About non-GAAP financial measures
To supplement Vistaprint's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Vistaprint has used the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted net income per diluted share. The item excluded from the non-GAAP measurements is share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" included at the end of this release. The table has more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures and the related reconciliation between these financial measures.
Share-based compensation expense
Vistaprint adopted SFAS 123(R), Share-Based Payments, on July 1, 2005 and began expensing the fair value of share option grants issued to employees and directors. Prior to that date, the Company had accounted for share option grants under the provisions of APB No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees, and therefore had not recorded any compensation expense related to such grants. Management has excluded share-based compensation expense and its related tax effect, if any, from the non-GAAP measurements for fiscal years 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
