-
GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial
measure or measures. Further, management uses non-GAAP financial
measures only in addition to and in conjunction with results
presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP
financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of
our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a
more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our
business. These non-GAAP measures should be considered as a
supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, gross
profit, income from operations, cash flow from operating activities,
net income, and net income per share calculated in accordance with
GAAP.
Revenues excluding TAC is defined as gross profit plus other cost of
revenues. Under GAAP, both our revenues and cost of revenues include
TAC. In defining revenues excluding TAC as our non-GAAP gross profit
measure, we have removed TAC from both revenues and cost of revenues.
TAC consists of payments made to Affiliate sites and payments made to
companies that direct consumer and business traffic to the Yahoo!
website. We present revenues excluding TAC: (1) to provide a metric
for our investors to analyze and value our Company and (2) to provide
investors one of the primary metrics used by the Company for
evaluation and decision-making purposes. We provide revenues
excluding TAC because we believe it is useful to investors in valuing
our Company. One of the ways investors value companies is to apply a
multiple to revenues. Since a significant portion of the GAAP
revenues associated with our sponsored search offerings is paid to
our Affiliate sites, we believe investors find it more meaningful to
apply multiples to revenues excluding TAC to assess our value as this
avoids "double counting" revenues that are paid to, and being
reported by, our Affiliate sites. Further, management uses revenues
excluding TAC for evaluating the performance of our business, making
operating decisions, budgeting purposes, and as a factor in
determining management compensation. A limitation of revenues
excluding TAC is that it is a measure which we have defined for
internal and investor purposes that may be unique to the Company, and
therefore it may not enhance the comparability of our results to
other companies in our industry who have similar business
arrangements but address the impact of TAC differently. Management
compensates for these limitations by also relying on the comparable
GAAP financial measures of revenues, cost of revenues, and gross
profit, each of which includes the impact of TAC.
Operating income before depreciation, amortization, and stock-based
compensation expense is defined as income from operations before
depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, and stock-based
compensation expense (including the compensation of Terry Semel who
served as our chief executive officer through June 18, 2007 and whose
compensation after June 1, 2006 consisted almost entirely of stock-
based compensation). We consider this measure to be an important
indicator of the operational strength of the Company. We exclude
depreciation and amortization because while tangible and intangible
assets support our businesses, we do not believe the related
depreciation and amortization costs are directly attributable to the
operating performance of our business. This measure is used by some
investors when assessing the performance of our Company. In addition,
because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, the
varying methodologies for determining stock-based compensation
expense, and the subjective assumptions involved in those
determinations, we believe excluding stock-based compensation
enhances the ability of management and investors to understand the
impact of stock-based compensation expense on our operating income.
We do not include depreciation, amortization, and stock-based
compensation expense in our internal measures or in the measures used
by the Company to formulate our business outlook presented with our
quarterly financial information to investors. A limitation associated
with the non-GAAP measure of operating income before depreciation,
amortization, and stock-based compensation expense is that it does
not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and
intangible assets used in generating revenues in our businesses.
Management evaluates the costs of such tangible and intangible assets
through other financial measures such as capital expenditures. A
further limitation associated with this measure is that it does not
include stock-based compensation expense related to the Company's
workforce. Management compensates for these limitations by also
relying on the comparable GAAP financial measure of income from
operations, which includes depreciation, amortization, and stock-
based compensation expense.
Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP measure defined as cash flow from
operating activities (adjusted to include excess tax benefits from
stock-based compensation), less net capital expenditures and
dividends received. We consider free cash flow to be a liquidity
measure which provides useful information to management and investors
about the amount of cash generated by the business after the
acquisition of property and equipment, which can then be used for
strategic opportunities including, among others, investing in the
Company's business, making strategic acquisitions, strengthening the
balance sheet, and repurchasing stock. A limitation of free cash flow
is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the
cash balance for the period. Management compensates for this
limitation by also relying on the net change in cash and cash
equivalents as presented in the Company's unaudited condensed
consolidated statements of cash flows prepared in accordance with
GAAP which incorporates all cash movements during the period.
Non-GAAP net income is defined as net income excluding certain gains,
losses, expenses, and their related tax effects that we do not
believe are indicative of our ongoing operating results and further
adjusted for stock-based compensation expense. Effective January 1,
2006, we adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 123
(revised 2004), "Share-Based Payment" ("SFAS 123R"). In our
calculation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share,
we have excluded stock-based compensation expense calculated in
accordance with SFAS 123R and its related tax effects. We consider
non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share to be
profitability measures which facilitate the forecasting of our
operating results for future periods and allow for the comparison of
our results to historical periods. A limitation of non-GAAP net
income and non-GAAP net income per share is that they do not include
all items that impact our net income and net income per share for the
period. Management compensates for this limitation by also relying on
the comparable GAAP financial measures of net income and net income
per share, both of which include the gains, losses, expenses and
related tax effects that are excluded from non-GAAP net income and
non-GAAP net income per share.
