HAMILTON, BERMUDA—July 30, 2009—Vistaprint Limited (Nasdaq:VPRT), the small business marketing company, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2009.
"Vistaprint delivered outstanding results for the quarter and for the full year, despite the macroeconomic and currency-related headwinds we encountered most of the year," said Robert Keane, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Our talented employees continued to execute across functions, geographies and product lines, which is especially impressive in the context of our decision nine months ago to slow down our rate of investment due to the onset of the recession and the deterioration of currency exchange rates. As a result, we showed significant leverage in our business in 2009."

* Gross margin (revenue minus the cost of revenue as a percent of total revenue) in the fourth quarter was 63.1 percent, compared to 60.6 percent in the same quarter a year ago. For the full fiscal year, gross margin was 62.8 percent, compared to 61.5 percent in fiscal 2008.
* Operating income in the fourth quarter was $15.1 million, or 11.2 percent of revenue, and reflected a 33 percent increase compared to operating income of $11.3 million, or 10.3 percent of revenue, in the same quarter a year ago.
