(1) In the first quarter of 2011, the Company made a change in estimate regarding its remaining service obligations to its annual eFax® subscribers. As a result of system upgrades, the Company is now basing the estimate on the actual remaining service obligations to these customers. As a result of this change, in Q1 2011 the Company recorded a one-time, non-cash increase to deferred revenues of $10.3 million with an equal offset to revenues.

(2) The estimated GAAP effective tax rate was approximately 16.3% for 2011 and 24.9% for 2010. The estimated Non-GAAP effective tax rate was approximately 25% for 2011 and 26.3% for 2010.

(3) For 2011, Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes share-based compensation and related payroll taxes, certain acquisition-related integration costs, the sale of a tradename, the reversal of uncertain income tax positions due to expired statutes of limitations and gain on sale of auction rate securities, in each case net of tax, totaling $0.10. For 2010, Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share excludes share-based compensation and related payroll taxes, certain acquisition-related integration costs, in each case net of tax, totaling $0.15.

(4) Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities, less purchases of property, plant and equipment, plus excess tax benefit from share-based compensation. In addition, the amount shown for 2010 excludes the impact of a $14.2 million payment to the IRS in settlement of an audit for transfer pricing covering tax years 2004 through 2008 which was fully accrued for in prior periods. Including this settlement amount, the Company’s free cash flow for the year was $94.6 million. Free cash flow for 2010 was impacted by approximately $3.4 million, net of tax, of transition and acquisition-related costs.

“I am pleased with both our operational and financial performance for 2011,” said Hemi Zucker, CEO of j2 Global. “We successfully integrated substantially all of Protus IP Solutions, the largest acquisition in the Company’s history. We also significantly broadened our suite of business cloud services with the addition of online backup (KeepItSafe®), email marketing (Campaigner®) and most recently customer relationship management (LandslideCRM™). For 2012, we are continuing our program of acquisitions to further expand our cloud service customer base and services, already closing three transactions this year as we continue to look for larger acquisitions such as Protus®. We are making significant incremental investments to grow our new service offerings, expand our business internationally and develop enhanced cross-selling capabilities.”

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

For fiscal 2012, the Company is leveraging the gains made in 2011 with substantial investments in the new services acquired over the past 15 months, geographic expansion and to take advantage of our initial success with cross-sell efforts launched in 2011. No large acquisitions or new strategic initiatives are included in the guidance below. We anticipate that these investments will position the Company for increased growth in 2013 and beyond.

For fiscal 2012, j2 Global expects revenues of between $345 and $365 million and Non-GAAP net earnings per diluted share to be approximately the same as for 2011.

It is anticipated that the normalized tax rate for 2012 (exclusive of the release of certain FIN 48 reserves) will be between 24% and 26%.

DIVIDEND

The Company’s Board of Directors has approved the declaration of a quarterly cash dividend to its shareholders of $0.21 per common share, a 2.4% increase versus last quarter’s dividend. The dividend will be paid on March 12, 2012 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on February 27, 2012. Future dividends will be subject to Board approval.

SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

j2 Global’s Board of Directors has also approved a share repurchase program, replacing the existing share repurchase program set to expire April 30, 2012. Under the new program, the Company may purchase in the public market or in off-market transactions up to five million shares at any time or times through February 20, 2013. The timing and amounts of any purchases will be determined by the Company from time to time, depending on market conditions and other factors it deems relevant.
