Guidance

Vocus is providing, for the first time, guidance for the first quarter and full year 2009 based on information as of February 3, 2009:

  •     For the first quarter of 2009, revenue is expected to be in the range of approximately $20.4 million to $20.6 million. Non-GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.13 to $0.14 assuming an estimated non-GAAP weighted average 19.8 million diluted shares outstanding and an estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate of 24%. Amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation, reflecting SFAS No. 123R, is expected to be $0.18 per share. GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $(0.05) to $(0.04) assuming an estimated weighted average 18.1 million basic and diluted shares outstanding;
  •     For the full year of 2009, revenue is expected to be in the range of $88.5 million to $89.5 million. Non-GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $0.61 to $0.63 assuming an estimated non-GAAP weighted average 20.2 million diluted shares outstanding and an estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate of 24%. Amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation, reflecting SFAS No. 123R, is expected to be $0.76 per share. GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $(0.15) to $(0.13) assuming an estimated weighted average 18.2 million basic and diluted shares outstanding. Free cash flow is expected to range from $19.5 million to $20.5 million. Our non-GAAP cash tax rate for 2009 is expected to be at 12%;
  •     The guidance reflects the strengthening of the U.S. dollar which unfavorably impacts expected revenues by approximately $1.6 million for the full year 2009 assuming 2008 average foreign exchange rates. In addition, the guidance does not reflect the future impact, if any, of the stock repurchase program.

Other Supplemental Information

We define non-GAAP income from operations as income from operations excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock-based compensation. We define non-GAAP net income as net income excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation and the income tax benefit related to the reversal of a portion of the valuation allowance against deferred tax assets. Amortization of intangible assets recorded in connection with our acquisitions consist of non-compete agreements, trade names, purchased technology and customer relationships that are not expected to be replaced when fully amortized, as a depreciable tangible asset might. Companies record stock-based compensation under SFAS No. 123R by applying varying valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions to different types of equity awards. The income tax benefit related to the reversal of a portion of the valuation allowance is a non-cash benefit that we do not consider part of our ordinary results of operations. Management uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP net income to evaluate operating performance, to determine incentive compensation and to prepare operating budgets and determine the appropriate levels of capital investments. Management believes the exclusion of amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation under SFAS No. 123R and the income tax benefit related to the reversal of a portion of the valuation allowance allows management and investors to make meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of other companies, as well as providing a consistent comparison of our relative historical financial performance. However, management believes that non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP net income are subject to material limitations since they may not be indicative of ongoing operating results.

We define free cash flow as cash flow from operations less net capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs plus tax benefits from stock-based compensation. Management considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure which provides useful information to management and investors regarding our ability to generate cash from operations that is available for acquisitions and other investments. Management also uses free cash flow as a measure to evaluate performance and determine incentive compensation. Our definition of free cash flow may be different from definitions used by other companies.

Management compensates for the limitations in the use of non-GAAP financial measures by also utilizing GAAP financial measures and by providing investors with a detailed reconciliation between our GAAP and non-GAAP financial results. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in our SEC filings.
