Results of Operations and Financial Condition. On February 1, 2006, Digital River, Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Digital River"), issued a press release announcing its financial results for the three-month and full-year periods ended December 31, 2005, and certain other information. A copy of the press release is furnished 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 year ended December 31, 2004, and Digital River's other public filings with the SEC available at the SEC's Web site (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 net income and earnings per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to primarily exclude certain expenses. We believe that these non-GAAP measures provide 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. The 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. Item 9.01 Financial Statements and Exhibits. (c) Exhibits.
