We are seeing validation that we have the right strategy as we continue to make transformational
investments that position us to take advantage of pivotal trends driving growth on the Internet.”

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 GAAP revenue, 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, GAAP revenue, 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 GAAP revenue less TAC. 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 (also referred to as operating cash flow) 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 stockbased
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. Previously, in reporting results for 2006 and 2007, for comparative purposes, stock-based compensation expense
calculated in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 123 (revised 2004), “Share-based Payment,” and its related tax effects
were excluded in calculating non-GAAP net income. No such adjustment is made to non-GAAP net income numbers reported in this press release and its
attachments since net income amounts reported in 2007 and 2008 in each case include stock-based compensation expense. 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.
