Item  12.   Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

           On April 19, 2004, Digital River, Inc., a Delaware corporation
("Digital River"), issued a press release announcing its financial results for
the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2004 and certain other information. A copy of
the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto. The press release includes
"safe harbor" language indicating that certain statements about Digital River's
business and other matters contained in the press release are "forward-looking"
rather than "historic." The press release also states that a more thorough
discussion of certain factors which may affect Digital River's operating results
is included, among other sections, under the captions "Risk Factors" and
"Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations" in Digital River's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2003 which is on file with the SEC and available at the SEC's
website (http://www.sec.gov).

           The attached press release contains certain non-GAAP financial
measures. For purposes of Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a
numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows
that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or
included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in
accordance with GAAP. To supplement our consolidated financial statements
presented in accordance with GAAP, Digital River has supplied non-GAAP measures
of earnings per share. We believe that this non-GAAP measure provides useful
information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses that
may not be indicative of our core operating results. In addition, because we
have historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, we believe the
inclusion of non-GAAP results provides consistency in our financial reporting.
These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in
accordance with GAAP, but are not a substitute for or superior to GAAP results.
These non-GAAP measures included in the attached press release have been
reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure.

                  As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles
generally accepted in the United States.


           Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
