Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition
The information in this report is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), and is not to be incorporated by reference into any filing by eBay Inc. under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, regardless of any general incorporation language contained in such filing.
On October 18, 2006, eBay Inc. announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2006. A copy of eBay’s press release announcing its financial results and certain other information is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
The attached press release includes the following financial measures defined as “non-GAAP financial measures” by the Securities and Exchange Commission: non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP effective tax rate, and free cash flows as well as GAAP amounts excluding the impact of stock-based compensation and the corresponding percentages of net revenues. These measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. See “Unaudited Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income” and “Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income” included in the attached press release for further information regarding these non-GAAP financial measures, including a reconciliation of these measures to the nearest GAAP measures and an explanation of why we include these non-GAAP measures.
The attached press release also contains forward-looking statements relating to eBay’s performance during the remainder of fiscal year 2006 and for the full year 2007. A more thorough discussion of certain factors that may affect eBay’s operating results is included under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in eBay’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
